dorothy would be jealous

I have been on an eternal search for the perfect red shoe. I've purchased 2 different pair since the search began many years ago (ok, 3 if you count the ones I bought online for $10 and never once wore - a sweet find at the local Goodwill for one very lucky lady). Each cute in its own right but not the perfect red shoe I've been looking for.

I have looked near and far. Stores. Internet. Catalogs. And yet I've come up short. Yesterday I discovered LIKE.com and did a red shoe search on there. It brought hundreds of choices and I found a couple that I really like...


This shoe is cute and Kenneth Cole is one of my favs but I'm not convinced I love the heel.





I like how understated and simple this shoe is. I don't like the $300+ price for understated and simple no matter who's name is on the label.






I LOVE this shoe but Zappos doesn't have my size and I haven't been successful in finding it for sale anywhere else. If I do find it, I will take a chance and buy it. I'm sorry My Heart, I know this goes against the rules of no more buying shoes online since I have to return 75% of them for various reasons. This one is worth the chance.


And then there is this one.
The jewel of my most recent red shoe search (and yes, I know it's not red). See, this is how I get into trouble.
This one also comes at a pretty price but doesn't it look so worth it!?

I too love shoes but that last pair (non red) is ugly!! I really like the first pair heel and all!! Happy red shoe searching!!

Sorry Sweetie, but I have to agree with anonymous above... the bottom shoe is really ugly... and do love the Kenneth Cole red shoe... heal and all. You know I have always worn a bit of heel... flats are not my thing... again... I agree with anonymous!!!!
Sending love across the ocean!

Um...the last pair are cute. They'd go with lots too. I have to vote for the first red pair. I think the heal is kicky!
