Jeffrey Campbell You’re so Good to Me

I love wearing heels. I can’t help it, there’s just something about them that instantly make me feel sexier. It probably has something to do with the fact that I think heels are just sexy in general (except for a pair of boring pumps because I don’t think anyone should be wearing “pumps”). Give me four inches of heel over a pair of flats any day.

I think shoes are an important part of anyone’s wardrobe. I even take my punks’ shoe fashion very seriously. That’s why yesterday Emmerson got a new pair of hot pink sandals. She needed a pop of color to go with her new white jeans and blue and white striped top. Obviously. I’m actually kind of a bitch when it comes to footwear. I just can’t understand anyone wearing a pair of athletic shoes for a night out. Thankfully, my husband understands this so he knows better than to even try it. I think shoes say a lot about someone so they deserve careful consideration. You can take a fabulous outfit and ruin it by wearing the wrong shoes. This is serious business people.

You don’t even have to spend hundreds of dollars to rock some great foot candy. For instance, I’ve bought three pairs of sandals at Target this season for under $60. They might not last for two years but when I’m spending under $20 a pair I don’t mind when they fall apart. And, no, I probably don’t need three pairs of sandals. I could probably make due with one pair but quite frankly the pressure of narrowing it down to one was too much and I gave in simply to lower my blood pressure so really it was a health conscious decision.

But enough about sandals because that opens a whole other topic like maintaining proper foot care (i.e., painted toenails) and this is about heels, not summer foot maintenance. A couple of months ago I was at my favorite local boutique, Alter Ego, and found the most fabulous pair of heels. There was instant chemistry and I knew they were coming home with me. It’s been true love ever since.

These Jeffrey Campbell beauties are one of the best pairs of heels to ever happen to me. And while my punks often enjoy clomping around in my heels they are not allowed to touch these. I don’t want to have to kick any of their asses because they dinged up my pretties, so really, it’s best this way. I’m only thinking of the children and their safety because I’m a good mom like that.
