After professing my love for boots for the last few chilly months, I think I’m ready for sandals. My poor toes are looking to break free and I’m dying to purchase a plethora of new
totally needed sandals.
But red high heels are good anytime of the year, no?
One of my fondest red high heel memories is with my bestie in 2004 down in LA. She had come down to visit me for the weekend and we decided to do it up as two single girls on the town would do (insert eveil laugh here). We decided to get these crazy strong drinks called “Navy Grogs” on Manhattan Beach Blvd (in Manhattan Beach), which certainly left us feeling, err, tipsy. Then we decided we’d walk the 1+ mile to Harry O’s. What does this have to do with red heels? I was borrowing Andrea’s faboosh shoes (4″ mind you) that night. It’s a good thing we were tipsy because walking that far in those killer heels would have been the ruin of me. I’m quite certain there was blood in them at the end of the night (TMI?).
Anyway, I still have a fondness for red heels, but now I wear them in a more subdued manner, like with this work outfit:
Jeans: 7 for all Mankin. Jacket: NY&Co. Satin ruffled tank: Kendra.
Here’s a close up of the shoes:
I bought these Boutique 9 (sister of Nine West) at Marhsalls in 2007-ish I’m guessing for less than $50. I love the quilting and stitching as an extra flair. And these puppies are comfy. Perhaps I should put them to the real test and walk a mile to a bar in them
And besides all that, I love a punch of color to an otherwhat subdued outfit.
2 Fun Facts for you: 1) US Today reports that the average number of shoes a US woman has is 17; 2) Today is my 200th post
What “punch of color” do you like to add to your look?
And…nothing to do with shoes…what did you think of the the Bachelor’s pick?
