apropos shoes

the other day i tried to photograph my new shoes together with my peonies since they're complimentary colors, with the idea of posting here. then, in the meantime, the elementary wrote about shoes and whether one really has a need for so many. i'm not a total shoe fiend, but i did actually buy two new pairs last week and have to admit it felt great. here is one pair:


i admit, it was a bit problematic for me that these pumps are jessica simpson, since otherwise i find her to be seriously vacuous and fear that i actually lose brain cells whenever i hear her being interviewed (which thankfully isn't often). however, she's got some seriously good people designing shoes in her name. and this probably won't be the last pair of jessica simpsons i acquire. but i can restrain for now...

Even I have to admit that these are very attractive shoes. You wear them well :)

polona and elementary--thank you. i like them quite a lot myself! and since i have to dress up in suits for work, they're perfect and add a fun touch to the otherwise boring suits.

Love the shoes, love the pedi.

I too did a post on shoes yesterday and unfortunately I can only drool over your shoes. With all of my foot problems, I can only wear flats, so it's hard to get these types of really pretty shoes.

Oh well, better wipe my chin, I drooling on my shoes. LOL

The shoes, the peonies, the toenail polish--bellisima! Anyway, 'tis far, far better to wear Jessica Simpson's shoes than Homer Simpson's.

I only won my battle against my shoe addiction when I gave up my job to go back to University.

Now if only I could stop buying second hand books...

What a beautiful image.

I don't know about payback - I rather suspect that beauty is attracted by beauty.

Ooops, too many open tabs. You attracted another's comment. Although I suspect the beauty to beauty still applies :)
