A very special shoe porn

Welcome to this week’s very special episode of “Amy’s Shoe Porn.”

First, let’s dig deep into the gazelle mailbag.

From reader Christine (who, as far as I can tell doesn’t have a blog – if that’s a lie, please let me know & I’ll totally link to you).

Amy,

I love your shoe porn posts.  Because of them I had the courage to get (for me) really high shoes for a party.

Here’s a pic. Thanks for your blog.

I can’t tell you how much that warmed my cold, dead heart! Seriously! Someone actually appreciates my shoe porn! I’m sure my parents are proud. 🙂

But – she did send a photo, and I definitely approve of the shoe choice.

My only complaint is that there was not a full length photo of the dress, which looks very pretty. Well, done, Christine – and thanks for sharing that.

ETA: Christine sent a picture of the dress!  YAY! And it is just as pretty as it looked.  She is so dedicated – posing in such a manner to show off the pretty shoes.  Thanks again, Christine!

Now that we’ve finished with the reader mailbag (I don’t get a lot of mail), I want to talk about shoes. Although I have obtained a couple of pairs of shoes in the past year, I have only purchased one pair of non-running shoes in the last twelve months. That is not a lot – especially for someone who was previously adding a pair every two months or so.

I do have my favorite pairs of shoes, though – the ones that get the most use. I have three pairs of pumps (all with about 2.5 inch heels) that generally live at my office. I have my favorite pair of black boots that I wear when I have to do any walking. I have my seriously sexy pair of knee-high stiletto boots that I wear when I don’t have as much walking to do.

But now, spring is coming, so I can pull out my favorite sandals again – I have a great pair of black wedges with a cork heel that probably won’t make it through another summer – I wear those to death.

Tell me about your favorite shoes, please! And if you send pictures, even better! I will do my best to get back to our regularly scheduled porn next Wednesday.

  1. Sad that my dog just chewed up my fave cork bottomed sandals. I will need to investigate my closest and take some pics…I have a pair of black and white sandals that I think would be Amy approved.

    I too want to see Christine’s dress…it looks pretty fantastic!

  2. You’ve inspired me to send you a detailed picture montage of my favorite shoes. Stay tuned. I plan to drink too many glasses of wine tonight with the girls, so it should be perfect time for a shoe photo shoot!

  3. Amy, I don’t have a blog, but I did send you a picture of the dress.

    🙂

  4. Wow, those are some big heels!

  5. cute dress & shoes from christine! how neat.

    i’m glad it’s almost time for sandals again. since i never have to get dressed up for work, it’s flip flops or (gasp!) crocs all the time for a few months. ah, spring is finally here.

    • please, never mention crocs again. My soul just died a little. I’m not sure we can still be internet friends if I have to picture you wearing crocs.

  6. Her shoes are cute – way to inspire America, one pair of shoes at a time.

  7. how do i add a mileage side bar? remember im computer retarded!

    • Mine is not fancy; if your current sidebar is wordpress widgets, then just go to your widget editor in the admin site & add the “text” widget. Then you can type in whatever you want there & save it & update it at will.

      I’m sure there’s some kind of plug in that does it for you, but I am too lazy to do work for something that would make my life easier!

  8. I officially hate crocs. They had something to do with me breaking my TOE!!! Well, it was my fault but still I was wearing those darn crocs!!!

    My fav shoes are no where near shoe porn. Every hear of the brand camper? Yeah those!!

  9. I’m a bit lame, but my favorite pair of shoes are my running shoes–my Asics 2130s. Love them to death! 🙂
