Just Sincerely over here knew about all the buzz but decided to ignore it because, seriously, some trends do get over done and then I heard the pumps were very uncomfortable too. Well, fast forward to months later, when the trend is almost done and I have a pair of bow tie pumps in my shoe closet and it was totally unplanned. I'll tell you the story...
I had my bi-annual dental check-up a few weeks ago and I left work an hour and a half early to make up for the traffic but it happened that I got to the dental clinic too early and instead of just sitting in the clinic lounge to read magazines, watch t.v. or get a free massage in the high tech massage couch, I decided to go spend an hour at the mall which was just a block away and headed straight for the closest shoe store; DSW...smh.
I walked around the store enjoying all the beauties on the shelves and then something caught my eye in the corner and I froze! These shoes were right there in my face!! I never knew Mojo Moxy had a bow tie pump in their collection since I'm a bit used to the brand. Well, it happens that they were on sale too and to cut a long story short; I finally got bow tie pumps...:-). I love that they are green color too because I really do love green shoes and it's even better when they are suede. The Mojo Moxy version are not as high as the other brands which is a "con" for me because in my shoe world, "the higher-the better." However, they are very comfortable. Well, here they are. You'll certainly see them soon in an outfit post on the blog and these are my new summer wedding party shoes...:-)

Thanks so much for stopping by.
ST. PATRICK'S DAY
Extracted from wikipedia
Saint Patrick's Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig, "the Day of the Festival of Patrick"), is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick(c. AD 385–461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.
Saint Patrick's Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church, and Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilithe, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. Christians also attend church servicesand the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday's tradition of alcohol consumption.
Saint Patrick's Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the British Overseas Territory of Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world, especially in Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australiaand New Zealand.
