First of all, thanks to Marianne on for mentioning me (and Sheila and Amber) in a column yesterday. It drove my blog visits to over 100,000. That's pretty exciting to me. And XOJane is Jane Pratt, of Sassy magazine, the best magazine of my youth! Doubly exciting. Whoo!

Blouse: Joe Fresh (last worn here)
T-shirt: Old Navy
Skirt: Desigual (last worn here)
Shoes: Cole Haan

These aren't the usual kind of shoes that I'd wear with this outfit. But I had to show you the new magic power I have acquired. The power to change the colour of my shoes using only my will.

All I have to do is think really hard, look super duper adorable, point at my feet and then


*thunder* *lightning*



I think this is a most excellent development considering my shoe love.

*tee hee*

(They're actually these. When you photograph them using a flash the reflective coating shows as white.)

Or are they....?


  1. Wow, that's awesome about the article!!

    And what sneaky shoes those are! They are awesome!

  2. Well now I'm fairly jealous of your super powers.

    Reflective shoes! What a fabulous idea!

  3. Magical indeed! Love that skirt, great print and colours, and awesome brogues.
    I checked out the article and chuckled at the list of bloggers, all of whom I know and love. I know the overall tone was really positive, but I thought it was odd to describe the blogs mentioned as "not perfect" because all the bloggers are white, middle class, of average size and not disabled... It's like watching a gentle costume drama and then complaining there were no car chases or belly laughs. Or is it just me? Probably. I am pleased you got both a mention and yet more appreciation of your style and excellent proportions, Megan! xxxxx

  4. If they ever do come up with shoes that can change color while they're on the wearer's feet, I have no doubt whatsoever that you'll be one of the first people to find a pair, Megan.

  5. Congrats on the feature. OMG YOUR SHOES! I imagine you hear that a lot, but those take the cake with surprise features.

  6. Awesome to be in such stellar company at xoJane!

    Fantastic outfit - I strongly suspect that looking super duper adorable is your magic-shoe ingredient.

  7. Holy doodle - I love those huge circles on the back of your skirt!! I like the front too, but I'm a sucker for big dots. We all knew you had superpowers already. :) Those are the most attractive safe shoes I've ever seen. I'm cheering for your SIX digits. Woo hoo!

  8. I don't know what Melanie means by "most attractive SAFE shoes", but I haven't seen magic shoes since The Wizard of Oz. If you click your heels do you leave work?

    It's so cool that not only do your shoes have two personalities, but your skirt does, too!

  9. You are a trickster! Love the shoes and that skirt is making me drool!

  10. I was gonna say CONGRATS! But then I got befuddled by the shoe thang :o

  11. Nice shoutout! 100,000 views? That rocks! So do the shoes. Very tricky. And amazing, btw! I do love them. I'm kinda shocked they're not 'vogs, but I'll forgive you :P
