“It’s not about Breaking Gender roles….” But sometimes you do.
Today’s pairing is dedicated to the women who inspire me. Woman, who fill the Shoes of Expectation and have surpassed them. Today I dedicate this blog to Director Kathryn Bigelow and Winemaker Heidi Barrett.
“ I’ve spent a fair amount of time thinking about what my aptitude is,
and I really think it’s to explore and push the medium.
It’s not about breaking gender roles or genre traditions. ”
—Kathryn Bigelow in 2009
Wine Shoes: Heidi Barrett, is a guiding light for women in the wine industry. Responsible for some of California’s most notable wines like “Screaming Eagle” and “Revana“. I hear references to other female winemakers saying: “She’s going to be the next Heidi Barrett”, an Icon!
Talent is just the beginning of these women to say the least of their amazing products they have created. These achievements have opened doors in different walks of life. Paving the road for more of us woman to take up our heels and step out into the world.
Just because Paul Giamatti says Merlot sucks doesn’t make it true! Always stand up for what you believe in. Women, like Merlot, are amazing! No one in the world can tell me otherwise.
These Red Polkadot Pumps make me think of kickin’ up my heels. With a sly smirk, I walk into a bar, uncensored and lookin’ for trouble. This flirty gal can go out after a long day and still have some fun! Naughty Anita is here and ready to play. Yee-Haw.
Naughty Shoes meets Naughty Wine
Women from all the lands have at some point been told that enjoying life and enjoying their bodies is somehow indecent! This is a call to all of you beautiful, strong and amazing women – You are wonderful! You are Sexy! You are Naughty and you are great for being all of these things. Be proud of who YOU are! Flaunt it! Shout it! Be it!
‘Trouble Maker Match’
Fleury Estate’s: ‘F in Red’, is a Merlot Blend that was inspired by the movie “Sideways”. Which exclaimed, “I am NOT drinking any fucking Merlot!”
This red is full of delicious juice and commonly referred to as the F’n Red. Sumptuous, Sassy, and full of va-va-voom this red will encourage you to go out and paint the town with these heels on…
Spring Time Sandals are a very special time in a girl’s life. You get to play with some fun colors and match your cute spring dresses to your adorable new sandals. But wait there’s more. PEDICURES…. the sweet toes of the world come out to play, in all their glory. Toes painted in spunky, spicy, sultry, cocktail driven, romance inspired colors.
St. Supery Sauvignon Blanc a lovely spring time white wine. *especially this Dollarhide Selection* A glass of this crisp wine transports you to a quite beach, sunshine washing over you and your spectacular new toe polish. Splashes of fruit caress your tongue and now all you need is a steamy romance novel with a half-naked buff guy on the cover… short hair only (please).
I love taking photos of peoples shoes. Hi, my name is Anita and I have a shoe problem, the first step is admitting there is a problem, right? I think shoes say a lot about a person. Personally, I alternate between my 2 favorite shoes. I wear them down to the souls and then have to say a couple words when I toss them into a trash can. It’s like saying goodbye to a bunny rabbit.
So… what does a crazy shoe fascination have to do with pairing wine… we’ll I’m not totally sure, but let’s take this journey together shall we.
I’m pleased to introduce my series, “Wine + Shoes” A compilation of Wines I’ve had, matched with Shoes I’ve seen.
