Do I really need another pair of shoes?
But years from now when I look back on my life I want to be able to say that drag queens and David Lee Roth circa 1984 (the Jump era) would have approved of my footwear.
There will come a day when my arches will fall and I’ll only be able to comfortably wear lunch lady flats and sandals (sigh…), but until that day, as long as I can, I will always choose the funnest shoes for every occasion (well, most of the time).
Like these teal Franco Sarto Farley Wedges I picked up at DSW a while back.
Now that it’s warming up and I don’t have to wear socks every day, these have pretty much been the only pair of shoes I’ve wanted on my feet!
They’re comfy and easy to style, like with skinny or wide-leg jeans, dresses or shorts, and I think the cross design on the front, and the matte metal buckle, gives these flower-power cork wedges just the right amount of cool city girl vibe.
I love ‘em so much that I picked up another pair in nude to replace the Unisa sandals I wore into the ground last summer… That pair all but fell apart (BOO!).
These look pretty high because of the 4-inch wedge heel, but because there’s also a 1.5-inch platform, they feel more like a 2.5-inch heel on my feet.
You might not be comfortable in them if you strictly wear flats 24/7, but if you do wear heels at least sometimes, these are a very comfy pair!
I like the nude pair because it’s practical and goes with everything, but whenever I wear that teal pair, I see a lot of fashionistas checking out my feet.
Definitely show-stopper shoes.

So, the big news, last weekend Tabs paid a visit to the vet for his yearly physical.
Poor guy hates riding in the car, and he meowed in his cat carrier the entire time. El Hub and I tried to soothe him on the 20-minute drive, but I’m sure he was like, “Stop this car immediately, and let me out!”
He got a clean bill of health, and the vet even called him a “happy cat.”
When we got back home, Tabs got treats, a new toy, a diamond-studded collar and extra lovin’ for his troubles.
If you’re looking for a cat vet in the Marin County area, I can’t recommend the Mill Valley Cat Clinic enough. The staff and doctors really do seem to love cats, and their prices are affordable.
Oh, and the waiting room is like a cat lady jamboree! This time I met three new cats.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Another Monday down. Good job. How was your day?
