First a word on my absence. All I remember is doing the Jeanette Jenkins Bikini Boot Camp DVD on a Saturday, then taking a relative to the Urgent Care Center the following Sunday, and by that Monday my body was in full on battle mode against the flu from hell. And the war wages on. And as if fighting to not cough up a lung wasn't enough fun, I was smack dab in the middle of some home renovations, and then there was the family visiting from out of town. So yeah I've been going through some things.
Due to the renovations, I've been doing some serious purging of my closet lately and unfortunately the shoes above did not make the cut. There's nothing really wrong with any of them, but I'm really trying to get my closets to a place where every thing in them is something I love and use regularly.
In the past couple weeks I've noticed that I've used the shoes above the most. The black Tory Burch midi heels and the grey peep toe Nine West pumps are really the workhorses of my closet. I never would have thought that I would get so much wear out of a pair of grey shoes.
These are shoes that I'm determined to wear at least once before the year is over. I don't care if I have to wear them to the pharmacy. I.am.going.to.wear.them.
These shoes are a perfect example of the downside of online shoe shopping. I got my regular size in these pairs from Cole Haan, but both were too small. I wore the black pair(I'm blaming it on flu induced delirium) thinking they would stretch out. Yes, I realize now that nothing about that leather looks like it would stretch, but what can I say. I was sick, and I wanted to wear my new shoes. When I returned the purple ones, the associate told me to bring in the black pair, and they will stretch them to see if that makes a difference. I'll keep you guys posted.
I hope everyone is having a safe, and fun holiday season. Thanks for reading!
