Bored with all of my shoes, trying to remedy situation

Some of my friends and fellow bloggers (Laura and Tiffany) have actual good taste and confidence in that taste, and are therefore able to post sartorial items on their blog and proclaim their awesomeness. I lack said taste and confidence, and therefore will continue to call upon my [small] audience for suggestions (and since I know Tiff and LG are reading, this is good for me.)

Currently in my shopping bag - all good calls?

I feel like my current selection is woefully inadequate for fall/winter formal looks, and I think these could supplement what I have nicely. I'm also thinking about doing away with some of what I have entirely, so I'm not concerned about having - for instance - too many black shoes, since I kind of hate most of the black ones I already have.


  1. 1. Don't like 'em. I may be biased because I'm not a fan of wedges in general, but I don't think a traditional heel would change my opinion much.
    2. I don't think I would wear them to a bar or anything, but I think they are great for work/professional looks. Depending on where you are planning to wear them, I think they are a go.
    3. LOVE the nude shoes! I've been looking for a similar pair! Not that you need the extra height, but nude shoes make shorties like me look taller.
    4. Gah! I wish they had one more strap or something because the middle section looks a little incomplete. Aside from me being picky about that little part, I'm a fan.

  2. 1. Agree w Tiff, not because I don't like wedges, but bc I prefer them to go straight down from the back of the heel and not swoop in like that.

    2. Again agree w Tiff. Classy hardware. If the heel were skinnier (yummmmm stilettos), I would say they could drunkenly run around town.

    3. LOVVVVVVVVE the nudes. I want them. Where can I find them?

    4. I think these are very YOU. But I think you could go a bit more bold... I personally prefer a taller heel (but I understand the choice being that we are both tall ladies).

    If you are going for black and studded, I think you are one of the few people on earth who can pull off these: http://www.stevemadden.com/Item.aspx?id=49108&ListSearch=STud

    Sorry... that was ridiculously a lot, so I'm going to stop now and write a blog about it instead. :)

  3. ^^ Loooove the "total drool" shoes!!!
