The journey of a thousand miles begins with...the perfect pair of shoes.

Shoes: Fall/Winter sampling

As a commenter reminded me, I have been terribly remiss in posting about my shoes. How dare I? Did I not look at the title of my own blog? Crazy me. So, without further ado, here are some (just a few) of my fall shoes.

These are my absolute favorite boots in the world. You can see that I wear them a lot. They are looking rough. I've had the heels retipped 3 times and they need it again. They also need to be cleaned and polished. They are by Via Spiga and are super comfy. They were originally $370. TJMaxx had them at $250. I wanted them. I loved them. I coveted them. I went to check up on them every week to make sure they were still there (and try them on). Of course they were. Nobody in the podunk town the Army sent us to was going to spend $250 on a pair of boots, no matter how fab they were. I waited. They were marked down. I waited more. Marked down again. Finally, the day after T-giving 2 years ago, they were at $90 and I had a 50% off one item coupon. I rushed to TJMaxx, snapped them up, and they came home with me for $45! Woooooohoooooo!

These are a recent addition to my collection. M hates them, but I adore them. I get compliments on them all the time. Shows what M knows! They are Timberlands.

These I got at TJMaxx for $29! I know!!!! They are Marc Echo (IIRC-I'm too lazy to go check the label).

These little beauties are Anne Klein. Macy's had them for $175. TJMaxx had them for $40. Haha!

These aren't really fall/winter shoes, though I have been known to wear them to a holiday party. This is absolutely my favorite pair of shoes in the world. I also have a leopard print version that is my second favorite pair in the world. These shoes make me feel like a very hip version of Cinderella. Though if I left one behind, I'd totally go back for it. I snapped this a while back. I had worn the shoes and took them off in the living room. When I went to put them away, I realized that real life had intruded on my fantasy.

I have many pairs of ankle and calf height boots, but they are in my closet, which is currently barricaded by a huge stack of boxes. Oh, that's right! Our stuff came. I'm not prepared to write about it just yet though. There's drama, trauma and a few tears. Maybe a bad word or two, but I'll try to keep that out. Stay tuned!

I don't know how you do it. I can't do heels, unless they are wedges. I'm all about comfort, well most of the time. I wish I could rock high's just not in me. Glad your stuff finally arrived.

One gorgeous shoe after another! Fantasy got interupted at my house one year when our puppy ate my strappy Dolce & Gabbana heels. I loved those shoes so much they're in a bag in my closet because I can't bring myself to throw them out LOL

I popped in to wish you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year with your family :)

$370 shoes for $90, plus %50 off!?!?!? I just got thrift-bumps all over. They're kind of like goose-bumps, but waaaay better. Good for you!
The Anne Klein's are tres chic!
And P.S. I love the Timberland boot-heels.
