signs of spring

3 Mar

sabin wanted these doc martens for her upcoming confirmation. we ordered them up in the same size as her black ones, but these turned out to be much bigger. so now they’re mine. :-)

spotted in copenhagen. sadly, even tho’ they were 50% off, i showed remarkable restraint and didn’t buy any. what’s the matter with me?

it’s been awhile. it’s still winter here, so the red furry bumpers are still in play. and i’m working for LEGO now, so now i have the opportunity to do things like stand in a huge pile of red lego and photograph my boots!

i was waiting at a radio station to go on the air and talk about a tweet i tweeted during TEDx Copenhagen. i was getting rather nervous, but was happy i was dressed up and wearing my fancy shoes, especially as i was about to give advice on the air to the new american ambassador to denmark! somehow the right clothes can make any situation better.

talking on the phone, chewing gum and wearing these shoes on cobblestones don’t mix. #justsayin

23/9.2013 – who knew #havianas made wellies?

28 Sep

i had long been in need of new wellies, but could never find the size/color i wanted. until now. i didn’t even know havianas made wellies, but now i do! and it’s impossible to be sad it’s raining when you have pretty purple boots.

~ julochka

and these.

and these., originally uploaded by julochka.

these came from the pop-up shop as well. only 50 kroner and score, they’re NOT by paris hilton. :-) they look black, but are actually navy blue. i love them.

~ julochka

got these instead

got these instead, originally uploaded by julochka.

these were also at the pop-up shop and only 150kroner, so they came home with me. they’re light pink and go perfectly with new tan trousers and a light pink blouse i recently bought. score!

~ julochka

I probably won’t be able to resist these

28 Sep

going to be a flurry of catch-up posts here. we have this pop-up shop in town that opens every time the two bored housewives with rich husbands get a new load of stuff in. this time, some paris hilton shoes! if these had fit, i would have bought them, in spite of them being paris hilton. they were gorgeous, but they didn’t have my size.

gathering eggs. must find their new hiding spot.

28 May

i dug deep in the shoe box and unearthed these awesome little Camper flats. haven’t worn then in ages and they’re not worn out at all, so it feels like having new shoes!

this is one of my favorite photos in a long time. it’s sabin’s riding boots, in front of the stall, ready for her to slip them on. it’s somehow so filled with a story, isn’t it?

21/5.2013 – happy colors

21 May


21/5.2013 – happy colors, originally uploaded by julochka.

yup, i’m still using these old aqua wellies. they’ve got major cracks in them, so i can’t actually wear them in the rain, but i also can’t part with them, nor can i decide what color to get next. thought they were pretty rockin’ with my pink homage-to-the-80s pants.

~ julochka

3/5.2013 – is there anything more happy-making than new shoes?

3 May

maybe only this vintage yellow office chair. i may actually have to steal it.

8/4.2013 – it’s good to dress up once in awhile.

11 Apr

whoa, it’s been a long time since i shoe per diemed…tho’ we’ve undoubtedly seen these babies before, it’s such a seldom sight (me dressed up in actual heels and stockings) these days, that i had to share.

we’re still hoping spring will eventually come to these parts – it was a rather nice day on monday, but it turned cold again. and don’t look too closely at my pedi, it’s a mess.

stripes (by spring step)

stripes (by spring step), originally uploaded by julochka.

i haven’t really shown you these yet…weird that. but i’ve not worn them too much. they seem too precious and i don’t want to get them muddy.

i found them in the same marvelous little family-owned, traditional shoe store in mitchell, SD that’s been there since time began. i hadn’t had “spring step” shoes before, but they do indeed put a spring in my step. and a smile on my face when i look down at them.

the smartwool socks were purchased to match.

<3 these shoes

Untitled, originally uploaded by julochka.

i learned from stacey on what not to wear that it’s a cardinal sin to wear nylons (even sexy walfords) with open-toed shoes, so i went barefoot today. i made sure my toenail polish matched the shoes, tho’. tho’ i obviously painted them in the dark, as i didn’t do a very good job. oh well, if anyone’s looking that closely, they should be ashamed of themselves anyway.

i got orange converse too. so bright and cheery, but alas, not high tops. quite fetching with my smartwool stripey socks, don’t you think?

rock star uggs

14 Aug

sabin attracted attention at Mall of America and at the various airports on our way home in her new sparkly uggs.

they make uggs a whole lot less uggly. :-)

latest additions to the converse collection

12 Aug

tho’ i felt like converse were strangely hard to find in the US and i never did see a single pair of high tops, i did manage to get myself 4 new pairs – green, orange, grey w/raggedy green edges and a pair of purple one stars. i’d not seen those before, but they were the perfect shade of purple for the new shorts i got at the gap. now i can pretty much wear converse every day.

~ julochka

ahh, those summer niii-ights.

my most beloved south african havianas. apparently only for tourists in capetown, but what can i say?

new chucks

10/8.2012 – new chucks, originally uploaded by julochka.

grey with kinda raggedy green edges. <3 them. it was actually rather difficult to find all stars when we were in the US and we never did see any high-tops. i wonder what was up with that?

i did, however, manage to find several pairs, which will be making appearances in the near future.

ahhh…

ahhh…, originally uploaded by julochka.

a little peek at my new stripey shoes by Spring Step – found them in a little mom & pop shoe store called Brown’s that’s been on the same corner in Mitchell, SD for years and years. it’s the same place i got the sparkly Uggs for Sabin. i love that i supported a local business instead of a big, evil chain store!!

you’ll be seeing more of these in the near future!

oh how I love these chairs, originally uploaded by julochka.

the library in kolding has the best chairs. but i included a shot of my shoe so it would qualify as a shoe per diem. :-) that’s a little peek at my favorite zebra bag as well. real zebra. it was gonna die anyway. but really, this is about the chair. awesome chair. you could share it with a friend. or you could keep it all to yourself. that’s what i like to do.

they’ve put in these fancy, smooth granite tiles in the approach up to Nørreport Station. it’s just too sleek and nice – Nørreport Station is way more gritty and real than this. say it isn’t so, Copenhagen!!

i spent a few hours in copenhagen yesterday. it was the big prayer day, so nothing was open, but i did a bit of window shopping. i’ll take one of each please, size 40.
