PORN!!!

First – a very important announcement. Apparently, this week only, DUO has free shipping to anywhere in the UK.  Just enter the code FPOCT0809. If, you know, you live in the UK. And a couple of you do!  For us Americans with non-standard calf sizes, we’ll just have to envy our more fortunate British friends.

BUT – on to the porn!

I have three pretty vintage-style shoes for you today.

It’s not a color I would traditionally choose, but for some reason, it really works for me. Also, I totally have a girl crush on Bettye Muller.

 

The next pair is also not a color that I would usually go for:

They also are very elegant & classic looking. And it’s hard to go wrong with Franco Sarto. 

 

The third pair (as is often the case) is my favorite. 

I love the heel (great for walking around), the detailed scrolling (and interesting – a logically named shoe!), and the color is just fantastic.  And the bonus? They are affordable!  (Only $50.) Also, free shipping if you live in the US.

 

In other shoe news, I am currently reading (in addition to Anna Karenina, which I only read on my lunch break at work, so it takes me a bit longer) Snow Flower & Secret Fan by Lisa See (link in my Good Reads on the left), and read all about foot binding today. That’s a different kind of shoe porn – more like foot snuff films. I still feel a bit nauseous. I mean, I knew about the binding, but not really EXACTLY how it was done. I think I could’ve gone the rest of my life without that knowledge.  So – umm – don’t bind the feet of your daughters.

  1. I vote for shoe number one as my favorite. And Snow Flower and Secret Fan was an excellent book 🙂 I read WAY too much!

    • I’m not sure I understand “read way too much” – I don’t think that’s possible.

      When I’m adequately supplied (meaning I’ve recently been to either a book store or library – and my finances prefer library), I read a book every 1.5 days or so (3 bus-rides worth). Unless, of course, that book is “My Sister’s Keeper” which was super long and took FOUR bus rides, leaving me unprepared for book club. *sigh*

      Shoe #1 is fantastic, and the only reason it’s not my favorite is because it costs about $350 more than shoe #3. 🙂

  2. Very nice shoe porn today!! Now, you have me thinking i can actually get away with a nice shoe like #3. I do like it but i have no clue about real shoes like you do!!! I get excited at the porn though so keep it up!!

    Here is my quote:
    “reading is sexy”

  3. You know, I never got the whole loving shoes thing until I started reading your blog! And now I do. Not that I could/would ever wear most of ’em, but DANG! Those are some hot shoe pictures!
    🙂

  4. Must go shoe shopping sometime soon!
