Rock the Pink Pump

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, which means it's time to rock the pink pump.

You'll notice my profile pic on Facebook has been a pair of pink pumps all month.

This also means that it's time to shop for a cause. Plenty of companies offer some really amazing shoes
that benefit some truly great causes, all to help the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.

One of my favorites this year is "Pose" by Milk and Honey Shoes. This black, pony hair mule rocks the pink on the inside, and a chunky 4 inch heel. The best part is that 100% of the proceeds of the sale of the shoe benefit the Karen Dove Cabral Foundation.

The Charles David Virtue pump is still available as well. 20% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. And if you buy it now, you can also get it on sale.

If you keep searching you can find all kinds of shoes. Pink sparkly heels with breast cancer ribbons, black heels with pink bottoms, and anything else you can think of.

Weitzman, Gilt and Boots

Stuart Weitzman and Gilt have teamed up for an exclusive pop-up shop online.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Stuart Weitzman 5050 boot, Gilt.com launched a digital pop-up shop which include iconic and limited edition styles. This over the knee riding style boot has made itself a classic boot and a classic Weitzman shoe. 

This 20 piece Anniversary Collection features the classic colors, as well as designs in an array of unique materials including zebra haircalf, sea crystal snake calfskin, black goosebump nappa and prune woodsnake.  
Since I am obsessed with texture and furry boots, you can guess which ones are making me drool, although basic black is probably the most practical way for me to go. 
As part of the shop, Gilt members can also purchase a Swarovski pave version, custom-crafted with 25,000 crystals hand-set in an elaborate leopard pattern. With leopard, Swarovski sparkles and a Stuart Weitzman boot, this may be the most perfect shoe ever made. 
Prices range from $59…

Cat in Flats?

I now own flats.

Two pair to be precise. One pair of fab Dolce Vita loafers with leopard tassels, and a pair of pointy-toe, studded flats. The most amazing part of these purchases? I intend to wear them. Like all day.

Cat in Heels will soon need to transition to Cat in Flats.

No, I have not had some kid of irreparable foot damage, hurt my knee again, or inexplicably decided to shun my heels forever. It's because I am pregnant...with twins.

You can let that sink in for a moment. I've had 15 weeks to get used to it. That was after the initial shock of it all, which still hasn't fully worn off.

Being pregnant is also the reason I haven't been posting as much. I'm usually a night owl and do most of my writing and posting at night. Instead I've been eating dinner and falling asleep on the couch, leaving my husband sitting and wondering what the hell to do with his evening since he can't talk to his wife.

Seriously, these babies have been sucking the life out of …

Halloween Heels

Halloween is right around the corner, which means it's a great excuse to wear some amazing clothes, and I don't mean costumes.

While Halloween used to be all about costumes, now it's graduated to other things. There are those lame t-shirts that flip up and show everyone your belly and a picture of a werewolf face. There's the shirts or dresses that have a skeleton on them...and then there's the shoes. Which are the clothes made for Halloween that don't suck.

Charlotte Olympia has released an entire Halloween collection (because she has a collection for every holiday), and it's awesome. She has added fangs to her classic kitty loafers, put bats all over the Dolly island platform to create the Midnight Dolly, has a pair of pumpkin loafers, a pumpkin purse, bat clutch, and the absolutely amazing purple Nocturnal sandal with an island platform, ankle strap and a bat on the toe.

More shoes should have bats. I would seriously wear these all year round.

Plus Size Calves?

It's fall and fall means it's time for boots. Specifically tall boots. That amazing shoe that goes with just about anything and juts screams fall fashion.

If you're me it's also the shoe that causes the most aggravation because apparently having developed calf muscles (ie: not supermodel legs) means you have a hell of a time finding boots.

I've discussed my man calves quite a few times on this blog, so unless you're a new reader, you know
all about this.

Today Refinery29 posted a list of boots for people with wide calves, which means I'm probably not the only person in the world that has this problem. They probably have a frustrated writer or editor somewhere who runs too much or has a giant Germanic build like I do.

The crazy thing about the list is that half of the shoes were from plus size stores like Lane Bryant and Torrid (and appallingly heel-less), and the other half are apparently tucked away on websites off in the ethers of the internet, and don&#…
