Pretty for Friday

I just wanted to send you off to your weekend with something beautiful to dream about.

It's bittersweet for me, since because this is a Christian Louboutin shoe I will probably never own it (not being able to squeeze my giant mudflap of a foot into it); but just knowing this shoe exists makes me feel better about the world.

My own foot is doing pretty well. I'll probably get my stitches out on Tuesday and while the foot is sore, it appears to be on schedule. Occasionally, I sneak into my closet to peek at my motivation for healing:

As yet virginal, they wink their little crystals at me in the darkness, waiting patiently. And last night, I had a dream about running -- oh, it was bliss. It may be the first time in my entire life when a pair of shoes from Saucony excites me even more than Manolo Blahniks. (Which tells you how completely off-kilter things have become.)

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

Long time lurker here - I share your plantar fascitis and therefore your pain. I'm way older than you are, a midwesterner with no need for schmancey shoes (and I now have to wear those awful $500 orthotics in every pair of shoes I own, if I want to get out of the car at my given destination.) Yet, these CL MJ's literally made me stop breathing, they're so beautiful.....
Wishing you a speedy recovery!

OH be still my heart I adore them to pieces (and printing them as we speak),Louboubtins are narrow and short enough in 35 for me. BUT theses ONES are pure , sheer heaven in leather for me. Manolo will make shoes in different heights for you I wonder if Louboubtin does? Like Anita I cannot wear high shoes Thanks for giving us Pin-up shoes & keep getting better k
