First, an unsolicited public service announcement, which comes on the heels of watching and bawling over the season premiere of “Undercover Boss.” FYI: that show is redonk good. It is also ridiculously emotional, and the tears just fly out of my eyes when I watch it. It seems like every single employee has a BEYOND sad personal story, and you just wanna hug and kiss them and make everything alright. But then, you realize you can’t, because you don’t have $10,000 left on your money tree to pluck and Fed-Ex (← not a sponsor) to the most deserving low-level employee on the show. But then, you feel better about it, because the freaking BOSS OF THE COMPANY IS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF THAT FOR YOU. Because somehow, nice people have risen to power in some establishments, and they want to give back.
So, because “Undercover Boss” touches me on a level no other reality show ever has, I have a quick public service announcement to deliver, before we move along to vanity. ;)
Is there someone in your life – friend, family, coworker, whatever – who’s really wonderful/does a bang-up job/is deeply generous/is persevering during a tough time, and could use a little pick-me-up? Consider telling that person how great s/he is, or how impressed you are with him/her. It’s amazing how much that can impact a person’s day/week/life.
I’ll stop patronizing you now. On to the embellishments we go!

Today is all about ya feets. Specifically, what you wear to encase them. That was a very long way of getting around to saying I’m talking about shoes today. DUH, it’s “Tuesday Shoesday” (I ALMOST HASHTAGGED THAT), and occasionally I like to contribute my two cents to the festivities, when I think I’ve found something phenomenal. And I totes have, in these shoe clips.
Ornate shoes are a hugely popular trend in wedding fashion and style these days. Typically they manifest in gorgeous, sleek pumps or peep toes, with some sort of ruffle, rose bud or other gathered material embellishment. But not everyone can afford the real thing.
So many options, people. SO MANY OPTIONS.
These shoe clips get a major thumbs up from me. And not a Megan Fox stubby thumbs up, a real, human-size thumbs up.

By the way, that title up there? Yeah, I was just kidding. You’re beautiful and you don’t need embellishments on your feetsies to make it so (even though they’re AWESOME).
Here’s my love song to you, by proxy…
So, what do you think of these shoe clips? Would you wear them as an alternative to purchasing a hella expensive pair of Loubouts? Or are you Loubout-faithful? Chime in below. :)
