As I posted earlier I went to London on holiday and while I was there I got really, really, I mean really sick. I missed an entire 70 degree day of shopping and high tea at a super fancy hotel with a friend of mine! I was soo sick that I didn't care. I could barely get off the bathroom floor. The next morning when some of the nausea had faded, I still didn't want to move off the bed but I forced my self to get up and get out! It was my last day in London and I only had a few hours to my self for sight seeing( well visiting all the stores I have read about). I, at this point, was relieved that I hadn't bought much in London. So in a weak and dehydrated state I headed for Selfridge's department store.
That was a big Mistake! This is what happens when you should be in bed recovering-your not right in the head!
I suddenly thought I was rich and bought a pair of Balenciaga wedges!
But when I tried them on they made me feel soo much better.I was totally high! And it was late in the day and I hadn't eaten for over 24hours and the Selfridge shoe department is legendary and there was all these beautiful chic women buying shoes all around me. I just got caught up in the glamour of it all!
But they really are beautiful! And after my husband's face returned to its original color, I don't regret the purchase. In fact I am so glad I have such an amazing souvenir to remember London.
I have worn them here and strangers were coming up to complement my shoes.

This goes back to the quality and not quantity thing. These shoes are so special and wearable
they make a Target t shirt and jeans look amazing yet effortless.

super comfortable too.

Next, I had been watching these Balenciaga "lego" shoes on ebay for a while and snatched
them up before they were gone. I paid 170.00 for them and I think they must have retailed for at least 600.00 or more a few years ago. They are real attention grabbers! Not real comfortable though but with a few inserts they should be fine for a party.
These count on my fashion diet, quality and luxury high horse thing I'm on, right?

NEXT,but not last...

These are the Nine West pony hair leopard pumps I got a Nordstroms. They are not on
my fashion budget. I used a 20.00 nordstroms note to bring the price down to 60.00 so not to bad of a slip. Besides the ones I really want and are waiting to go on sale are by LAMB. They are leopard too but are more night time and much higher.
