Since my wedding dress is tea length and off white, I’ve been toying with the idea of wearing some coloured, retro-ish pumps with it. I pretty much gave up on finding matching shoes, and really, I’m not so matchy matchy.
Turns out lots of people wear coloured shoes – but mostly red or blue pumps and neither of those are really me. I was thinking orange or green would be cool, but had pretty much given up hope of finding something in those colours after browsing on zappos.com, nordie’s and dsw for the past few weeks.
Yesterday on the way home from work I decided that it was time to bite the bullet and try to get the shoe thing done. I stopped at one DSW and didn’t find much. Honestly, all of the pumps had SUPER high heels (3 inches plus) which, when your feet are only about 8 or 9 inches long, causes your footsies to be at a very steep angle! I was ready to give up hope, but decided to push on to a second location where I found these beauties.
The called to me from down the aisle, and I had to reign myself in from sprinting toward them. There were only two pairs and one was in my size! And PRADA? Are you kidding me? I’ve never owned shoes that cost as much as a laptop or camera. Their BOX is nicer than most things that I own.
They were originally on sales from $650 to $499. However, this pair was an additional 70% off. FATE. I clutched the box to my chest and roamed the store like a crazy lady. No one could have separated me from that box. The shoes feel like butter on my feet and smell like Italy.
Yay! Green shoes!
