A shoe is a shoe is a shoe.....

Ok, those of you who know me know that is definitely not my philosophy when it comes to shoes. Love shoes. Buy lots of them. Usually extremely impractical ones. I've been looking for a pair of pointy red patent stilettos for some time and once I decided to make the red dress for the upcoming Derby party, I knew I had to have some. So after some looking, I found not one but two pairs.




Can you tell the difference between these two shoes? Yes, one has a wood look heel and one has a red patent heel. Other than that, can you?

I'll tell ya the difference. $35! I bought the wood heel one on Sunday for $65 and found the patent heel version today for $30. Now, knowing that I'm not going to be wearing Red Patent Leather pumps with 4" heels too, too often, I think the $30 version works just fine.

(See the red dress for which these shoes are intended on Lola in the background of the right photo? I'm about half done.)
