Your Thoughts? *edited for clarification*


Cute? Or too old-lady? I want to wear them to Tubachristmas with a short skirt and bright red tights. Would it work? Tuba notwithstanding. The heel seems to be reasonable without being too frumpy. I think...

To clarify:
1. I have slightly kooky taste in shoes. My clothes may be pretty staid but I like a goofy shoe. Seriously, I would probably own most of the shoes Pink Studio makes (except for the serious heels). I would sell somebody's grandmother (not mine) for these:
However, this leads us to:

2. I can't buy shoes in stores. There is no trying-on. I wear a 12W. Most brands do not produce shoes that big. Pink Studio certainly does not. Clarks does. They are about the only brand I have found that aren't either totally orthopedic looking or just plain frumpy (I think this may have led to my tastes getting weirder over time).

3. The goal is actually some shoes I can wear when going out in winter. We are not chauffeured to our partying here. We park places and walk other places. Weather is shitty. And I fall down in heels over 3". Sober. So these babies are not gonna happen. I may just have to see if they are frumpy in person or not. Endless.com does have free shipping...

Maybe when they go on sale.

I like them. I think the detailing in all one color is awesome.

I ams still debating Anthropologie's Bouquet-of-Roses heels.

Just say no. But I'm a dude so what the hell would I know?

LOJO said...

I like them.

I think they're cute. Are you able to try them on anywhere locally? That's what I would probably do--that style of shoe is really hit or miss with me.

Kerry, I love those shoes. They are a little too twee for me but that is why I don't buy things from Anthro. For you, I say ADORABLE.

I think I answered everybody else in my addition to the post. Thanks for your opinions, everyone!

Given your constraints and your personal style, I think those shoes are worth trying.

You have also inspired me to go to J.C. Penney tonight to tackle my skirt/pant problems.

I like them! But then I love Clarks. Have you tried Born?

Kerry said...

Hey Anne, where do you find W shoes online? My youngest sister has W feet (I did not know this!) and is lamenting her shoe wardrobe.

The second pair, the grey ones - GET THEM!!! They're gorgeous.

Anne (in Reno) said...

Wende, congrats on the shopping success!

lsaspacey, I believe Born doesn't make a 12. Or I would be all over them.

Kerry, Clarks, Aerosoles and Naturalizer all make wide shoes and you can usually find some of them on Zappos.com or Endless.com. I don't know who makes smaller sizes in a W I just know these three make a 12W. Also if she is a bigger size Barefoot Tess has some different brands that come in bigger sizes and they have some wide widths. If there is a Nordstrom's in her town just send her there. I haven't bought from them online but they used to be the only actual bricks-and-mortar store I could buy shoes in.

thethingsIhateabout, I would buy those in a heartbeat. However, that brand does not make my size. Hence my rant.

I don't like them. I like the color, the style is gross. I don't think they would pair well with a funky outfit like the one you're describing -- they are marmish. Red tights + short skirt = funky.

I love love love the green ones, though.
