Oh You Pretty Things

I still prefer a shelf full of books and I am rather doggedly a "bag" girl, but these shoe shots from the Selby are wooing me rather passionately. There is something quite delectable about a truly wonderful shoe. The red sequin ones like Dorothy's in Oz (the film, not the book) are an absolute dream.

Those red sequined pumps! So incredibly pretty...

Darrah said...

I usually sell the shoes I don't wear a lot. However, if I kept all my shoes from the past few years, I'd have a lot too!

Mel said...

I've always dreamed of owning a pair of red shoes like Dorothy's! Sigh...if only I had shelves like that full of shoes...or shelves like that for the shoes I have already.

Diane said...

all these shoes just make me drool...and make me sad that i have no room for insane amounts of shoes like this in my tiny apartment :(

congrats on your sketch! so cute!
p.s. where did you go to school in PA? i'm originally from PA (and actually planning on moving back in the very near future...)

Harriet said...

Wow! I too am a bag girl rather than a shoe girl, but these pics would tempt even the strongest bag girl to waver!

Phyllis said...

love the photos -- ::sigh:: i have such a long wish list of shoes that will most likely remain just a list, haha

Ashley said...

I just want to swim in those shoes!!!

S.Elisabeth said...

Shoessss I am definitely a shoe girl, one hundred percent. Though hmm I do have to agree a shelf full of books vs a shelf full of shoes... I feel as though books would win. (PS I've begun reading Empire Falls, have you heard of it?)
And ha the shoes in the book are white/silver aren't they?

Fashion Cappuccino said...

If only I have racks and racks of shoes like that!! I'll be one happy girl! xoxoxxo

Oh my, Oh my! I have been dying for new shoes lately and this post made my heart skip a beat! Shoes are all I want for Christmas! This just inspired me to go shopping!

Lexie said...

i'm definitely a shoe girl. i could get by on one or two bags ... but i cant seem to control my shoe habit!

fashionforwriters said...

oh my gosh, those shoes are enviable, but they are also so scary! I'm always afraid I'll twist my ankle in super high platforms even though I covet them at the same time. I should probably learn some coordination before I wear high heels..

Valencia Lia said...

I would love love to have such a huge shoe collecton !! Wowwww,and those red sequined heels looks like the one I got recently:)

I think I'll go add ribbon bow shoe clips to it as well heeeee

Mae @ thereafterish. said...

There is something to be said of a closet full of shoes. I am more of a shoe girl, but I have a few pairs of Go Tos. I would get afraid of having too many shoes, for fear of wasting money, because all I ever do is go to work and maybe once in awhile to dinner. Never to a place that would be appropriate for wonderful walls of shoes to use...

But a girl can dream. I wouldn't mind having a 10th of that many shoes, while still enjoying my wall of books.

Becca Jane said...

that collection of shoes has me green with envy. How I love the selby

jaunty magpie said...

OK, so I've said I'm a coat fiend. I'm a shoe fiend as well. But I'm working on trying to keep that under control. It's so hard sometimes, especially when you see beauties like the ones shown here! I get the shopping bug and force myself to stay home, look at beautiful blogs like yours, and feel inspiration for my own closet again.
