Here’s the thing -
I am really interested in adding a cute, criss-cross, strappy pump to my closet. There are dozens and dozens of shoes that fit this description, yet I keep coming back to these shoes:
I have been grooving on these shoes since spring. And, while I really like the black pair, it is the somewhat impractical, metallic red, faux-snakeskin pair that keeps drawing me back in to see if these have gone on sale yet anywhere online (wow, they are now on sale at Zappos)….the gold ones just give me flashbacks to 80′s Solid Gold episodes – high heels and spandex, *shudders*.
Also, for some reason when I look at these, the phrase “Surrender Dorothy” runs through my mind….but in a fun way. But there’s no way you’re gonna get me to wear a blue-gingham checked dress with these. More like a black cocktail dress or dark wash denim paired with a tailored button-down blouse.
I was expecting the siren call of these to fade as the months passed, but something about them won’t let go of me. Perhaps I am subconsciously seeking a pair of my own iconic ruby slippers with all of their magical and transformative powers?
Or, maybe it’s more simple and I’m just doomed to remain hopelessly, happily shoe-obsessed.
I can handle that.
