Crimson Blues

The last time I owned red shoes, I think I was five.  Since I've organized my shoes into racks, I noticed a trend - 98.5% of my shoes are black, tan, and like 3 with some sort of color.  When I saw these shoes on Piperlime, I placed the black version of the shoes in my basket but then something reminded me that maybe you don't need another pair of black flats.  However, because I adore these flats and they are sooooo comfy, I think I may buy another pair in a neutral color so I can wear them more often.  Does anyone else stick to neutrals when buying shoes?

Pep In My Step

I wore my DIY cap toe pumps this week in court.  I had two back to back hearings and on top of thinking about my cases, I couldn't help but worry that the white paint was going to peel off.  I just had this image of my case being called and as I'm walking up to take my place, the white paint completely falls off in front of the crowded court room.  Well, it didn't and they survived a long day at the office.  I threatened my hubby that after I finish painting the rest of my shoes, I'm going to cap toe paint his Nike's.  I'm thinking purple...he'd definitely hate purple.

Unexpected Date Night

So the stripes on this dress are definitely blue but shhhhhhh...don't tell the girl in these photos because she definitely thought they were black until now.

After work, my husband and I had plans for grocery shopping and a Target stop.  You know, date night.  Not really, but since we didn't feel like cooking, we headed to one of our favorite restaurants.  An unexpected date night...until we ran into my mom who was having dinner with her friends.  Small town life ;-)

Rule Follower

Since I wore this on labor day, I technically didn't break the no white after labor day rule.  Has anyone broken this "rule" yet?  Where did that even come from?

DIY: Cap Toe Pumps

I've always adored Stuart Weitzman.  One of the most stylish woman that I looked up to was (and still is) my grandmother and she always had a pair of Stuart Weitzman shoes on her feet.  When I spotted these Stuart Weitzman 'Capsized' Pumps, it was love at first sight.  However, my wallet wasn't so in love with those beauties. Thanks to the magic that is Pinterest, I found numerous tutorials on painting cap toes on pumps.  Since I fell ill on Saturday and couldn't cheer the Gators on at the Swamp, I did the next best thing and painted my shoes...hmmm, not sure how that was going to work out.  I actually really really like how they turned out.  They aren't perfect but unless my Stuart Weitzman lovelies go on super super super duper clearance sale, these diy pumps will do just fine.

I used acrylic white paint and a gloss varnish as I used patent leather shoes.  I taped up all the sides then applied around 3 coats of paint and 2 coats of gloss varnish.  I waited around 2 hours for them to dry then carefully peeled the tape off and voila!  If you have any questions let me know :-)
