Ooh La La!

No sewing going on here, I’m afraid. I am just swamped with work! But, I thought I’d give you all a little bit of eye candy today. :-) My darling son just returned from a trip to Newport Beach and Las Vegas. I asked him to bring me a souvenir from Paris to which he responded that he had already bought me something much, much better at the Bellagio. Talk about an understatement! Check these out:



Are they not absolutely gorgeous? Oh, how I love a slingback! I am in shock that my 19 year old would spend his own hard-earned money to buy me such a wonderfully extravagant gift! Good heavens, I was expecting a t-shirt! I will wear these until they are nothing more than a thread. The Manolo, he would approve, yes?

    I must repeat the above comments. Your son and the shoes are both treasures. What a thoughtful gift! I’d almost be afraid to wear them. And, Lori’s right, your son inherited your good taste.

    Sooooo elegant! Congratulations “Mom;” I have a four-year old son and am always conscious of the fact that I am responsible for teaching him to be a gentleman, to present himself well, and to treat people nicely. “You” did a great job!!

    Rats! I forgot to teach my son to buy me expensive shoes. Too late for me, but obviously not for you. What a wonderful gift and what a wonderful son. Enjoy!

  22. Holy Moly – I’m speechless!

  23. Wow! I’m so jealous! I have to teach my boys to be so considerate of their mom!

    Enjoy your wonderful shoes, darling. You’ll be fabulous!

  24. Wow! How very nice of him. What a great looking pair of shoes! I am envious.

  25. Quite a fantastic souvenir indeed! Not only did he think of you, he knew what size to get. What a great son.

    And 19 year old boys the world over are cursing his name as their ASTONISHED mothers show them your post and say “See what this amazing boy bought for HIS mother!” Those shoes are incredible!

    Do you give parenting lessons?

    What an incredible risk he took as well. He needed to scout out your exact shoe size and do a little research so he would select the right size.Second the style. Looks like he aced it with his selection.

    What an incredibly thoughtful thing for him to think of let alone execute.

    they are AMAZING!!!

  30. I’m so jealous. Hopefully when I have kids I can skip the whole terrible 2 phase and just go straight to the buy-momma-lots-of-couture phase. =) j/k I’m sure you’ll smile everytime you put these on.
