More than anything, I think this has shown the nice variety of shoes that are in my collection, and that I’m an all-around shoe lover. High-end, or low-end, as long as the shoe fits my foots, and adds comfort and style, then it’s good with me!

Since the event is in the evening (and some of my blog readers are attending the event tonight) I don’t want to spoil the surprise. Therefore, Check back tomorrow for a showing of the outfit I wore today with the shoes from Year Five!!

Suede Sole Sistas

My Dear Brunch and Pumps readers, PLEASE FORGIVE ME!! My time away from this blog was unintentional and waaaay longer than I expected.

I’m returning today with a newfound theory: Suede isn’t just for the Fall.

Pictured here you see two of my favorite pair of suede shoes.

The pair on the left is a gray suede spiked ankle strap pump by GUESS with a metallic heel. The pair on the right is a deep fuchsia/purple tie-up bootie with a collar back and gold detail.

 

What I love about both pairs is that they can be worn to match an outfit, or as a statement piece or add color-blocking detail.

I’m sure I’ve written about one or both pair before, but I felt they were worth mentioning again as I’ve been wearing them a lot this winter despite the snow here. Sure, it takes a little extra planning, but carry a shoe bag with you to your destination and pop on your suede soles to add some spice to your outfit!

“ShoesDay” Edition: The RockStud

I’m sure most of you are thinking that when it comes to upscale shoe designers I’m partial to Christian Louboutin. Well, you are correct. However, today I’d like to discuss a popular shoe designed by the famous Valentino. The shoes name? RockStud.

I’ve seen many celebrities wearing this shoe, and there are numerous imitations of this shoe at various retail stores. The shoe comes in various colors, but the design is constant- pointed toe, studs across the top of the shoe to enclose your foot, and studs on the ankle straps to secure your foot in the shoe.

Here’s the kicker: I don’t like the shoe.

No matter how popular it is, no matter how many times I’ve seen people wear them, I’m just not a fan.

Now in the picture below the shoe looks fairly decent on the foot. I guess it’s just that on some pictures I’ve seen, the person’s foot looks like it’s being swallowed by the shoe and the ankle strap looks too big.

I think the shoe must 1) Fit snuggly, but comfortably and 2) Be styled correctly.

What do you all think? Am I being too critical? Should I embrace the Valentino Rockstud?

ShoesDay Edition: Barely There

Summer is the season where most people tend to get away with wearing less on purpose. While I’m not advocating this style, I couldn’t help noticing that this trend has presented itself in the world of shoes by means of the Barely There Sandals. Unknown-1

These sandals give your foot minimum coverage, and minimum support. However, paired with the right jeans, and or skirt, (and a nice pedicure, of course) these shoes provide a sexy look for the summer since the entire arch of the foot is shown.

I only own one pair (got them from Target). They are a nude pair with a black ankle strap which provides a nice color contrast to the shoe. Ladies, be prepared to walk on the ball of your foot in these sandals. Yes, this is just one more thing that we do (or wear) for the sake of beauty.
