H’ween here I come

October 16th, 2009

I did it.  I made the transition from flip-flops to shoes - and feeling rather Halloweenishy.  Huge thanks to Calamity Kim for showing the cutest shoes EVER on her flickr.  Kim kindly led me and my plastic money down the cute shoe path.  The T.U.K. Women’s Cat Mary Jane can be found here.  I have a foot issue - so I took my seam ripper and removed the straps.  Tadah… my Meowy Janes!
Meowy Janes
These shoes should come with a warning.  You will be stopped by the nicest people where ever you go with Meowy Janes on your feet - your shoes will be admired and inquired about.  Not for the shy or anti-social.  This concludes the warning.

    I don’t know if you ‘do’ the award thing - tough luck if you don’t as you have one waiting for you on my blog :)

  35. The fabulous Sarah allegedly said:

    I have these in red! I never thought about taking off the strap…what a good idea! I got them about 6-7 years ago from Hot Topic on clearance.

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
