    I saw a Paul and Joe cat bag on ASOS yesterday!

    My shoes arrived today and I took pictures for you. I’m sending the ones with the fringe back since I don’t really like them in real life, but I looooove the ones that I’m keeping. Babycake wanted a lil’ sniff of them too, lol!

    Hi Ellery,

    OMG — *love*. I love how they are so awesomely high, wheeee! I dig the platforms because they give you so much height without necessarily adding to the heel height. The shape is very pretty, too. How are they to walk in? Are they comfy?

    Can I just say that the picture with Babycake cracked me up? Tabs gets the same look when I show him accessories. :)

    So, I kinda liked the fringed ones, especially the peep toe action. But with the cold weather coming ’round soon, yah, the first pair is the better choice.

  3. Ellery says:

    I know, right?! They’re 5 inches, and the fringed ones are 4 inches. The heel on the fringed ones sits kind of wonky though, so they aren’t as easy to walk in as the others. I’ve already been walking up and down the hall doing my model strut, lol!

    They’re pretty comfy, but I have to take them to the shoe place to stretch the sides and top since I have fat feet height wise (I don’t know how to describe it, I’m fine length and width wise but the arch of my foot is high or something, I don’t know, it’s confusing).

    At first I was just going to get the peep toe ones but I’m glad I got both to make the decision. Aww at Tabs. Bless! Babycake ended up edging away from them after that picture though, hehe.

    Hi Ellery,

    I have to give you props for rocking the 5-inch heels. Those days are over for me, LOL. Four is about my max!

    Do you ever use any tricks to make high heels more comfy? I’m all about band aids, mole skin (this stuff is the SH*T) and arch supports, LOL.

    It’s so funny that cats get confused so easily. For some reason Tabs doesn’t understand the concept of pants! He always wants to swat at my pant legs. He doesn’t understand dancing either… he just stares at me like I’m all crazy when I dance around the house, ha ha ha. Hey, did that cat with the big eyes come to your window this morning? I think Babycake needs a friend!

  6. Karen says:

    Hi Yadiq,

    RIGHT? CCL solidarity!

  7. Karen too says:

    I foresee a Tabs printed bag in an upcoming Sundays with Tabs post, lol!

  8. Ellery says:

    Aha, I’ve never walked in anything under 5, Paris Hilton once said that the higher they are, the smaller your feet look, so I went for the biggest pair I could get without them being stripper heels for my first pair.

    I actually don’t find them uncomfortable at all, but if I wear slingbacks I have to use a little rubber grip because they dig in and hurt! I was actually trying to remember the name of the mole skin you used earlier today because I remember you saying how good it was, I’m gonna look for it when I go shopping on Monday.

    Awww, he sounds really lively. Babycake always attacks my necklaces, and if I have my extensions in she grabs onto those and starts fighting with them! I haven’t seen the gray cat for a while, and it’s funny that you mention her needing a friend, I was thinking the same thing today and my dad agreed to take me to the cat shelter next week! I’m so excited!!! (Part of me is hoping there’s two little sisters, because then my dad would feel mean just taking one, lol!)

    I wish P & J had put the cat heads on the lipstick tubes too! I would love to get this as a gift, but I don’t think I’d buy it for myself ’cause I never really like those random face color compact things! I’d totes buy a cat head lippie a la cart!

  10. Rowena says:

    I am a cat lover and I did buy nearly the whole Xmas collection! Pop over to my blog to see!!! But I didn’t get my hands on the smaller kitty pouch though cos its not out in the UK yet :)
