No doubt about it - I love me some cute clothes. And shoes? Don't get me started.
Not that I have thousands of pairs of shoes but I do have maybe 20. For winter. And the same for warm weather. I've been working hard at Not Buying Too Much New Stuff - but I've also been shopping for a new summertime purse. The one I had last summer is worn out already! Alas - everything I like is by Kate Spade, at about $300 - and I just can't bring myself to spend that kind of money for something I'll carry only till September. I'm not sure I'd even be willing to part with that kind of money for a classic 1980's Coach bag - after all - what's a classic anymore?
Anyway - while looking on the major on-line accessory shops (think Zapos, Amazon, Overstock) I discovered drool-inducing shoes. In particular I discovered these shoes.
Zapos had them in every print or color (there are about 10!) and I just had to make them mine. Of course - I have triangular feet - so lots of times I need a wide width and these didn't come in wide - but I took a chance. Return shipping is free with Zapos so they're worth taking a gamble on. The UPS man delivered them to me yesterday, at work, and the minute he was out the door I was ripping open the box and trying them on. Not only do they fit - YIPPEE! - they were the perfect match for what I was wearing. So. They got their first exposure yesterday.
If I had the money I think I'd buy a pair in every print - still might go back and get the blue/green stripes. So cute. And those black & white print oness that make me think of Audrey Hepburn? Yeah. I just wish they'd use the fabric in these shoes to make some cute summer purses - in classic shapes - not too big, not too small.
Well, yeah. A girl can want, right?
So - here's the link - just in case you were curious:
(oh man! I forgot about those turquoise prints - I want them too!)
And here are some cute quotes about shoes:
“I like Cinderella, I really do. She has a good work ethic. I appreciate a good, hard-working gal. And she likes shoes. The fairy tale is all about the shoe at the end, and I’m a big shoe girl.”
— Amy Adams
“A pair of shoes can change your life. Just ask Cinderella.”
Yeah yeah, I know. I've been AWOL. Been busy, been uncreative, been feeling overwhelmed about Callie - who is all fixed now - there's a post in the queue about that - and another with lots of photos about a cool place to hike - I promise - after the 18th I'll get them finished and posted. I promise. Next week. At Tara.
