Shoe obsessed

I will admit that I have a bit of a problem when it comes to shoes. I absolutely adore them. I have yet to own a pair of Manolo Blahniks, Jimmy Choos, or Christian Louibitons , and what better event to splurge on a pair?

I am also ebay obsessed, especially when it comes to pricey designer purchases, so I am fairly confident I will be able to find my dream shoes at a deep discount.

The first shoe I thought I wanted was the famous "stolen shoe" from Sex and the City.  (The episode where Carrie is forced to take her shoes off at a friend's party and they are missing when she goes to leave.  Yes, I am a huge SATC dork.)  I just love the silver fabulousness of them, and I can just imagine them peeking out from under my dress (when I lift it a little to show them off, of course!) 
Feast your eyes upon these!
You can usually find these on Ebay for a fraction of their sale price, if you don't mind getting a floor sample.   Unfortunately, when I tried them on at Saks, they just were not what I wanted.  I love them, but they were almost a little too bridal for me, if that makes sense.
The next shoes I tried on were these fabulous Jimmy Choos:
I really liked the gold color of these.  They are very strappy, but somehow comfortable.  However, I have not found them on Ebay at all (for an affordable price). 
So, the search continues!  I am not opposed to color and have really just been searching Ebay for the designers in my size and price range.


  1. The shoe search took me forever! I started searching last August & didn't buy my shoes until June! 10 months!!! Oh and I agree with you about the splurge. Go for it! This is what I ended up with :) ...http://thealternativebride.blogspot.com/2009/06/excitement-keeps-building.html

  2. @THE ALTERNATIVE BRIDE - those Jimmy Choos you chose are fabulous. Seriously.
