They are. I don't have anywhere to wear them, though.
Just bought some songs on iTunes, which include Muse's new single... which is pretty crap. As crap as it is, I've somehow still managed to fall in love with it.
WOW. Those are some CFM pumps!
I wish I could wear heels like that.
Lol, CFM pumps! I had to google what that meant... ahem. I don't think I'll be wearing them in public.
Just owning them makes me feel good. That mysterious happiness that comes from owning sexy shoes...
Fancy paper. I'm a stationary nerd. Or is that stationery?
Damn, Lumi. Sexy pumps there.
Stationary = still, unmoving
Stationery = cards & papers
So, you could be a stationery nerd who is stationary.
Vince Flynn's latest Mitch Rapp novel, Kill Shot in paperback.
The Next Generation Stark Trek movies
Pre-ordered the Avengers 2-disc Blue Ray/DVD.
Some groceries for the next few days and a little gas for the car.
I bought a box of delicious sangria for a party and an Asian money tree plant for a friend's birthday.
Picked up an apple pie for hubby's birthday. I also bought him a box of his favorite candy, Hot Tamales.
If you do decide to wear them out(!), there are ways to tone them down a touch. In fact, despite the obvious pairing for them being sexy evening outfits, depending on your figure/tastes they'd be surprisingly versatile in some really smart daytime looks.
For instance, they'd go great against tan outfits when autumn arrives (think suits or more casual but still elegant combinations, like those long cardigans) and right now against white (think simple summery dresses) or navy/white (think nautical-inspired outfits). Dangerously, sexily smart but still day-appropriate.
For a more fun(ky) look, you could even try them against a black/white polka dress, with a few red accessories. For a more casual look, faded slim denim looks great against red high heels. These last two looks are quite retro/vintage in their ways, but could be done with a modern feel. In some ways, patent rather than suede would be easier for these two looks, but I think the suede can still work.
The key is to aggressively limit your palette to solid neutrals (black for night and tan, white, mid-light grey, etc for daytime) to keep the red colour the highlight of the look and use textural interest in the other items to balance the visual grabbiness of the shoes. If you introduce a pattern rather than a solid into the rest of your look, make sure it's bold and simple enough to counterweight the shoes (eg. a polka). If you introduce another colour rather than a neutral, I think at most you could venture into a really dark navy blue.
When it bears fruit, does it yield Yen or Renminbi?
A box of rocks for my geology-minded almost 7 year old. Yup, I bought a box of rocks.
Lego Batman 2 for my little boy whose having a tough first week at school. Thought he was going to cry when we left him this morning.
^Aw. Those first few days of school can be rough.
A beer at Citi Field
Another bag of groceries to supplement all I bought a couple of days ago along with another figure I wanted at the local toy shop.
I have no idea--didn't even know that it bears fruit!
