in my shoes

Today was a hell of a day, sometimes work goes down like that. The degree of suffering, the nakedness of despair, it's too much to even try and share no matter how much it rattles around in my head. So instead I'm going to talk about shoes, because if I don't talk about shoes I might break down and sob and no one likes a crier.
So back to the shoes. This morning when I was getting ready to leave J said something to the effect of those shoes are hideous. The shoes in question are ones I've had in my closet forever, I almost never wear them and yet find them endearing and perhaps even sassy and they were super cheap (for some reason that qualifier matters a great deal). Of course, J has no sense of style and I've told him so, in fact several folks at my work were highly complimentary of them which of course I've enjoyed gloating about when I came home.

But figuring that the jury may still be out, I of course must turn to you.
In or out, amigas? Inquiring minds want to know.

I think they're hot, esp with those jeans. Meow!

Omaha Mama said...

Sassy? Yes.
Hideous? No.

Trust your instincts and go on with your bad self.

cinnamon gurl said...

I think they look hot.

Blog Antagonist said...

Honestly? Not a fan of the pointy toe. BUT...I like the embellishments and they do look cute with the jeans.

Gina said...

I love them. They are easily something you would see in my closet.

Jerri Ann said...

I love them and with those jeans they are wonderful. I have big fat feet and probably couldn't pull them off but just in case you decide to get rid of them (and they are of course my size), I'll take them off your hands for you, lol.

I love them.

Mad said...

1. I love them.
2. You work with the homeless and are likely on your feet all day and you still manage to look more fabulous (foot-wise) than me in my comfy sit-down job.
3. Now that I've seen a few BlogHer pics of you on Facebook, I can add the gorgeous face to the sexy feet and get all aroused.
4. Respectfully. From a distance. Sigh.

Anjali said...

Sorry you've had such a lousy day! The shoes are awesome~

Shania said...

In, most certainly in.

crazymumma said...

Yeah, when life sucks, when you see too much suffering sometimes you must get light. This I understand.

So, In. most assuredly in.

And I knew, and am so happy to see with photo verification, that you are indeed an open seam chick.

my kinda gal.

hele said...

They are almost as sexy as the feet they are on.

F, who often gives me the you are not wearing that are you remark came home with a shiny red pair of Adidas tracksuit pants the other day. Very, very shiny.

Kyla said...

Don't ask me. Most of my shoes could perform some sort of orthopedic function. Heh.

I'm sorry today was rough. I wish we could sit together over drinks...completely avoiding whatever is rattling around in our brains. ;)

Lara said...

First of all - they are a beaut of a pair. Secondly, tell J if he is making you shi*% in a hole and stir it and everything else that goes along w/it, there shall be NO judgment on your shoes! :) Can you tell I still can't get over the whole toilet post? LOL!

QT said...

LOL at lara!!

In. Most definitely.

liv said...

they are perfectly, divinely you.

heels said...

Cute! What's so wrong with them?

Amy Y said...

I love them. I'd ask to borrow them if my feet did not resemble Fred Flintstone's.
And that they were a good bargain makes me love them more :) Especially if you found them at a thrift store...

ms chica said...

I probably couldn't walk in them, but it doesn't keep me from loving them.

Cecilieaux said...

I'd like to see the whole shoe.

Bobbi said...

They're extremely cool... I'd like 'em in a couple of different colours! (What's the shoe situation of the critic?? Are his shoes so much better? Let's see pics!)

painted maypole said...

fun and sassy indeed.

they don't look COMFORTABLE, but they are fun and sassy.

;)

Bobbi said...

I dunno... I have shoes that are similar in style, if not design, and they're very comfortable, actually!

flutter said...

a pointy toe elongates the line of the leg :) sassy, my love, sassy.

bgirl said...

with the jeans YES. love it.
imho with skirts no...

what can i say, i am a flip-flop girl.

Z said...

I've got some rather similar shoes I bought in India (very cheaply). They haven't got backs so I don't find them all that easy to walk in, but I wear them in the house sometimes. I like them. I don't think men really understand shoes.

moosh in indy. said...

If they have a kitten or stiletto type heel? Fierce.
Flat? Pretty.
Wedge? Debatable.
kiss kiss

mamatulip said...

Very nice. And I'm jealous because I couldn't fit my fat-ass, wide, bunioned feet in those babies if my life depended on it.

Magpie said...

he's all wrong. they are fun.

Chicky Chicky Baby said...

I can't imagine them with another outfit but I love them with jeans.

I say keep them. yeah.

Joker The Lurcher said...

you can walk in them? they look lovely, specially with the jeans.

Ally said...

I think they look really terrible. SOOOO terrible, in fact, that you should send them to ME and I will find a good way to dispose of them. Size 9, right? Send 'em over. Ahem.

Kelly said...

With those frayed jeans, those shoes are all about hotness.

Maggie, Dammit said...

LOVE them. Seriously. They're straight up hot.

Defiantmuse said...

ok. if they had a rounded toe? I'd wear them dude. but you know how I feel about the pointed toe. All wicked witch of the west-ish.

know what I'm finding most interesting right now though? the number of comments you have about a post you wrote about shoes.

carrie said...

Those are fierce!

But how will they do in the jungle? ;)

Anonymous said...

Purr-fect! Made for walking to wherever you want them to take you!

Janet said...

I pretty much have the exact same pair. So, obviously, hot. ;)
