Because I don't wanna hear a flip nor a flop past October 1st...

I'm working on a piece (to be posted later this evening) that will both explain the reasons for and provide a colorful, bountiful selection of for-Fall commuting shoes.

Because if you thought there was nothing worse than seeing a woman in a suit showing off her French pedi in a pair of thick-strapped, thick-foamed Reefs, try a woman in a suit showing off her French pedi in a pair of thick-strapped, thick-foamed Reefs whose toes are tight and blue from morning chill.

Yeah, not so good.

Until then, enjoy a few of the little (anticipatory) pleasures that have been putting a smile on my face as of late...

"Le Disko" by Shiny Toy Guns

"Last One Standing" (premieres on the Discovery Channel on Oct. 4th)

Lust, Caution (rated NC-17, opens in limited release on Sept. 28th)

I am so excited about Lust, Caution! I love everything Ang Lee does!

You are so odd, J. "Last one standing"? Really?

Isn't "Lust, Caution" the film with tons of inappropriate (and unorthodox) sex scenes? Count me in!

Great song, it's in heavy rotation on my running mix.

New guilty TV pleasure: Gossip Girl.

I totally support tonights post, I need very badly some tips on commuting shoes...i am tall and it hurts me to walk on high heels. I also want to know about t-straps!! Thanks!!

Can I get your opinion on my "walk to work" shoes. I personally love them because they are super tennis shoe like comfy, but still look like a ballet flat and the elastic keeps the shoe on my foot if I have to run to catch the metro.

I wear these in the black/black

I know exactly what you mean about the cold toes situation. Women's feet get all puffy, too. Gross. You wouldn't wear a t-shirt in low 50 degree temperatures, so why a pair of flip flops? So illogical.

I am staunchly anti-flip flop at all times of the year. Flats, people, c'mon, or if you must bare your toes, purchase sandals not made of rubber and plastic.

nafq - do you mean these?

Ick. Sorry.

Looking forward to the post! While conceptually I love the idea of heels all day every day, in reality my feet are shouting their dissent after the mile-long walk to the metro. I also hate wearing flats with too-long pants (though appropriately hemmed to go with heels once I've arrived at the office). What's a girl to do?

k-

no the link she posted takes you to a different shoe... called the catia.

Indeed--I'm now walking at least four miles a day and have to dress up for student teaching. I am dying to find so comfy shoes that look nice and stand up to Boston weather until I put on my heels in the classroom.

That movie looks very interesting... Love Le Disko! If you like music like that, you should download the Liberation Dance Party mix to your iPod. That's how I found that song last Spring.

Despite making people cringe, I wear my flipflops until I can no longer feel my toes. Not kidding. I'm a flipflop fanatic (only wear Havaianas, and have over 20 pairs in literally every color), so in my defense, I'm at least matching them with my outfit...

I am cringing at the thought of matchy-matchy flip flops.

Maxie is correct, my shoe is the Catia, not the shoe that you poo-poo'd.

K said...

I'm going to have to poo-poo the Catia, too. Ick.
