Ah, Shoes (Gesundheit!)

Funny that a pair of really nice shoes make us feel good in our heads - at the extreme opposite end of our bodies. ~Levende Waters

I love this quote, because it is so true! I am a shoe girl. I love shoes. You never have a bad shoe day. Your shoes never get zits. You never try on a pair of shoes at the store and say "I can't buy these - they make me look fat!" Shoes are beautiful, even if you aren't. And no matter how crappy I look, I feel instantly hotter with a fab pair of shoes. I've had these fun ones for years and dusted them off for church last week.

I was feeling pretty good about my fun flirty shoes. Until I saw these on Oprah yesterday.

They are like little presents for your feet. If I owned these shoes*, I would never take them off. EVER! I would wear them to bed. I would wear them to the grocery store. They would become my new gym shoes. (An added bonus - nobody's watching my jello-butt on the treadmill; they're staring at my mind-blowing footwear.) They come from my boyfriend, Christian Louboutin. He makes the famous red-bottom shoes. They make me drool to the point I am in danger of drowning on my own spit. Here's a little eye candy (or should I say toe candy) for you to swoon over with me.

Seriously - I'M DROWNING! Where's the Hoff when you need him?!

Oh, there he is. YIKES!

*Disclaimer, for the sake of my husband before he dies of a heart attack - I am under no dillusion that I can or ever will spend $900 on a pair of shoes. But hey, a girl can dream. And if my boyfriend Christian sees this and wants to donate the fabulous green shoes, I promise I will send you the nicest homemade thank you card you've ever seen. That should about even things out.

I have to say i was all drooly over those shoes Sunday.

I love shoes too, my feet however hate cute shoes...sadly. They are like little calzones fat in all the wrong places.

My mom on the other hand has a definate shoe fetish. She owns 25 pairs of red shoes and just about nothing else. :) She is kooky that way.

I can't believe I missed that episode!! I kept seeing it being advertised. Shoot! I LOVE all of those shoes!

Yours are darling too. Tres chic and flirty!

Chanda! I get the BIGGEST kick out of you!! You totally rock! And I can't believe how GREAT all of those shoes are. They're all my favorite but if I was forced to choose, it's a tie between the black dotted shoes and the glitter ones. I'd probably go with the glitter because - who doesn't like to sparkle?! And, I have NOTHING to go with them and I'd be forced to go shopping.

Thanks for enlivening my day!!!

If only I were made of money!!! I wish I could have a huge closet of just shoes. Your so right, that it ALWAYS makes you feel better to have a fun new sassy pair of shoes.

K I am laughing so hard at the picture of 'Hoff'- I don't even think I noticed the shoes. My fav's are the black polka dots and the pink ones. To be honest I don't know if I would look good in those present ones? What in the crap would I wear them with, but I can see you in them!

Can we say YUMMY?! I love those shoes! Once I lose the pregnancy cankles, I have got to find me a knock-off pair!
Oh, and those Hoff pictures are priceless!

Laura said...

SOOOOOO true! A great pair of shoes changes everything!!

Laurie said...
