Tuesday {Shoes}Day! … Steve Madden

Good Morning Luv-lies

Another very, very cold night!  Stocked up yesterday on all of the essential creature comforts for another day of  ‘being snowed in’.

Not going to spend too much time complaining about the meal that nature has served us.

That’s it.  I’m over it.

The weather, that is.

I  decided to spend the day nested comfortably in my favorite loveseat, surrounded by as many creatures comforts as could reasonably fit,

watching movies on the cable channel and rifling through magazines.

My movie pick, ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’.   Couldn’t pass up a movie with the following description –

  “Sex. Money. Power. Drugs.

leowolfstory

Brace yourself for an outrageous true story from legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese that critics are calling “a masterpiece for a new generation.”

* Leonardo DiCaprio delivers “the best performance of his career”** as a young stockbroker hungry for a life of non-stop thrills,

where corruption was king and more was never enough. His rise to power earned him the title The Wolf of Wall Street.

Together, Scorsese and DiCaprio deliver a story of American excess that is “an absolute blast from start to finish.”

Haven’t Seen it yet?

You’ll be hooked after this two minute trailer…. guaranteed.

It’s Leonardo!

Right!?

Love the trailer?

No way could I pass up this much fun and frolicking!

  I’m snowed in, after all!!!

Loved the movie! –  It didn’t disappoint.

It’s Leonardo! Right!?

Not only that, quite unexpectedly, the movie gave me the idea for today’s Tuesday {Shoes}Day Theme.  You see, according to the premise of the movie, the relationship between  Jordan Belfort and Steve Madden, landed both of these men – eventually – in the slammer!  It took a minute or two to believe that the Steve Madden that was referenced in the movie is Steve Madden – THE shoe mogul!
…. sometimes I’m slow like that …

Without further ado, here are a few pictures of my Steve Madden Favs!

The Word….

{H}appiness is an easy enough concept to grasp, but a truly elusive state to sustain.

{H}appiness is: {H}opeful.  {H}onest.  {H}uge. {H}ealthy.

{H}eartfelt.  {H}onor.  {H}umble.  {H}ospitable. {H}ypnotic.

Personal.

 

  Remember THIS  {H}appy Song!!
