another year around the sun

Pussy’s Black Ribbon -Ties, originally uploaded by pussyinboots.

It’s true, today’s my birthday. I’ve turned 29.

So I’ve got a little birthday request. If you feel so inspired, take a nice shot of your lovely strappy sandals and send them on to me with whatever birthday wishes on the image.

As much as I love this image of ribbon ties (man o man, they are my favorite kinds of shoes) above that I found on Flickr, it’ll be all the better when the legs are belonging to some fabulous queer femme. I can imagine them wrapped around my waist a little better that way, mmm …

Butches, bois, & other folks – I don’t mean to exclude you from the shoe fetish fun! Take a shot of your motorcycle boots, your Madden loafers, your favorite Birkinstocks, your cuff links, your tie – whatever you feel inspired to do. I guess it’s a call for accessory shots more than shoes.

Post ’em on your own blog, or email them to me & I’ll round ’em up and post ’em here.

I don’t know why the wrapping around the leg and ankle heats me up so damn much … it just does. Delicious.

Donate to RAINN & let ‘em know I sent you – add  “GBBMC2008: Mr. Sinclair Sexsmith” in the information box. (Why?)

    How bizarre — I was just commenting on my friend's "It's My Birthday" blog entry and what should pop up in my reader?


    Very twilight zone.

    Anyway — Happy birthday!

    Hope you have a wonderful birthday today – do something fabulous! And I had to giggle at the thought of my legs being in heels again. Where in the hell is Belle and her heels (and stockings) when we need her?

    Happy Birthday, Sin! may it be filled with beautiful femmes in strappy sandals.

    really though, shouldn't there be an open call for such submissions year-round?

    Happy Birthday, Sinclair! May your deviant wishes come true!


  6. Hippo Bircage, Sinclair! I hope you are having a fantastic day :)

    Just for you, I shall dig out a pair of my heels and take a photo! Expect an email sometime soon…

    xx Dee

  7. Oh, my gosh, happy birthday, happy birthday!!! I hope you're out getting showered with kisses from hotties and whiskey right now. To another amazing year!

    happy birthday, Sinclair! I wish I could send you a picture, but it wouldn't be quite appropriate, somehow…

    Nevertheless, I hope 29 is a wonderful year for you. It's been a hell of a ride for me!

    Happy, happy birthday! I hope you enjoyed your special day….looking forward to all the wisdom a 29yr old Sinclair will bring ;)

    Happy Birthday darlin! Hope you had an entirely devastating day filled with beauty and decadent opulence.

    happy birthday you! i am a fabulous queer femme but i'm afraid high heels and strappy sandals are not my favoured footwear – it's birkenstocks for me. i'll see if i can rustle up a pic of my femmiest pair.

    i hope you have a wonderful day x

    Happy Birthday!

    Can it be any femme-ish shoes, or does it *have* to be strappy. Because I don't *d0* strappy…

  14. a very happy birthday!

    though i don't think you'd care to see

    my hairy legs

    great though they are!

    not quite what i imagine

    you are looking for …

  15. I have no good excuses for why I'm late commenting. I hope your birthday was fantastic!!

    I don't have strappy heels, but I hope the pic I left on my blog for you will do…. xoxo

    happy birthday
