Spring has Sprung

Spring is just around the corner, and I have to say, I can not wait! It has been a long and cold winter. One other thing I can't wait be employed! I just accepted an internship for the spring/summer so I will be a temporary part of the workforce. I have shared before that I actually like dressing up for work and I like the idea of wearing a suit every now and then. But mostly I just miss the pay checks that come along with employment. So since I will be going back to work in a few short weeks, here is what my ideal Spring work outfit would look like.

What would you do?

So I just bought these wedges at DSW.

I had 3 gift/reward/birthday certificates that I needed to use ASAP and I am going to an outdoor wedding back home this weekend where wedges would be perfect. These instantly stood out to me, and I love stand out shoes. The problem is, I don't think I have anything to wear with them. Here is basically what I am working with.

Something like this:

Something like this:

And, something like this:

Yes, I have other dresses, but either their color or their shape have completely disqualified them from consideration.

I think the khaki Safari dress would be perfect with the shoes, but probably not for the wedding. The black dress might also work well, except that its black and the shoes have brown in them. Part of me finds that so wrong. And the navy dress probably wont work at all. So, I guess if I want to wear these shoes, I am going to have to buy a new dress. Not what I want to do. Or I could wear my original dress (not even in the above group) and wear heels that will sink into the grass. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

The shoes were made for...driving?

If you had $6500 and needed a new vehicle, would this be on your list?

According to Splash:
Drivers can really put their foot down driving this electric “shoe car”. The car was designed by a major Chinese shoe-making company, which invited workers to take it for a spin. The shoe car is three meters long and is made from 200ft of of bull leather. It has a top speed of 30km/h and can carry two people. The battery-powered car can run for up to 400km on one charge. A spokesman for the Ao Kang company in Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province, said the car cost around $6,500 (USD) to make. The company is planning to make 40 shoe cars for its large chain stores around China.

Who was your best dressed?

Oscar Host, Anne Hathaway's Brian Atwood pumps

So, unlike some other award shows, shoes rarely get to see the light of day at the Oscars. Long, floor length ball gowns, are typical thus the gorgeous pumps we all know are underneath never get shown. However there were one pair of shoes that did stand out to me during the show, and its probably because she wasn't wearing a gown with them.

About a third of the way through the show, Anne Hathaway took the stage for a humorous solo to poke fun at Hugh Jackman. She was wearing a form-fitting tux and some super sparkly pumps.

Anne Hathaway hosting 2011 Oscars in Swarovski Crystal Brian Atwood pumps

Well, the fine ladies over at FabSugar have identified those fabulous shoes to be Swarovski Crystal covered Brian Atwood pumps. And before you ask, no you can't find them anywhere. They are custom made for Anne herself. But maybe you could take your own Atwoods and crystals and make your very own pair....yeah, probably not.

Cute from Faraway but Faraway from Cute

So I saw this picture of Eva Mendes at the Independent Spirit Awards and I immidieatly noticed her shoes! Here is the thumbnail I saw first:

All I really see is the light tourquise shoes on her tan skin, and I think it's going to be good. Then I get a little closer. 
Still not bad, but I could do without the extra strap thing around her ankle. Then I get way up close.

Ugh, so disappointing! They had so much potential! They compliment her dress well and the color looks good against her skin, but somehow up close they just lose all appeal. 

Update: These shoes are all over the place!
