I work for shoes.....

Shoes, shoes, I'll give you shoes.....

You asked for it, now you're going to get it.
Yesterday was a shoelove day if there ever was one. I started the day receiving a nasty email (that was cced to several other people) that I did not deserve . So, I took matters into my own hands. Before the clock struck 9, I decided it was time to self medicate. I spent my lunch hour seeing an old college roommate and buying shoes. Wrapping my arms around an old friend from bygone days and buying new shoes for my 49 3/4 year old feet was the perfect antidote to the pain that plagued me.....

#1--Ever since I saw these shoes in a magazine, I had to have them. Now I do.


Granted, they are not exactly sexy. But, I love them. Carmen did not. I drove to meet him for a late dinner. I wore these shoes. The first thing he said? It wasn't "gee, honey, it's great to see you"......it was "I hate those shoes, you look like a little Dutch boy". Well, at least he didn't say I look like a BIG Dutch boy!

#2--I desperately wanted leopard pointy toed boots. There they were. I now own them!


Now, these are sexy shoes. A night out with the girls for sure. They will look amazing with the new jeans I bought during my PhDland shopping trip....

#3--I just had to have these. This style of clogs are my absolute favorite ever since the 70's! To find them in leopard print sealed the deal....


Okay, Okay....I know....my third pair of Leopard print shoes in one day. I couldn't help it. I needed healing.....

#4--Then, there's these. They just spoke to me. No...they yelled at me. They said "JUDI, YOU DO NOT HAVE A PAIR THAT LOOK ANYTHING LIKE ME! BUY ME! BUY ME!" I never ignore "the calling" in a shoe store....


Yes, I know, they are a little bit unusual. But, damn, they are fun....



Yes, I know....4 pair of shoes in one day...sinful. Like I said....my day did not start off well at all. I was determined to fix it. Thankfully, I figured out the cure.

But, I have one lingering issue.
I need your help.
Last year I saw these boots and I had to have them. They are red paisley.

Aren't they amazing?
Unfortunately, they were out of stock everywhere I looked. I was very sad.
Today....I found them.....in 2 colors. Life can be so cruel. I loved them both. After buying 4 pair of shoes already, I vowed to buy only one pair of these. I must decide swiftly!
So....I need YOU to weigh in (no pun intended!)on which pair you think would be a great Judi pair of boots.... the red ones or
the brown and black ones....


If you can't see the difference on your screen....you can check then out at zappos.com to a better look...

I need ALL OF MY READERS (yes, that means you....) to help me out here. Please vote for which paisley print you think I should buy. The red? The black/brown?
I'm counting on you....

Oh my Judi!!!I never would have thought that you would wear clogs!! yes, I loved them too, back in the 70's!! My poor fat little feet would never fit in those other shoes, so lucky you!!

As far as the paisely boots, I vote for the brown and black. I think they would go with more outfits. I wear about only 5 pairs of shoes.....sad isnt it? I wish I could wear other kinds but my feet hurt all the time so it is comfy shoes for me (thank the Lord for Lands End shoes!).

Anyway, have a great day, sorry to hear you have a crummy beginning yesterday....I have those days all the time (the girls I work with are a bunch of unhappy bitches!).

You fell for the red ones so you should have those. The leopard ones are all tan/black so get some colorful shoes, girl! Wear those red boots proudly. Angie

I like the red ones!

To me, the brown/black ones are not bright enough.

Not that I would ever wear them, but on you they would look great!

Wow, you bought all of those shoes on your lunch hour! You are a real power shoe shopper!

Wow Judi -

You are a power shoe shopper if I ever saw one!! My vote is for the red ones also. Don't you just love those emails? Just remember, what comes around, goes around!

First things first, Love the boots. I like the brown better, but as Angie said, you already bought 3 other brown pairs.
So I would go with the red.
I bet I do not own four pair of shoes. (Well, I do but the 5th and 6th pair are from 1999.)
I have a thing for purses. I went to New York a few years ago and bought 16 purses.
Yes, 16.
I think that is because purses do not come in sizes. Thank God, I don't have to ask for a size 20 purse!

Re: your comment on my blog, yes it's scary day in American when the two of us are MORE qualified to be a vice presidential candidate than the actual candidate. (And that's not saying much!)

We will be at Minutello's on Shady Ave watching (laughing at the) debate.

Judi,
The red pair are you and would look great for the holidays! Since I was one of the ones cc'd on your email...it was perfect for the bottom of my bird cage.

Red. Definitely red.

And those clogs (Dansko, right?) I own them -- in a cow pattern!

Shop on!

I love this post! : ) I have to agree with the girls who voted red because all of the other purchases are brown/black. The red ones do seem to shout "Judi!" BTW, I like the clogs, too. Sorry, Carmen! ; )
