Bella's Shoe Shine and Anne's 52 Pick-Me-Up

These shoes, rescued from a shop's reject pile for $20 and worn in my previous post, are perfect for Bella's monthly Shoe Shine at The Citizen Rosebud. Thanks, Bella, for a chance to show off these glittery stompers. Note the magnificent double buckle closure. Contrary to what you might think, these shoes are not difficult to walk in because the pitch is relatively tame, but you'd want to stay away from them if you suffer from vertigo, especially paired with these socks, speaking of which...

Hugs to Anne at Spy Girl. Her geometrically-patterned socks inspired me to throw this pair on over top of my jeggings to share at 52 Pick-Me-Up - Sock Inspiration theme. She has a HUUUGE adventure going on in her life right now. Very exciting!! Read about it here if you haven't already. 

Until next time, 
Ease on down, ease on down the rooooad...

  6. Oh sweet lord I'm having fricken seizures over your shoes and socks!!!!! Dear god I need to lie down. Strange my choice of words since I don't even pray to anything. You do realise you're sitting at the Great Alter of Heavenly Stairs ready for people to pay their respects to your footwear don't you? xoxoxoxoxoxo

  15. Have tried commenting on your blog from my computer at work, but my Virus Scan keeps telling me you're dangerous, so had to wait til I could get a few minutes at home. Betcha didn't know you were such a threat, didya?

    Those are shoes that should be worn To Take Over The World, as everyone will be rendered powerless by their fuckingfabulousness.

  17. What a pair of show stoppers and with the socks even better! This pictures has a cool tone to it, like mixing black and white and color all in one. As Bella says, you are the brightest star. She has coined a gem of genius with that phrase!
