Red Suede Boots

GWYNETH PALTROW'S SKINNIES "I'm forever on the hunt for the perfect distressed jeans. Who makes the ones Gwyneth is wearing?" – Ali The star's pair, $325 R13 jeans, fits all the requirements of worn-in denim: whiskers in the right places, a cool, washed-out blue shade and fading at the knees. We're sold.
Although, the feature in this photo is the jeans..the shoes attracted my attention the most. I'd love to own a pair but then I would wonder if I can pull it off. Maybe, if I can find them in wholesale yard signs - in the sale itself, I'll buy the just to say I own a pair of red boots. :)

Not a Pair

You Are Flat Sandals
Casual yet flirty
You look great in a simple top and jeans
Your look is approachable and cute!
This is funny because I don't really own a pair of flat sandals. I am so used to wearing heels that if I wear flats, I feel like falling backwards. Most of my shoes have a bit of heels even at least half an inch. My heels are not really that high that would need dowel pins incase I trip and broke them.

Best Director

I have not seen Argo but from what I read, it is an excellent movie. It has got good reviews and I was really surpised on Friday AM (Oz time) that BA didn't get nominated in the Oscars as Best Director. At least he won in the Critics Choice. That should mean something.
Take that, Academy! Hours after Ben Affleck was snubbed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which did not give him a Best Director nomination for his film Argo, he won in the same category at Thursday night's 18th Annual Critics Choice Movie Awards in Santa Monica. "I'd like to thank the Academy," joked Affleck, 40, while on stage to collect his hardware. "I'm kidding, I'm kidding! This is the one that counts." Affleck, who attended the show without wife Jennifer Garner, went on to thank his family by saying, "My daughter wrote my name on my hand for luck. I don't know how that works, but I guess it worked," he said. "I want to thank my kids and I want to thank my wife, without whom I would not be anywhere, much less here.",,20658248_20663880,00.html
Since, this is an off-topic in my blog but I really like his family.. might as well throw in some more. Have you ever wandered around interior decorating stores. I have not that I know of so I am curious if there is one around my area.

From AM to PM

From my collection of shoes, I have basic work shoes. And from those, I have my favourite pair - comfy yet stylish (give my feet really good cuddles). They're my favourite so much so that the front sole of one is almost worn-out. I have been hunting for replacement but no luck and I was just planning to have them repaired. In one of my casual trip to the mall, I found what I've been looking for.
They have the most soft-soled and padded work shoes I have seen so far. They're comparable to utility knives for use and purpose. Just happy that I actually found a pair that I like and fit my feet and purpose. Happy days!
