Super Sassy Shoes - Part 1, High Heels

Nothing defines your personality better than a set of shoes that shows off the kind of strange / sassy / thinking-outside-of-the-box / unique personality that is you.

Behold, a collection of high heels that strive to set you apart from the "black high heels" crowd of people who wear black in an effort to "blend in". Fashion isn't about being camouflaged, so why should your shoes be so boring they blend into the background?

Can You Tell Everything About A Person From Their Shoes? Don’t Be The Guinea Pig at Work

There are people who buy shoes and then there are shoe people. If you have a special place in your heart—and wallet—for shoes, there’s nothing wrong with that at all. But there are some rules you’ll want to follow for work guidelines and your own personal comfort, not to mention that you don’t want to get into hot water or create the wrong reputation for yourself just because of your footwear when the quality of your work should speak for itself.

You might be buying shoes because they are on sale—those BOGOS (buy one get one free) offers are hard to pass up. On the other hand, you may be a major serial shoe buyer regardless of price, and in this case, oftentimes your shoe selection is likely not puritanical. In either situation, there’s a high likelihood that you have shoes you should never, ever wear to work. The question is, do you know the difference?

Here are some guidelines for those who aren’t entirely in the loop:

Open-toed shoes are generally a no-no: Unless otherwise stated by your boss or workplace manual, wearing shoes that show off your little piggies is a no-no. Of course, if you work in the world of fashion or even perhaps some other more creative industries, this may be okay; that said, chances are, if it isn’t a big deal where you work, you already know that. But for those who don’t know, your first day as a bank teller, physician’s assistant, or receptionist at a law firm are not going to be enhanced by wearing open-toed heels, no matter how much you may have loved wearing them last Saturday night.

The same shoes every single day: It says a lot about a person when they can’t branch out. This includes the world of footwear. It’s probably not expected that you have an Imelda Marcos closet filled with thousands of options, but by having some of the standards covered, you’ll do well. For example, a couple of decent pairs of flats that go with anything, a pair or two of heels you can pair with dresses or wide-legged slacks, and that one pair of stilettos or heeled boots that can carry any outfit over the threshold of a fancy gathering or last minute meeting with the higher-ups or clients doing a drop-in from Hong Kong will work in your favor.

Buckles are for pilgrims: Not for all pilgrims, but for those that came over on the Mayflower, the slight-heeled buckle-topped shoe was for them—not you, and definitely not for the office. Steer clear of any shoe that has a large buckle at front and center of the shoe’s top. It’s fine to have a side buckle, as one might see with a Mary Jane type shoe—as long as it is not a massive accessory to the shoe. The deal with buckles on shoes is functionality: if they actually serve the purpose of putting the shoe on or taking it off, then chances are, it’s fine. In any case, a shoe that has a buckle of more than one square inch in size is probably better worn to the bar where your favorite Ska band is playing, and not at the office.

Common sense: So you have those sweet disco ball mirrored chunky heels Gaga wore in her last video? That’s awesome. Don’t wear them to work unless you own your own clothing design operation. Use common sense to dictate what works at work and what will not. Chances are, if you are sitting on your bed the night before weighing your options, the pair of shoes in question are questionable for a reason, and it’s probably best to stick with safer bets, at least until you know without a shadow of a doubt precisely what is okay with the boss and what will keep you out of trouble—or the rumor mill in the break room.

Why 70s Fashion Sucks!!!

Want to dress like a moronic person with no class? Think 70s fashion!


What we're talking about here is a person so obsessed with the latest fads that they're copying styles from 40 years ago just because accessory stores are selling the junk.

Lets start with that hallmark of retro 70s fashion...


My mother and grandmother wore these glasses (still do...) and that doesn't make them kewl. Far from it. I think they're gawd-awful-ugly. You'd have to have a screw loose to think these look good.

Next on the retro wannabees...


They're just big freaking bracelets, like hoola hoops for your arms. They're not practical, they get in the way, and they are probably more annoying than anything else. They're so big in an effort to make your arms look smaller. So wearing them suggests you have an eating disorder and want to look thinner and thinner. Not cool.

Seriously, Twiggy might have been a late 1960s-1970s supermodel, but that girl needed more meat on her bones.


When you fall flat on your face enough times that you break your nose or chip your teeth maybe you will rethink these fashion rejects from 1970s that may look interesting, but I'd bet a fiver that you will be regretting them 3 months later and never wear them again.

Or maybe 3 days...


This is the only throw-back from the 1970s that we think is actually worth keeping. Its practical. Its stylish. I can see wearing it again and again, years to come. And its easy to find something to match the Tangerine colour (which is hot this year, so claimeth the fashion gods).

The end result? 70s Fashion ranks a F for Failure. It scored some points with the jacket, but the rest is junk.

Want a fashion tip for the future? Think Super Retro, Steampunk, Rolling Stones and Heavy Metal.

Now you may ask why Rolling Stones? Because we think its time to rehash that period. And while we're at it, Mick Jagger will be 68 in July. No offense to the old guy, but he has to kick the bucket sometime and then all the Rolling Stones fans will come out of the woodwork proclaiming their love of the band.

Likewise with Keith Richards. We could start a betting pool as to which one of those two will kick the bucket first.

NOTE: Its important to note that the Rolling Stones influenced male fashion more than female fashion, but lets end with a photo of Paris Hilton to prove a point that its unisex.
