substitute teacher: the study of red plaid rainboots

24 Dec

Hello, e. here from pinksuedeshoe.  A few months ago I found these perfect red plaid rainboots on clearance at a Texas TJ Maxx for all of $12.  It was a happy happy day.

[ Available at zappos, but for much more than $12, unfortunately. ]

I wasn’t hoping to use them until the Spring.  I have a great red raincoat to wear them with.  But, mother nature had something different in mind.  It’s been pouring buckets of rain in my neck of the woods for days.  Days and days.  I’m hoping for a cold snap tonight so that maybe we’ll have a white Christmas.  Maybe.  I’m going to a Christmas Eve program held in a barn near my mom’s house tonight.  And I think that these boots will be a a festive way to help keep the mud and barn-ness off my feet.  Merry Christmas, if you are celebrating.  If not, Happy Friday!

the study of red pointy-toe pumps

Red leather pointy-toe, 3-inch heels by Carissa.  There is nothing that will brighten your day quite like a pair of red shoes.  Happy Friday everyone!

the study of classy sneakers

10 Dec

Tsubo sneakers with red elastic/velcro closures.  These are a Nordstrom Rack find and I have absolutely loved how classy chic they are for a sneaker.  Hooray for Casual Friday!

the study of red patent leather, pointy-toe stiletto with ankle strap

9 Dec

Red patent leather, pointy-toe stiletto with ankle strap and silver studs, by Guess.  Rawr!  I found these lovelies at Nordstrom on one of their half-yearly sales for a steal.  They have been used for several costumes (Rainbow Brite being the most  awesome) but I also wear them on normal days to spice things up a bit.

My sister, pinksuedeshoe, has spent a couple of Saturday mornings taking pictures of me and my shoes–I can’t tell you how much easier this process is than the self timer or odd body-contortions that are required when I take pictures of my own feet.  My 2-year old niece, Creamie, loves these little photo sessions almost as much as I do, and that little munchkin knows how to work it for the camera.  *Heartmelt.

the study of red patent leather clogs

24 Nov

First things first: Did you know Amazon is having a sale on all their shoes today?  Specifically they are offering 30% Off Shoes on any purchase!  I highly recommend you clickity-click right on over there and get yourself something cute, or something warm, or whatever strikes your fancy. 

Oxblood red patent leather Dansko clog.  This is a departure from my regular 4-inch heel, but the requisite 20 minutes of scraping ice off my car after yesterday’s storm made stilettos too impractical for even me.  Besides, I’m treating this Thanksgiving Eve like a casual Friday (as are the 6 other people in my office who were suckered into working today).

Now, I’ve heard many people rant about how ugly and boring and dumb clogs are, I will respectfully disagree.  These particular clogs are closed around the heel, so now snow can get in (thank heavens!), and the Dansko sole and foot-bed mean they are RIDICULOUSLY comfortable.  Sure, they come in matte black or brown for anyone looking for sensible shoes–but they also come in a zebra print, a veganversion, and even purple patent leather! (I am crushing on the purple ones, they very well may be my 30% Off Shoes purchase for the day!)

the study of red leather, suede and croc peep-toe pumps

15 Nov

 Red leather, suede, and faux stamped croc peep-toe 4-inch pumps from Amanda Smith.  I particularly love the cut-outs on the toe.  I actually have these pumps in 3 different colors; the red ones here, black, and a lovely pair in brown tweed (which will be worn at some point, I promise).  These heels are incredibly comfortable and go with everything. 

Besides, there is something to be said for combating rainy Monday’s with red shoes.  Right?  (Right.)  If you aren’t wearing red shoes today here are a few more pairs to lift your spirits.  I love these red patent peep toe pumps from Guess, and the teeny little cut-outs on these red suede heels from Franco Sarto are absolutely divine, and who wouldn’t immediately fall in-love with these Bandolino peep-toe heels in red stamped croc?  Communists, that’s who.  Everyone else should be swooning by now.

the study of red vans with velcro

12 Nov

Vans “Prison Issue” Velcro-closure sneakers in cherry red.  It took me approximately 3 seconds to determine that the Velcro was more awesome than kindergarten, which led to an almost immediate purchased of these shoes.  Three years later I have them in two different colors (red and a gray plaid) and am still completely in-love with them.  In looking around online I found them in black and white, but nothing else.  If you’re looking for a red sneaker (and frankly, if you don’t have a pair you should definitely be in the market for one, or two), these red Chuck Taylor’s should do the trick.

the study of red leather wedges

1 Oct

Steve Madden red leather T-strap 5-inch wedge.  These are among my favorite pair of shoes–there’s just something about red shoes that makes your whole day go better.  The platform on these lovelies makes them super easy to walk in and the height makes my legs miles long, either with jeans for the weekend or a skirt for work.
