Palin’s shoes auctioned for $2,025 on eBay

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009


Remember the Palin shoe auction on eBay?

It ended, and the shoes sold for $2,025:

As part of the purchase agreement, the governor is supposed to autograph the shoes for the winning bidder, whose identity was not revealed on the eBay site.

Now, let’s see if the RNC will get around to auctioning those clothes that The New Majority claims are sitting in trash bags. The Republican party needs the fundraiser!

Hat tip Sissy Willis, who’s pounding the shoe beat!

Election day: Red shoe day

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

The ladies from the Cotillion are wearing red shoes today in support of Sarah Palin. Since it’ll be a long day (with a fair amount of walking) I won’t be wearing these; instead I’m wearing these, the Geox New Alexa, in red:

And red lipstick, too!

Today’s Palin shoes’ post: the boots in Lancaster

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

Via Conservative Belle,

David sent a link to this tempest in a teapot from those who have much to gain from class struggle. The woman needs to look picture-perfect every moment of the day, which requires someone to do her hair and makeup, and a dresser. If she can look that good on only $150,000 by all means she has my blessing.

A Palin roundup: the hockey puck

Sunday, October 12th, 2008

I wasn’t quite awake when I read this headline, Palin Met With Boos at Flyers’ Opener, so my first question was “who’s Boos?”

So much for early-morning mental acuity.

The NYT heading was foreshadowed by a Sportswriter Overcome by Palin Derangement Syndrome. Sister Toldjah has more on the hockey game. John Hinderaker has a great hockey story.

Here’s the video, and all I can hear is the usual noise, mostly cheers,

Judith sent this video comparing Palin’s experience to Obama:

Roger Kimball writes about his disagreement with Christopher Buckley,

Opinion about Palin’s merits is sharply divided, even among conservatives. I acknowledge that she has performed poorly in some recent interviews. Nonetheless, I place myself firmly in the utterly besotted camp. In brief, I think she is the best thing to happen to conservatives since Ronald Reagan. I would feel far safer with her in the White House than I would were Joe Biden or Barack Obama presiding over the canapés at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Why? Well, I enumerated some reasons in a couple of posts last month (here and here.) As it happens, these pieces took off from Bill Buckley’s famous mot about preferring to be governed by the first 2000 names in the Boston telephone directory rather than the 2000 members of the Harvard faculty. Why would he have said that?

Playing Palin. The one good thing about the article is this photo:

She autographed the camera “I am not Tina Fey.”

And the shoes, of course:
No Palin roundup would be complete without a mention of her shoes.

The news services have a shoe fetish with Sara Palin’s shoes, and Mary‘s keeping track. I have been making a modest profit from posting Amazon associates links to Palin’s shoes. Like Palin, I favor red shoes, and bought myself a pair of these for my birthday last month.

By the way, any woman with legs like Palin’s would be crazy to hide them in pantsuits. Eat your heart out, Hillary.

How about the Palin tote bag? We’ve got your tote bag right here.

Covering the Palin shoes story: Footwear Plus calls!

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

I just had the pleasure of being interviewed by Footwear Plus for an article on Sarah Palin’s shoes. Isn’t that great?

In other Palin stories, Neo watched the First interview with the unflappable First Dude, and she liked what she saw. So did I – he is a most attractive man.

SARAH HAS SECRET STYLE TEAM, says the Post. And they’re doing an excellent job. She looks completely comfortable in her style.

“I vote for Naughty Monkey!”

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

Palin’s Style Sparks Buying Frenzy,
And Fashion Firms Rush to Cash In

Jay Randhawa, a brand director at House of Brands Inc. in San Diego, says he was surprised to learn that Gov. Palin was introduced as Mr. McCain’s vice-presidential choice wearing a red pair of peep-toe pumps with 3½-inch heels. The shoes, marketed by his company’s Naughty Monkey line, generally are geared to women in their early to mid-20s who go clubbing, he says.

“The age bracket we target is a little younger. It’s a very edgy, very hip, very street brand,” adds Mr. Randhawa.

Celebrities like Paris Hilton had been photographed in the brand’s shoes, but seldom, if ever, a 40-something politician.

Mr. Randhawa says he realized that Gov. Palin’s footwear choice offered the chance to pitch the Naughty Monkey line to a new demographic. The company quickly sent out emails to its retailers with a photo of the Alaska governor wearing the shoes and the slogan “I vote for Naughty Monkey!”

Don’t miss the slide show.

Patagonia scoffs.

Readers of this blog know I’ve been on the Palin shoe beat from the get-go:
Red shoes to go!
The Ferragamo ticket
The right Palin shoes.
Will continue to cover the story as it develops.

On second thought,
Today is my birthday, and I’m celebrating by ordering these.

Beauty Crucible:

Especially when many female celebrities cultivate an untouchable, pricier-than-thou image, Palin’s dressed-down, realistic look resonates with voters who themselves don’t have thousands in their clothes budget or a stylist on call.

Red shoes to go!

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

Via Larwyn and Maria, Sarah Palin returns to Alaska wearing red high-heeled pumps.

Lisa Schiffren points out,

for the record, that is the second pair of ruby-red shoes she has worn in the last two weeks.

Going by that photo, I belive that she’s wearing Stuart Weitzman future, available at Zappos for $216.00.

A splendid choice, especially for us who love red shoes.

David All, who was at the RNC last week, sent photos of other shoe choices during the convention. McCain was wearing his Ferragamo loafers while Palin wore open-toe pumps:

Here’s the well-shod Palin family:
