Jennifer and Violet, Doing the Three-Step

Thursday, July 30th, 2009
By Glinda


Say it with me me now, “Awwwwww!”

Who does not love Jennifer Garner and her elder daughter, Violet?

They look as if they are leaving a medical office, and Violet has apparently chosen to decorate her mother’s arm with the obligatory stickers they give out at pediatrician offices.

Violet’s sweater is adorable, and I can’t tell if that is a shirt with a bow underneath, but it looks good all the same. And, I love the hot pink shoes, which look to be the Supergas I pointed out here.

As far as Jennifer’s outfit goes, she is all about the comfort, people. Simple tee, simple jeans, and running shoes.

I have to say that I’m not a big fan of running shoes as part of this outfit. There are so many types of cute, comfortable shoes out there to where you don’t have to resort to the New Balances as daily wear.

Me, I’m so lazy that I hardly ever wear shoes that I have to tie, so running shoes are not an option. Because it’s all about just trying to get out the door in time for school, baby.  Give me a pair of slip-on mary janes and I’m good to go.

Listmania! Back to School Shoes for Girls

Oh yes, it’s that time of year. Again.

The thing is, it so much easier to not buy shoes for ourselves, because we can technically make do with what we’ve already got. But for kids? Unless they plan on going barefoot, there isn’t much of a choice. New footwear is a must at some point during the year. Here are some suggestions in time for the start of the new school year.

Vans Kids – Classic Slip-On
Timeless styling that the kids of today just happen to love.

Converse Kids – Chuck Taylor All Star Slip

Cute Summer Sandals On the Cheap

Sorry, but this one is for girls only.

You know, I have long been of the opinion that it’s easy to find good quality, expensive items.  Usually if you have one, you have the other.  But it takes lots of dedication to find good quality, relatively inexpensive items.  And my friends, I am one dedicated person.

I discovered these very adorable sandals on Zappos, and even better, they are under thirty dollars!  They have been given rave reviews, and I’m here to share the wealth.

Super Shoes

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

Today’s shoes are brought to you by Wham-O!  Yes, the same company that brought you hula hoops and frisbees now brings you the newest in shoe technology based on the Super Ball.

Yes, you read that right.

It seems that Stride Rite, not being content to let Nike and New Balance get the lion’s share of air-cushioning/levitating fame, is now featuring kid’s shoes with Super Balls in the heels.  Well, of course not really the actual balls, but the synthetic material dubbed Zectron by the inventor that was used in their making.

Original Super Balls from 1965-66 were able to be dropped from a building and would bounce almost all the way back up.   If thrown down, it would exceed the height of the building on the way back up.  I find that both awesome and scary.  Sadly, there are hardly any Super Balls left in the world, although there are many imitators.

But now, your kids can have that very same material on their feet! Imagine the damage they could do on the basketball court!

Do you think it’s just a bunch of hype, or might there be something to this Zectron stuff after all?

These are a few of my favorite shoes for girls, although I have to admit, it gets a lot harder to find nice shoes for them once they are out of the toddler years. I have some here for you, because I am just that awesome. I’ve got all price ranges, from some very cute shoes for under thirty, to quite pricey at over one hundred.

Listmania! Girl’s Winter Boots

Sunday, October 5th, 2008
By Glinda

Look no further for a comprehensive list of girl’s winter boots! No need for you to slave over a hundred-plus pages of shoes, I’ve done all the hard work for you!

Some of these boots are for the snow, some for rain, and some just to keep those tootsies warm. With a few exceptions, I’ve looked for a nice combination of price, fashion, and functionality. Happy boot buying!

Kamik Kids - Stomp (Youth) (Magenta) - Footwear
Kamik Kids – Stomp (Youth) These popular bright rainboots are sure to chase any rainy-day blues away! Also comes in Infant/Toddler sizes as well.

Columbia Kids - Bugabootoo (Youth) (Swiss/Isla) - Footwear
Columbia Kids – Bugabootoo (Youth) Waterproof, insulated for temps as low as -25/F, and seam-sealed construction makes this a great shoe for cold, wet weather.

Hatley Kids - Rain Boots (Toddler) (Apple) - Footwear
Hatley Kids – Rain Boots (Toddler) Completely waterproof rubber rain boot with lots of cool prints to choose from!

Khombu Kids - Hannah (Toddler/Youth) (Black) - Footwear
Khombu Kids – Hannah (Toddler/Youth) She will love the faux fur trim, and you will love how durable these boots are!

Primigi Kids - Moon (Toddler) (Black) - Footwear
Primigi Kids – Moon(Toddler) These very cute boots are expensive, but a reviewer states that if you are in a location that uses snow boots often, they are worth the price!

Sorel Kids - Powder Storm (Toddler) (Black) - Footwear
Sorel Kids – Powder Storm (Toddler/Youth) The most highly rated of all the snow boots I found, these are some high-tech, excellent boots at a good price.

Cougar Kids - Becky (Infant/Toddler) (Grape/Lilac) - Footwear
Cougar Kids – Becky (Infant/Toddler) Great boots for infants and toddlers. Easy-on and off, as well as very good sole traction to keep them from slipping.

Cougar Kids - Velocity (Toddler/Youth) (Chocolate/Pink) - Footwear

Cherie Kids - 4403 (Toddler/Youth) (Red Patent) - Footwear
Cherie Kids – 4403 (Toddler/Youth) At over three-hundred dollars, this is one set of pricey boots, especially for a kid that will grow out of them. But, they are so purty, I just had to put them up.

Richter - 61.1975 (Toddler) (Misty Rose/Lavender) - Footwear
Richter – 61.1975 (Toddler) I like these warm, waterproof boots because their deep red color is a bit different than the normal pastel colors often seen in girl’s shoes.

Khombu Kids - Oslo (Toddler/Youth) Black (Sand) - Footwear
Khombu Kids – Oslo (Toddler/Youth) Stylish winter shoes that avoid the “spaceboot” look. Lacing makes it easy to tuck in even the thickest pants.
