Handpainted Taika Flats

Monday, July 23rd, 2012


Mark Rothko has been one of my absolute favorite artists since I can remember. I just love his paintings. When I saw these fabulous Handpainted Taika Flats in the Anthropologie catalog – they immediately reminded me of Rothko’s paintings.

Mark Rothko, Yellow, Blue, and Orange

Just in case you are not familiar with Rothko’s work – this is Yellow, Blue & Orange (image credit Chicago Art Review).


LeifNotes’ classic suede toecap flats are like little works of art. In fact no two exactly alike because the pretty saturated pigments are applied by hand. These art inspired flats come in 5 different color combinations and it is a little tricky to pick a favorite.


This is the cover of Mark Rothko by Jeffrey Weiss. It looks so much like the flats in the photo above.  If you want a Rothko of your own, check out the Mark Rothko gallery on

Juicy Couture Feist Flat

Juicy Couture Women's Feist Flat

I just can’t get enough pairs of sandals this summer. I was poking around online tonight and found these very fun Juicy Couture Feist Flats that just made me giggle. Everyone wants to be queen for the day. I love the gold crowns and the circle of sparkle. I may not have the guts to actually wear a tiara on my head but I think I could wear tiaras on my feet (once I get a pedicure of course…).

Tory Burch Sandals

Thursday, July 5th, 2012


I have a little weakness for sandals with printed, colorful footbeds. For a long time I didn’t really see the point, but after I purchased my first pair and wore them a few times – I got it. You actually see the fabulous prints and colors around your feet. I have a few pairs of Tory Burch flip flops and Havaianas with colorful footbeds and I can’t tell you how many times I have received compliments on them. Maybe it is just a little unexpected treat that makes us smile.


And tonight I was just poking around on and I saw that the Printed Emmy Sandals are on sale. You can save over $60 on every pair. Yeah! There are 7 prints/ color combinations to choose from. These sandals are perfect when you want something super simple and chic and a step up from your basic flip flop.

And the best thing about these sandals? They look so great on the floor, you don’t have to feel guilty about not putting them away in your closet…

Striped Espadrille Wedges

Monday, June 25th, 2012


I own more pairs of cap toe J. Crew ballet flats than I want to admit. I don’t know what it is but I just love them. They are the staple shoe for my everyday mommy uniform. So needless to say when I saw these fabulous striped cap toe espadrilles in a recent J. Crew catalog, I knew I had to place an order. They are fantastic! The canvas stripes are great for summer and I was so thrilled when I read the cap toe is actually black silk satin. That little detail makes them super chic in my book. And I have great news to share – these Seville wedge espadrilles are on sale too. Happy savings for all of us!

Sole Society

Monday, June 18th, 2012


I had seen a number of advertisements for Sole Society and was always a little curious to give it a try for myself. As much as I love fabulous designer shoes there are many times when I just want super cute, colorful, funky shoes and I don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars for them. So I did a little shopping recently on Sole Society and I must admit I love it!

Pictured above are my sky high Brianna’s. I have always loved the contrast of pink and orange together and these shoes have the perfect tones of each. They are so awesome that I actually keep them right on my desk near my monitor so I can look at them every day. Sounds corny, but it is true.


I also love these navy shoes I bought as well. They are incredibly comfortable and look great with jeans. Overall I have been very impressed with the quality of the shoes at Sole Society, especially considering how inexpensive they are. Most of the shoes are only $49! Everyday they release a new shoe so there is always something new. From flats to wedges to sky high stilettos, boots and more – you will find a great selection of trendy, fun and fabulous shoes.

And I just wanted to let you know that I did need to return one pair and the customer service was excellent. I received store credit right away and was able to get a new pair of shoes ordered quickly. It was all very easy – no questions asked. And in case you were wondering, the only reason I returned them was that I realized I had another pair of shoes that was almost identical to the ones I ordered. No wonder I liked them so much!

So go ahead and sign up for Sole Society today and give it a try. I think you’ll be hooked – just like me….

Lego Crocs

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012


I just bought my son these adorable Lego Crocs and he absolutely loves them. He is 5 years old and like many other 5 year old boys he loves loves loves his Legos (yes, every table in my house is covered with them). He has been in a phase for the last few months where he will only wear “tie up” shoes (though he can’t tie them) – no flip flops, no velcro… I really wanted him to have some waterproof shoes for summer and these Lego Crocs have done the trick.  If you have a Lego lover of your own, order a pair today. He (or she) will love them. They are available at Endless,, and

These awesome black Rick Owen wedges will undoubtedly be a conversation piece at any party. With a short summer dress, slip on these wedges and you will be ready to go. You won’t have to worry about your hair because everyone will be looking at your feet. I know they are a bit over the top for the average modern mom, but maybe it is time to just go for it.

It has taken me awhile but I have finally come to understand and love a massive wedge. Yes – they can actually be very comfortable. These United Nude Geisha Wedge Sandals come in a number of bold color combinations. Almost like funky modern art for your feet…
