My $3,000 Shoes

When I first saw Madonna in these Louis Vuitton ads, her shoes screamed at me!

BUY ME!
The shoe below promised to give me satisfaction in exchange for $3,000.


So I gave up. This was March. In September, I was drawn into Steve Madden when I spied a sale wheel.
Spin the wheel, get between 10-90% off.
I spied a pair of shoes priced around $100 that kinda resembled the shoes above, spun the wheel & scored 20% off.
I sauntered out with a guilt-free pair of kicks that to wear to work & yes, they are already banged up.

The incredibly talented (and yes folks, he is that nice in person!) Nick Verreos. We did a fashion segment for GDLA the other day & I stole this pic from his beautiful website.

Oh I know how you feel about those shoes! I was willing to go broke and spend hundreds on them. But thousands?? No way. Not happening! Well unless I win the lotto or something.

By the way, I've got a stunning Tolani scarf to give away at my blog. Come check it out :)
