Shoesday Tuesday – Spring Forward with Love


It’s officially spring. And although it doesn’t feel like it yet – I am optimistic. But I’m not only referring to the weather.

Today – as the Supreme Court hashed out a conversation about Marriage Equality – I was uplifted and inspired by the amount of love and positivity I came upon throughout the day via the interwebs. I knew I chose my friends for a reason.

In the spirit of social equality, happiness, Springtime, and love – here’s some shoe eye candy from every color in the rainbow.

“I might not be the same but that’s not important. No freedom til we’re equal; damn right I support it.” Same Love. – Macklemore




Shoesday Tuesday – Pantone Powers That Be


In fashion land – trends are predetermined by the chosen ones and we all jump on the boat. Some designers even pay forecasting companies to give them their inspirational mood boards.

Included in those forecasts is always: Color. And the color bible is the almighty Pantone book. Each year Pantone chooses a color of the year – last year’s being Tangerine Tango. (That insane name has haunted me for the past 365 days.)

With 2013 comes a new Pantone of the year and the lucky winner is Emerald. However, we can’t all go around only wearing green – so we’ve been blessed with other options that are sure to be in all the stores very soon.

Let’s take a look at the 2013’s approved colors – and the shoe options that follow suit.

Shoesday Tuesday – Halloween Eye Candy


With Hurricane Post Tropical Storm Sandy leaving me stranded at my Brooklyn apartment – I am so very thankful for my electricity that never left me and cable/internet that only flickered for a hot minute. And also for my dog – for keeping me company.

I’m also thankful that tomorrow is Halloween – one of my all time favorite days in this glorious city. And while Sandy has taken down a majority of NYC (including the entire subway system – will I go to work tomorrow? no one knows) she will not keep me from staying in the Halloween spirit. Since staring at various screens of technology is my only available form of entertainment – join me and look at some Halloween themed shoe candy.
