Walk a Mile

I confess: I can hardly walk in these shoes. I bought them when I was going through a “fat foot phase” at the beginning of the summer. My feet have since, mercifully, deflated, but now the shoes are too big. I continue to wear them, though. They’ve become a pattern mixing staple.

I can see why you cant stop wearing them, they are too gorgeous.
For some reason I struggle with printed shoes. I can throw any other patterns together, but the floral pumps get worn like once a year.

Love your zebra dress and that orange cuff. drools.

Stick some insoles in them! I have a few pairs like that, and insoles can really make a difference. They're such pretty shoes!

that vest looks awesome with that dress and belt.

I second Sheila's suggestion. I use insoles a lot to help with too large shoes.
Love zebra! You are the guru of pattern mixing.

I agree whit SheWho - you rule the pattern mixing universe. And I love what you did with bracelets + watch. Will copy : >

Can't lie, I keep some shoes if they're too big just because I love them. Some times, it's worth to have to walk much slower than normal, lol. Love the entire outfit. You're inspiring me to try pattern mixing... Cross my fingers I won't fall on my face with it, lol.

Gorgeous shoes, pity they're too big. I always find insoles and heel spacers to work well in shoes that are too loose =)

Heel grips can be lifesavers. I like the grey rubber ones because they fill in space of slightly too big shoes, and have the added bonus of keeping the shoe on your foot. Love that vest layered with that dress.

Oh...well...if you can't wear those shoes...I'd be more than glad to take them off your hands. Just sayin'.

I love the look of your lace vest over the animal print. I am absolutely copying this look soon. Thanks for the inspiration!

Being pregnant created fat shoes out of my old regular shoes. I totally stretched some of my shoes out! Oh well, I had to get new ones. Darn.

Well I said I was going to steal this look and I did. :) Here is my version: http://www.tminus-tplus.com/2011/09/copycat-black-and-white-and-lace.html

Thanks, Kasmira!
