Shoesday

You know your shoes are frugly when...
a. two of your sisters nominate you for the frugly footwear festival
b. the style has an expiration date of 1992
c. even the pilgrim's don't want them back
Kristen, it is time to purge the ugly shoes. Recognizing the problem is the first step to recovery. She dedicated an entire post to these shoes. The extra effort makes Kristen a deserving recipient of new shoe love. I have a few ideas and a little Zappos gift card to help find the right pair. Leave your e-mail address to collect your prize.

The patterned socks are a nice touch.
Brigitta was a close runner-up with these slipper/shoes. She claims to only wear them around the house or for carpool. Save them for the house or better yet, toss them my friend. You are way too cute for these.

Thanks for playing.

Diane, you kill me, "even the pilgrims don't want them back"

I hade shoes similar to both of these...you have helped me to purge.

Kristen said...

YAY! I WON, I WON!!!

Yeah, I'm wondering what other fashion mishaps I have that my sisters are conspiring against. If they will give me gift cards I will happily discard and move forward into the current trends.

Yay, again! And THANK YOU!!!

My email is french@cableone.net

I got so busy around here that I didn't get to play along. Danggit! I think there are some doc martens hiding in my closet that might have won.

Annemarie said...

A worthy winner!

I missed playing too!

However, if I don't wear something in a year, I give it away- so I don't think I have ugly shoes lurking in my closet.

I am sure there are people that would beg to differ, but we just won't listen to them. :)

Brigitta said...

Now looking at them I agree, I shouldn't even wear them when I am picking up the carpool. Those things may be a boiled wool piece of heaven of warmth and coziness, but they are some serious UGLY.

The pilgrams shoes are beyond ugly.

Tristan said...

Yeah those are pretty bad!!!

Robin said...

Yay! Now, I think you need to make some suggestions for Kristen.

Paige said...

Diane you have done the world a favor. Will someone please go to to Kristen's house to make sure they get thrown in the dumpster? No DI for those shoes. Someone else might think they are OK to wear.

so hilarious!

Ilene said...

DANG! I couldn't find my camera yesterday to post my ugly shoes.

But I don't know if they are any worse than the winner's own pair.

Andie said...

Oh! Too funny! I might have to play along myself some day with a giveaway. You are the best.

Melissa said...

Hooray for Kristen! They were pretty bad, and for such a lovely sister in law she deserves better.

Can't wait to see your suggestions? hint hint... (While you are at it, how does a girl who lives where it is cold pull off tights/ stockings in the winter... I always feel like I look about 8 years old. Please advise.)

Annemarie said...

Now could you please do a public service announcement on the importance of not wearing white nylons?!?

Emily said...

Hooray! I agree, I want to see what tips you have for Kristen's new pair of shoes. They need to be something cute and comfortable, because it sounds like she wears these old nasty ones for work days when she's on her feet all day.

I'm so glad Kristen won! ;-)
