TODAY: Tall Remix

I am an avid watcher of the Today Show. I love their fashion segments. They are short, sweet and pack a fashion punch of information. Although I have yet to see a tall segment on the show (please note: I will come on at ANY time to show the world some TallSWAG:), they give great information for trends, deals and steals.

Here is a recent segment on spring shoe trends with Ann Curry and tall beauty Hoda Kotb:

Flats in a Flash

We all have those days when our feet are screaming and we need a cute flat in a flash. Voila! The Corso Como Festive from Exceptional Footprints is the perfect remedy. They are super compact, cute flats that come in a travel bag so you can take them where ever you go. Your little emergency flat in a glass:)

One point of advice...order your regular size.  I was so excited that the Festive came in sizes 11 to 14 that I got a 13 instead of my regular 12. Why Alicia? SMH...they run true to size so make sure that you order the size that you usually wear (my 12's are on the way YIPEEE!).

Check out the Festive from Exceptional Footprints now...hurry, they are going fast!


Open Season

I have a confession to make.  Only my first 2 toes are painted today.  I was not prepared.  I woke up to a BEAUTIFUL day and there was no mistake about it...I could officially wear open toed shoes!  However my toenails were definitely not official.  Don't get it twisted, no crispy feet here, but they were 100% not painted.  There was no way I was missing the opportunity to break out of the closed toe jail my feet have been in during these abnormally long winter months but I didn't have time to paint them so I painted the ones that mattered and called it a day.  My 2 toes couldn't be happier:)

Make your toes happy.  Celebrate the start of the Open Toe season with a fresh pair!

Happy Monday

Footwear can save a terrible day.  For example, this morning I woke up and couldn't believe it was already Monday.  I was legitimately mad that I had to get out of bed, get ready and drag myself to the office.  I thought about all of the things I could be doing (mainly sleep) and was extremely pissed at the world for dealing me the "you have to be responsible and go to work" card. 

But then...an amazing excited feeling came over me and I jumped up out of bed...ran to the closet (actually I just opened it because I have a small apartment and am basically in my closet when I get out of bed) and found the ONLY thing that could turn my frown upside-down...a brand spankin new pair of shoes! Da da na na! I was up and out of the apartment as fast as I could shower, dress and slip the shoes on.

Moral of the story: save your new shoes for Monday's.  They are a bright spot in a terribly dark day.

Speaking of bright spots...check out these colorful new arrivals from BarefootTess.com:
