Can too much of a good thing really be too much?

Posted in Shoes with tags on June 15, 2010 by BEA'sBrideGuide

I moved to New York City the summer after college and quickly decided to never be one of the women in a suit and tennis shoes on the subway.  Flip flops got me so far and then stepped in Tory Burch. Sure cool kids had been wearing Tory Burches for years. I am no cool kid. Ten pairs later I may not be cool but I am a border line addict.

Not featured the patent leather pair that lives at work, and the two black leather pairs that sacrificed themselves to the streets of NYC.

Lately people seem to really question my collection and it has me wondering…when will enough be enough?  Probably never. I recently added a silk top and GORGEOUS hobo bag to the collection. So the addiction is spreading…

I’ve been eyeing.

Tortoise Shell PVC Flats: $195

Sally Heel: $265

The Sally looks a bit like the poor man’s patent leather Sophie Heel (closed toed, all patent leather even the logo). I once made a sales girl call every Tory Burch boutique in the country looking for those shoes in a size 7. If anyone has a pair they are interested in selling…drop me an email IMMEDIATELY!!!! And I love you.

I spent all winter lamenting my dry hair, unfashionable puffer jacket, and battles with my ice scraper.  Yesterday during what can only be describe as a typical monsoon I donned caramel colored boots, my favorite stretch jeans, and an oversized grandpa cardigan complete with my beloved chain necklace. More than one person commented on the fact that I looked “cozy”. My boss informed me my rain jacket is typically used by people skiing. So what I like to be warm I guess.  As I sit on my porch enjoying a gorgeous sunny afternoon my hair is slowly curling thanks to the humidity. I have to be honest.  I miss fall.

I can’t wait for 65 and sunny with 0% humidity.  I’ll be wearing the likes of these…

My recent spree of weddings led me to one of my favorite cities, Charleston. While I’m still trying to figure out a career that will take me there (readers please send in suggestions if you have them!), I took home more than a few souvenirs. It’s hard to pick a favorite between the needlepoint loafers from By Paige! and the vintage jewelry. I still have a few wishlist items but that’s ok…I need an excuse to go back afterall!

By Paige! Needlepoint shoes: $142

Vintage Westie Puppy Pin

Vintage blue-green gem necklace

One day I’ll be back to Ben Silver for my sunglasses…

Red tartan sunglasses: $355 at Ben Silver

Despite only wearing flats to work (I firmly believe when wearing heels I should be perched on a chair where my feet can be admired not sitting in a back stock room or running around a department like a mad woman) I love shoes! My newest additions, as soon as May 11th rolls around, are the Val by Nine West Boutique 9.  Featured in May’s Elle these shoes are beyond perfect. Clearly a knock off of Christian Louboutin (sorry  Nine West they are!) but with enough of a twist that I didn’t even feel a moment of guilt snapping them up. Can’t wait until they have arrived and are up on the blog!

The Val - Boutique 9 Nine West - $199

If I Were a Shoe…

Thanks to Elle of A Wonderfelle World for including me in her My Style Monday Post on what shoes other bloggers would chose to represent themselves. My pick? A pink glittery Christian Louboutin of course. Today I am feeling a little bit more like a Chanel clog though….check back for the post on my new favorite shoes (and no I didn’t splurge on the Chanels but I got great look alikes!)

It’s all about shoes for me lately….here are my newest reasonable obsessions. Not that the Halston shoes weren’t reasonable…

Jessica Simpson Sabina Caged Sandal: $109.95

DVF Opal Crisscross Wedge: $295

Jeffrey Campbell Charlie Clog: $126

As winter finally ends (kind of…the sun is out at least) I’m taking the wood from my fireplace to my feet and am really excited about adding some bare feet soon!
