Monday Madness!

I hope you all had a stellar weekend.... mine was jam packed with an extra work day;
but, I also had time to squeeze in a long over due dinner with friends and a birthday celebration with family.

Today I have two pairs to add to the collection.
First #137, a pair of retro inspired blue suede pumps from Nordstrom's 'Brass Plum' line.
I wore these shoes last week with a funky vintage black & cream polka dot coat dress, cream fishnets,
a yellow skinny belt and an almost matching blue cardigan.

Awesome, right?!?!

Then today's shoes....pair #138
A scrumptious pair of Steve Madden camel colored suede strappy heels!
I know, not ideal for this weather, but today I am sitting in an office
warm & dry.... so the suede is safe!!!

I have these shoes paired with a pair of light wash, straight leg jeans,
a blue print top, and tons of turquoise and silver jewelry.

Hope you are staying dry & warm!

It's Back!

I know, I know... I never call or write anymore!
Things have been crazy (but when aren't they).
Well, here I am with a plethora of updates on the shoe front....
First I will start with some retirements...
The following shoes have all been removed from the collection.
They had either worn out from extreme wear or no longer fit.
 These adorable Nicole mules.... I kept walking out of them, not fun at the office :)

These Bearpaw boots have worn through on the bottom and did not have another winter in them!

These great New Balance running shoes meet their demise at the Camp Pendleton Mud Run.

The following shoes are now too big and not amount of insoles prevent me from walking out of them... and if you know me at all, you know that I am a total klutz and it is only a matter of time before this caused a serious injury!
These tall boots would no longer stay up and looked too slouchy to be fashionable!

And these shoes did not see enough action for me to keep them.  They have moved on to a new home and are receiving the wear they deserve.

So that is 10 pair of shoes retired... there will be more retirements posted in the futre;
however, on to the fun stuff....


I got these great suede pumps a few months ago.  I love to wear them with some of my vintage finds to add some extra flare!

I fell in love with these Steve Madden chevron shoes.  They are an awesome crocheted fabric with a ton of detail and since I am not affraid to mix patterns they get worn more than you might think. 

Here are some conservative (for me) faux snake skin wedges.  These add a great pop of color to an outfit and are a nice altnative to some of my crazy high pumps!
So at last count I was at 143 pairs.... minus 10 retirements puts me down to 133... + 3 new pairs and I am back up to 136.  Don't worry, I have more new shoes to post soon!

Have a great weekend!
