Free Giveaway Contest!

I'm giving away an autographed copy of my beautiful friend Jess Riley's first novel Driving Sideways. She has a terrific sense of humor, which you can see for yourself by reading Riley's Ramblings on my sidebar. There are a pair of shoes on the cover of her book so this contest has to do with shoes. I know, shocking.

This contest centers on a celebrity. It's the same celebrity wearing two different pairs of shoes. Her choice in footwear is so tragic that her celebrity badge should be revoked immediately. I think it goes without saying she has no stylist.

You can only vote for ONE name a day. If someone has already left your guess, it doesn't matter, leave yours anyway. You may both be wrong! Why one guess only? Because I'm very, very mean. Actually, I just don't want people to throw out a million names that they've copied from People Magazine.

If there are no winners on day 1, a clue will be revealed the next day. If there are no winners on day 2, there will be a clue every day until we have a winner or multiple winners. In that case I will put those names into a hat and choose the winner.

And for those of you who want to give me the "I don't care about fashion" line, you're lying. Fashion is art so if you like art, you can appreciate fashion. I've yet to meet a person, male or female, who didn't care or else they'd all be wearing bathrobes to the office and barbecue aprons to church. There's that great line from The Devil Wears Prada where Streep rips Anne Hathaway a new one for saying "It's only a belt." Remember that line? She said that fashion keeps millions of people employed and that 'belt' you put on was obviously to your liking or else you'd be wearing string cheese to hold up your pants. Or something like that.

Footwear Tip Of The Day: In the days when dinosaurs our mothers roamed the Earth, the purse and shoes always had to match. Today that is considered a BIG no-no.

End of chat.

    Those ARE tragic!but I really have no idea who that could be...but I think it's got to be a 'newer' celeb. Or someone who has been missing and came back.

    And have you been watching the Kardashians? those girls ALWAYS match their shoes with their purses- it's most noticeable when it's their knee high boots (white or red). It's gross

    I'm guessing Renee Zellweger, I'm also guessing how to spell her name . . .

  3. Patricia Heaton?

    Bad those are bad bad bad. Maybe she was going for comfort but if you're a celeb, you should know how to suffer for fashion.

  4. Jennifer Love Hewitt popped into my mind.

    Please tell me whoever she is is barelegged in that second photo. Because I can't bear the idea of sandalhosen.

    Nicole Kidman?

  6. Is that...nylons paired with open-toed shoes in #2?!

  7. Migh Cate Blanchett make such a miscalculation?

  8. Yay Jess' book is coming out! Great read.

    Bad shoe choices. If that is hose with open toed sandals then I am at a complete loss. I'm going to guess Natalie Portman.

    I so want to say Scarlett Johansson but I'm not so sure she'd make such a faux pas

  13. Caesar Augustus? One of those other Caesars? In drag, of course.

    Honestly, I don't care about shoes (though I think even I would've noticed the hose toes)....just wanted to share an uncomfortable laugh:

    Minnie Driver

    Oh, I had it in my mind until I got here. A proud blonde moment.

    Oh yes, Gillian Anderson. I had all sorts of 'them' running through
    my brain, so I thought 'fugly' site.

    I also saw Gillian Anderson twice
    get called on the 'shoes'.

    Is this cheating ?

  16. Those shoes look like something Diablo Cody would wear. That's my guess.

    Fun contest. Thanks!
