love you, shoe

love you, shoe

My heart skipped a beat when I found these on sale.  I didn't even care that they're over 5 inches (new record for me).  They're like architectural wonders.

love you, shoe

Haircut Day!

love you, shoe

love you, shoe

love you, shoe

Speaking of way too tall shoes, I realized it might be helpful to share one of my staples for high heel wearing over long periods of time.  I swear by these Insolia inserts, which shift your weight off the balls of your feet, rather than just padding them.

vintage slip top
vintage Brooks Brothers sweater
H&M jeans
Finsk shoes

Hermes bangle

those shoes are phenomenal, phenomenal, phenomenal.

And I'm glad you managed to stand up for the last few pictures (hahah....just kidding....your squatted poses are cute....but for a minute, I was really wondering....are 5 inches too high to stand)

Julia said...

I think I'd hate you if I actually knew you. I've been wanting those--those exact ones!-- for like, a year. Goddamn, woman! But you rock them. And your hair is divine. Seriously though, if you ever get tired of those Finsk beauties, mail them my way....even if they don't fit me, I'll use them as sculpture....Anyway, beautiful as always.

Love, Julia

Amy said...

myedit said...

So... in my last post, someone commented that I looked classy and then proceeded to compare my classiness (?) to yours... which made me all blushy and flattered. A great compliment.
Unfortunately, my shoe collection has nothing on yours. These? perfect!
