Time for some more shoe talk my dear shoe lovers!! Today is a special one! It’s all about Louboutins!! Please enjoy the video!
Please enjoy the following video as I show some of my favorite shoes from the Summer! Also, I add in a few surprise shoes!!
So, I’m mostly a high heel type of girl. Not outrageously high, but high enough to add some height to my current situation of being vertically challenged.
However, I’ve recently been showing a bit more love to my wedge heels. 1) I don’t own that many pairs of wedges (hint hint, time to go to DSW), and 2) I forget how comfortable they can be, especially for work. They add a little flair to an outfit, and can be worn with skirts, capris, or even cropped pants. I also think wedges can be a playful shoe just as much as the classic high heel.
Of course, wedges can get out of hand and be a bit too high or have an outrageously high platform. But, when they are worn modestly, they can be a perfect 10 in the world of shoes.
We are only about a month into Summer, and I’m glad I’ve rediscovered my wedge heels and I also plan to purchase some more.
Well, year 5 of the Black Celebratory is in the books!! It was a beautiful night on campus as we were able to honor many African American graduates.
As for the shoes I wore, many of my faithful readers have seen this pair before…
But not with this outfit…
I absolutely loooooove wearing these shoes with this dress, and it’s even more special because tonight, all long-time affiliate members were honored with our very own kente stoles with our personal initials!!!
Thanks again to all of you for reading, and I hope you enjoyed my shoe countdown this week as much as I did!
Please send me other shoe ideas, trends, ect. that you would like for me to cover on this blog!
For Year 3 of the Black Celebratory, I broke out with what I refer to as my “Ballerina Heels.”
These shoes, designed by Jessica Simpson were purchased at DSW and were once again, picked out by my sister!
Now I must admit, on first looking at the shoe I thought it was absolutely ugly. But, after trying it on, I was IN LOVE. The criss-cross straps resemble the front of a ballerina shoe. And believe it or not, the peep-toe and platform make this heel VERY comfortable.
Obviously this shoe gives me height and allows me to walk with confidence because my foot is nicely secured.
*Sidenote– I recently wore these shoes with a long gown to an anniversary party. After slipping these shoes on, I instantly remembered how great they feel on my feet! That moment made me wish I lived in a warm-climate area all year so as to be able to wear these shoes during the entire year.
Just as Stunner Shades are popular, so were my Stunner (blue) shoes that I wore to the 2nd annual Black Celebratory.
These shoes were picked on a whim by my little sister as few years ago at Sears on Black Friday. Blue is Lena’s favorite color, and I decided to buy the shoes because 1) I had zero pairs of blue shoes 2) I loved the Mary Jane peep-toe style. The ankle strap adds definition to the legs, and paired with the unique color you will definitely be a show stopper.
It also helps that blue is one of U of M’s dominant colors. So, it could be said that I wore school spirit on my feet. 🙂 GO BLUE!!
