Spicy Shoes

I recently spent some serious time in DSW looking for shoes to wear next month to Sara's wedding.  I've spent most of my life wearing cheap flats, or low chunky shoes.  I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of shoes in that store!  Sara, a shoe-junky, guided me towards the right section of the store where we spent a good hour trying on dozens of shoes.  To my absolute surprise, I adored these red ruffle shoes.  They are HOT!

But alas, the dress I'm wearing is navy and red just won't do.   Instead I bought the gold ruffle shoe by Nina which looks really great.  Even with jeans, right?   ;)

Grace joined us for a little shoe shopping.  She slept for an hour in the stroller....awesome little sweet thing that she is.  Then she was toted around the store, up and down the aisles while I finalized my first high heeled shoe purchase.

Kaylee and I have both practised walking around the house in my gold ruffle shoes.  I manage okay on carpet, but they feel very slippery on tile.   Any tips to avoid wiping out would be appreciated.

LOVE the shoes! Most shoe stores sell those sticky things to put on the bottoms to avoid slips and falls. Good luck!

LOVE those shoes! You are going to be a vision :-) I agree with Ronda, put some traction on those puppies too and you're good to GO!

Thanks for the blog link love- MWAH

I love the shoes too...I may have to go and visit DSW myself :) So I know this sounds crazy since you just spent money on these shoe and the last thing you want to do is scuff them up....but if you get on pavement or cement and just scuff up the bottoms as much as you can ( just do a little tap dance )it provides traction and you won't slip. (and you don't have to go buy anything else :) I did it for my wedding and it worked great!
