Shoesday Tuesday – Teach An Old Dog New Tricks

Image

I’ve never really had too much of a prejudice against a specific type of shoe – except maybe sneakers – but, I must say that I’ve always been a little luke warm about mules.

Recently, my best friend purchased a pair for her new burlesque venture and I thought to myself – cute, pin up inspired little shoe – am I missing out?

Fast forward a couple weeks to a day of online window shopping when I stumbled upon these beauties – I had to have them.

(With any luck they’ll be delivered to my office tomorrow.)

So let’s explore, open our minds, and step into a new pair of shoes.

Shoesday Tuesday (Wednesday) – A Belated Lesson in Thanksgiving Dressing

Image

After an hour of unsuccessfully trying to get my computer to turn on last night (only after completing the longest day of my professional work life) it’s time for a belated Wednesday version of Shoesday Tuesday.

 

Luckily, I’m thankful for a lot more than just makeshift technology.

 

In the spirit of Thanksgiving – let’s figure out what we should wear this turkey day. Most of the time – I base my outfit around the shoes I’d like to wear. (I’m sure this surprises no one.)

 

So let’s take a look at some basic on trend staples and accessorize them with clothes for a change.

Shoesday Tuesday – Step Back in Time

Image

Nothing says classy lady like a great vintage shoe. Or in the below cases – vintage inspired. I’m a big fan of old school style and I think the best way to pull it off is by mixing  something old with something new. It keeps it modern.
If you’re not sure where to start – go to the classics. And when we’re talking shoes there are a couple good ole’ standbys to choose from.
The T-Strap. Bring the 40’s back in a big way with any of these gems for under fifty bucks.

Get it: (upper left corner, going clockwise) T-Strap Metallic and Red Pump – $39 endless.com, Tan Patent T-Strap Wedge – $50 shopruche.com, Pointed Toe Metallic Kitten Heel – $35 chineselaundry.com, Seychelles Orange and Neutral Curvy T-Strap – $47 amazon.com, Sleek Metallic Two Tone T-Strap – $43 zappos.com, Chunky Blue Seychelles T-Strap – $18 amazon.com, Classy Black T-Strap Sandal – $28 forever21.com, Colorblock Peep Toe T-Strap Pump – $22.99 milanoo.com, Madden Girl Suede T-Strap – $45 dsw.com
Possibly the most classic, simple style of all things vintage inspired – the peep toe. Sling back, patterned, bowed, cut out – they’re all here for under $50.

Get it: (upper left corner heading clockwise) Leopard Bow Pump – $43 asos.com, Guess Neutral Sling Back – $50 endless.com, Gold Cut Out Pump with a Bow Front – $50 dsw.com, Colorblock Ankle Strap Peep Toe – $20 bakersshoes.com, Quintessential T-Strap Peep Toe – $50 dsw.com, Black and Printed Ankle Strap – $50 dsw.com, Polka Dot Sling Back – $35 wallisfashion.com, Simple Red Patent Pump – $50 dsw.com, White and Black Trimmed Button Up Pump – $40 kohls.com

And for today’s IRL shoe – you want a pin up look, what better place to find it than at a pin up shoot. These lovely vintage beauties are attached to the feet of model Martina Markota during a pin up photoshoot I modeled in this weekend. Pop of color with a colored tight – you’re ready for fall girl.

Til next time. Keepin’ it classy from the feet up.
