the study of gray suede stiletto pumps

25 Aug

Gabrielle Rocha gray suede stiletto pumps, pointy toe, skinny heel, perfectly shaped. Yes, I love them. (Does this shock anyone? No? Good.

I found this cobalt blue dress at a thrift store for $5 dollars a few weeks ago. I can’t get enough of it. The color, the cut, the sleeves–seriously, take a look at the sleeves. They are fourteen different kinds of fabulous. Although, several times a day I find myself raising my arms over my head so the sleeves get away from my elbows, think Mickey Mouse in Fantasia.

In addition to thrifting the dress, I also thrifted the belt and the necklace. I’m a thrifting machine today!

Gray suede pointy toe pumps with 4-inch heel, by Gabriella Rocha.  I love the neutral shade of these heels, they are a bit on the brownish side of gray, as opposed to the blueish side. I actually have liked the warmer tone, although it means I can’t wear any of my cooler-gray clothes with them. (I know, the TRAGEDY!)

Michael Antonio Embellished Grey Pump ($29.66)
I love love LOVE the chain details on this shoe! It’s like a chic lady met a punk rocker and stole her shoes, or something.

Liliana Flash-38 Pointy-toe Pump, Grey ($31.05)
Classic pointy-toe shoe, a must for every cloest

Michael Antonio Gezana Wedge Pump, Grey ($65.00)
These are perhaps one of the more perfect wedge’s I’ve seen, the shape is fantastic, the color is divine, and the suede. Swoon!

Nine West Trilla Platform Pump, Grey ($89.00)
Mary Jane! Suede! Bows! Be still be shoe-loving heart!

Cole Haan Platform “Air Pump” with zipper detail ($152.96)
When I grow up I want a pair of Cole Haan’s. These ones, with the funky zipper detail, would be perfect.
(Dear Cole, please sponsor me, love Heidi.)

the study of burgundy, patent leather pumps

Burgundy patent-leather pointy-toe pumps with bow and fringe at the toe and 3-inch heel, by Anne Klein.  I love how classic these heels look, I have worn them with dark, skinny jeans and a white button-up, or a suit, or (like today) a printed dress and cardigan.  They go with everything.

I tried to find a similar pair of heels, but apparently burgundy patent leather + menswear-inspired pumps are harder to come by than I thought! I did find some lovely burgundy heels though. I have a huge crush on these layered leather platform pumps and wish I had the extra pennies to order them. Ditto on these burgundy patent-leather Mary Jane’s from Joan & David. This pair of pointy-toe pumps from Charles by Charles David are swoontastic, and they have some color combinations that made my jaw drop (I’m looking at you, camel and orange.)  Here is a really cute pair of Menswearish ballet-flat from Chinese Laundry. I also found two pair of fantastic heels made from several different textures in the same, deep burgundy hue; slingbacks from Anne Klein and these day-to-night stunners by Lovely People.

the study of vintage, chocolate suede pumps

18 Jan

Chocolate brown suede vintagey pumps with slight pointed-toe, 2.5-inch heel, and bow detail.  These are one of the very few pairs of shoes I own that came from a thrift store, I absolutely love them.  They are so feminine and sweet and perfectly shaped.

CC has been leaving me some lovely comments and while she doesn’t have a blog of her own I think she’s off to a great start in her inagural blog post!  These shoes are adorable–and on sale!–I’m sure you could find a way to incorporate them in your New Year’s Resolutions.  Right?


Hello Fellow Shoe Lovers,

CC here. Guest blogger reporting for duty. As you can see I won’t be guest blogging on any photography sites anytime soon. Taking pretty pictures is not my strong point which is why I resorted to this picture.

However, wearing pretty shoes is an area in which I excel. Who doesn’t love a pretty, little, pointy, gray, suede, kitten heel? That’s a lot of commas. They show the perfect amount of toe cleavage. Just enough to still be classy. These pretty things visited my dreams for a few weeks after seeing them in the store. One day, in celebration of nothing in particular, I decided to make them my own. To make it that much sweeter, my Target version is much cheaper than the Macy’s. Honestly, this love at first sight has lasted well beyond the honeymoon stage. So happy and so in love.

Buy them here, now on sale for $17.99! Mossimo Veralis Ruffley Flat

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 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 black patent leather pumps

16 Nov

No-brand black patent leather pointy-toe 3-inch pumps.  Nothing quite like wearing fishnets on a Tuesday to spice things up a bit (with a below-the-knee skirt, I’m not that spicy).  These heels were a gift from an aunt who worn them once or twice and then experienced the grave misfortune of having her feet grow a half-size.  Ohmygoodness, I can’t even imagine, I would cry if that happened to me.  Knock on wood.   If you’re in the market for a classic black patent pump, and I highly suggest that if you do not already own a pair that you look into it post-haste, here are a few you may enjoy.  These 3-inch black patent pumps from Steve Madden are very similar to the ones I’m wearing.  If you’re looking for a little higher heel these 4-inch heels from BCBGirls are drool-worthy.  And lastly, if you can’t say ”No” to an ankle strap (like me) you’ll love these black patent Mary-Jane’s.  (Seriously, I may have to buy those last ones.  I just can’t get over how de-lovely they are!)

the study of chocolate brown, pointy toe stilettos

11 Nov

Chocolate brown pointy toe 3-inch stilettos with ruching and bow at the toe.  I can’t remember where I purchased these, and the brand name has disappeared from the inside.  I love the sassy ruching on the toe and I love the classic shape.  In snooping around for something similar, I found this suede pair that I love, and this faux croc pair from Bandolino (I’m a sucker for anything snake skin, reptile print, or croc stamped).

Note from the Editor:  Skipping about the internet looking at delicious chocolatey brown heels has given me a serious hankering for about 12 new pairs of heels, all in various shades of brown, all lovely.   Do I need more shoes?  Not particularly.  Do I want them?  Absolutely.  Will I buy them?  ….I will not buy shoes today. I will not buy shoes today.  I will not buy shoes today (repeat 100 times).  I am announcing this here on the hope that it will keep me from running up credit card today.  Cross your fingers for me!
