The picture of what is possibly the most adorable girl ever is below. I present Christie Barnard wearing a checkered pink and white satiny dress with matching headband. This is the dress I dreamed of while I suffered in jumpers....except for that pink paisley one...that one rocked. Thanks Mom!

Yes that is all I have, one picture is it. So below I present some thoughts on shoes. Enjoy.

I’ve been thinking about shoes lately. I know that comes as a shock (not) to most of you. The weather is almost starting to be nice on a fairly consistent basis and this means my shoe wardrobe has to be reassessed. It also means I have to buff and polish my feet on a more regular basis but that’s a different topic. I’m sad I’ll have to stop wearing my boots because they make me feel powerful when I stride around in them. Sometimes I think I scare the good people at Fred Meyers when I walk around like I’m going cut some fool while I buy my black nailpolish. I also have to put away the velvet shoes until fall, I’ll especially miss the teal velvet pumps. But this is when I remember that wedges and sandals exist and everything is gravy again.

This brown pair is by Joe's Jeans, you can find it at Nordstroms. I wish I would find it on my feet.

Elizabeth & James, also at Nordstroms: You get red, you get crochet, and it has the "cuff" which is HUGE this spring/summer.

N.Y.L.A. Halie Wedge Sandal, DSW Shoes. Classic wedge shape, some edge with the studs.

And finally I give you Fendi. The sandal is Tulle and Lucite, and is costs over $1000.00. It's so pretty................sorry I was drooling.

Love, ABBS


  1. What kind of shoes should I wear to the circus?

  2. I'm not sure how I feel about the cuffs on the E&J's and their kind. For those of us with feet as long as the day, those kind of things make us look like a squeezed toothpaste tube. Or something.

  3. Katie,

    For long feet, you just wear really high heels, which make your feet look shorter. Just think of your foot becoming the hypotenuse of a triangle, which means that the horizontal distance on the right angle side (where your foot would be if you were standing flat-footed) is shorter than if you were wearing no shoes and that same hypotenuse length were the length of the horizontal right angle line that is now your foot.

    Actually, that probably won't help anyone other than me to think of it that way. However, I have small feet and it does explain why when I wear high heels (which I do as often as possible), my feet more or less disappear.

  4. I would like to see a demo on the bottom ones. I'm just not quite envisioning how the toes would go...
