But these are not spring and summer shoes. They are fall and winter shoes. As temps in Austin remain in the 90's during the day, I have put off wearing these beauties. Every time my husband saw them on the floor, waiting for their big moment, he would shake his head in wonderment -- not a fan. But I remained undeterred. Even his disapproval did not diminish my growing love for these gold beauties.
At the start of my business trip to Boise on Sunday, I saw my shot and I took it. Worn with black skinny jeans, a long black sheer tee, and a bright red scarf, the shoes debuted. They were greeted by those at the airport with a mixture of wonder and amazement. A few people complimented them enthusiastically. I wore them to a speakers' reception in Boise Sunday night and had about the same ratio of "I-don't-know-what-to-say-but-wow-how-unusual" and "those are really hot."
I, of course, love them. Plus, they are even more comfortable (only a 2" heel, I think) than the most perfect shoes in the world, my beloved Chies. I'll have to make the most of them these next 4 months, before spring arrives. If you aren't sure yet what to make of them, I think you will soon grow to love them in time. :) xoxo
that's amazing that you found the right size the day AFTER you ordered the size you were willing to settle for. that happens to me all the time. sometimes I even force it. I say bring home the gold!ReplyDelete
They are absolutely amazing! How lucky you were to find them in the right size. I'm afraid your Chies are facing serious competition!ReplyDelete
