Some random shoe shopping

Neither of the cuter shoes were available in my size. The one shoe I did try on was a bit too funky for me but I thought I would share the photo of the zigg zagg heel anyway. I really did like the nude pump with the decorative heel.

These three photos were taken at Burlington Coat Factory. I usually don’t mind looking through disorganized discount items but the selection here were a bit more of a mess than most places. Some shoes didn’t seem to have a match, some shoes didn’t seem to have a price or correlating box. Mostly the shoes I wanted weren’t available in my size.

What I wore today – argyle in the snow

Today I’m wearing more for practicality between the freezing cold (20’s!) and a chiropractic appointment (wanted to feel the short massage without a bulky sweater.)

So I’m layered with:
– a plain black long sleeve tee (origin unknown)
– argyle sweater; Merona thifted
– jeans; walmart’s faded glory (no I don’t really like shopping there but love this pair of jeans)
– boots; leather uggs I’ve been wearing for around 4 years & purchased half price at TJ maxx (I just change the inserts for $20 each year and re-waterproof)
– car coat; Macy’s I think
– broach; grandmother’s

Gorillapod and a glif means now I can take more photos faster so I might be doing this more often.

Dries Van Noten shoes

I have wanted these shoes for a long time but can’t bring myself to fork over that much money for a pair of heels I will rarely wear (I love the look of heels but even the most comfy heels bother one of the toes on my left foot after more than 2 hours.)


Sorry to the ebay seller I nabbed the image from – the other place I’ve seen these shoes with good photos is Sea of Shoes’ blog but I think it’s got slightly different beading – I don’t remember the big stone on that right shoe (pictured on the left.)

I’ve been mentally trying to come up with a way to convert a pair of flats into something that might look similar but it’s going to take me awhile since I’ll have to find beads and do the hand beading myself (I don’t think I can get a cobbler to do that part of the project.) And no, I will not be copying them exactly.
