The power of pretty shoes.

I have a weakness for shiny, sparkly things. What else can instantly give you a lift (both mentally and physically) and make your legs look great at the same time? What’s not to love about that?

I adore shoes. I have an appreciation for how they are made, the thought that goes into well crafted shoes, and how they can be instant mood lifters. 

Like these beauties!




Manolo Blahniks. 

Give me a moment, I need to stare at them a little longer. 

I’m in Chicago for work this week and had a few minutes to spare yesterday so I went for a quick walk and was pulled towards Nordstroms, then pulled towards the shoe department, then these special shoes harkened me from across a crowded room.

I blame Carrie for my sinful coveting of Manolos.

As she put it so eloquently, “The fact is, sometimes it’s really hard to walk in a single women’s shoes. That’s why we need really specials ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun.


PS – In case you’re wondering, these aren’t part of my ensemble… I did admire them in the store (then I checked the price tag). I do think that I may go back today and just try them on, just to see if they really are as well crafted and balanced as everyone says they are (yep, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it).
