Fashion Friday

Today is the launch of the Frugly Fall Footwear Festival Freebie.
Did you watch Oprah this week? She did a shoe and handbag makeover show. It was fabulous.
I feel it is my duty to offer my services as the footwear fashion police. So here we go. It's easy, take a picture of your frugly (fr-freaking ugly) footwear. That's right I want to see your most frumpalicious shoes. The ones that make your feet look like a baked potato and give you cankles. Those with a private blog need not apply because how can I share the frugly? I'm still a bit sad that the person who won the traveling shoes contest has a private blog. I want to follow the fun. Oh well. It doesn't matter what size you are. There will be a fabulous prize. You know you want it. Send me your links by midnight Monday November 9th so I can pick a fashion loser I mean winner.

Here is a new formula too.
graphic tee + jeans + boots + boyfriend jacket I am enjoying this color combo of caramel, black and gray. It is a new one for me. I have noticed that much of my wardrobe is currently gray. Perhaps the reason for my fascination with having gray hair...

ANOTHER fabulous outfit!!

Okay, I am not lying, here...I recently got rid of my ugly shoes because I wanted to be more fabulous...or at least try to be more fabulous because of your fabulous example. I will have to see if any of the really hideous stuff was spared...

Robin said...

You hair does NOT look gray! Hardly. Even the pictures of it upclose don't really look gray,

I will see what kind of ugly I can find in my closet.

I'm so glad I don't get to play on this one!

wv: nodesti - boring fashion that covers?

Jennie said...

cute cute cute boots! It's all about the boots for me this year! I myself just got some cute brown boots to tuck my skinny jeans into.
Um, my fake uggs make my feet look like a baked potato, but I still like them. Tyson hates, Uggs. Boo to him.

Annemarie said...

Oooh, this is going to be gooooood.

I may have gotten rid of my fruglies, but I'll check.

Ilene said...

This is fun. I wonder if I still have a few really bad pair lying around.

Tristan said...

Love the boots! I love putting neutrals together. I think it looks really great!

I will have to take a picture of my frugly shoes for you ;) *GASP* I'm ashamed to admit I have a pair.

ok, I was just telling Robie I want to try the whole boots OVER the jeans thing - i don't have any skinny jeans, though, do you have to wear them with skinny jeans? plus my calves are kind of big, so most boots are really tight on me - so do you have to buy a special pair of boots that is big enough to go over your jeans? sad that I have so many questions..

Kristen said...

Okay, you know your shoes are bad when your sister sends you an email saying that you need to post pictures of your ugly shoes on someone's website so you can win a contest. Thanks Robin.

My shoes are so ugly that I did an entire post on them, inspired by the desire to win this contest. You can check it out here:

I hope I win!

You have great shoes and boots by the way!

Caramel, black, and gray...I love it!

Where's the gray in your hair? I don't see it! Now mine, that's a different story altogether!

Robin said...

Vote for Kristen!

We were just talking about how much black and grey are everywhere right now. LOVE the term "nodesty". That is TOTALLY ME! You guys crack me up!

Brigitta said...

Well Gray is the new black this season, so you are in good company. Gray is everywhere. Love the color combo's that you put together.
I have a pair of slipper/shoes that I will submit. I usually only wear them in the house or doing the carpool. I wouldn't wear them anywhere else, but they are warm and comfy.

Diane,
I was just informed by my single colleagues, that the super skinny jeans (the ones that look like they're painted on) are the very best for wearing with boots. I think you should try it with your awesome boots and belt! And top it off with a boyfriend jacket like you did--you'll be so Audrey Hepburn!

I haven't seen the other shoes, but Kristen's shoes are NASTY. I hope she wins. I hope she wins so that I don't ever have to see those nasty shoes again.

I think you have great, thick, straight hair. I think you should cute a little more bangs, or swoop them from farther over on the forehead, so they frame your face more.

You are adorable. Can I go shopping with you?

I wish that I could wear such fashionable boots...never could, not even in my skinny days! I have monster calves! When I was younger, it was because I ran...now it's because I don't:)

Christie said...

The shoe winner isn't private - just her profile is. Her blog is:

And, um, I actually buy NOTHING but fabulous shoes. I try to copy you exactly so I will have to dig deep and the find the old ugly ones.

Okay, how pretentious does that make me sound?

Paige said...

I don't have any ugly shoes either except my Uggs. But my sister Celia has enough to make up for both of us. Can I just take a picture of her entire shoe closet? Oh wait, I have my wedding shoes. They are ugly pumps from 1995.

Love it !!! You look hot :)
