Jessica Simpson shoes rock, actually



There are certain things in life that are inherently annoying.Jessica

Britney Spears' singing voice. Paris Hilton's fame. Anthropologie's high price tags. (That one is a personal pet peeve of mine!)

I got to thinking about these things after a reader comment last week about Jessica Simpson, who in addition to not washing her hair very much also has a namesake line of accessories. Our devoted reader said she couldn't bring herself to give money to Jessica. I'm assuming it's cuz Jessica falls into that category of inherent annoyances. I can't disagree.

However. This winter, I looked past the label and bought a pair of Jessica Simpson snub-nosed, stacked wedge shoes on sale at Nordstrom. And I gotta say, they have quickly become my favorite footwear. I love the look (suede toe, brushed-gold buckle) and the comfort (sooo much sole padding, and they practically feel like flats). Check them out, or buy them for 40 percent off.

Does it still bug me that Miss Simpson doesn't know the difference between chicken and tuna? Yes. But I have to give credit where it is due. The gal (or her people, anyway) knows something about shoes.
