Yesterday I received the exact same question from two completely different people at completely different times. "It's spring, but can I still wear boots?" My first question back was, "what are you planning on wearing them with?" Followed with, "during what occasion?" The weather has been awfully nice and makes me want to pull out my opened toe sandals, one problem however, my toes aren't quite ready for spring. I still have boot-wearin' feet! I told both women that I feel it is currently okay to continue wearing your boots with pants so that only the foot and heel of the boot is shown. No wearing them with tights/leggings or skirts or dresses! April is upon us and we'll start getting into the heart of spring very soon. Having said that, you don't have much longer to wear your boots.... Get to walkin'!

A couple of months ago I posted about a pair of pumps I saw on a soap opera I view from time-to-time that I had to have. They were absolutely fabulous and unlike any shoe I've seen - gold squared toe, bedazzled buckle, very tall block heel. I went on a considerable searching mission - the soap opera's website, major shoe websites, shoe and department stores, etc. and no luck. I found pairs that looked very similar, but not quite what I was looking for. There is this pair shown below I found at Zappos. They are awfully cute and come close - squared toe, light in color although not quite gold, but they do bestow a gold buckle. The title leads one to believe I have settled, but I do love these shoes and they come closest to what I'm actually searching for. And on a positive note the difference with these and the bedazzled pair is that I can even wear these to the office.... A very significant plus.

American Idol reveled the final twelve singers this week. This is a huge deal because this is the group that will go on the American Idol tour once this season's show is over. Everyone is talking about the shockers - Sabrina Sloan leaving and Sanjaya Malakar staying. I was not surprised that Sanjaya made the top 12 because if you can remember after the performances for week 1 Ryan Seacrest alerted the audience that Sanjaya was the top 4th vote-getter. Past performance does not guarantee future results, but it is a huge indicator of what's to come. I personally feel sorry for the kid, but there is always one contestant labeled as the "outcast" every year - guess it has to be him. Sabrina's departure on the other hand I was very surprised with. She is gorgeous, has personality and not to mention a great voice, and last time I checked this is a singing competition. Well I'm not sure it matters anyhow because 11 contestants are singing for the right to second place after the likes of Melinda Doolittle.
