My Silver Anniversary

At the end of this month I will celebrate my 25th birthday. This year, I’ve decided to treat my quarter-century birthday like a wedding anniversary and invest in something silver. Silver shoes, that is. Below are a few options I’ve been mulling over. Let me know which ones you love/hate, because every shoe gal needs to make an informed decision.

Pelle Moda Carlin Slingback, Nordstrom, $140

So this one isn’t silver, but I’m not so sure I can wait til my 50th birthday to buy a pair.

I’m Feeling Randi, Baby! Yeah!

I love when a shoe makes you feel romantic, nostalgic even. When I saw the Randi pump by L.A.M.B. I immediately transported myself into some sort of classic movie extravaganza full of wistful characters like Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman (Austin Powers didn’t make an appearance, but I just couldn’t help myself with the headline).

This heel’s elegant peep toe and stitched-down ruffles pay tribute to eras past, while the
4 1/2-inch heel keeps things trendy. Sadly, the mysterious, brooding gentleman is sold separately.
Available at Nordstrom.

Athletic freedom

Perhaps it’s their rock hard abs, cut arms, or wind-swept hair that allows some celebrities to look effortlessly chic strolling out of the gym (re: Cameron Diaz, Madonna) as a paparazzi snaps a shot. It could also be that cool confidence that comes with knowing they just put in hours with a trainer and aren’t suffering through a red carpet moment in toe-pinching stilettos.
I try to achieve that athletic look when I’m out running errands or living a not-so-glam moment in a Northwest downpour. Just the other day, I was rushing to meet a friend for lunch in Portland and a hard rain started out of no where. I dashed across the parking lot in these shoes, feeling as unbeatable as Achilles.
While I wouldn’t recommend them for real workouts at the gym (not enough support), I love my Puma La Bambas available at Nordstrom for $74.95. They are so lightweight, it almost feels like you aren’t wearing any shoes at all. They could easily take on the Nike Free in the comfort arena but bring a lot more style. Of course, I’m still working on achieving the buff bod to match.
