Unforeseen Peril

Okay, maybe not peril, more like unforeseen annoyance, but that's not nearly as interesting a title, is it?

I went out for drinks Wednesday night and I was wearing these shoes:


(Yes. They are good. And I do appreciate them, believe me. I waited a long time for these shoes.)

Nothing wrong at all with these babies, except I was wearing them with some wide-legged trousers that I had hemmed myself, and I spent all evening reaching down and unhooking the thread in the hem stitching from where it'd gotten itself wrapped around the sequins on the backs of the shoes. It is a testament to Mr. Armani's high-quality manufacture that none of the sequins popped off, because I stood up more than once without checking them and while I may have to re-sew some of the stitching on the trousers, the shoes are perfect. Note to self: These shoes with skirts only. Note to everyone else: remember, tricked-out shoes can be just that -- tricky.

On the other hand...

...so totally worth it.

I would also like to point out that most of the shoes on this page are on sale. (Not, unfortunately, the Loubies or the Manolos -- calm down & wipe the drool off your chins.) So go -- getcha some twinkly toes. You won't be sorry, I promise.

I paged and paged down that thinking "Where the Louboutin paillette shoes?" "She must have included the Louboutin paillette shoes!" Then I found them. I should have had faith.

Ruby slippers! Yes, dear husband, I do need another pair of red shoes.

I'm a big fan of the sequin heel. I got all three of these - http://shoedaydreams.blogspot.com/2007/11/sassy-elegant-or-smoking-hot.html

The it's hard to decide which are my favorites but the red ones are especially ruby slipper-ish.

The sequins on these are smaller so I think they would be less likely to snag on pants
