A Good Investment
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!
