Bunny Flats

  
There is always something about a quirky novelty shoe that brightens up my day. These bunny flats by Kate Spade have been on high rotation since nabbing them this past Fall. I admit, at first although I loved them I was unsure exactly how much I’d wear them; but sure enough, I treat them as a neutral flat with a cotton tail and they make their appearance every so often. 

These are comfy to boot with soft brushed suede and a fuzzy pom pom tail. Perhaps even cuter than the tail- the spade nose, the tiniest gold accent. The only unfortunate thing about these is that they are so light I can only wear them when it is completely dry outside, or indoors only. I know it is only January, but I can’t wait for spring to some so these can accompany me as I hop all around town. 

Anyway, are you a novelty shoe fanatic or would you rather keep it classic and cool? Let me know in the comments below. Happy weekend!

Saturday Accessories

IMG_1766

I plan on doing a little catch-up blogging over the next while. I have tons to share with you from my trip to Arizona over Easter break, and a lot of excitement coming up through the Spring. A couple weekends ago I went out with some girlfriends for dinner and had fun picking out some accessories before the night began.

I got those Manolo Blahnik BB pumps a couple years ago and I still love them just as much as I did when I first grabbed them. The colour is everything, don’t you think? Unfortunately they are a bit more stiff than some of my other pairs of Manolos so they don’t make it out quite as often as I’d like them to. I think at this point I own more BB style pumps than any other type of stiletto- and if you know my shoe closet you’d understand that that is quite the statement. Really they are just a great shoe. I know I compare them to Jimmy Choo’s Abel quite often but I have to say that MB is currently outnumbering JC. I can’t wait to share with you the latest addition from my trip on here. Don’t forget to stay tuned for that!

You may also remember that kissy face clutch by Kate Spade. It has made it onto Talk to My Shoes a few times now. I picked it up about a year ago while in Arizona when I was putting together an outfit for a special celebratory evening for E’s work. I love that it is a great size and super versatile- it holds everything, and more than what you would want to carry with you in a clutch and works just as well in the day time with a pair of jeans as it does in the evening with a cute dress. Definitely one of my better purchases. My favourite part? The “Hello Stranger” stamp on the backside.

I hope that everyone had a great Easter and that the Spring is treating you well. Today is very windy yet it is sunny so at least it is motivating to get up and get at ‘er. Thanks again for stopping by! Hugs.

Taxi!!! Shoe Review

With the way I have been going lately, these Kate Spade Taxi Flats are more than appropriate. Be it running between classrooms, gym, groceries or just out for general errands, these flats have been working there wheels in many ways.

It felt impossible to find these and I feel pretty excited and lucky to finally have a pair. I know that this style was released quite a while ago, and most recently in gold for the holidays, but when the original patent yellow was made available again, I pounced quickly (and barely landed on a pair). It isn’t like me to buy a shoe in patent leather, and though I enjoy the look of it, I never seem to do well with the stiffness of the shoe. However, these have proved to be quite comfortable. After reading some reviews online I was a little hesitant about sizing- everyone saying they pinch and to go up half a size, but I followed my gut and went with my true size (7) and they have been more than fine.

I’m looking forward to wearing these again and again. Kate Spade does such great novelty work and the compliments I’ve received on this pair have been endless. Go pick them up, I think you need a pair too!

Pink Pumps: pt 3

I hope everyone is recovering well from an excellent Valentines (long) weekend! I, on the other hand, find myself spiralling downwards along the path of very congested sinuses and worse, the feeling of hot knives in my throat. All that aside, the weekend was wonderful, today was great and I want to accomplish as much as possible throughout the rest of the week. Tomorrow is already Wednesday, can you believe it?

Finishing up that Valentines series from before- y’know the one with all the pink pumps? I want to share with you the last pair I have chosen. Well, actually, it was the pair that I saw that triggered the entire idea, but regardless here it is.

Kate Spade Valentines

I don’t know what it is about Kate Spade products and I lately, but I am just on a total binge. Those great birthday heels, fox flats, and my taxi flats (coming soon to Talk to My Shoes) I just haven’t been able to resist. I picked this pair of floral themed pumps for Valentines as roses are obviously a “thing” during this time of year. Specific to the print itself, I love the use of grey in the colour scheme. I feel it really brings some balance and a fresher look to it’s mid level, grounding the shoe a bit more and keeping them from being totally over the top.

So who got roses this past weekend? I admit, I passed on them and opted for a pedi and a treat at Sephora instead. If you missed out like I did, please accept this bouquet from me to you. xoxo
