“Shoesday” Edition: Wear Shoes and Eat Cake Too!

IMG_2345This entire cake is edible, but because of the creativity and artistry, who would WANT to eat it???!!!

I found this photo about a year ago (again on Pinterest) and excuse me for saying that I instantly wanted to have a party so as to have an excuse to get this cake made!

Shoelovers, what do you think? Would you want to eat this cake?

PS- If you know anyone that makes cakes like this, send them my way!!

I Unexpectedly Saw Red…

It appears on the bottom of only a select pair of shoes against a variety of colors and materials and adds to the complete design of the product, making it a work of art on the foot of any Shoelover. It’s the coveted red sole.

Honestly, my dear shoe lovers, I’m still in shock myself. My disbelief is largely the reason why I’m able to write this post as opposed to jumping for joy and not being able to contain my excitement! But you know what, my happy-calmness is actually EXACTLY how I want to feel.

For me, my Louboutin heels are more than just the shoe, they are what the shoe represents.

For some people, purchasing their first pair of Louboutin’s is about status and all that “supposedly” comes with being a Louboutin owner. True, it is nice to say I own a pair of what MANY people believe to be ridiculously overpriced and uncomfortable designer shoes. But, considering that I wasn’t expecting to be able to purchase them so soon (from a financial standpoint) the shoe serves as a reminder to me that 1) anything is possible and 2) there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself periodically.

Yes, I own a pair of Louboutins.

Yes, I bought them for a RIDICULOUSLY  AMAZING  price.

And Yes, I’m still a shoe lover whether they are designer shoes or not.

 

 

“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?
