Won Free Shoesday last week via DSW's facebook. As part of my commitment to work out consistently, I gave up the card to buy sensible workout shoes instead of another pair of heels or boots...

I picked the Nike Air Visi Sleek Running shoe, since it was not only on sale, well rated, and had teal in the design, it also reminded me of Portal in the styling. This shoe is not an experiment! Nerding over. Mostly.

Oh, and I also got the Shoe Lovers Tote, as it was on super sale and super cute. I'd missed out by scant hours on getting the free shirt; sold out, DAMN! But this was way nicer than expected! Snaps and zippered pockets and lining and everything! I was expecting another generic shopping tote bag like you can get at grocery stores. Totally way better than that. Also, $5. WIN.

Three years ago, the first post was made. I started on a lark to see if I could keep up with something for a month, as well as to see if I really could match outfits with shoes for a month straight. I figured, do a month of posts for shoes, and maybe move on to something else. It kinda got a mind of it's own. Three years later, and I'm just over halfway through my collection.

I'll be the first to admit, I haven't really been the best at keeping to the schedule. Camera death, moving three times, and all kinds of other unforeseen things came up. 66 posts in three years isn't the best run, but 66 pairs of shoes IS. And despite the massive backlog of shoes that still haven't been posted yet along with the awesome influx of shoes from my DSW wins and Secret Santa, I have plenty of ammunition left.

So here's to 66 now, and 66 more...and maybe 66 more after that.....and so on.

Today we have these delightful Kafayat peep toe booties in black. Yes, those are sequins covering the entire shoe, and yes, those are some 4" spike heels. (They also have a frighteningly good grip on the soles.
