I've been very bad lately. Despite the fact that my closet is practically spitting out shoes every time I open it, I did a little bit of shoe splurging. I've had my eye on both of the black pairs here for quite a bit of time, so at least I know I REALLLLLLLY wanted them.
First up are the adorable Mix No. 6's with a bow that is both cute and sexy. I tried them on at DSW nearly 2 months ago, then I almost fainted while I was at the store (long story) and I wasn't able to get them. I've been watching them online, but still never made the plunge. Last week I went with my sister so she could get some new years eve shoes and I saw them again - except they no longer had a 6.5, 7, or 7.5. 7.5 is really pushing it, so I would be drowning in an 8, so I decided to see if the 6's fit, because sometimes they do - and what do you know, they did fit! And they were more comfortable than when I tried on the 7's. With one pair left and online sold out, it was now or never for these babies.
Next are these Gomax brown georgia's from lulus.com. I bought a new "leather" (aka vegan leather) jacket and I wanted to up it so I qualified for free shipping. These were cute, very "me" and I'm glad I added them to my order, I feel like they will go with a lot.
Now, while the first 2 pairs are definitely things that scream my name, this last Chinese Laundry pair is not a typical "me" shoe. The main reason being its platform + height. It's actually something more up my younger sister's alley (she's more clubby while I'm more cafe). I have been seriously lusting after them in blush with the ruffle down the middle but I saw these at TJ Maxx for a much lower price, but only in size 6. I rationalized that if the 6 fit, I would get them - again it did. I have more black shoes than I care to admit, but these will stand out as a go to "going out" shoe, I just love the mesh.
I have one more pair on it's way to me. It's another pair I've been eyeing for months and months and months and they finally got so cheap I "had" to buy them. My blog doesn't have the word "shoe" in it for no reason...
