Laura Bear: Went shoe shopping...

January 13, 2011

Went shoe shopping...


and snapped up these cutie little espadrilles.
ah California and your espadrill allowing january's. how strange.
I was feeling very resort/spring break-ish. And I'm proud of myself for going with something so practical....
as, I have been known to buy Impractical Gorgeous shoes...











Also, I came to realize that red carpet can work in the right instance!
who knew!? I'm thinking Kelly Wearstler awesome boldness...
I was inspired and I think I need to be less neutral in color on the home decor front...


anyway back to shoes....

I tried on lovely Tods driving shoes,

but was surprised by what the sales men said...
"these aren't for city walking. They are more for mall walking and driving"
...um ok....
who needs "mall walking" shoes?
I guess they aren't kidding when they say these are Driving Shoes
and you can't have the nubs redone/ resoled....
sillysilly

So I went with something a bit pretty and practical
and I had dancing feet all day while wearing them.
Success!

have any of you bought new kicks lately? do tell!

The last pair of shoes I bought were genuine suede Ugg-like boots at Target. Best $20 I've spent all year!

Waaaaaaaant. I haven't bought new shoes lately as I live in my riding boots until, oh about March. Then I'll be living in Wellies for a few weeks, and only then will it be pretty shoe time. Maybe I should start shopping now though, even though I can't wear pretty shoes? Hmmmm, I think yes.
