A Good Investment

In this day and age of Sex and the City and custom made shoe closets, I found myself motivated to make an investment in a few quality pieces. And yes my friends, that means dug deep into a now empty wallet. I don’t mean to say that I blew money on a few pairs of shoes, because in all actuality I probably spend the same amount of money on several pairs that fall apart after a full season of wear. I simply discovered a few great finds that will last for years and be a great addition to my current wardrobe…
Or (gulp) maybe I just have a shoe addiction. But wait, I’m not alone!! A recent article in Harpers Bazaar magazine reported that one in four women would rather buy another pair of shoes than pay bills. Yikes!

So I just had to face it, and realized that no matter how many self-help books I read and the number of yoga classes I took – I was determined to buy some great shoes!

And I’m here to tell you about my new baby!

My first baby was named Ivana. The actual style name is Ivanas, and is made by BCBGMaxazria – who by the way is my favorite shoe designer. The name itself is chic and sexy! When I first saw this shoe, I was literally speechless. The sheer sex appeal of the metal chain t-strap and the skinny heel was more than I could bear. I had to have this shoe!! The price was over $200, and within my budget this qualified as an “investment piece.” For other people, this is probably everyday fodder. But I knew right away, that I must make it mine.

I quickly grabbed my credit card and got to ordering. Within two days these new found gems were sitting at my doorstep! The unveiling was so intense, it felt like time had stopped. I opened the pretty shoe box, and within moments my new sexy shoes were in my hands. I was so pleased with how they looked in person, that I was ready to propose marriage. Seriously, who is BCBGMaxazria and how can I send him flowers? The delicate metal chains were glorious!!

Needless to say, they live comfortably in their shoe box and come out on special occasions. I have worn them three times since they came to live with me, and I’ve had nothing but standing ovations from anyone in my path. These shoes are stellar, and I couldn’t imagine life in a dress without them.

I am still on the prowl for two or three other shoe babies, that I will love and cherish always. If they each bring me as much happiness as Ivana has, then I’m on the road to some happy feet!

It runs through our veins to love shoes. It's built into our DNA. I have a 2 year old and when her little friends come over all they do is try on each others shoes!

I absolutely love thes Ivana's. You must be so proud to own these gorgeous shoes. Like so many women who wear size 11, I find myself mourning because another pair of gorgeous shoes are yet out of my reach. It's Ok! There are so many other fabulous shoes out there for the full-footed girl.

I'm afraid to admit that I have the same anticipation when opening up a new shoebox. Those Ivana's are definitely hawt! As far as shoe addiction is concerned, you will really enjoy our revealing look into the world of Celeb ShoeAholics whose shoe collections dwarf that of the legendary Imelda!

The best place to learn Chinese is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to learn Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of Chinese language class and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.

I always count the happiness when you are wearing the shoes that I want. I always want the best for my feet, that's why I am looking for a shoe that has good quality and comfortable to wear. Of course, I am looking only that will suit my budget too. I will consider a Michael Kors Harlen Lace-Up Sneakers for my white cashmere sweater. This could be a cool outfit for me this weekend.
