Mmmm. Shoes. High heeled, low heeled, flat, chunky, stiletto, pointy, round, booties, shooties, embellished... we can't help but love them all, even the really, REALLY ugly ones. The 2010 Page-a-Day Shoe Calendar ($25) from the Victoria & Albert Museum is a great mini-splurge if your shoe budget has shrunk, like all the other *sigh* fun parts of your budget, to nil. 313 pages (Saturdays & Sundays are combined) of vivid color photographs of the most glamorous, out-of-this-world shoes in existence. Use completed days' pages to decorate your office or bedroom (Group them in quirky vintage frames painted in fun colors!), and dream of the day you can afford Manolos again.
