19 Pink Shoes: How to Kick Valentine’s Day Ass

Published in: Just For Fun, Product Reviews

Dear Cupid,

Happy Valentine’s Day, yo! I know you’re super busy today spreading love and all, but could I trouble you for a small favor? Would you please stop shooting me with those love arrows?? Each one makes me fall in love with a new pair of pink shoes!


First, I fell for these casual cuties…

Converse – All Star Core HI ($42)

Sugar Origami Batik Floral ($73.95)

Vans – Classic Slip-On ($44.95)

Dr. Martens 1460 W – Series ($113.95)

Then, my heart melted for strappy sandals…

Ralph Lauren – Amelie ($107.06)

Fornarina – Violet ($129.56)

Manolo Blahnik – Snake Print Sandal ($675)

Charles by Charles David – Pandora ($103.95)

But you couldn’t stop there, could you? You had to take it a *step* further, forcing me to fall in love with pink pumps!

Nine West – Luxious ($92.95)

Miss Sixty – Callista ($179.95)

Betsey Johnson – Cayden ($190)

BCBGirls – Sandy ($99.95)

BCBGirls – Iggy ($98.95)

Zinc – Missy ($92.95)

Emilio Pucci – 783997 ($593.95)

Manolo Blahnik – Satin d’Orsay ($655)

Miu Miu Deco Patent Platform ($695)

Betsey Johnson – Clovis ($180)

Christian Louboutin – Covered Platform Peep-Toe ($760)

Dude, seriously. Stop toying with my heart! Point your love arrows someplace else. Might I suggest targeting a VH-1 reality TV dating show mansion like the Flavor of Love or Rock of Love abodes? There are plenty o’ people looking for love, you cherubic little bastard. Go wreak havoc with someone else’s heart!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    I love the first two, I actually have to buy new chucks, I totally abused mine….

  2. Lea says:

    Us gals should send link to this blog to our valentine, *hint* *hint* to them. I’ll take Nine West – Luxious ($92.95) over flowers and box of chocs! You are the great devil’s advocate Karen! Happy Love Day! xx

  3. Karen says:

    Hi Vanessa,

    Chucks are so classic! I need a new pair too. Mine are totally run down.

    Here’s a cute pink Chucks story for you: I have a friend who has a young daughter who wanted a pair of pink Chucks. He bought her a pair, but she kept insisting that her dad get a pair too (because they were so cool). So he ended up buying a pair for himself, and now when they go out and about they wear their matching pink shoes, LOL!

  4. Karen says:

    LOL, Lea! I actually sent this to El Hub but he refuses to buy me shoes. The reason why is because I told him once that in my culture (I’m Filipino) there’s an old superstition that you should never give people shoes as a gift because after you do it, the relationship gets ruined. If you’re going to do it, then the other person has to give you something in exchange so that the relationship stays intact – even it’s a penny, you’re covered. Now, I’m not really a superstitious person but in college one of my old roomies gave me a pair of shoes, and I never gave her anything in exchange, so shortly after that our friendship went to sh*t. Yeah, I’m guessing the real reason was because we were just two really different people, but you never know…

  5. Amanda says:

    I love the Chucks and Sugar, but man oh man both Manolos are H-O-T. so are the louboutins. (sigh). perhaps some day I can spend *that* much on shoes…..

  6. Karen says:

    Girrrl, those Manolos are super HOT! (You’re talking about the pink ones with the feathers, yah?) When I saw them I almost fell out my chair, seriously.

  7. Amanda says:

    BOTH manolos! the feathers *and* snakeskin-i just love animal print shoes.

  8. Karen says:

    I know, me too! I’m a sucker for the snakeskin. 🙂

    I don’t own a pair of Manolos but would like to think that I’m destined to be in a pair someday, somehow, somewhere.

  9. Mrs. Lynne says:

    I love my chucks! They’re still tied the same way they were when I first got them. I hate tying shoes, hah. And I LOVE vans! But girl, let’s talk Manolo! Those are so cute with the black feathers! Sure, I have $655 to spend on them – O_O!

  10. Mrs. Lynne says:

    Oh yah. Happy V-day ma! Sending love your way 🙂 Now get your ass packing for some ono grinds this weekend!! Eat a plate for me please.

  11. Karen says:

    Hi Mrs. Lynne,

    I know, right? $655 equals a LOT of Lipglass, fo’ sho.

    But it’s fun to dream. 🙂 I don’t really have any place to wear them but they’d sure be nice…

  12. Karen says:

    Girlfriend, Happy V-Day! Oh god, I can’t keep up with Hawaiians at the buffet. It’s too much…

  13. 2dressedup says:

    Be still my heart!! Thanks for the great shoe pix! I love my hubby but those Louboutin pink peep-toe platforms get my heart to pumping like crazy. Realistically, though, I might check out those BCBGirls Sandy with that beautiful cutwork. Pair them with a colorful skirt and I’d wear those all summer. Happy V-day to ya.

  14. Breezy says:

    Oh my god Karen!! I’m blaming you if I spend my financial aid on dozens of these shoes!!! I was just gonna take a quick look at your site while I’m in my physiology lecture and look at me now!! Totally got sucked in. oh well, Thanks for the purty pictures!!

  15. nancy says:

    hey there karen!

    i’m loving the betsey johnsons and bcbgs. i think the converses are $42, though…i saw the $24 and went WHOA! i’m getting me a pair of those…hehe oh well.

  16. Holly says:

    oh WOW those Louboutins are quite simply beautiful!!
    I have to have them immediately! I would probably never ever wear an outfit that would go with baby pink skyscrapers but they are a piece of art!!!

  17. Karen says:

    Hi 2dressedup,

    Happy V-Day to you too! Yeah, seeing the Louboutin pair gave me a similar bodily reaction. I almost had to grab my asthma inhaler. 🙂

  18. Karen says:

    My bad, Breezy! Not only am I your makeup pusher, I’m your shoe pusher now 🙂

    Every girl needs a pair of pink shoes, you can’t deny the inevitable…

  19. Karen says:

    Oh! Thank you Nancy! I can type pretty fast but the numbers always mess me up (I was absent the day they taught them in typing class in high school, seriously). Happy Valentine’s Day!

  20. Karen says:

    Hi Holly,

    Aren’t they super pretty? I’d rather have those then a box of chocolates any day!

  21. Glosslizard says:

    Oh man, I’m in lust with the pink snakeskin Manolos! Le Sigh!

  22. Karen says:

    Girl, you should rock those shoes to playground! You’d be the most styling mommy there.

  23. Megan says:

    Seriously I can’t wait for Spring and some strappy pink sandals or pink peep toes…:-( It’s been so nasty here all week. 🙁

  24. Kelly says:

    I’m going to be dreaming of those Manolo sandals tonight. So hot… and so much more than I’d be willing to pay. I’ve yet to spend more than $250 on shoes and I don’t see myself going over that threshold anytime soon. Unless I’ve got the winning lotto ticket in my purse.


  25. Apple Diva says:

    Happy V-Day, I love the shoes. Pink is a great color!!

  26. Davina says:

    you rock, a pink shoe post?!? yes yes! i’d love every pair of these, but the last four were a-mazing! i have no idea what i’d ever wear with those pink louboutin heels, but i’d make it work somehow. 🙂
    thanks for this, you totally brightened my day!

  27. Julie says:

    With every scroll down the page, I let out an ‘OMG’ Those heels are seriously SEXY!

    Happy Valentine’s Day, beautiful 🙂


  28. zoe says:

    God i want the louboutins, why to i look so rediculous in heels? Its not fair. Im 6 foot(183cm) and most of my friends are shorter than me, french girls and GUYS are shorties

  29. Glosslizard says:

    Yeah, except that high heels are aways tough in the sand! 😉

  30. tania_nia says:

    Karen I about passed out here in the library when I saw those pink Doc Marten’s. Seriously I need to find me some of those!

  31. Mrs. Lynne says:

    I totally would. To save myself the worry, I’ll just look good so all the kids spend the night at my house 😉 “Stacy’s mom.. has got it going on!” LOLOOLOLOL.

  32. Karen says:

    Hi Mrs. Lynne,

    Oh totally! You would rock the role of hottie mom, girlfriend… 😉

  33. Karen says:

    Hi Tania_nia,

    LOL, those shoes are truly worth a big ole swoon in the library. 🙂 You should totally rock those, perhaps with some cute black and pink laces, yah? 🙂

  34. Karen says:


    True, true. And spikey heels also have that bad habit of sinking into playground grass, sigh!

  35. Karen says:

    Hi Zoe,

    That’s so hot that you’re so tall…I am a mere 5′1, and in my dreams those hot sky-high pumps would make me the height I feel like I should be!

  36. Karen says:

    Hi Julie 🙂

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you too, dear! Hope your weekend is off to a good start. Got any exciting plans for the weekend?

  37. Karen says:

    Hi Davina,

    You are welcome, girl!

    I’m crushing hard on those pink satin Manolos and the Miu Miu platforms… LE SIGH!

  38. Karen says:

    Hi Apple Diva,

    Happy V-Day to ya too, my dear! Hope you and your sweetie had a good one. 🙂

  39. Karen says:

    Hi Kelly,

    Girl, I feel the same way. I hope to win some big money during this trip. I saw a Jimmy Choo store and I know that’ll be one of the stops I’d make first. 🙂

  40. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    It’s never too early for spring sandals. I rock mine in my living room, or when I’m sitting at the computer writing, LOL.

    I hope the weather gets better. Here in Vegas it’s clear, sunny, windy and COLD! Brrrrr!
