Stylish Blogger??

Thanks to Kelly at the IKEA Bride and Manda Mack for tagging me with the Stylish Blogger award!Stylish Blogger AwardI’m supposed to list seven random things about myself, so here goes…

  1. I have a definite thing for shoes!  In fact I acquired these around Christmas and while I was down in the States.  Thank goodness I had packed lightly and could accommodate all of these shoes in the suitcase on the way home.
    Shoes 1
    Plus I have these ones coming in the mail…Shoes 2
    Yup, I love shoes.
  2. The majority of my good shoes have never seen the outside elements.  I keep them all in a filing cabinet at work.  I had a picture of said filing cabinet somewhere but I can’t seem to find it.
  3. I have caught – on more than one occasion – the heel of my shoe on the cuff of my pant.  I was walking through the Whole Foods Parking lot, caught my heel, and went splat on the ground!  And…of course there were people watching.  I solve that problem by wearing mostly skirts these days.
  4. I am genuinely concerned about tripping and falling while walking down the aisle at our wedding ceremony.
  5. My brother used to love coming up with witty names for my boyfriends.  In high school I dated Chicken Little (because he worked at the chicken place Swiss Chalet), Little Caesar (because he worked at Little Caesars), then I moved on to Peg Leg Ray (long story) and Porn-Shoer (because he had a pornstache and we talked about going snow shoeing). Neil – the Future Hubs – was nicknamed No Car Nick - because he didn't have a car and my brother couldn't remember that his name was Neil.
  6. The longest I have lived in one place is five years, and that was in London, England from 1988 to 1993. I estimate I have moved a total of 27 times however it is possible the number may be slightly higher than that.  That being said I will have been in Calgary for 5 years come July!
  7. We had to keep a journal in grade four that would involve writing five sentences down every day. I couldn't always think of five sentences, so often my journal entry would go like this: "I have a ham and cheese sandwich for lunch today. This afternoon I am going to ride horses. Weeee! Weeee! Weeee!" Thank goodness my journaling skills have improved or else I would have no blog readers if my entries mostly consisted of "Weeee! Weeee! Weeee!"

My question is, what are those shoes? How can you post pictures without brand/style descriptions! And, I also have a filing cabinet drawer for heels & suede boots at work :-).

I've definitely caught my heel on the cuff of my pant leg before (several times) but have so far managed not to hit the ground due to my cat-like reflexes (or just dumb luck).
I LOVE the purple and white shoes- are they fluevogs? That style has been catching my eye everytime I see it.
