Something For a Rainy Day

 Another football Saturday coming up and Fall is here along with that we have our first rainy football forecast.  I hate to give up my high heels so I am going to go with a high heel wedge to give me a little steadier footing.  I found the Beeout Wedge Pump by Nine West that will be perfect for me.  This wedge with a 3 1/2 inch heel and a 1/2 inch platform looks good and should give me a little more stability than the usual stilettos I wear.
I bought this shoe in red for my team colors but it comes in 6 additional colors including navy blue
You can also get it in black leather, black suede, grey, and red suede.

Score With Touchdown

I recently scored a new shoe from Chinese Laundry called Touchdown.  I bought it in red to go with my schools colors since I bought them to wear to our football game last Saturday night.
And the gold studs just screamed football to me so they were perfect for my football game.

I love the 5 3/4 inch sky high heel.  These shoes are so comfortable to wear with the padded insole and the 1 3/4 inch platform.

You can also get this shoe in glitter gold
and basic black

I Want Your Vote

This is election year and I am asking for your vote.  Not for me but for my favorite fashion blogger, Princess Martha.

She is trying to become the new face for Caravelle and needs all of the votes she can get to move on.  She is already in the top 10 and I think she should be #1!  If you are willing to vote for her go to Caravelle's site and click on Martha's picture (it has her name on it so she is easy to find).  I thank all of you who are willing to vote for her.

Fall Is In the Air

We have had our first frost so I guess I have to accept the fact that fall is here.  With fall comes a change in the footwear that we choose.  This ankle boot from Steve Madden is perfect for cooler fall days.  It has a 5 inch heel which I adore and a 1 1/4 inch platform that makes this a very comfortable shoe and so easy to walk in.  The blush suede leather upper with easy side zip look great and are made for this time of year.  You can wear this shoe with jeans, a skirt and blouse, or even a dress.  So many options with a great looking shoe that will not break the bank buying them.

Sexy Strappy Studded Sandal

A white sandal after Labor Day, how dare I.  In this time of changing fashion rules this is a great shoe for those warm fall days still ahead of us.  Made by Chinese Laundry, this sexy sandal has a 5 1/4 inch heel and a 1 1/4 inch platform which gives it the sky high look I love in my heels yet a shoe that is not hard to walk in. The studs that adorn this sandal add to its great look and the padded insole make it comfortable to wear.  I had to have this sandal in white but for those of you who do not feel right wearing white after Labor Day it also comes in black.

This shoe was a bargain at $45 but hurry they are going fast.

Walk on the Wild Side

Take a step out on the wild side with this Leopard Print pump by The Highest Heel.  The brushed Leopard Skin upper is synthetic so no animals were hurt making this great pump.  The 5 1/4 inch gold metallic heel will bring you to dizzying new heights so this is not for girls who are afraid of heights.  And what a deal, you can get this shoe as low as $19 for some sizes.  I was not quite that lucky, I found my size for $30 and that is still quite a bargain.

If Leopard print is not your thing you can also get this shoe in more colors.

White Patent with chrome heel.

Black Patent with chrome heel.
And Red Patent with chrome heel.
Have fun flying on the wild side with these sky high heels!

Bright Sandals for Hot Days Ahead

Here we are going into the second week of September and I am talking about sandals instead of boots.  With the unusually hot year we have had so far I couldn't resist these Neon Pink Sandals from Qupid.  With a 4 3/4 inch heel and a 1 inch platform this sandal is very comfortable and easy to walk in for a heel that is almost 5 inches high.  The foot is cushioned for your comfort and it has a non-skid sole to help keep you upright.

If Neon Pink is not your color you can also get this shoe in Neon Green.

This is a great sandal at a great price, a combination I can't resist.

High Heels, Low Prices

I love a great pair of pumps and if you know me I also love a bargain.  I found Breckelle's Angie platform pump on Amazon at bargain prices.  This round toe platform pump has a 5 1/2 inch heel and a 1 1/4 inch platform.  The synthetic suede shoe comes in 7 colors so you can find a shoe for any outfit.  The cushioned insole makes this shoe very comfortable to walk in and it has a non-skid sole to help make sure you stay upright.  And the price was great, $18.50 to $30 de

I am also a college football fan, at least until it gets too cold for me.  I started out with the yellow pump because I needed a shoe that would go with my game day outfit.  It also comes in Aqua, Black, Blush, Honeysuckle, Hot Pink, and Leopard.

I loved the yellow so much I just ordered these in Hot Pink.  I am having fun with these shoes I hope you can enjoy them also.

Falling Temps and Rising Heels

I don't normally look forward to falling temperatures but this year I am (but I reserve the right to change my mind when temps and wind chills are below zero).  So with the coming cooler temps it is time to look at boots.  I found this great pair of Michael Antonio boots that I fell in love with.  I needed a pair of red knee high boots and these Michael Antonio boots from were just what I was looking for.

The studded straps with antique bronze buckles give these synthetic suede boots a touch of class.  The 5 inch heel with a 1 1/2 inch platform give them sky heel look in a boot that is very comfortable and easy to walk in.  They are going to look great at fall football games.  Amazon.Com also has these boots in Black and Tan.

I also found these boots for a little better price at 6 but they only had them in black.

Stone Studded and Wild

I think I have a new favorite shoe maker and I have to thank one of my favorite bloggers that.  Kelly Saks turned me on to my first pair of Wild Pair Heels and I loved them so much I have gone back for more.

The Harley by Wild Pair was just the shoe I needed.  I was looking for a fun pair of heels for a special occasion and these were perfect for what I was looking for.  This open toe pump has an ankle strap and a 5 1/4 inch heel, a height which I love.  It has a 1 3/4 inch platform which makes it a comfortable heel to walk in for such a high heel height.  I bought it in multi-color to go with the wild mood I was in when making this purchase.

This Stone Studded heel also comes in Taupe which I felt a need to order after receiving my first pair.

You can also get it in blue.

So many choices in a very fun shoe, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

RAGBRAI Heels Finished

I did it, 56 miserable miles in these heels.  Uphill and into the wind all day from Cedar Rapids to Anamosa.  I thought I was picking an easy RAGBRAI day to wear heels but boy was I wrong.  I couldn't wait to get out of these heels when I was done riding for the day.  At one point towards the end of the day I contemplated pitching the heels and riding the last 15 miles barefoot which might have been the better option.  I took the challenge and picked the day I would wear high heels while biking across Iowa so I feel good that I finished the day in my heels.  Probably the last day I will ever wear heels while riding RAGBRAI.  

At least that is what I am saying now.  Next January when next years route is posted and I have forgotten all of the bad things that happened this year I may feel differently.  When I have forgotten about the days the temp on the rode hit 114 degrees riding into the wind, the hills and wind going into Anamosa.  I will remember the homemade pie and ice cream at so many churches along the route.  Mr. Pork Chop waiting to serve me my daily dose of protein.  Brinkman's Homemade Ice Cream towards the end of each day.  Those delicious fruit smoothies scattered along the ride.  And you can't forget the people young and old all along the  route from around the globe that I had a chance to chat with.  The memories of heat, hills, and wind are already fading as I remember all of the wonderful things that happened to me on that glorious week riding across Iowa.

Watch out RAGBRAI XVI, Kelli is getting ready for you!

RAGBRAI Heels Update

I am going to do it.  With the help of my husband and one of my teammates I will be wearing heels for one day on RAGBRAI.  They are packed in my bag and in about 3 hours they will be on there way to Sioux Center Iowa to be part of the largest bicycle touring ride in the world.  471 miles and 48 of those miles you find these shoes on my feet.
Since the cage on my pedals are going to be hard on my heels I had to find a pair of heels that would not only work on my pedals but not cost me too much.  I found this Michael Antonio Pump for only $20.  This pump has a 4 1/2 inch heel with a 3/4 inch hidden platform.   A very sexy looking heel at a very economical price.
I will be wearing these pumps on day 6 of RAGBRAI riding from Cedar Rapids to Anamosa.  This is the shortest day and the reason I picked this day to wear these pumps.  You might even see them at the SuperSize Seven concert Friday night in Anamosa.

Red White & Blue 4th

Knowing that the 4th was going to involve a lot of walking on a hot day I wanted to look good, stay cool, and of course wear my high heels.  I found this wedge by Fahrenheit that was perfect for my 4th outfit.  The Mila Wedge by Fahrenheit was perfect for me.  It has a 4 3/4 inch heel with a 1 3/4 inch platform making it a  very comfortable shoe to walk in with a stylish high heel.
This wedge also comes in Blue (which I could have also used on the 4th) and Orange.

I paired my red and white candy striped wedge with a white sateen skirt by Jones New York
a red tank by Anne Klein
and I was all set for my Patriotic 4th of July outing.

High Heel, Platform, & Spikes

What a great pump, the Cali by Wild Pair!
I fell in love with these shoes when I first found them.  Or maybe I should tell you that one of my favorite bloggers found these first and I just found a website where I could buy them.  Kelly Saks who writes Kelly's Kloset made the the original find and I must thank her.  I actually fell in love with her complete outfit but right now it is about the shoes.  I found these shoes at and had to order them right away.

My shoes finally came and I was not disappointed, they were exactly what I had expected.  The sky high heel is 5 3/4 inches high which I absolutely love.
And with a 2 inch platform this open toe pump is a breeze to walk in and are so comfortable.  I can't wait until I get a chance to wears the shoes for a night out, I think maybe this weekend will call for a night out. has many fantastic shoes to choose from.  They carry the Wild Pair line which I have fallen in love with, don't be surprised if I write about more shoes by Wild Pair.

Hot Shoe for a Hot Night Out

Saturday was dancing at Denny Arthur's.  I went out ready for a night of fun wearing an above the knee length pencil skirt, lace trimmed camisole top, and my Hottie Heels.  The 5 inch heel on this hot pump really shows off my legs, and gives me that wiggle that has every pair of eyes watching me as I strut in.

This Hot Pump is from "The Highest Heel" comes in 7 different colors: Red Patent (the pair I wore), Black Patent, Black Velvet, Fuchsia/Yellow Heel Patent, Turquoise/Fuchsia Heel Patent, Yellow/ Fuchsia Heel Patent, and the newest color Beige Patent.
The two toned heels are fun, I have them in Fuchsia and I think I may order them in yellow soon.
I also have this heel in Black Velvet and love that shoe for a more formal setting.

After a while on the dance floor I did have to change my shoe, as much as I love my heels a night of dancing in these heels does get to a girl.  I try to always carry a pair of my Dr. Scholl's "Fast Flats" when I go dancing.
These allow me to dance the night away!!!
