Words of the Wise


“Sometimes comfort doesn’t matter. When a shoe is freakin’ fabulous, it may be worth a subsequent day of misery. Soak in Epsom salts and take comfort in the fact that you’re better than everyone else.”    ―      Clinton Kelly


Back in Action

I know I have been MIA for a bit but life got busy and I tuned in elsewhere.  Sorry, shewsies.  I will try to be more diligent.

So the past two night, Lord DB and I have been watching the dog show on TV.  And we all know I love doggers, and love all things related to dogs, especially pups.  But is it a prerequiste for the dog handlers to wear terrible clothes and even more TERRIBLE shoes…not one cute shoe amongst them.  Now I understand you should be focusing on the dogs and the judging but I for one think the ugly shoes are detracting from the dog.  These handlers kill me…just look…













I have no words for these.  I think DSW needs to makeover the dog show!  Just saying.

A Monday Must-Rain Boots

So, today is another odd weather day for Cleveland, Ohio, thunderstorms, melting snow and rain.  An essential item for today-rain boots…so you can squeak across the floor at work like you are in 4th grade again, and make the slish-sloosh sounds whilst walking outside.  All good fun, I swear.  Plus if you are truly feeling regressive, jump in some puddles  – its warm enough – and keep your feet stylish and dry.  Just please, please don’t get ugly rain boots-and NO CARTOON CHARACTERS!  Not cute.  And don’t forget to tuck your pants in!

A Local Find – Ryan Haber

Reading through the Cleveland Plain Dealer today online and stumble upon this new shoe designer, Ryan Haber.  Not only local but ah-mazing.  He has already designed for several celebrities and has limited quantities on his website beginning in March.

Check him out…he has beauties like this:

or these:

Haber might give the old standbys a run for his money-edgy enough to catch your eye, but not too out there where you will be on the worst dressed list cause of your idiot shoes.

Check out his website and the awesome article in the PD.  Homegrown shoes…awesome.

Purple Rain…

So, it was a rainy December in Seattle, and my beautiful Cuban Chic and I were out shopping for clothes and shoes to wear out for a fancy evening with the husbands to view the Nutcracker and nice dinner downtown.  We spent hours upon hours searching and scoured the entire Southcenter complex in search of purple high heels that I NEEDED.  Not sure why, but we weren’t leaving without purple shoes of some sort.  After a couple of Starbucks stops later, I finally found my purpleys and purchased them.

Worn proudly to the viewing of the Nutcracker and to our great dinner…I doubt it my Cuban Chic has any idea the purple storm this started.  My obsession came slow at first but it has bloomed into full-blown purple fanaticism and has become my favorite of colors.

Just ask Lord DB about my Purple Rain coat…its straight from the 80’s and it’s the perfect royal purple color.  Its fantastic and I am obsessed so much he deemed it “Purple Rain.”  My collection of purple is still small but is growing constantly and I sure as hell know if I see purple shoes again, they will be mine!
