Tights Run Through My Mind

There's a sale on Lauren by Ralph Lauren tights right now at Bloomies. I like the Microfiber Argyle Tights. Something about argyle just seems to be appropriate for a librarian. *wink* Sale runs (not the hosiery!) through January 2nd.

PS Does anyone find the notion of Spanx hose a little odd? I mean they began as just the tops of pantyhose, and now they've added legs again, WTF.

Tat's The Way I Like It!

I'm so in love with these tatted footwear pieces from TotusMel that I may just have to learn to tat! Until then, I accept gifts!


A Shoe-In Of A Holiday Hair-Do!

It's Like Christmas!

It's like Christmas up in here!

This is how I do the stocking hanging -- but I do that several times a week. *wink*

I'll try to make it a bit more holiday-esque...

The stockings were hung in the bathroom with care
With hopes that they wouldn't need too much repair...

Because momma's saved all her pennies for shoes! (What a surprise, right?)

It's not that I dislike my stockings (you know that's not true!), but I've been waiting all season for the sale on shoes at Macy's!

It's time to make sure I'm well shod for parties this season (all my work parties happen after the new year) and for the rest of the winter season... Maybe a few sandals for spring. Well, some shoes don't really have a "season" do the? Sexy is sexy no matter what the time of year.

And I'm taking advantage of the sale to get me all the sexy shoes a shy but still oh so sexy librarian can afford. (Shoes are me at my exhibitionistic finest!)

I wait all year for this sale. (Why wait on Santa when a girl can make her own dreams come true? Plus, I think I'm on his naughty list lol What do you think? Am I too naughty for the gift of shoes?)

I need these

And these

And oh yes, these!

Another pair of booties -- in red -- isn't too much, is it?

I'm simply giddy, can you tell? How about you tell me which shoes you'd get?

UPDATE: If you missed that sale and you've got holiday cash, check out the fantastic women's boots sale at Macy's!

Sorry, Dior, No Sale

I don't know about you, but when shoes cost $576 -- on sale, yet, I don't expect them to look like the leather was cut with pinking sheers. That's too kitschy for such pricey shoes. Plus, the saw-edge-points do not look at all comfortable for this girl who spends so much time on her feet.


I Love Buttons On My High Heel Boots

A Pour La Victoire sale at Gilt, where the incredible black leather Suzie boot is on sale for just $169 -- regularly $495!

Quite Possibly My New Favorite Blog

After the long days on my feet this holiday season, I love to sit back, soak my feet and giggle and nod my way through Hey girl. I like the library too. by "Ryan Gosling." Found via Kitsch Slapped.

Still Right

Still thinking about the recent Victoria's Secret show and how right I am... This time, regarding my love of spats.

Basic Little Black Pumps

Your classic little black dress needs these authentic vintage black suede kitten heel pumps -- love the satin detail work on the very pointy toes. ...Can I coin the term "stiletto toes"? So pointy! So sexy!

Sexy Librarians

You know I love these sexy librarian embroidery designs from Sublime Stitching!


Sexy Galoshes?!

I find these vintage Puddlers books seriously sexy. A must have for vintage shoes!


Looks Like I Was Right

According to this year's Victoria's Secret fashion show, I was right to ponder the choice between thigh-high boots or sandals wrapping my legs in ribbons -- both were featured! I guess the choice is between ballerina or superhero. ...But isn't that often the daily choice we women face? When we're not the sexy librarian, that is. *wink*

The Dilema Of Free Shoes -- Or, Free Shoes, Anyone?

A Slip Of A Girl has a lovely contest going on now in which you can win a $100 shopping spree at the Lovely Lingerie Company. I love lingerie too, but shoes are my first love! So I'm torn between the ballerina ankle wrap sandals and the pull on leather thigh-high boots... On my budget, either is an impractical splurge!


Suede Keepers

Shop It To Me finders can be keepers with these beautiful Roxanne Keeper Suede Loafer Pumps by Diane von Furstenberg. Now 30% off! Soooo librarian!

Not sure how I feel about these Le Bourget Hoisery Gallieni Marine Tights... I'm thinking of getting them for my grey wool skirt -- but never with so much print! ...Librarians shhh people, and I guess that look is too loud for me too. *wink*

Vintage Shoe Fetish Art

Tied Up In Bondage Hosiery Thoughts

A Slip Of A Girl shows us Bondage Tights, which reminded me of the Oroblu Mode Judith Black Hold-Ups... Like ASOAG, I too wondered about hosiery knit "around" the leg. Will they stay in place? I'm skeptical, especially with a stay-up stocking style (I love my garters and do not trust silicone strips enough to really like them). I'm pretty sure the Wolford tights predate the Oroblu (these bondage tights were part of Wolford's last Fall-Winter collection), so I wonder if Oroblu copied the look in a stocking... And I also wonder if Wolford passed on making "bondage stockings" simply because fall/winter 'tis the season for more practical tights?

A Shoe-In For Those Walks Of Shame

You know what I'm talking about, ladies *wink* These Pan T Boots will save you time running about, trying to find your scattered belongings -- even if it will require you some time to slip them on...

Uber mod early 70s Pan*T* tights and boots in one! Created in the early 70s by a woman who claimed to be tired of her socks slipping down into her boots, these were only available for a limited time. This pair has it's origina tag and fits a size 8.5-9 shoe, S/M tights. Streamlined and chic, heavy enough to be worn as leggings or tights!

Take that, Hermes!

Feet: The Art Of The Beholder

Where did a month go? Obviously, I've just been busy; no need to worry. But I do like it when you miss me! Tonight, after a pedicure, I may just catch up on my posting. If I don't fall asleep with a good book first *wink*

Xs & Os

Fleet Of Foot; Faint Of Heart (Or, OMG I Need These!)

What's shiny and red, has angel wings, and leaves you feeling like a tall Lolita? These platform sandals!

I found the pic in a forum, and I searched the site's name on the image, Japanese Streets; no luck.

Jacco Fashion has these Patent X Strap With Angel Wing Decorated Ankle Strap Wedge Sandal -- and along with red, there's black and pink! I need them all!

...But something about that site makes me wary...

Primarily, it's the fact that this image (below) is, as you can just make out in the dark image with text, from Nitrolicious...

You'd think a maker or retailer would have their own images or better images. They should.

Searching at Nitrolicious offered no help either. Pooh.

So if you know anything, please please please tell me!

Bamboo & Lace -- And A Pretty Face

I love these Bamboo Layers 05 Nude Lace Triple Platform Pumps -- sexy and yet not so over-the-top I can't imagine where I'd wear them. Plus, they're affordable: just $38. In fact, Lu Lu's has a whole category for shoes under $50, for those of us who have to mind our budgets, if not the height of our heels. *wink*

It contains no bleach, caustics, or phosphates, and yet the neutral pH formula easily cleans natural, synthetic and stretch fabrics while protecting elastic fibers -- awesome for cleaning stockings, tights, and other hosiery!
