New shoes cure the blues

Remember last month, when I left Shoewawa and promised to mark the occasion in the most appropriate way I could think of: by buying shoes? And then I didn’t mention that again, and you probably thought I’d forgotten all about it?

AS IF.

Yes, if there’s one thing you can depend on me to do, it’s to follow through on any promises to buy shoes.

And if there’s another thing you can depend on me to do, it’s to take pictures of said shoes, with my dog:

Yes, I know they’re possibly the most kitsch things in the whole world ever. But sometimes you just need a bit of that in your life, no?

    I love kitsch, and I love them! Wear 'em with pride (and with Rubin)! :)

      Rubin makes the perfect shoe accessory, I think!

      That's what I thought – although, of course, as soon as they arrived, so did the rain: I've cursed the weather!

    I LOVE THEM!! Where did you buy them? Are they at all comfortable?

      They're from Office: http://www.office.co.uk/

      And yes, they seem comfortable to me, but my feet are used to heels, and I have to admit, comfort doesn't really tend to be the thing I think about when I'm buying shoes!

    They may be the most beautiful shoes I've ever seen! That's some good "leaving" action!

      I figured I had to do Shoewawa justice – I couldn't have paid proper tribute to it with a boring pair of shoes, it just wouldn't have been right!

    Only one pair? Are you feeling well?

    • Reply April 16, 2009

      Amber

      Perfectly well, thanks – I just haven't written about the other pair yet!

        Ha, I was looking for the other pair! ;)

    They're totally super cute! And I can totally relate to the weather issue – in Norway you'd get maybe 7 good, dry days to wear those shoes in one summer :)

      Oh, tell me about it: I love summer shoes, but the chances to actually wear them here are so limited – not fair!

    Wow.

    I'm a little bit worried that my first thought was "those would look great on a cake." The women in my life really mess with my head. ;+)

    They are definitely kitschy, but you could play that up in a retro-chic outfit. I would love to have those shoes for the 4th of July. Red, white, and blue!
