all for me?!

What a day for mail! Not only did I receive a Valentine's package (Corazones Dulces & Sour Patch Kids + note) from my mom, my Magnolia shoes arrived--and so did a package of handmade glass from Vachu! I just have to post about these shoes--they are so lovely, and so easy to walk in, and so so so so pretty and THEY HAVE GOLD SOLES!

I know that is pushing tacky, but there you are.

And the glass is so pretty and I'm excited to use the beads. And, er, I already ate half the candy.

Now please excuse me while I go walk about my apartment in my 3.5" heels.

those shoes are magnificent!!! I wish i could do the pointy-heel and toe thing, but i have stubby little hobbit feet, so it is round toes, fat heels and mary janes for me. Sigh. But, WOW, your new shoes are sooooo preeeetty, makes me want to go shoe-shopping! :)

Gorgeous shoes. Sexy fabric and heels, yet preppy with the little tie thing. Great combo.

I still dream of wearing shoes like that - haven't really stopped since I was about three. But it will always be a fantasy as I have large feet & can't find shoes like that which fit, so have never learned to balance on high heels. I grew out of my Mum's high heels when I was about nine!

Yours are wonderful.

wow! Thanks, all, for the comments! Maybe the stereotype about women & shoes is true.... ;)

I rarely wear heels--too slow for walking, get progressively more uncomfortable as the day goes by--but I do love pretty things and just could pass these up. Now I want to wear them to teach in (ha! there's no way). They're surprisingly comfortable, though.

Your shoes are so cool. I still remember the most beautiful pair of shoes I ever owned. This was years ago...more years than you are old! I found them at a wonderful old shoe store in Minneapolis called Jaffe's, which is no longer in business. My shoes were a buttery soft pale blue kid. Around the opening there were colored flowers of the same soft leather (yellow, green, rose, pink, purple, white) stiched together in a kind of flower chain. Can you believe I didn't save them? Make sure you NEVER give your beautiful shoes away...
