My Two Favorite Things

My two favorite things are friends and shoes.  In that order.

Emma is a blogger-friend of mine.  She lives in Ohio and is 26 years old, the same age as me.  :-)

Emma has a pair of cute grey pumps that are too big for her.  So she offered them on her blog -- and called me out by name as a reader with ginormous feet.  I responded to Emma's offer of The Big Shoes with eagerness and postage.

The pumps arrived this week and they're adorable.  Knowing they came from a good friend makes them even more beautiful to me.  Thanks, Emma!

  3. Woo! There is nothing better than having a pair of cute shoes show up in your mailbox. Those are totally fabulous. I've recently become obsessed with grey toned shoes. As versatile, if not more than black.

  15. Love the gray suede! An absolutely perfect neutral. And the style of those pumps is so classic!

    Ally, I thought of you and was tearing up as I read the cover story on this week's NY Times magazine:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/12/magazine/whats-so-bad-about-a-boy-who-wants-to-wear-a-dress.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all

    The accompanying photo slide show, with boys at camp getting ready for a fashion and talent show, was achingly lovely. I so wish you had had a chance to do the same as a child. I'm glad you are doing it now, here, for your blog friends.

  17. Love, love the shoes. Holey moley, what I wouldn't give for legs that look like yours! By the way, your feet don't look big at all in the pumps.

  18. They are soo cute :) Whenever i see the word pumps i think of flats - anglo/american language differences!

  21. You know the saying "Can't see the wood for the trees"??? Well I can't see the shoes for the legs!!! What size is considered big in America? Reason I am asking is that I wear the biggest size shoe that you readily guy in a store which is really frustrating as I need a half size bigger but we dont get half sized in SA.

    1. Most women here are sizes 6-8. The largest size almost all stores carry is 10 and the selection in that size is limited. I'm a size-12 (or 13). I can squeeze into an 11. The only places I can find larger sizes is online, at places like Zappos.

  22. Cute shoes. I was gonna ask just how big those feet are, but then saw you answered in your previous comment. I'm a 10 and ALWAYS have a hard time finding them.
