I could go for a new pair of black pumps... maybe a pair of the peep toes. I bet some of these are on sale by now!

I really love the Badgley Mischka pumps from the "bows" section -- $200 is pricy but for a special occasion I would love those!

The only trick I know is to buy a really comfortable pair. I have a pair of 3-inchers that are so easy to walk in, but also a pair of 1.5-ers that I wobble on.

I find in general that I need a slightly thicker heel and cheat for height by going with a platform pump. Kitten heels and spindly stilettos are just complete no-nos for me.

I'm right there with you..!! I *LOVE* shoes!! And Bags... but shoes ..wow do I love shoes. I have a shoe shopping planned for after work today, and I couldn't sleep since saturday night 'cuz I was too excited over it (now i feel like claiming i'm sick and skipping out of work early lol).

One question though, is there a trick on how to WALK on stilettos like these? I own at least 2 pairs of stilettos but i'm really bad at walking on them.. any tips?

I love the lace and bow versions best but the little disco ball Kate Spades are just adorable!

Okay. I'm completely lusting for over half of these.

The cutouts are so pretty! I find them so elegant, like a pretty, feminine tattoo for your feet :)
