Vacation Time

ShoesViews, originally uploaded by Theresa Di Moan.

I am enjoying my long-awaited holiday near the Mediterranean sea. Here I'm enjoying a laid back pair of sneakers in yummy chocolate and strawberry ice cream colours, and pink slipper-shaped anklet socks.

Spring Break Up

Moccasine Boots 05, originally uploaded by Theresa Di Moan.

My original intention for this blog was to celebrate the kinky fun of shoes. Little did I know what this spring would hold for me. I never thought spring could be so sad, it’s always been a happy season for me. I never thouhg I would have a break-up in spring. It’s such a beautiful, happy season and I am always in good along with the tweeting horny birds and the erotic display of flowers. Even my birthday is in the spring, so you will always happy at this time of year. But not this time around, because this is what happened. Me and my beloved and most dear foot-fetishist boyfriend are broken up. My heart is broken up. And so I am afraid that I will be using this blog as a shoulder to cry on and not just as a happy shoe and fashion show off as I intended.
It will be really sad to not be able to share my shoe fetish with him anymore (unless we get together again, which is not improbable, as we still love each other very much). I am going to need this blog even more than ever to ease the pain…

Shoes: Hush Puppies' Genie boots - suede moccasin style

Getting Dirty

Wellies 09-03-2007, originally uploaded by Theresa Di Moan.

I should make Fridays my getting dirty day. The one time a week I always get dirty when I visit the horse barn. What a great way to end the week, a departure from the mundane urban life. A breath of fresh air and getting in touch with real things, including living, breathing animals, and murky puddles that reflect the skies.
Besides, riding pants are just THE BEST!

Let Them Eat Cake

Clip from Sofia Coppola's movie, Marie Antoinette.
Shoes are a necessity, but if you have too may pairs, you'll be blamed for overindulgence.
You may not be be sent to the guillotine like Marie Antoinette or exiled like Imelda Marcus, but beware of jealousy poisoning your life.

If you haven't watched Marie Antoinette, you really should. Not only is it fun to watch and refreshingly original in the way it is edited and the use of out-of-period music (I must say, I am so fed-up with long, supposedly "accurate" period pieces that are stretched for hours in hopes of getting an Oscar). It might give you a different perspective on life. Marie Antoinette lived a life so different than what we know. Rich or poor, peasant or queen, cake-eater or weight-watcher: women seem to be born to suffering and it takes different shapes and forms. I suppose men are just as fortunate, even though not being one I can't tell you for sure...

Ribbed Nylons

Ribbed Nylons 02, originally uploaded by Theresa Di Moan.

These are my my favourite socks ever. The ribbed soles make for a perfect snuggly sensation when walking or resting. The help my feet to get a grip on slippery steep stillettos. But the best part is how sleek they look and how smooth they feel on the skin. I love this photo, and if it wasn't for the little woodchip (?) that I am not sure was even there when the photo was taken, it would be a perfect portrait of these socks. Almost.
