I LOVE SHOES.... as most big girls do. No matter how many extra pounds I may gain or lose I can still wear my shoes, and they can make the most boring outfit look extra special.

So, I was purusing the world wide web and came across these beauties...
OUCH.... These suckers look painful! and then these....
Very unique... I doubt you will run into another girl at the party wearing these bad boys!
Now this last pair...
Scary... looks like some type of torture device... don't piss the girl off who's wearing these shoes,
"Super Freak, She's Super Freaky"
Now I like a good shoe that is different and stands out, but I don't quite know what else to say about these.
Just curious to know what your reaction to these shoes are?
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" or the blind.
BTW, I don't know the price, but can imagine they are all priced at a couple hundred, at least.
Would you go this far to be unique? and How long do you think you could walk in these?
Thanks for checking me out...

Happy Holidays... Where am I Going with All of This?...

I know it has been a while, and I am about 2 weeks late but...


I have been reading so many blogs lately, (I think I have an addiction) and everyone is talking about the dreaded New Years Resolutions.....
I usually don't make any b/c I feel that they are destined to FAIL!
but I decided to make just a couple.
So, I will share them with all my blog/youtube friends,
hoping that this will help me stay accountable!
I am the worst with this. I will try to put off anything if I can, and it
really puts me in a deep rutt. So that is #1

I love this website.... basically for those who are unfamiliar, you make a pledge for 2/4/or 6 months that you will not buy any NEW clothes. You will Reuse/Recycle/Reduce by refashioning old clothes that you have or have bought second hand from the thrift shop/yard sale/estate sale/etc. OR you can just make your own clothes from scratch.

You are allowed to buy socks/shoes/underwear/bras/etc. brand new during this time AND supplies or material to make new stuff. The whole idea is to reduce our waste....

I am really excited about this. I have been lurking on this site for a few months now and there are some really talented people on there. I have gotten so many ideas, I cant wait to get started.

I have taken the 2 month pledge, just to get my feet wet and see how it goes. I don't really have much of a choice right now anyways, Im BROKE!

This is a refashioned sweatshirt.... I think it is really cute!

So, I will keep posting to let you know about the stuff I make/re-fashion.

BTW, I tried to give only handmade gifts for Christmas this year, and it went really good. Unfortunately, I forgot to take the "after" pics b4 I gave them away. I really wanted to show them off... I will see what I can do to get some pics of the stuff "in use"

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season... and I hope to post about some really cool Valentines Day gifts very soon!
