MIA – plus shoes

Sorry, life has gotten a bit hectic to be posting.  BF’s job, family visit, birthday celebrating, etc.  But I have found time for shoes 😀
All were on my list since the start of the year.  Funny how sometimes it seems you can’t find anything you want or need and then, just a week or month later, it ALL seems to show up at once.  This is my shoe scenario.  Not one pair for almost 5 months.  And then 3 of the 4 on my list within 2 weeks.

They are all birthday gift $$ presents and I love them all.  Sometimes waiting until just the right ones come along is sooooo worth it.  Oh, and only the slipper flats are full price ($59 on Zappos).  The Rebel sandals I had my eye on but wisely knew would be silly to buy until very recently due to my weather.  Waiting paid off – they came down to $15.  For real leather.  Score!  The Kelsi Dagger mules are pre-owned but barely worn.  Should be worth every penny of the $23.50.  All in all, I couldn’t be happier with my shoe update for 2015.

I’ll try not to be so MIA even when things get hectic.  I really feel I’m settling into my wardrobe.  I am, however, still adjusting to the newer version of my life as a grocery clerk among other changes.  Being patient with it, and myself.  I can feel a shift in life and it’s welcome.  But change isn’t always easy.  Usually it’s good to get out of the comfort zone, though, and grow.

  1. Glad to see you back! Shoes are on my “need” list at the moment. In the last couple of weeks I have purged three pairs of nicer sandals from my closet. They were all many years old and had seen plenty of wear. I have enough casual sandals for this summer, but I am in need of nicer wedge or sling-back sandals that can be worn with work clothes such as trousers, skirts and dresses. My go-to pairs are old and in need of replacing.

    My shoe size is 8.5 narrow, which means I can’t find my size/width in most shoe stores. I have a couple of dependable sources for my narrow-width shoes, but shoes are getting so expensive! The pairs I used to buy a few years ago for under $100 now cost $150-175. At these prices, I can’t afford to make mistakes! I try to wait for sales or promotions. I’m hoping my usual stores will have Memorial Day sales.

    What is the fourth pair on your wish list?

    • Good luck with your search. My final pair is a bright flat. Maybe red or cobalt. I’m a little open ended on that one; it may change before the year’s up.
      Sadly, my grey mules sale got canceled shortly after I posted. I guess they’d sold but the website wasn’t up to date. Boo. So I scored 2 pairs out of the 4. 😉
