ShoeLover “ShoesDay” Dilemma

I can’t believe it.
I can’t believe it.
I can NOT believe it.

According to Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW) Saturday October 25th was dswNational Shoe Lover’s Day and guess who did NOT buy any shoes? Yup, this girl right here. I’m still in shock. Well… sorta.

On Saturday, I ran a few errands with my family and we ended up at a store that’s literally two stores away from a DSW that I frequent. The devil on my shoulder said to me: “Go inside, and buy some shoes! You deserve it! Or, at least go inside and just look at some shoes.”

Now, let’s stop right there.

First of all, let it be known from this moment on that it’s hard for any shoe lover to just LOOK at a pair of shoes and not buy.

So, that’s when the angel on my shoulder said: “No shoes today? It’s OK, no worries.” How true that turned out to be!

I ended up receiving TWO $10.00 off coupons from DSW, one for now (meaning end of October-mid November) and one for later (meaning late November-Early December).
The lesson?
Good Shoes come to those who wait. #Winning

Golf and Heels???

Today’s “ShoesDay” topic is another Shoes as Art post.

This piece of artwork has actually been in my room for awhile, and was the first “shoe picture” I ever received.

The picture combines shoes (which of course you all know I love) but if you look closely,shoesandgolf you’ll see a man with a gold club in his hand preparing to tee off. The golfer in the picture serves a purpose too, because at the time I was really into the game of golf (yes, I had a huge crush on Tiger Woods, whereas now the crush has dwindled and I only get around to watching/playing golf occasionally).

I think it’s interesting though that a simple piece of artwork can hold meaning and memories. I’m glad I still have this piece in my Shoes as Art collection.

Shoes assist with Success

For “ShoesDay”, I’m discussing the question:

 What Makes a Successful Woman? 

Of course, many characteristics make a woman successful; confidence, skill, drive and passion to name a few. But, since part of this blog is dedicated to shoes, I’d have to argue that the right pair of shoes can contribute to the successful, confident feeling of a woman. Actually, this thought is brought out further in my latest shoe gift. Take a look …

My Betty Boop Shoes Figurine that was recently gifted to me by my aunt since she knows I love shoes.

My Betty Boop Shoes Figurine with the inscription: “Behind every successful woman is a fabulous pair of shoes.”

Yes, the right pair of heels, whether high, mid, or “kitten”heels,” (It really depends on the comfort and style of the woman) can make her walk with a little more “pep in her step.”

Do you have a shoe/shoes that remind you that you’re a success in your own right?! If so, take a picture a leave it below in the comments or email it to brunchandpumps@gmail.com and I may feature it in a future blog post! (with your permission, of course).

In the mean time, I’m gonna go pick out a pair of mine to share with you on a future post!

“ShoesDay”- Shoes as Art

Shoes can not only be worn, but they also serve as art/artwork. For today’s  Tuesday “ShoesDay” segment, I’d like to introduce to you the new artwork that I get to wake up to each day:

What shoe loves wouldn't love waking up to this?! :)

Yep that’s right, a Christian Louboutin shoe hangs on my wall. Many thanks to my mom for seeing this artwork and suggesting I buy it. Maybe now that I have this my mom will be more open to me getting the ACTUAL shoe. Hmmm…. 🙂

“ShoesDay” Memory

Happy “ShoesDay!”

I recently had someone ask me what was the best customer service experience I’ve ever had. They said it could be an experience from the grocery store, at a restaurant, anywhere! And what experience did I choose? An experience at the shoe store! Did you really think I was going to say anywhere else?

Last fall, I tried on a pair of Christian Louboutin’s. I’d had my eye on the Pigalle, (the classic pointed toe heel) or the Bianna (which is the round toe Pump).

The store I was at didn’t have either of those selections, but the sales rep showed me the Very Prive and I fell in love!! It’s a high heel, peep toe pump, and the red from the sole splashes through on the toe box. Very classy shoe. Of course I was in love with a totally different shoe about a week later when his new collection was revealed, but that’s another story for another time…

Question:

Most people that have or want Louboutin’s say that his shoes aren’t comfortable? What are your thoughts? Would you buy a shoe for cuteness or comfort?
