"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

I'm dreaming of a shoe-filled Christmas!

Bonsoir babes! Man this week feels like it is going fast! I can't believe the weekend is almost here again. I have to admit I have many countdowns going on right now that keep me perpetually excited :) 5 days until the best little brother comes home, 9 days until my weekend at VT with best friends, 8 days until I see the cutsie baby again (and her fabulous daddy and fashionista mommy), and of course 8 days until my favorite holiday!! 

As a major fan of Thanksgiving I am not one to skip right over the holiday to get to Christmas and I have strict rules for myself concerning when I can start celebrating the tinsel season: no decorating, christmas music or holiday shopping until at least the day after Thanksgiving! But my dears, I can't always manage to keep myself from dreaming about the treats I hope to find underneath that perfectly dressed tree! What can I say, I am a kid at heart :) And let me tell you loves, this year my wish list seems to be all about an accessory near and dear to all of us: the shoe. Ah yes, the ever important vessel that carries us from point a to point b with grace, style and a little bounce in our step. Instead of sugarplums dancing in my head, I have visions of Louboutins, Manolos and Choos waltzing around and they are just dying to be shared with you! 
Oh red soles, how I covet you. I just think every fashionista deserves to see a pair of these babies shining back at her from the closet every morning. To me, they are kind of like Audrey Hepburn: the epitome of glamour. Confession time: I have actually been thinking about making this a reality in my life sometime in the next year! It would have to be a BIG reward, so I don't know when the timing will be right, but even just thinking about the possibility is enough to make me bubble over with happiness! I think I would go with the classic black pump as it is a staple in any girl's wardrobe that will forever be fashionable. 

Carrie Bradshaw, see what you have done to me! You have me drooling over this totally decadent royal specimen of a shoe! Even the name is perfection and enough to make me swoon: Something Blue. I would totally get married in this beauty and make it my something blue, wouldn't you? :)
And to bring myself back down to earth (although not really if I was standing in this towering shoe!), another shoe lust that is more attainable, and actually a Christmas possibility. I have been lusting over this knockout that has been gracing us with its presence all over the blogosphere on the dainty feet of fabulous bloggers everywhere! You know how I can never say no to a sky high heel, and make it chunky and I'm sold! I can't decide between black and taupe, leather or suede though. I tend to lean towards black, because it goes with more. But 90% of my shoe collection is black so perhaps I should branch out? Oh decisions, decisions. 
I rarely find myself a fan of anything connected to Jessica Simpson, but for these heels I make an exception! Yet another shoe that took the blogosphere by storm this year. Perhaps I am just too easily influenced by you lovely ladies? No, never! This shoe never fails to make the legs of its owner appear to go on for miles, and who wouldn't be in favor of that? Again, should I ask dear Santa for the caramel or black version? 

Loves, what shoe lusts are you currently enduring? Will you cave? What items have found their way to the top of your holiday wish list?
