I’m pleased to finally get around to choosing the Moving Time Giveaway winners. Thanks so much for all your suggestions and for taking the time to post (and tweet)! I’m working on quite a few new tutorials based on what everyone asked for. Winners were chosen at random.
And finally, a nice new version of The Fashion File by Janie Bryant, along with a cluster of red Dior Roses goes out to Leila B, at Three Dresses Project. I think what she’s doing is fantastic!
Ladies, please email me your addresses so I can send you some goodies.
I have several other giveaways planned for the near future…
Shoe people, this is the end of the post. Look away. Go check out one of the awesome blogs I linked to.
The singles have sentimental value and I won’t give them up.
Six of my shoes are tokens, carefully kept in a corner of my closet and never worn.
The blacks are my worn-to-death-for-years-and-cobbler-mended “smart” shoes. Some of them need another visit to the cobbler and/or a shine. I love well-made leather shoes- buy once and wear them for years.
The Chuck Taylors still see occasional wear, as do my athletic shoes (not pictured).
All that is to say, I had a shoe hole for summer. Not just in the side of my shoe where my little toe always wears a thin place, but a purpose-hole. I need an easy-wear summer shoe, a slip-on I can wear without socks, walk a few kilometers and wear with light colored skirts. Casual but not ratty. Pretty but simple and tough. I like to shop with a clear idea of what I want before I head out. This means I often come home empty-handed.
In my defense- they’re comfortable!
And not hideous! Maybe kind of cute, and they feel like I’m walking on clouds. These harmonize with my Summer 2011 Wardrobe colors, too.
A wise man changes his mind, a foolish man never?
Are you a shoe person? (I told you to look away!) What do you look for in a summer casual shoe? Where do your shoes wear out first?
(Also, does anyone mind if I use my banner to show close-ups of the lovelies I’m working with? Is it confusing?)
