Shoe Porn PLUS Blog Love = A hella good Monday

April 19, 2010

Ally: I’m tired of the “G” after Ally. It’s been dropped. Will you survive??!!

So, while L-A and I were complaining last week about needing shoe porn, we neglected to check our fashionablepeople at gmail dot com email address. If we had checked it, we would have found that we have not one, but two shoe porn submissions. To sum, we suck. Thankfully, we throw a good party. So, you need not fear, we will be able to give you shoes with all the fixin’s today and next Monday. Yay!

Today’s shoes are brought to you by Ali (originally from Halifax, we went to high school together, now residing in San Fran) from 365 Fashion Rehab (you can also follow them on Twitter), one of my favourite fashion blogs. The blog documents Ali and Perdy’s challenge to not shop for…get this…ONE ENTIRE YEAR. To quote:

For one entire, whole, long year (365 days for those of you who may not be in the know) we will not purchase ANY (eeek!) of the following:

1. Clothes of any kind. No socks, underthings, coats, t-shirts, tanks, jeans, dresses, tights, workout gear, rain gear, snow gear, skirts, skorts (as if), sweaters, bikinis, etc…
 
2. Accessories. Including all pumps, t-straps, platforms, spectators, wedges, booties, Havianas, sneakers, clutches, hobos, satchels, baguettes, totes, weekenders, wallets, hats, gloves, jewelry, and, of course, sunglasses.
 
3. Make-up. No power plumping lip gloss, liquid eyeliner, fancy foundation, romantic red lipstick, eyelash curling mascara, shimmering bronzer, eye-popping shadow- you get the picture.
 
4. Home Decor. Broad category of decorative pillows, fancy candles, vases, stationary and general “I do not need it but think they are cute knick-knacks that who’s kidding who we probably don’t have room for anyway”.
 
5. Gifts. If we receive gifts in the categories above we cannot use/enjoy them until rehab is over!
 
That’s intense. Sort of puts my Carrie challenge to shame.
So, Ali, concerned that we did not have shoes to porn you with sent in some of her lovelies from when she was allowed to shop. After viewing these, I feel less sorry for her no shopping ban. Still feel sorry, but less so. Let’s take a look:

BCBG Nude Peep Toe Heel: bought at outlet in Napa Valley (after wine tasting, of course!)


Banana Republic Cream Boot: bought at Banana during semi annual sale 4 years ago- the perfect mod boot!


Ferragamo Velvet Mini Platform Heel:  from Nordstrom Rack, last shoe bought before starting Fashion Rehab, I am obsessed.


Gucci Vintage Ankle Tie Suede Heel:  bought in Del Mar, California at a vintage shop, those old ladies didn’t know what they were giving up!


Miss Sixty Black Leather Boot: bought in Palm Springs on girls week getaway, great “go-to” bootie.


Via Spiga Black Leather Knee High Boot: from Nordstrom, I have worn them with everything!

Le Sigh. I would maim for this entire collection. Particularly the vintage Gucci. Beautiful.

On another note, I’d like to congratulate L-A for a terrific showing at Halifax Crafters. So much work goes into that event, and all of the artists deserve mad props. I’m excusing her from needing to add to the Monday Shoe Porn post in hopes that she will get some much needed rest (aka lots of wine with a dose of Gossip Girl).

    I love that you would maim for my shoes, Ally.That is so sweet. The Ferragamos are my fave for sure, they fit perfectly (unlike the Gucci’s, it is a crazy struggle to try and look sexy/normal/halfway human in those things!). Thanks for the shout out! Love, A
