a woman's right to shoes

so yesterday's post was serious, and today's post is, uh, ridiculous.  maybe.  i hope you're a fan of sex and the city so you can understand the silver shoe thing!  when i watched the episode "a woman's right to shoes," where carrie's beautiful new silver jeweled manolo blahnik peep toes were stolen from the party, i fell in love with those shoes, and although i didn't know when - if ever - i'd have the need for silver jeweled peep toes, i knew i wanted some.  so fast forward a few years until now, and guess what, i actually do need silver heels!

























this is the ultimate in frivolity, so bear with me.  i haven't forgotten about those heels all these years later, but like i said, i didn't need a pair as i'm sure they wouldn't be worn much.  on saturday i met my sister, my stepmom, and one other bridesmaid for a dress fitting for my sister's wedding next june (p.s. i'm going to be a bridesmaid).  when i asked her what type of shoes we were to wear and she said, "it doesn't matter what style they are as long as they're silver," i think my heart skipped a beat.  that meant i now had a legitimate, bonafide reason to own shoes like carrie's!

so here's the thing: i can be incredibly impulsive when i decide i want something.  my sister's wedding isn't until next june, so i truly don't need these now.  BUT, i have a difficult, if not impossible time finding shoes in my size (5), and i found a pair that's not only my size, but it's a steal of a price, AND they are so similar to carrie's manolos that i bet i could trick someone into thinking they are real (but obviously joking is no friend of mine.  obviously.)!  but there is only 1 left in my size.  so what do i do?  buy them now and covet them forever or let them go and wait until closer to the wedding date to start shopping for their twin?  HELP!

  3. As someone who was once in a bridal party, I'd say buy them now! They'll be gone closer to the wedding and then you'll never find anything as right as them again and then you'll be screwed and you'll have to make this mad panicked pilgrimage to find something that works within the bride's specifications and then you'll go mental and want to quit the wedding and then you'll just have to suck it up and make it yourself and then you'll never want to look at the pictures or be in another stressful wedding again in your life. (ummm... hypothetically speaking, of course ;)

  7. You should buy them!! They're 50% off and they're pretty much exact replicas of Carrie's!! You can wear them for Christmas or New Years too (not just at your sister's wedding)!! PS. I'd love for you to come visit my blog and follow me if you like it!! :)

  11. I'm not an impulsive shopper but that price is a steal, get them now! If not you will spend the next year searching and regretting this missed deal.

  12. I'm so late chiming in but I really hope you bought them! I searched everywhere for a similar pair when I was getting married, with no luck. They're soooo pretty and you deserve them ;)
