It's ALL about the shoes

Though I couldn't wear them in public without the dress.

Which, of course, since it's horrendously sunny in Philadelphia again, looks all washed out and I was trying to stay out of the bright light. But you get the point, and more importantly, you can see the shoes.

Right?

Right?

Aren't they fabulous? And best of all, they're comfortable and I can walk in them - even outside, except I hate getting their flowered soles all scuffed up on the sidewalk. These may be carpet shoes only.

Off the shoe topic, how did they sneak a new season of Project Runway up on me? Usually I'm planning my whole evening around the premiere, laying in the snacks, getting the wine ready, and all of a sudden at 3:00 p.m. Thursday, someone mentions the first show is at 9:00! Six hours warning for PR, and part of it spent stuck at work?

On the plus side, it looks like it might be a promising season. I liked the beginning twist, it just shows how evil they are - they got all the designers together, told them their first challenge would involve an item from their own suitcase, and after they sifted through and came out with some cherished piece, they were told to hand it over to the designer on their left, for them to cut up.

Ouch. I know how I'd feel.

Nothing too fabulous came out of the challenge, but still, it's Project Runway, and it's back, and now I can finally pry my darling news junkie off the couch and get the remote off its rotation of MSNBC-CNN-CNBC-Comedy Central so I can watch fashion porn for 90 whole minutes every week!

Oohh love the shoes. You look hot ma'am! About PR. It flew under my radar until I saw tomandlorenzo tweeting about it. By then it was too late, and I have to figure out if I can even get it on any of the few tv stations I get. Otherwise it's the painful youtube!

Those shoes are to die for...and I'm not a shoe person (only because I'm hard to fit and they cause me pain).

You should be able to catch PR on Lifetime Real Women on Saturdays for sure. If you go to their web site: mylifetime.com, I'm sure there's a schedule that will list the multiple showtimes on the various Lifetime channels.
I too thought that this season looks promising. Didn't agree with the auf'ing. Won't say any more. I'm rooting for the "older" designer 'cause I R one (not a designer, but a couple of years older than her). Go Grey Panthers ;-)

So you have a news junkie too? I feel your pain--no wonder you get so much sewing done. :)

Great shoes! I love 'em--the flowers are great and the heel looks flattering and elegant. would you like to share the name of the manufacturer please? I'm looking after wearing multiple pairs of Dankso clogs for a loong time, I'm looking for stylish shoes that I can wear with dresses and skirts.

Wow - what A-M-A-Z-I-N-G shoes! And I haven't seen the latest episode of PR - I was still at work - so I'm looking forward to the rerun!

Beautiful outfit...and perfect shoes!

Holy mackerel, those shoes are H-O-T! They look great with the dress!

PR crept up on me too. I knew it was starting soon but forgot exactly when until I saw it had started to record on my DVR.

Wow, those shoes are over the top great - can't wait to see you walking a Philly cobblestone street in them!
