Isaac Mizrahi Demille pump
, red scarlet patent leather, $69 @ zappos.com after price match.
So yes, I have a shoe problem. But, well, how can you resist those at that price? I know it sounds like a lame excuse, but I'm not joking when I say I am "investing" in these. Anyway, Zappos and Endless both do free returns, so even if I later realize I have to send them back because I am poor and cannot actually afford designer shoes, it won't be a hassle. I just wanted to jump on them as soon as possible, especially considering they're almost sold out in my size at both Amazon and Zappos.
I wore the leopard pumps tonight to the Morse Christmas dinner and received stares and compliments and a wolf whistle, too.
Rundown on the shoes I've bought since coming to school:"Kara"
La Candienne, black suede ($315 @Nordstrom): these are only $301 @Zappos, but it's sold out in my size/color, so I ordered them from Nordstrom instead. They are horribly expensive, but they are beautiful, can be worn in snow, and I intend to make them last for at least the three years I have left here at Yale.
"Drake" Cindy Says, leopard pony ($30 @Amazon): I love these shoes. The heel slips, but a $3 heel grip at Rite Aid solves that problem, and they are incredibly sexy. In fact, I've never owned sexier shoes than these.
"Stunner" Charles David, black leather ($19 @Endless): this isn't the most comfortable shoe I've ever owned, especially considering that they're originally $198, but they are very, very pretty.
"Stunner" Charles David, white leather ($19 @Endless): they're so damned cheap I just had to buy them in another color"Power"
Charles David, champagne patent leather ($60 @Endless): I haven't received these yet; from the Zappos reviews I probably should have gotten them in 1/2 a size larger, but it's too late for that. If they don't fit well I will just send them back; thank goodness for free returns!"Demille"
Isaac Mizrahi, scarlet patent leather ($69 @Zappos): Um, not much more to say, is there? Isaac Mizrahi not
for Tarjay at $70 is too amazing for words."Rida"
Donald J. Pliner, black patent leather ($130 @Smart Bargains): These are so sexy that I turned a blind eye to the comparatively higher price. Returning these will be more difficult, so I hope I really love them . . .
Again, I am
spending money that I make myself.
/end shoe rant, cue food stuff
Food of the day: spinach, carrots, two apples, and a cup of water. Blend. Add some wheat germ, oats, or wheat bran, if desired. Delicious and nutritious. Also free, if you, like me, can steal things from dining halls.
