Package day, part 1 (purple shoes!)

So, I bought the purples shoes late last night and Zappos.com, being amazing, upgraded me to free overnight shipping. Magically, the package left their facilities around 2AM and arrived here today to make it onto the truck that comes around 5:30, so I got the shoes the same day I ordered them! Awesome! Here’s a picture of my modified outfit of the day:

For being 5″ heels, they are actually surprisingly comfortable, thanks to the covered platform. Love them! Might even buy the red ones the next time I get an extra gig.

Yes, that is how I justify buying non-crucial items. These new shoes brought to you by: 3 hymns @ $38 each.

Purple shoes

I am actually not a big shopper – I tend to think of a specific item that I want (a certain cut of skirt, a color of shirt) and then look online for ideas. Then I’ll either buy it online or hit up a store or three in hopes that they’ll have what I’m looking for.

ANYWAY, backstory aside, my current goal is a hot pair of purple pumps. Here is an amazing but unrealistic pair:

Reasons why I wouldn’t buy them: a) They are suede – it is dirty here and it rains a lot. Since I only live 3 blocks from work, I don’t do the whole “change into work shoes” thing. Pointless, especially because I don’t own crappy shoes for that purpose to begin with. b) I don’t buy shoes over $100… yet. Give me another few years to get there. c) They don’t have them in my size, anyway!

Here is a more realistic pair, which I may even buy in red as well:

Patent = raincoat for feet! Just worried about how the satin bit feels/looks/will hold up.
