Part One of a series of posts dedicated to LindaMarieLouWho. Today, I discuss Shoes That Are Black. Full-size images can be seen here.
Ballet flats. My second pair of black ballet flats. Wore out the first pair, and on my way to wearing out this pair. Traipsed around Europe in these.
Faux-lizard kitten heels. Hey, these are kinda cute. I should wear them more often.
Contrast-stitch mules. Hmmm… think I’ll get rid of these.
Satin mules. Worn once, as part of my 18th C. Parisian Aristocracy costume (dammit, I was NOT Marie Antoinette!)
Satin ribbons. Worn to two Christmas parties and a Valentine’s Day party.
Cork wedges. These wound up being my comfy shoes at VLV10.
Peep-toe platform wedges. Megan discovered these in red, but was gracious enough to let me buy them in black. Likely to be my comfy shoes at VLV11.
Joe’s t-straps. Joe made me buy these. He used that tone of voice that meant that “no” wasn’t an option. I love a man who loves shoes!
Satin Mary Janes. Pretty basic. Not much to add.
Peep-toe Mary Janes. I love the asymmetrical strap!
Patent Mary Janes. These have a terrific heel. I couldn’t pass them up.
Peep-toe wedges. Was once stopped on the street by a (drunk?) woman who exclaimed that these shoes were cute, and made me look like Bettie Page. Cool!
Bettie pumps. Basic. Classic.
Stilettos. The shoes I was wearing (or rather, wasn’t wearing) poolside when I met My Pal Nick.
Sweetheart pumps. Those little polka-dots are actually tiny hearts. I’m looking for matching fabric so I can sew an outrageously cute outfit to go with these shoes.
Oxford booties. Oooh, so sorry that I didn’t brush off the suede for the photo. I find these sexy and dowdy all at the same time.
Platform wedge clogs. This is a pair that I looked at for a good, long time before finally buying. I have since become less angsty about feeding my habit.
