Make It Work

Chicisimo Blogettes Summer Party

The fabulous Chicisimo team is throwing a summer party tomorrow, August 16, and you’re invited!  Dress code is casual, and of course, chic.  Send a picture of what you plan to wear or a link to an outfit you’ve already posted on your blog to the lovely Maria at chicisimo@gmail.com.  Don’t be late and send in your picture before tomorrow.  I’ll be attending.. hope to see you there!

Chicisimo Blogettes Summer Party2

So the great thing about moving is finding things you haven’t seen or may have temporarily lost.  Cyndi Lauper CD – was lost but now found.  Let the overplaying of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” start up again.  I also found several pairs of neglected and unworn shoes.  Score.

Since my shoes are all out of hiding, I thought I’d share with you some of my daily choice footwear.

ShoesColin Stuart studded booties

Shoes2Vintage ankle buckle boots & Steve Madden boots

Shoes3Jeffrey Campbell Biz Belted Booties & Dolce Vita Phoenix sandals

Shoes4Vintage Cole Haan shoes & Vintage black and white lace-up boots

Shoes5Topshop Aztec studded boots

Shoes6Urban Outfitters canvas wedges

Shoes7Urban Outfitters boots & Vintage denim shoes

Shoes8Jeffrey Campbell Mel shoes

Shoes9Carlos Santana shoes

Shoes10Steve Madden booties & Nine West lace shoes

Without being able to splurge on high-end designer shoes due to my lack of funds, I make do with what I have and am always on the hunt for vintage finds.  I practically wear my vintage Justin Roper boots any chance I get.  In the famous sentiments of T.G., “Make it work.”

Thanks so much for bearing with me during my absence.  I’ll get back to everyone’s comments this week and can’t wait to catch up on all of your blogs!

    Love your shoe collection! Like you, I am short of funds , but unlike you I have problems with my feet so I am always on the search for comfortable shoes – but with some style (please).

    Fantastic shoe collection Honey!

    Oooooh I Frankly think that your Shoe-collection must sound as such an authentic “Fetish Dream”, placed under the (wide/electrifying) sign of a “GLAM Rock-issime” palette !!!
    Hope you’re Well Dear.

    Becs! Yay, you’re back! You have an amazing collection of shoes! I have like three pairs :-)..since I live in a tropical weather, my daily footwear is pretty much sandals and since I walk a lot, as much as I love to wear heels, it’s not really practical for me.

    Hope your new move was successful and that you’re all settled now! xoxoxxoo

  9. August 16, 2009 at 2:15 am

    How are you, dear? I hope the move is going on successfully!
    OMG – your shoe collection is HUGE and amazing. I love the vintage suede boots on the left (Steve Madden on the right), your studded Steve Madden booties on the last picture – and you know what??? I HAVE THE SAME PAIR of the Dolce Vita shoes! In flat and heel version!!! 😀
    Wishing you and Mel a relaxing + lovely weekend and sending you all my best wishes for the ongoing move. Loooooooooooooooots and loooooooooooots of hugs and kisses PLUS much love always, Sofie

    I seriously am drooling after your shoe collection. The fact that you don’t have designer shoes makes it that much more drool worthy!

    Glad to hear that the moving craziness is over!

    Ahh, I’ve missed your posts! Thanks for the glimpse into your shoe closet! I’m in love with those studded booties. I agree that’s the one good thing about moving… after my move, I shopped in my own closet for the longest time. I still do… it’s amazing how many neglected items you end up accumulating!

  28. August 19, 2009 at 8:43 am

    Love your shoes collection sweetie

    Hi (again) Becs! I just wanted to let you know about our rotating header (thanks for stopping by our new site btw ;).

    The rotating header came with the free wordpress template we used:

    But if you don’t want to change your entire template there are ways to just change out your header. I did this on our old blogspot blog last year for a while. All I did was google “rotating blog header” and there are sites that let you follow some pretty easy html code. Let me know if you need any help. This seems to break it down pretty well:


    Hope you guys are settling into your new home! Happy Nesting!

  30. August 19, 2009 at 1:35 pm

    wow, you have lots of black shoes!!!
    they are freaken cool!!!

  33. August 20, 2009 at 4:52 am

    gosh look at all those shoes! 😮

    hey thanks for the tip with the justin ropers boots. I have been looking around on etsy and ebay and have seen a few pairs, i even checked out his online store though i’m a bit confused with the sizing. the shoes seem to have an odd sizing system..

    anyways hopefully i pick up a pair sometime soon, they look fab and are quite affordable 🙂

  34. August 20, 2009 at 5:27 am

    like the outfit options that you came up with for the party! love all your shoes honey, the vintage buckle boots are yummy honey!! they are my fave.
