These are the cherry sandals I mentioned in my blog the other day. I finally resorted to just taking a picture of them on my feet. Okay, so this was after a couple glasses of wine when that seemed like a good idea ;-). But there they are. Very cute. And probably might look good with the "Will Work 4 Shoes" T-shirt, too.
This is all of us all gussied up for the Harlequin party, which was held this year at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas. Me on the right, then Katherine Garbera who writes for Blaze and Kensington, then Julia Justiss, who writes historicals and seated next to me at the Literacy signing every year (Jump, Justiss) and had this AMAZING period dress on this year, then someone whose name I forgot (and darn it, I knew I would...I'm really sorry, person I forgot), then Lenora Worth, who writes for both Steeple Hill and Harlequin Next and has a shoe collection that trumps mine. Sigh. At least she gives me something to aspire to.
Kathy is the whole reason I started the shoe thing in the first place. She had the same pair as me one year and we started a shoe war from there on out. This year was close, because she lives in Dallas, and was able to bring along way more pairs than me because she drove (hometown advantage!). She did have some really cute pairs.
Those are hers, second pair in, with the little white button on the side. Mine are the middle ones (those black lace ones that were in the blog earlier) and then there's Lenora's shoes, and then the person whose name I forgot, but who had AWESOME shoes. And Julia, on the far left.
Women and shoes. In a group. It can get vicious ;-) Is it any wonder I just finished reading The Shoe Queen? And I really loved it, BTW. It was a great book. Very different, and very good.
