First off, my heart and prayers are going out to the soccer team in Thailand. I can’t begin to imagine what they are going through, much less their families. Just… I can’t imagine!
My favorite place to buy clothes and shoes is having a BOGO this weekend on my favorite brand of shoes. (www.fullbeauty.com) I can’t just walk into a shoe store and buy shoes. I can’t! I have a duck shaped foot and the area across that knuckle behind my big toe across to my little to is a double wide. And this place carries shoes I can wear. So this sort of sale – YES!
Now I can hear my friend Sheri saying right now – Now Mama, you don’t need anymore shoes! And I’ve told myself that for a while. And I can hear other friends saying – you don’t REALLY believe that now, do you?
But it doesn’t matter. I’ve had this issue. My favorite go-to shoes are on their last legs.
I wear them with practically everything. I wore them through November and then back again in mid-March. That back strap has popped twice and the hemp-rope siding is starting to come loose on both of them. Somewhere, I have gorilla glue or super glue or even a glue gun that might fix the hemp rope problem temporarily, but I’m thinking they’re on their last legs. The back of the heel on both are warped. Rather than wait for them to gasp that last breath – could be the first week of school, could be November, who knows. I went ahead and ‘made arrangements’ – besides who can go wrong with BOGO?
I know. Almost the same shoe. The height off the floor and on the heel is perfect for me. I have a few pairs of pants that need a shoe lift off the floor. (I have a higher pair for those wide legged pants I have that need a bit more.) My only worry is getting that velcro strap around my ankle. The back as well – if I have to, I can put a skid resistant heel pad to pump it up.
I’m always on the lookout for a closed toe shoe for colder weather (not like we get that much, although even though winter arrived late last year, it didn’t want to go away until late March/early April) I remember last year, I wore my Moxie Booties a lot.
And then well… I needed these…
Yes, they are all black. Black pretty much goes with everything. I have a couple of things that need brown shoes or a neutral color, but I have brown kitten heels and sandals and I have a neutral Espadrille with a 2.5 inch wedge, and some white gladiator sandals and my beige dressy Stevie Sandals…
Don’t judge me. I’m a girly girl. I admit it. I’m a Southern Princess, I own up to it. Gladly. Proudly. For the next 4 months, if I buy anything – ANYTHING – it has to be out of my bank account, NOT the credit card. The credit is NOT maxed – nope, but I’d like to bring it down. Because… well… this…
Not sayin’ ALL of this will make it to my closet. Not at all. Just sayin’..
And now.. FINALLY… It is Guy Day! Sir Guy, king of Smoulder and glare!
I like those red shoes!
The Mules or the Boots???? I’m forcing myself to say NO to everything. For shits and giggles I added everything up – $2100.00. Of course, the vast majority of it will go on sale and there will be sales, but I just need to pay on the card as well as my dental bill. I’m hoping to go home this weekend and I’m going to ask mom to take up the few things that are really huge.
I DO like those mules tho… hmmm mmm
The mules. I don’t think I could keep them on my feet, though. I have a great pair of red Spanish shoes. Actually, here’s the link to the picture. So comfortable and I really like the detail on them… so much so that I bought a blue pair too! https://imfeelingthis.blog/2017/09/04/%EF%BB%BFin-her-shoes-2005-and-wanting-to-be-in-my-new-shoes/#jp-carousel-7663
OH THOSE ARE CUUUUUUUUTE!
Your husband is highly mistaken. A girl can NEVER have too many pairs of shoes! Just like she can’t have too many clothes. When I find a comfy top, I tend to buy them in multiple colors as well.
As for keeping the mules on, if they have at least a little bit of a heel and downslope, I can keep them on, no problems. Thing is, I’ve discovered that mules leave my heels exposed and they crack easier. I have to take as good of care of them with the moisturizer as I do my face.
Thanks! Can’t even wear that slight heel right now. Soon, though, I hope.
I have to admit, my husband is pretty tolerant with my shoe obsession and my Armitage obsession. But he still doesn’t get it. When I brought home my new black trainers with the lace on them, he asked if that meant I would be getting rid of my purple ones. Of course not!
Men! They just don’t get it…
We would be dangerous in a mall…
