Shoot!--lame photographer that I am, I managed to cut of my feet in most of my pictures. Usually I wouldn't mention it (because why draw attention to such an amateur mistake) but the shoes that I was wearing were really, really cute! Really!
I stumbled upon them at Amazon (one of my favorite places to find good deals on shoes) and fell in love. The print reminds me of a Liberty print. J Crew has a few Liberty print shoes this season, but apparently I'm not drinking enough of the Crewlade lately to want to pay what they're asking. In fact, I've never really seen the allure with J Crew heels. Overpriced, uncomfortable, and too high of a heel for practical wear. Bah.
Anyway, these BC Footwear shoes are no where near the price range of the J Crew ones. Fine with me though. The heel is a lot lower too (only 2"). Since I stand on my feet for 6+ hours a day lecturing that's more in my comfort zone as well. Materials are all man-made, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with a printed fabric shoe if it's a cute one. I normally wear an 8.5 in most brands, and that's what I took in this shoe. Very comfortable. No pinching, rubbing. Plenty of room in the toe box, and a surprising amount of padding and cushioning in the footbed.
They were such a steal, I justified to myself I could snag the black floral colorway as well:
Overkill on printed floral pumps? Maybe. But I have such a hard time finding cute, comfy heels that are 2" or under, that when I do find an illusive pair, I usually by it in multiples. Since I was able to find both colorways for under $40, I figured it wasn't offending the 'Sensible Shopping gods' too much.
