Finding the perfect black pump is like finding the perfect black dress. Great in theory, but difficult in practice. My perfect black pump would have a 1/2 inch platform, smooth leather, a 3 inch heel, an almond toe and, at most, a $200-300 price tag. I don’t want any annoying spikes or studs. I have had my fill of them. Enough is enough. Christian Louboutin has a great basic pump, as does Gucci and Valentino but those are simply out of my price range.
These Platswoons by Stuart Weitzman are gorgeous, I own them in Red Quasar. They are a little high in the heel at 4 inches but a 1/2 inch platform makes it 3.5 and at $300 they are a little high in my price range. In truth, I have these in my shopping cart. I may end up purchasing them later on this month. We’ll see.
The Charles David Piza on sale at $175 are a good choice, but they don’t have the platform needed for stability AND much time in a 4 inch heel is paralyzing.
Some of our readers have posted their shoes and it is wonderful to see what shapes you are attracted to.
So tell, what do your perfect black pumps look like?
Business took me to Boston a few weeks ago, and I had dinner with a friend who lives in the area. She said the best investment she ever made was a pair of good rain boots. While we were in Boston it rained. Can you believe it.
Then the sun came out for the weekend and everything was right with the world. Boston’s residents love their sunshine, parks and weekends. People and dogs were everywhere. It was fun seeing such a wonderful city in both rain and sunshine.
Today’s Spot the Shoe is a rain boot that will keep your feet dry while you walk through the slush. Then you can say mean things about me because you know I will probably be wearing flip flops. Probably not, I am just saying that to brag about the weather.
Sorel’s Sorellington rain boot.
$80 at Amazon only size 5 and 11

If you have been holding out for a designer shoe to go on sale, now may be the time to purchase it. Currently luxury department stores are hosting a designer sale. Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, and Nordstrom all have their designer items on sale up to 40% off. The average discount is about 30% off. Here are a few of my favorites.
$1189. at Nordstroms 40% off regular price.
I have seen about 20 minutes of one Twilight movie. The one where she can’t decide between the vampire and the werewolf.
Just between you and me, the werewolves seemed to be lots more fun than that morose vampire. They got to run around the forest, jump off cliffs into a lake, ran around without their shirts, and were better looking.
So in the last Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn, the girl marries the morose vampire. Anyways, I have seen several articles about the wedding outfit. I gotta tell ya, the shoes are gorgeous.
These are available in white, black and cranberry.
Blahnik hit a home run with the blue satin shoes Carrie Bradshaw wore in SATC. I expect these to be just as popular.

In an effort to return to some of our original goals for ShoeBlog, I went back into some of our archives and found something we did and somehow drifted away from it. It is called Spot the Shoe Monday. We spot a shoe on sale and offer a variety of outlets for the shoe.
I have a difficult time paying for a shoe whose price tag is the same as my dishwasher, so today’s shoe is a lower price point. Stuart Weitzman’s Bowright.
Black $262 on Footsnotes.com
Cafe Quasar and Black at $186 on Nordstrom.com
Red at $261 on Saksfifthavenue.com but only 7.5 and 8.5
