Daily Shoe-topia: Aldo wedges

Aldo "Milius" wedges in natural. Available at Zappos.com.

It’s a done deal – I am going to ALDO this week and buying these.  It took me a while to get on board with the wedges trend, but I can’t argue with these.  They’re gorgeous, casual yet chic.  They will be mine, oh yes, they will be mine.

I think Rachel Maddow got whiplash during this clip. It makes my head spin too.

And I’m doing it again… I’m writing about politics.  The last time I did that was a few months ago when Rick Santorum somehow became a viable contender in the race to be the Republican party presidential nominee.  It was a very scary few months.  I am thankful for the Daily Show and Colbert Report for helping me laugh through it.  Thank goodness that’s over, and he can crawl back in his hole where apparently the Crusades are still going on.

Rachel Maddow. I'm sure she's heard this before, but this lady has balls. I wonder if she is paid as much as Chris Matthews, Sean Hannity, David Gregory, and the rest of her male counterparts.

But on a more serious note… how do conversations like this still occur in 2012??   Watch Rachel Maddow destroy GOP strategist Alex Castellanos on Meet The Press on the subject of male-female inequality in the work force.  First, he interrupts her.  Then, he says that men get paid more because they work more hours and because there are more men in the higher paying fields.  He makes it sound like it’s our fault… that women CHOSE the lower paying jobs for all these years.  Even still, in these fields that are traditionally male dominated, women in the exact same position are being paid less than their male counterparts.

Kudos to Rachel for keeping her cool, even after he was completely condescending and patronizing to her. I thought he was going to pat her on the cheek and call her “cute” next.  It’s only a matter of time, Rachel.  Within the last year, women now outnumber men on college campuses, particularly in the fields that Castellanos spoke of in the clip.  If the Republicans think they are going to win this election by focusing on women’s rights and inequality, they are even more delusional than the time they thought Sarah Palin would make a good vice president.

Daily Shoe-topia: Pink sparkly heels by Betsey Johnson

Betsey Johnson "Glitzee" heels. Available at Zappos.com

All right, I think it’s only fitting that my first Shoe-topia for 2012 is… Betsey!  The holidays are over, the weather is cold, and it seems like I am not the only one saying “Good riddance!” to 2011.   I became wiser in 2011.  I found that you can lose a job, a boyfriend or a family member at anytime.   If 2011 wasn’t your year, you certainly weren’t alone.  I do hope 2012 is better by leaps and bounds, and that could be financially, career-wise, health and wellness or in your relationships.  I know I would like help in all of those areas!  While I wait for a fairy godmother, to win the lottery, or my blood, sweat and tears to pay off, I am trying to be thankful for the little things – for dinner and wine with girlfriends, for staying up past midnight watching super hero movies with my nephew, for a car that gets great gas mileage and gets me to weddings and weekend getaways.  And with that, I will also be thankful for sparkly shoes!  Shoes that remind us to be carefree and not worry about things we cannot control.  So with this great pair by Betsey Johnson, I am wishing everyone a happy new year, filled with many chances to laugh, love, and have fun.
