hoping you'll see what your love means to me

song of the day: 'open arms' by journey
isn't this song totally fabulous?! really, the 80s was a wealth of good tunes. i know the indie music scene is all the rage right now, but for real, give me a good 80s ballad and i'll be the happiest girl on the block.

i was complaining about my crap feet yesterday. you see, i was wearing these adorable little sneakers that i do truly love and feel great in and what not, but then i saw calivintage's blog. sigh. she has the amazing jessica simpson dany platforms and i admittedly got jealous. not because she has something i want, but because she obviously has feet that can accommodate those gorgeous shoes. see i have really bad feet. i was lucky enough to inherit bunions from my grandmother (woohoo) and running, while giving me ridiculously toned legs, has produced some pretty gnarly calluses, not to mention the tan lines (yeah i know i complain about them a lot). oh and i have super high arches so most slip on boots don't fit and certain strappy shoes won't buckle across them. so it was with sadness that i looked at my cute little quasi-orthopedic comfort sneakers. sigh. i would consider giving up a kidney to have pretty feet. and those shoes.

oooo i remember the days of runner's feet! the worst is the dry callous on the big toe and the blisters on the arches .... amanda, you're supposed to be making me want to run, not reminding me of the bad memories! ;)

i do love the colors in that dress!

You look very pretty in that dress!!! I have a checkered purple dress, you inspired me to wear it!

Oh lady you are rocking the dress and lace-ups! You look great!

I've had a wishful eye on your etsy shop for awhile but this is the first time I've been to your blog for some reason! And I will most definitely be back :)

If its any consolation, I'd give a kidney for your legs! Also, I think your shoes are super cute.

That dress is the cutest little thing!! I love it! And I love me some calivintage, but I found shoes like that to be only worn on special occasions. One of the things I love about your posts are your cute and wearable outfits, and I find that you've given me more inspiration than some of the eye candy blogs out there.. Just sayin' ;)
