Fashion victim FOR REELZ!!!

So I just got word that my friend's sister is in the hospital with a broken leg. How did she break her leg you ask? Walking in 7 inch heels!! She was walking from work in her shoes, fell and broke her leg in 2 places..

Now, I know my last post had a pair of 5 inch heels, which to most people is high. However, I'm used to 4.5 inches so 5" seems like nothing. I've never tried on a pair of 7 inches heels so I'm not sure how the balance would be. I would guess you can't balance properly since she fell. Can you image breaking your leg because of a pair of shoes?!!
I've read to walk comfortably and still be sexy, you need to always look up and straight ahead. This balances your eyes and keeps your entire body aligned. HMMMMMM. Also, we live in New York,,with all the cracks and bumps in the sidewalk, I could see how she fell. It wasn't the shoes fault, it's the city poor upkeep of our streets. Thats' what I'm going with!! LOL!

Have you been a victim of fashion in the literal sense??

They had me at HELLO

Meet my newest addition! HELLO by Jessica Simpson.. Yes they called out to me when I was in Century 21 the other day. I swear I only went to look. Then all of the sudden, I hear this wimper, a cry if you will... The pathetic sound was coming from the shoe box. So what else could I do to stop the shoes misery so I bought them. $49 a steal right??!! They are so grand, the heel is nice and sleek. They have a zipper up the front, which in my opinion makes the shoe more sturdy.
So when I got home I wondered what I could wear them with.. and on Forever 21 I found the perfect dress and belt

Brown Ruffle dress Twelve By Twelve $30

Brown Metal Belt Forever 21 $10.80. (belt needs to be a little dark, but you get the point..)
I think this is a prefect safari-ish outfit. What do you think?

Beautiful LAMB!!

I simply adore shoes..so when I scored these babies for FREE I hit the roof!! YES FREE!! Needless to say getting these shoes were the highlight of my day.

They are called KRAEMER, and they are just beautiful!! They have a 5 inch heel with a leather tie strap around the ankle.

I put them on as soon as I got home. COMFY!! I wore them to load my dishwasher, and to take out the trash. How's that for stylish housekeeping LOL!! I did get funny looks from my son, he's a boy so he doesn't understand. I have yet to wear them out but when I do WATCH OUT!! I'm going to light up the sidewalk!
What do you think? Do you likey?? Do you get verklempt when it comes to a nice pair of shoes???

Walking shoe AND the office shoe...all in one

If you're like me, you've gotten slightly (key word: slightly) older and can't run thru the streets in 4-5 inches stilettos. OHHH the good ole days of being able to high tail it across the street or skip across cobble stone, or to run to catch a bus or train, all in the while strutting in your best stilettos. Folks alway commenting on your shoe choice to walk around "Who walks around on a Saturday in heels" my sister use to say. "I'm comfortable" I would shout in rebuttal..
Now friends, age has caught up to me and...well... I just can't do it any more.. GASP!! I can't believe I just admitted that.

So I was looking for some comfy, girlie flats and came about the shoes you see at your left. They are called Sheila' Driving Heels. Now I live in the city of NY and very rarely do we drive ( and I use the term WE loosely because I don't drive) So I was thinking, could these be the answer to the wear-flats-to-work-and-change-into-heels-once-there problem? The heel FOLDS DOWN, turning the shoe into a flat..HOW GENIUS!!!! Like, I get the idea for driving. I would assume its difficult to drive in heels? But for the city slicker fashionista, this is the answer to our prayer (mine at least) No more carrying a second pair of shoes, or having a pile of shoes under your desk that you could open a shoe store! I'm sold...
What do you think? Genius or Crazy??!!

I was perusing thru the internet looking for...shoes of course.. When I came across these!!! All I could say was WTF!!! (insert fudge for the F please) They are called the High Chair Shoes..Furniture for your Feet..
Who, What, When and the most important..WHY and HOW. Why would someone create these monstrosities? I know..to each is own, but come on!! HOW does a person walk in these? As you can clearly tell from the picture the lady is sitting down..(as you can also tell from the picture, if you look close she has a very long big toe nail...GROSS and the pinky toe is curled under)
I LOVE shoes and for the heck of it would try them on but I don't see how someone could walk in them..the 3 prong heels are round, if it were a flat surface like what's on an actual heel, then maybe..It boggles the mind....

What do YOU think.....

Hope everyone has a great Easter Day today! I think the gems you see to your left would complement any Easter outfit. They are just precious aren't they!! Because they are Christian Louboutin I'm sure they cost in the upwards of a gazillon dollars. For now we will just admire because it's always free to look (and try on,place back in box and run out of the store when the sales person turns her back...yeah it's happen)

Enjoy your Easter day folks and don't forget what this day is really all about..The resurrection of Christ.
