Pink Shoe Day

PLEASE tell me you have shoes colored other than brown, black or navy!
If you don't have something red, purple or orange, get thee to a thrift store!
That's where I got mine.
I had to have them!
Three inch heels with a half inch platform made them outrageous and impractical.
Did I care?
No.
Today Rebecca and I had a Pink Shoe Day.
Just because, as it happens, we both have pink patent leather shoes.
I knew I got mine for a reason!
Rebecca is already staking her claim.
"Mom, can I have your shoes when I grow bigger?
Please don't give them away."
"Yes, you may have them. I won't give them away."
I would gladly give them to her today.
My feet were KILLING me!
As much as I love high heels, my feet don't. :)
My original plan was to collage the heels with mod '60s patterns, pour plaster of Paris into the shoes and use them as bookends or doorstops.
Guess I can't now.
Rebecca would never forgive me.

I was just noticing the other day that I have tons of BLACK shoes and very little else. I have one pair of red shoes, and that's about it. Time to branch out a little, me thinks.

Your pink shoes are adorable and sure to brighten up any gray day.

I have pink shoes!!!BUT they are not pink patent leather. Is it not amazing that the cutest shoes are those that kill your feet. But there you are smiling - may be forced - but you are smiling. Nope, you can't do anything with them now accept save for your little one! I'm kind of happy.... love those shoes. Hugs
