#heelproblems

Heels are my kryptonite. I can stroll through any shoe store and be drawn immediately to the most impractical, fabulous stiletto heels in the store – and want them badly.  The key is NOT to try those types of shoe temptations on…cause if I do…I’m in trouble.  Then there are the times when I don’t even need to try them on – I just know – I want them.  This is the case with a little obsession I have with a certain little shoe with the red ‘look at my fabulous little shoe self walking away’ sole.

I know…. Normally I wouldn’t really entertain the thought (who am I kidding – I entertain the thought all the time) of paying so much money for a pair of shoes but I have a little ‘fun’ money that can definitely be spent on something a little over the top so I thought ‘What the heck – I should go for it’.  Which leads me to my heel problem – I have to be fashion savvy and be a tiny bit practical in my heel decision making – since the cost is substantial for a pair of shoes.  Practical?  I am not…  So this one is difficult.

The Christian Louboutin black pump is my end game.  That’s practical right?  A black pump goes with anything right?  Yet when I look at all the Louboutin black pump options it makes me a little dizzy.  How can the black pump take on so many personalities?  Platform, pointy toe, round toe, patent, leather, high heel, low heel, mid heel, toe cleavage, no toe cleavage – arrgghh – it’s all too much and I can’t decide!  I want the pump to be timeless and appropriate for work, but I don’t want to sacrifice the ‘high’ heel as I love a good 3 inch heel.

Here are my options:

Platform Pump – I am on the fence with this shoe style.  I like the look of the platform and it is a comfortable style of shoe to wear but sometimes the platform takes your outfit to the less conservative side of the spectrum.  The platform feels a little more ‘party girl’ to me.  Timeless?  Not so sure.

Pointy Toe Pump – I love the pointy toe pump – this is one of my favorite styles.  The pointy toe adds some kick to any outfit and I love wearing them with my skinny jeans for a night out or with a pencil skirt to work.  Only negative to the pointy toe pump is…your little toes can sometimes pay the price.

Round Toe Pump – This feels like the most conservative and less appealing pump option to me.  For some reason the round toe doesn’t do it for me – the round toe puts out a boring kinda vibe to me.  Although – the round toe has stood the test of time.  Timeless?  I would have to say yes and timeless is what I said I wanted but….

Peep Toe Pump – another one of my favorite shoe styles but I live in Canada where unfortunately winter takes over for far too many months to fully enjoy my peep toes.

So tell me – what would your pump of choice be?

Darn heel problems…..

Oh My Blog

Oh My Blog….How I have missed you.
I’m not sure where the time has gone but I do know the time has not been spent on one of my favorite pass times.  My poor blog has been neglected and I miss sharing.
Spring has arrived, mini vacations have been enjoyed and general Modern Mom chores have been keeping me busy, but in the back of my mind I am always thinking – if I get to the last item on my spring clean-up to do list I can sit down and chatter on my blog.

Well today is the day – I’m Back – For a quick little fun light hearted blog.

Last month we made our annual trip to my favorite adult destination – Las Vegas. I love Vegas for the drinks, the nightlife, the people watching, and of course,  the shopping.  Vegas is a feast for your eyes and I LOVE it – I can’t get enough of it actually. Where else can I window shop at Chanel and get my stripper shoes(kidding) at the same time a few stores down the block OR where else can I stand in a Starbucks line with a gaggle of 20 somethings with breasts a poppin’ at 9:00 a.m planning their day of drinking and guy chasing by the pool.  Heck I think I was a little jealous of the 20 somethings and poor Mr. Modern – he didn’t know what to do with himself…or his eyes.
My favorite daytime pass time is to window shop all the beautiful couture shops that I can only dream to shop in. I love looking in the windows to see all the items that I have seen in a magazine spread. The goods always look so much better in person – it doesn’t make me necessarily want them but I am in awe of their ‘awesomeness’. My Vegas ladies and I took a little tour of the Miu Miu showroom and had a little giggle as the salesperson followed us (a little too closely) through the store as we touched everything we possibly could get our little paws on. I’m sure he hated us by the time we were done…

Anywhoo – I always have to take some pics of some of the items I was a little obsessed with.  There is always a pair of shoes that makes me drool.  The shoe of choice this trip was Christian Louboutin’s Lady Peep Sling Spikes (in pic collage below)  I stood in front of the window worshiping the shoe and my ‘fashion practical’ friend said “Where would you wear those?”  I said – “Who gives a f**k.  These shoes would own any closet they sit in.”
