And now for something completely different : shoes. Besides that coat (which I've decided not to get, I'm going to try to make a new coat instead) the only thing I've been thinking about purchase wise are these shoes from Beatrice Valenzuela. This blue is amazing. I know they wouldn't be practical for the New England winter, but they do have a rubber sole unlike most of my other shoes. They're also a little on sale now at Creatures of Comfort but they blue pair they've photographed looks a bit more on the purple side, but maybe it's just my monitor. Decisions, decisions.

I have these and love them to the moon and back (note: they are really like slippers, ie, no support at all). I think they are the same shoe and the color is between the two images - not quite that blue but not as purple as the CC either.

Can you make coats for the rest of us too? ; ) I have been hunting forever and can't seem to find warm + not overly girly. Le sigh.

Heather - Oh gosh, now I really want them if they are so comfy! Thanks for the info! That's good to know about the color too. I already have another pair of blue shoes I don't wear as much as I should so that's the main reason I'm hesitating, but these ones are totally different and so cool.

Erica - I'm torn about ordering the 7's because these days I'm a 7.5 or maybe even an 8 - but these looks like they'd stretch a bit and it says to size down if you are in between.

They *definitely* stretch!

I've been eyeing her shoes forever now! I want the bootie style. Eventually. Sigh..

I have been wanting a pair of her shoes for months now. I vow to check them out in person, if I can, when I'm back in LA for the holidays!!
