When Shopping Online Doesn't Work...

You get your fix in person! My day started off bad. BNY canceled my order for the Prada booties, AGAIN. This time I give up. Then during lunch, my Versace MJs came and I almost cried when I tried them on. Cried from horror. Those shoes are HELLA ugly on. Major toe cleavage. Ew, ew, ew, ew. I immediately went down to the mail room downstairs and shipped those back. That left me with NO NEW SHOES. I decided I had to stop shopping for deals online and drove straight to BNY after work. I grabbed just about all the shoes that I liked and asked to try them on in my size. Note to self: never do this again. I ended up coming home with two new additions to my Louboutin collection:

Green Declics:

A few months ago, I saw a picture of someone wearing dark green pumps and I made a mental note to keep my eyes open for some pretty green shoes. Now I have these sitting in my closet :)

Gray New Simples:

I've been meaning to get gray pumps. I only have one other pair by Charles David and those are dying so these fit nicely into my collection of basic pumps.

I'm sorry to say the sleeping monster has been awakened. While I still refuse to pay for the styles over $900 ($800 is pushing it), I desperately NEED the Alti pumps. The BNY in BH only had a size 6 and I almost fainted when I tried them on. TO DIE FOR. My SA assured me she would keep me posted if any popped up in my size. In the meantime, I will dedicate every waking second to finding those shoes. I M.U.S.T have those shoes. I'm totally kicking myself right now for not tyring these on when they first came out.

Some outtakes:

Yes, I know, I've trained them well. Libby and Olivia love Loubs just as much as me :D

Great purchases. I almost bought those Grey simples off ebay.

The Alti pumps are GOR-GE-OUS. I'm disappointed a lot of the new CL styles are so expensive, 1,000+. I thought we were in a recession!

I KNOW!!! I remember when they used to be $600. Now practically everything starts at $995. WTF?!?!?

I love that green color!! I've been looking everywhere for green shoes but I might end up having to dye a pair. I miss the shopping monster, glad to know it's back! =)

Hahaha...yea I'm sure my dad isn't as happy that the monster is back :P

0hh yummmmm! the green is amazing, its hard to find a good green shoe, the green is usually to bright or to dark or just plain tacky!

kitties!!! I agree on that great shade of green. I am debating whether to get a more emerald-green Stella McCartney for Adidas running jacket (if I only was a runner... or at least jogged!).
