my favorite pair of heels

high heels

A few months ago I was accidentally shopping at Nordstrom with my husband {hey, it happens!} when we came across a women’s shoe sale.  It’s not pretty finding a shoe sale you weren’t planning to find.  Oops! There goes the kids’ college tuition! I found these Jessica Simpson nude heels for $45.  They were normally twice that, and I fell fast and hard for these babies.  I’ve fought the nude trend forever, thinking it’s just not a flattering shade for…

bad fashion week part 7

thick soles

It was all fun and games in the 90’s when we were being ironically sad and hopeless, wearing baggy flannel and worrying about our collegiate and suburban futures, but the gig is up.  Thick soled shoes are for people who legitimately need to wear them for health reasons {maybe you have one leg that’s shorter than the other?}. Here’s the situation.  Unlike platforms and other high heeled shoes that actually make your bum look smaller, your legs look longer, and…

hot sandals for summer 2011

I can’t even wait for Summer.  Like, I’m already having fantasies about taking my kids to the local pool and reading magazines in the burning hot sun while I drink a cold beverage. It doesn’t feel really close in Utah, but it’s just around the corner. I wanted to share some of the hottest sandals out there right now for the Summer 2011.  I’ll give you a big fat hint: espadrilles are everywhere. I loved them when they were hot…

cheap ballet flats for women

cute ballet flats

The other night I was at the mall with Precocious, something that happens so rarely it just felt really weird to type it.  I mean, we never ever go to the mall together unless we’re headed to a movie as a family.  It was actually a really nice, belated birthday present for my now 11-year-old tween: dinner and shopping without the boys. After we’d shopped around for a while we headed to a shoe store *just to browse*.  Those two…

fall boots for 2010.

You’ve noticed a lot of boots on women around town, yes?  I’m so excited this boot trend hasn’t gone anywhere because I’m a huge fan of the boot and it doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with the fact that Utah is snowy 9 months out of the year.  I don’t think. Anyway, I’m thrilled boots are here to stay.  Here’s a round-up of a few of my favorite styles of fall boots for 2010.  I put a few price…

what to wear to the pool.

As you’re preparing to go to the pool this summer, think about taking your swimwear to the next level.  I mean, obviously it’s critical to have a really great swimsuit, but I like to knock it out of the ballpark with cute shoes and accessories What are you wearing on your way to the pool or the beach?  What are you wearing when you’re not in the water?  These are critical questions.  Life or death critical.  Almost. Luckily really adorable…

ModCloth.

Do you know about ModCloth? It’s a sad truth that I didn’t until I met the adorable Erin Loechner from Design For Mankind at the Alt Summit in January. Apparently most of her wardrobe hails from ModCloth, and the girl knows how to dress. I was doing some innocent browsing just now, and look what I spotted right off the bat: I think I need these in my life. Yes?

sorel boots.

Torino $95 {Sorel} I bet you didn’t know Sorel boots were cute these days. My memories of Sorels included the manly version that Viktor wears when he’s out chopping wood or doing other freezing winter activities. Warm? Yes. Cute? Not so much. Times, they are a changin’. These new hot pink, adorable, warm and snuggly Sorels are for women. Precocious has huge feet though, so she scored these. Lucky girl. They aren’t even the cutest in the batch. I’m totally…
