The Eternal Wait


Here we are, the conclusion of February, the beginning of March and thinking “When is the warm weather going to start?” Perhaps the thoughts are a little more aggressive; “I have had enough of the ~bleep bleep~ cold!” ๐Ÿ˜‰

How ever we express our displeasure with the winter temperatures we are all after the same thing; fun in the warm sun! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Whether it is to conduct activities outside, wearing lighter cloths, dresses, skirts or to just enjoy the sun on our skin one thing certainly is on my mind… Heels! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes, I am a little strange in that way. But here is the fun part; it is not only for me to wear them out more comfortably but to also see all the fantastic gals in their fabulous footwear as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Took a little vacation earlier in the month of February and only brought along one pair of heels. I have a few photos of them in this post along with the others I have purchased recently; yes still with the shameful, poor conduct of purchasing more heels but I also have got through a few more pairs from the past.

To make room for the better and more recent styles, I have been collecting the heels I do not fit into well or do not find myself in the position of wearing, to pass them on to others. I will be selling some I am sure but many are just going to be handed out to the good will stores. I have given some to a friend of the family recently who happens to find it difficult obtaining heels to fit. Discovered this to be true even with the selections I offered. But some were found to be a good match. ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

On with the display! Enjoy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

First up are the most recent acquisition from DSW are these strappy tie up sandals in a mate black are by Jessica Simpson. I do not recall but these may have been on clearance as well. I ordered them on line. I wore them a few times while on our vacation earlier in February. Very comfortable heel and hope to get them out to dinner. The best part is the tie up which allows one to adjust the upper to fit your feet perfectly. ๐Ÿ˜‰

These wedges by Steve Madden also from DSW are tan and black. The ankle strap has a velcro type closure and the cover of the wedges is a fabric. Certainly a fishing shoe this summer. I will admit I may have posted these before and I will further my admission to not checking to make sure. ๐Ÿ˜‰

These sheer or mesh upper pumps have a gold rectangular shaped heel &ย gold bottom and a patent toe cap. Comfortable and sexy; most certainly an elegant shoe. I will wear them with jeans to dinner some day; they are an awesome find. I was worried at first thinking they would be to tight but they are comfortable. Obtained from DSW made by Two Lips. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Found these in a local DSW and they come in some fun bright colors. These are by Mix No. 6; a nude platform pump. Slightly snug on me but not terrible. They have a unique pattern in the material; I was not able to get a decent shot depicting that however. A great Valueย as well; if I recall they were regular priced around $35.

Another DSW clearance item ordered from online are the Levity open toe Dorsey pumps in black and tan. The black is a smooth material where as the tan is a suede. A little snug around the toe box area on me but I find that ok so the shoe does not slip off while walking.

A Steve Madden Dorsey pointed toe pump that fits wonderfully! Love the cobalt blue to box; goes well with the snake skin texture of the heel cap. DSW sure gets a lot of my attention and when I can find a blue I like, I am going to have to get as much as I can. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Found these Steve Madden Platform pumps on clearance in another local DSW. They have a quilted pattern and are comfortable. You may see a bit of loose stitching on one of the toe boxes; I think this was the reason for the clearance. I personally do not mind as they have no effect on the shoes. I like the semigloss finish on this particular style upper and black is always a good color. I felt I should try some of my legwarmers out while on my last job as the cold weather certainly was a good motivator. I think these went very well. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My first pair of Material Girl heels ever. These patent nude sandals with an ankle strap was the discovery for this designer. They are comfortable and I do find them appealing. DSW online store was where I found them.

These are a pair of Spiky marbled blue open toe pumps with a bow embellishment by Herstyle. I found these on eBay. They look great, fit fine and feel extremely cheap when walking in them. They were very inexpensive on eBay and after this experience I am not sure I will purchase this brand again. A friend of the Mrs.ย sister loves them and I may hand them off to him.

Lastly on this post is a Christmas gift from the Mrs. this last season. By Pleaser are these purple platform pumps with anย instep strap black, ribbon &ย frilly embellishments. The purple has these great pinstripes and I just love the look.

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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.

ย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

These cork strappy platform sandals byย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

These platform sandals in a taupeย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I obtained these BCBG Generation wedges from eBay this fall. I like the rugged tread and the cork wedge.

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.

The Eminent Cool Down of Summer


These past months has been very fun. Several projects have been accomplished and started. Reupholstering some things, sewing some curtains, house work, fishing, bike riding… It just never stops. I enjoy helping friends and family with things but I also enjoy going to work. Yes, I have been told I am strange with that thought process. ๐Ÿ˜‰ That being said we are starting to experience some of the natural actions of our rotation around the sun; cooling down, less daylight and trying to fit in all those last minute summer desires. The odd and unusual weather patterns continue with tons of rain in the Midwest… I dare to say what will this winter be like..? One of the fun things I did recently was taking my aunt shoe shopping at the end of July. We got her a few new pairs of heels; she has been wearing them at work and sending me pictures. She looks fantastic in heels! I guess this helps me not acquire more heels for me and I still get to shop for them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

In this post I am completing the pictures I took while at my last assignment; they did not fit in the last post. I have obtain a few new pairs recently but they will come on the next post. I still have a large pile of currently owned heels to take pictures of; I may get all my heels posted by the end of the year if I continue pressing forward, than again, I may get busy again. Someday though, it will be all new acquisitions. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have more pictures in this post with some of my outfits I wore to work with my heels. Hope you enjoy them as well. On with the show. ๐Ÿ˜‰

These are a pair of silver mules by Fredericks of Hollywood. Obtained over ten years ago. I also am wearing some fun socks I found at DSW on clearance and a jean skirt I found in a thrift shop.

These T-strap sandals are a nude with gold sole made by Franco Sarto. Won these on eBay this summer. I like the color and they are rather comfortable. A slight chunky heel is a helpful style to go from dress up to dress down.

A patent black sandal I obtained from Nordstrom Rack about five years ago. Got the Mrs. a pair as well. They have a zipper side and I am not able to zip them up often as it is a tight fit. I think there is a unique look about them with the zipper left down. These are made by Preview International.

These ankle cuff cork wedges in brown have chain embellishments on the ankle cuff which zips up the back. The upper is canvas material and frayed at the edges.

Another great pair of patent black heels by Fredericks of Hollywood. A cross vamp style & complete open toe. The cross straps lead around to the heel cup and have a buckle embellishment. The gold piping is very striking. As much as I like them, wearing them a long time is tough as the vamp is in an odd position and rubs the big toe sometime. It might just be me being a male. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Summer that Was (Not)


The pains we have had this spring and summer here in Minnesota; Wanting so bad to have some nice weather, only to get some nice weather, sporadically!!! One day here, a couple days there, with rain and cold spells in the mix. It has been very trying on the patience!!! Every day off I have is a bad weather day, minimal fishing and reduced desire to leave the house, leaving me wearing heels into work most of the time. I did fall off the wagon and get a few new heels recently. I say good for me! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well, on with the show and hopefully we will get a stretch of nice HOT weather before the deep freeze. A couple things to look for; first the several fantastic pedicures and also some of the outfits I was wearing at the time. Several are scrubs but a few are suits and a few skirts along with some fun socks. Good summer to all!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

These are green cross strap sandals with a wood heel andย some yellow detail stitching. Made by Colin Stuart and obtained from Ebay several years ago. Funny thing, from this photo shot, some glue on a strap failed and I was left with a choice of repair, toss them or modify them. I cut the strap off and matched the other shoe so now they have a single strap on the vamp. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here are a nude pair of espadrille platform sandals with an ankle strap and heel cap made by Torrid. A recent purchase from Ebay. I was always curious about this designers fit and found them to fit well. The shoe is a little flimsy which is a little disappointing but I still like them.

A coral ankle strap platform sandal by Newport News. The vamp and ankle strap are cord which do not give much so they do not stretch. I got these over ten years ago. They are fun but a little snug.

A pair of sexy heels I have had for at least twelve years, obtained from Ebay. These are by The Highest Heel. A strappy platform sandal with a silver heel embellished with rhinestones. They are going to be a pair I sell as the instep strap is fixed so it does not allow for a comfortable fit. It is a bummer as I really like these heels but someone else can sport them and show off there sexy appeal. ๐Ÿ˜‰

An acquisition a few weeks ago from DSW, these Steve Madden wedges are very comfortable and are a great everyday versatile summer shoe.

Here are one of the few pairs of a boot or booties I have. They are by Madden Girl, purchased at DSW about six years ago. I like the look they have with the zipper detail and the open toe. They lace up to give a good fit. For me the length of the shoe is not good as my toes are a little hung over. These are going to be passed on in a sale for sure. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A great find on Ebay a few weeks ago, these Calvin Klein espadrille wedges have a denim upper. Very comfortable and fun. I have not worn a wedge out to dinner yet and these may go well with my attire as I always wear jeans when we go out. They will also do well on the boat when fishing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have said it before and I will say it again, I just love love love wood heels!!! These beauties have a great light wood color with a luciteย blade heel and a clear vamp.. I have always had trouble with the plastic vamps; they start to tight, end up loose, and I am hanging my toes over the edge. That being said I will not ever part with these until I can no longer wear them. I got them from Ebay about ten years ago and they are made by Pleaser.

Another favorite pair of heels; these are by Jazzberry, a satin material giving a shimmery black, slingback open toe with a slight platform. The special thing about these is the ultra low cut vamp. A sexy look only a true heel fan can appreciate; well maybe not but I cannot say enough good things about that look. A very comfortable shoe; I got them at Burlington Coat Factory about ten years ago. I enjoy wearing them and I should wear them out some time. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A rare fit for me are these brown tie up sling back platforms with faux wood soles made by Zigi Soho. I go these on clearance from DSW about five years ago. Extremely comfortable and fun to wear. I like the rivet details on these, they kinda give them a tough look. I have found this designers shoes do not fit me well, but as mentioned these do fit me; very well and I think it has to do with the slingback and tie ups. ๐Ÿ˜‰

You may have noticed, but I have a lot of Steve Madden heels and it is because they are one of the designers that fit me well. These sparkly platform pumps are in black and just rock!

A find from Ebay about three years ago. These are made by Xhilaration, a canvas round toe upper with a thread through ribbon on the slingback and bow tie vamp embellishment. A basket weave espadrille wedge makes these perfect for the boat. The down side, they are a little snug and the slingback does not have any form of adjustment. An elastic strap would be good but these are very inexpensive shoes to have a cobbler add such a thing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

These are great Steve Madden faux wood clogs with real leather uppers. They have a tie up front and I am so happy I am able to have a pair of clogs that fit. I enjoy heel clogs! The Mrs. also has a pair of these; I have not worn them out yet but perhaps we can match one night for dinner. ๐Ÿ˜‰ These were another one of those great deals on clearance at DSW about six years ago. ๐Ÿ˜‰

One more pair of those great Steve Madden espadrille wedges; these are in a great green. The year I got these I think the only color I did not get is the blue and red ones. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I may have posted these in the past, I do know for sure but I have posted the black ones. These were given to me by the Mrs. about nine years ago. She got them from Newport News; they have a great looking faux wood heel, platform and a T-style sandal in electric blue. I think they go with scrubs just perfect. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I wanted to show off a great dinner outfit I wore with these Calvin Klein pumps with zipper detail in this amazing dark green. I almost returned them until I wore them in the house for about four hours and found them to be more comfortable than initially thought. I got them from DSW on clearance earlier this year. ๐Ÿ˜‰

These yellow T-style strappy espadrille wedge sandals by Pulse were purchased on Ebay about six years ago. I like the added buckle detail on the vamp which are slightly adjustable. I wore these with my athletic skirt on this day. I have worn both these fishing before. Love skirts. I have to point out this pedi is awesome as they glow in the black light. ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

These black patent strappy sandals have great stitch detail on each strap and a fun zipper closure on the instep I have to wear these with the zipper half down as they are a little snug when completely zipped. I obtained these Preview International heels from Nordstrom Rack about four years ago. I also wore some layered pants I got from Ebay this year. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Another pair of Preview International sandals I got at the same time are these patent black sandals with a side zipper. I have worn these on a trip we go on every year. Again I am not able to zip them all the way up as I have those big feet. I also wore some fun socks I have along with one of my jean skirts. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A pair of Guess cork wedges in blue denim embellished with chains on the zip up ankle straps. Very comfortable and cool looking. Got these at DSW on clearance about four years ago.

Dear Santa, All I want for Xmass…


Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is one or two hundred pairs of new heels. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, high heels were clicking, very pleasing to the spouse.

The stockings were hung after washing with care in hopes to be worn with heels placing me high in the air.

The children have rustled up their own homes and beds, so visions of whatever dance in their heads.

The Mrs. in her lingerie and me in my skirt, enjoying the night with booze and a flirt…

I did re-write the entire poem but I was not happy with the final results. As time is drawing near I felt I needed to get this post going before the end of the year.

This post may be another long one; I have obtained a few new pairs of heels again in the last month or so, but nothing I would be shamed for.

I am done traveling for now so I have the possibility to get a bunch of new photos taken of my collection. It might get out of hand. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well on with the fun. Enjoy and keep an eye out for the final words in this post. ๐Ÿ˜‰

These are a patent Maroon Mary Jane style pump by Sofft. A heel slightly lower than I like but I enjoy the color. I have worn these out to dinner and may have posted them in the past. This designer seems to be comfy and room; certainly wearable for a long period of time. A DSW purchase a couple years ago.

A black patent pump by Steve Madden from DSW several years ago. I got these on clearance as I do many of my shoes. A very comfortable heel with a hidden platform.

These sandals by Miss America Pageant are from DSW. They are a tan suede and the ankle/instep strap is a full elastic band. These have a wood stacked heel and platform. Very high feeling heel and certainly something one must be used to wearing to go for a long distance.

A unique style strappy open toe bootie wedge by Steve Madden purchased from DSWย on clearance a few years ago for about fourteen dollars. I think most people do not find them attractive or something. I am not a big fan of them but they were a real good deal. The bottom two straps are not elastic like the others and make the shoe a little tight. They have a back zip enclosure for easy on and off. I would wear them out if the comfort was a little better.

A purple open toe platform pump with a black cylinder shape heel by Michael Kors. These are a little tight on me but I have worn them for a few hours around the house. I might try them out someday as I think I can manage. They are fun to wear. I obtained these from eBay several months ago. The uppers are real leather and I might have some luck stretching them for a better fit. I took several fun pics with these but I maintained discipline so not to over share. ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

These are a new purchase from DSW in November. A patent black dorsey style open toe platform pump with elastic instep straps by Jessica Simpson.

These are another pair I purchased at the same time also on clearance. I wanted these since the beginning of the year. I could only find them in white and resorted to buying them (Posted earlier this year). When I found these in black I was not going to hesitate to get them. A patent black open toe slingback also by Jessica Simpson. The toe area is squared off adding to the unique style and giving a little more room in the toe-box. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A dark beige squared off open toe platform pump by Steve Madden. I obtained these a few years ago from DSW. I actually had to return the first pair as they had a lump in the toe box and caused great discomfort. It was fun explaing to the staff how I knew it was a problem. After that I have worn these out to drive places but not yet to dinner. Sometime soon I will as they are very nice. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The patent black baby-doll round toe, thick half round heel pumps are from Fredericks of Hollywood. Extremely comfortable heels. These have had some of the highest level of wear by me. I wore these to work almost everyday roughly ten years ago. I would walk to the doors very early in the morning, No one was around so I could get away with it. Sometimes I would wear them during the day as I had them with me and nobody but the Mrs. knew about it. These are a great pair of heels. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I purchased these online just over ten years ago and it is awesome I still have them! ๐Ÿ˜‰

These are a sexy dancer style heel, with clear soles, and a glitter upper. If I remember correctly they are seven inches tall. I can walk in them just fine and it is certainly fun seeing things from that height. I obtained these from eBay many years ago. Do not think these will ever get out of the house… well may be for a Halloween costume. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A red patent pointed toe pump by The Highest Heel are detailed with clear sides. Not a style I like much, the extreme pointed toe makes the shoe look extremely long. I obtained these from eBay several years ago and the pictures did not look as though the toes were as long as they are. I do like the color and they are a little tight from the shape of the toe box. I am also wearing my glitter open toe & heel socks from DSW by Jessica Simpson. A little added fun. ๐Ÿ˜‰

These are a gold sequin wrapped wedge with a gold crackled vamp by Colin Stuart purchased from eBay a few years ago. The vamp is a little tighter than most Colin Stuarts and make these a little tough to wear. Other wise they are a comfortable shoe. I planned on wearing them fishing but the tight vamp makes it undesirable to do so.

A silver sandal by Club Zone obtained from eBay. A very cheap find and the shoe is a fun style to wear. After taking the pictures here, the ankle straps on one of the shoes broke. I was not happy but I think I can convert them to a mule. ๐Ÿ˜‰ They are a great shoe as the vamp straps are also adjustable. A great way to enable comfort for all types of feet. ๐Ÿ˜‰

These fetish ankle cuff sandals are by Ellie. I found them on eBay many years ago and had to have them. I love this style shoe. The down side is the extremely small toe-box making for a very small strap and that is not good for a large male foot. I am sure females have this issue from time to time as well. I still love them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

These are a notch wedge sandal with jewel embellished buckles on the crisscross vamp in a patent white by Ellie. I got these from eBay many years ago.

These BCBG Paris sandals in a mustard yellow were obtained from eBay earlier this year. I have these in a couple other colors as well.

We will see. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A very dark purplish brown colored open toe platform pump by Paprika were obtained from Burlington Coat Factory several years ago. A very snug fitting shoe.

These platform sandals are also a dancer style heel, about seven inches tall, a clear strap vamp with an added jewel embellished strap and an hourglass shaped wide heel. The clear straps always get a little tight for me. I have tried the blow dryer method and have not been successful. Perhaps I need to do it more than a couple times to get the shoes to conform to my foot better. These were an eBay purchase several years ago. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Another Fredericks of Hollywood purchase several years ago, these metallic dorsey single strap vamp pumps are a bright electric pink. They have a ribbon bow on the vamp and a short heel. I like this style so much a I was willing to get what ever color was in my size. At the time I was not as concerned with the lower heels. These are comfortable but I do not think I will get out of the house in them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A pair of Rocketdog pumps in a black suede featuring a difficult to see pleated vamp. The heels are just a little shorter than I like but they are very comfortable with the almond toe. I wore these to a weekend getaway with the Mrs. Almost went to dinner in them as I had them on while driving, and the Mrs. was a little worried being we were in a strange place. Wore them around the resort very often though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I look forward to seeing you all again soon. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have been busy as you can see. I recently had a string of eBay wins. As I have been making good headway on photographing my collection, these additions slowed it slightly. Not that I am complaining. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Be warned, this is a huge post… I am not sure I have put this many pics on a post before. ๐Ÿ˜‰

As we prepare for winter in the midwest, many of the wonderful high heel wearing ladies turn to boots. I have stated my opinion many times as not being a fan of boots. As this is true, I have obtained a few to find a liking to boots. I cannot say I like them but I do appreciate them if they have a heel. But they still take away from what I like the most about heels. The visual effects on the feet. Yes, this is what makes me unusual. And to not go to far into my fascination about the ordeal we will just say I appreciate heels, how they look and what they do. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And we are on with the recent display of my heels. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

First are a pair of… Yup, Boots… As mentioned, a way to learn more appreciation for them. As I have learned that, I still do not like them. I like the heels but I just do not like all the coverage they have. These are a black knee high boot with an inner zipper and a fold over top byย Kelly & Katie. A DSW purchase a couple years ago. Very comfortable and maybe someday I will wear them out. ๐Ÿ˜‰

An eBay purchase roughly eight years ago. An ankle strap sandal in a very pale gold with snake skin texture. Designed byย Studio C. The embellishment on the vamp was added by the seller.

A brown T-Strap sandal byย Anne Michelle.ย An eBay purchase three years ago. I got these in a lot. They look less comfortable than they are, particularly around the toes.

I am sure I posted these but I incase I did not, an ebay purchase; a cork covered slingback open toe pump by Fioni. I am not a fan of Fioni as I feel they are a rather poor fitting shoe.

I obtained these cause I like the cork. Luckily they are not a poor fit. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A DSW purchase about two or three years ago, these Nina ankle cuff sandals are in a textured metallic cover. They have a zip up back which I feel adds that little extra sexiness. Certainly a new years eve type shoe, not that you could not make this a flashy addition to some jeans. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A small update/summary if you follow me regularly you are aware I am a some – time – blogger… Or a better description may be an inconsistent blogger. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Recently I made a self obligation to bring shoes with me on my business trips to photograph them. This will help the progress of showing you all the shoes I have. I also made a decision to restrict my purchases. It was going well but recentlyย ย I made some purchases on eBay. This results in some happiness and disappointment towards me for not keeping to my decision… Well, I will justify it away by telling myself I have been doing well and deserve a reward… Yup, there is always a reason to purchase some new high heels!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have noticed a few blogs the last month expressing dislikes for high heels and how they are damaging to ones feet. I have a few things to say; To start if one does not like high heels I have no problem. Not everyone will like everything. In my opinion, the level of sexy one obtains by wearing high heels will not be reached by those who chooses not to wear them and it is ok if you feel otherwise. ๐Ÿ˜‰
Along with that I will add if one promotes a dislike and offers information on negative effects, ensure the information is accurate and complete. One common issue I read about is high heels cause bunions and other damaging foot issues.
I disagree with this statement as it is written. It has some t
