The End is Here


The end of another year. As we all ask; “Where did it go”? Well, it was not any faster than the last year, and it is never slower, as some days may feel. We get so busy the days seem to disappear quickly making the year suddenly come to an end. What is the down side..? We can miss the fun stuff or forget about the fun stuff we experienced. Well, I am here to bring the fun to the surface one last time before the year concludes. With that I also want to thank all of you who visit my blog. For those who choose to follow my blog and/or leave a comment, I offer an added amount of gratitude. I have been gaining confidence to go out in my heels and at times expose more of them in lieu of covering them up. More family members are aware of my desire to wear heels as well as some of the Mrs. friends.

I have obtained some more heels at the end of this year and that means I have not been doing a good job reducing my shopping. I may have to start finding heels I will not wear out and begin selling them on eBay. I am sure I will buy more πŸ˜‰ but at least they will be in the hands of someone who will wear them.

Hope you had a happy holiday and I wish you all a very Happy New Year!!! High Heels for All!!! πŸ˜‰

Up first are a pair of Betsy Johnson’s from DSW. They have a fantastic blue hue not depicted well in a picture. The bottoms have a great powder blue color as well. I obtained these from out of town and when I checked out, the gentleman at the counter was disappointed I was taking the last pair in his size. A little satisfying to know they are well liked. Found them in the Mrs. size but the style is slightly different as they have one open side. I would love those as well but they are not in available in my size.

These are Steve Maddens from DSW. I had to return them as the vamp was to tight. You might be able to see that in the picture. They are a fantastic heels and I would have loved to keep them as I enjoy ankle straps and the color is great, but someone needs to enjoy them in public. πŸ˜‰

Another pair of Steve Maddens from DSW. These have a very elegant sparkly back and heel cover. The satin material; I find often are very unforgiving and make for a stiff upper and a little snug. These were obtained a few years ago on clearance.

A great pair of almond toe suede pumps by Jessica Simpson; obtained about four years ago from DSW on clearance. They are very comfy. The Mrs. liked them. πŸ˜‰

Β A great pair of patent white strappy sandals by Jante. They have a clear platform and heel. I got these about nine years ago from eBay. This designer is hit and miss for me; the sizing seems to be sporadic. These fit very well and they are comfortable. πŸ˜‰

A pair of boots I obtained this fall from DSW are these work boots by Dirty Laundry. They also had them in black. I have not worn them out other than to the air port yet. Very comfortable and although the heel is shorter than I like, I do like these. They will be good for shoveling light snow. Love the neon yellow fishnet socks. πŸ˜‰

Again with my awesome socks, this time in some great heelless electric blue round toe pumps by Styluxe. I got these from eBay about three years ago. They are a little snug and I am hoping to get them stretched out so I can wear them out to dinner sometime. πŸ˜‰

I obtained these strappy black and white platforms sandals by Jessica Simpson from DSW this fall. They are very comfortable and they look great with the white heel; I am hoping to wear them out to dinner soon. It is a little cold out but I enjoy heels enough to tough it out. πŸ˜‰

These cork strappy platform sandals byΒ Enzo Angiolini were obtained from eBay this fall. They had a double instep strap but I had to remove one so they would fit better. I have had to do this from time to time and only do it to heels I cannot return; so often it is on heels obtained from eBay. They are some great looking heels and I may get them out to dinner this next summer. πŸ˜‰

Another acquisition from eBay are these BCBG Generation wedges with a white knot vamp. The straps are very soft and comfortable. These are going to be a shoe for the boat next summer. πŸ˜‰

Another boat shoe are these wedges by Sketchers. They look like a nautical theme with the blue and white strip straps and the style of the sole and cork wedges. Love them and they are comfortable. The only thing I dislike is the difficulty putting them on. The straps are ribbon like; although comfortable it makes it necessary to use your hands to put them on. πŸ˜‰

These platform sandals in a taupeΒ upper with a wood heel and snake skin buckle straps, were obtained from eBay this fall. They are made by Circa Joan David Luxe. A fantastic deal for sure and I love all the details. The instep straps are a little tight but not to bad.

These black patent, red heel and animal print heel cap pumps are by Torrid. The heel cap and heel are a suede material. I obtained them from eBay for a great price. Very comfortable and they look fantastic. I have not had a lot of luck with the quality of Torrid shoes but these are not bad. πŸ˜‰

I obtained these wood sculpted heels with a green strappy upper from eBay for an extremely good deal. They are unique and unusual. I think they are going to be another fishing shoe. They are made by Ashro.

I love orange and these open toe suede pumps with a wood stack heel are by Steve Madden. I got them from eBay late this summer. I have a similar pair by another designer but they are a little different. Some day I will have the nerve to wear them out. πŸ˜‰

Another eBay purchase are these espadrille wedges with a denim sandal upper are from Calvin Klein. These are certainly a fishing shoe but I think they will go well with some jeans for dinner. πŸ˜‰

I obtained these BCBG Generation wedges from eBay this fall. I like the rugged tread and the cork wedge. The nudeΒ vamp is great and with the additional color of the white ankle strap makes these very flashy and universal. I was a little leery about the insole but when I put them on, the look certainly is intriguing. πŸ˜‰

These Pleaser open toe patent black heels have a red detail around the ankle strap, vamp and sole. I obtained these about ten years ago from eBay. They are going to need some repair as one of the elastic straps is starting to come loose. I think they are certainly one of the sexiest looking styles. πŸ˜‰

These Zigi Soho heels in brown have a tie instep and ankle strap. The round toe is very comfortable. The platform and heel is a wood looking man made material. I wore these DSW finds to dinner this last fall.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ˜‰
