Two months clothes budget
all spent on shoes: Mephistos
birthday for footwear

  • 1
I just bought maybe 9 pairs (most ever owned, by far) from Zappos.com, because I was sick of always wearing the same 2. I felt so decadently delicious, because I don't usually splurge on (non-electronic) items for myself.

Re: viva la shoes (sic)

What are the unique characteristics of each of your new 9 pair? My pairs' characteristics are: 1 is a classic 1940s style open-toe, platform heel, ankle strap shoe that looks elegant with skirts, 2 is a flat sandal in black patten leather with 2 rhinestone buckles they are in the ironic mode because they are also obviously Berkies trying to look Miami Beachie, and finally 3 is a another pair of Berkies in light blue shiney print leather that is fun for summer and jeans.

The Mephisto platforms broke the bank but they will look aesthetically edgy with those Klimpt high water jeans from Goodwill as well as my swishy skirts in the hot Texas weather and they also go with my new anias nin book of essays "in favor of the sensitive man and other essays" which may be a lot to ask of a shoe but they were very pricey.

Re: viva la shoes (sic)

today am wearing
1. gun metal suede hush puppie-esque (russell Simmons label, Phat farm)
2. yesterday wore vioxx black suede, recently written up in the Arts section of the NYT.
3. black Harley new-buck (sic) ankle boots, with ankle buckle. Makes me feel like wearing a white t-shirt and slicking my hair back a bit.
4. red and black adidas with such a narrow foot I feel like they are ballet slippers and tend to prance around in. The Bulls are watchable this year as well, so am wearing team colors (though this was actually unintentional)
5. golden hiking boots, came just in time for first major snow storm. Most comfortable.
6. green suede desert boots; I've always wanted a pair. Probably Josh's influence (from T.O. days)
7. another black boot by the same brand as my hiking boots.
8. classic berkie boot, nue-buck (sic) as well
9. One pair of dress boots
(un)Surprisingly, I have a photo, because I'm too lazy (ne' busy) to wax poetic at the moment.

Some shoes

Seems like a lot are suede, and most are ankle highs, this is probably because in years prior, I had one pair of black oxfords I wore most days. Went for a different look for sure. Also, good for 'urban' walking, dodging taxis and what not.

And I do have a favorite pair of mephisto sandals, and a new balance running shoe - these aren't really new though.

D teases me because I like to point out my new shoes, still, every time I wear one, probably because she's jealous. :)
