Shoe Shine #18

Shoe Shine is on!
Get your kicks by showing your kicks!
Happy New Year! 

The first pair of shoes I'm sharing for 2015 are also the shoes I wore as the clock struck midnight.
I love a metallic shoe! They go with anything, match gold and silver, look pretty and are a wardrobe essential. When I was in my early 20s, my best friend Janet had a pair of pointy-toed bronze-y silvery flats and she wore them with everything. I thought they were the height of effortless style.

I've had these shoes for a few years - they were first worn here in December 2010, and were purchased at She She Shoes on a $40 sale (they were regular $174.95). They're Jeffrey Campbell.
The bows, the cute heel (not too high!), the easy on/off zipper...that lovely metallic leather!

Unfortunately, I am a little hard on my shoes...
A few scrapes, dings and the shiny is wearing off in places. I should probably take a look around for metallic polish! However, I don't mind too much - they still have lots of wear in them! 

And what about you, my friends? Show us the shoes that have graced your feet so far this year!

  1. I love metallic too! Will have to find a post with my bronze cowboy boots to link up, xox.

  2. Great shoes. Metallic sheen is always appealing and the retro design of these is terrific. I don't think I've ever seen regular shoes with a size-zipper; booties yes, regular shoes, no.

  3. I am so terrible about leaving comments Sheila. I have been following you for a couple years and have commented only a few times but LOVE your posts! I finally got to participate in Shoe Shine because I actually did a post dedicated to a pair of wedges. Happy New Year!


  4. You have a shoe collection to live for! Adore your metallic kicks! Thanks for hosting, Sheila. Happy New Year!

  5. Happy New Year, Sheila! What a splendid pair of shoes! Of all metallic hues, bronze is my favorite for sure, and I have a pair as well. I agree with you - they go with pretty much everything. I need to dig mine out and start demonstrating this maximalistic statement. :) In the meanwhile, I am joining in with a pair of rusty brown leather boots by Pikolinos which are very comfy and also go with almost everything in my closet. Thank you for the link-up! xxx

    ps I just realized that I don't have a badge for your Shoe Shine on my blog. I'll add it!

  6. Footwear! Hurrah!
    Your shoes look suspiciously like Fluevogs and I was surprised to see they are Jeffrey Campbell. The metallic sheen is gorgeous.

  7. I love those metallic shoes. They look like they would be comfortable and stylish. I need to find some like that.


  8. Oh how could I miss out on this!! :) You have a shoe collection to die for ( especially those damn Fluevogs which I cant get hold of in Europe) ;) so its only appropriate you hosting a shoe shine. I will have to participate next time. :) I do love your link up parties, such good fun! :)

  9. I just so happened to wear my Jeffrey Campbells today. :) Hope you are doing well - I have missed Blogger Land.
