OMG, thanks, Reuters! Perhaps they heard my plea for more shoe coverage? Anyway, the other day I was sad because I wasn't able to identify Sarah's horrible red pumps, but today I can redeem myself by stating unequivocally that those are Tory Burch pumps, because that's who does the gimmicky stripe at the bottom of the heel. That puts them in the $300 range. You're welcome. I don't think those are very nice shoes, personally; they aren't fabulous. Mid-price shoes can really be a problem.
Oh, also: the other day I pointed out that this whole campaign is all about the shoes. It turns out I was wrong! The whole campaign is also about makeup:

Ha ha! I don't know about you, but one of those "women" mentioned in the caption looks a little grizzled to me!
