Missing: Self-Control

I always seem to out do myself with each sale season. When this F/W sales first started, I told myself that I was only allowed 3 pairs of sale shoes. 10 pairs of sale shoes, 2 pairs of regular priced shoes, 2 Chanels, and 1 Bal later, my self-control is finally making a come back. I think, I hope. The reappearance of my self-control is actually why I haven't been blogging this week. For the sake of my sanity, I've been busy trying to edit my sale shoes. Heres what I came up with:

Keeping (these are in addition to the shoes that I've already posted):

Chloe wedges on sale at Saks:



These are just adorable and SOOOOO incredibly comfortable. In fact, I might try to hunt down a pair for my mom...

Lanvin pumps on sale at BNY:



I originally was trying on the burgundy version but when I asked the SA to look for a smaller size, he came back with this bronze patent. Once they were on my feet, I think I actually started jumping up and down out of pure shoe joy :) I think these might actually be one of my favorite sale purchases this year.

Plum suede Ataldama on sale at Saks:


Most stores were REALLy low on stock this year so I feel incredibly lucky to have scored these from the Saks pre-sale. Thank you Shopping Gods and my wonderful SA in Atlanta!!


Rouge patent Rolando on sale at Saks:


Again, very lucky find :) These are about 1/2 size too small for me but no worries - I'm almost an expert when it comes to stretching shoes! To be honest, I'm a bit on the fence about keeping these. I already have the Biancas in the rouge patent and I have 3 other pairs of Rolandos in my closet. Not sure if this is really necessary buuuuuuuut I just feel like I would regret returning these shoes...especially since I've had red Rolandos on my list for awhile now. HELP!!! What do you think?? Keep or return??


Returning:

YSL Divine booties on sale at Saks and BNY:


These are amazing shoes but at the end of the day, not really me. I think its the heel that bugs me. I dont know..they looked great while I was at the store but when I got home, I wasn't so into them anymore.

Lady Lynch in nude glitter from NM online (not on sale):


I've been getting so many lovely comments from all of you about how pretty these shoes are but unfortunately, they're not as lovely to walk in. I know, so unlike me...returning shoes because I can't walk in them!! Sigh. I would've definitely kept these if I didn't get so carried away with the shopping but since I did, I had to eliminate shoes that I knew wouldn't get much wear. I went back and forth on these for about two days before I finally sent them away...SOB.

Silver goa Rolando on sale from NM online: Sorry, I didn't even get a chance to take a picture of these (they're also completely sold out online so I can't even copy and paste a pic for you...)! My dad was a bit too eager and returned these before I got a chance to take pics and have DZ try them on :( These were really pretty but way too big for me. Even with double and triple padding, they still felt loose and were not comfy at all.


So there you have it. My net = 8 pairs of sale shoes, 1 pair of regular priced shoes (ETA: this Friday!!!), 2 Chanels, and 1 Bal (ETA: next week??). At one point, I'm going to have to remember to buy new clothes...


Annnnd...this is for BCBG :)

Great pics of your furbaby!! Oh yeah, love the shoes too. Do you want to keep the rolandos?? I'm no help really cos I'd say keep them ;)

lilmissb said...

Oh and I forgot to say, so jealous of the melanzana alta damas. LOVE that colour *sigh*

BCBG said...

Oh no you did'nt!!!! girl! this is sooo sweet of you!! when will i EVER get a cat?? I just live my crazyness for cats through your blog!OMG they are sooo cute! ok i need to stop now...
also, I noticed on TPF that most of the gals out there that bought the maxi in bleu roi, also got in red, like you did!Look like the "pop" colors are in!
As for your shoe shopping, i would say no to the YSL (to weird looking in my opinion) and keep the rolandos!

what FP shoes are you waiting for? i can't remember if you told me but i have zwitterion and amino acids on my brain so it's all mushy right now :D

Hi T!! I'm still going back and forth on the Rolandos - I'm feeling pretty guilty abt how much I've been spending :( Buuuut I've been waiting for these to go on sale for the longest time!! Argh..I dont know...

LOL...is that what that color is called?? I've just been referring to it as "plum"...hehehe

BCBG: LOL!! Yup, I made Libby and Olivia pose just for you :) Yea, most Chanel fanatics went crazy over the 10C colors and most ended up getting both the red and blue since these were two shades that had been long sought after.

Deb: The python!! I called Horatio again yesterday and I think she messed up on my email address cus she said I should've been getting updates from UPS. In any case, she said its scheduled to be delivered tomorrow before noon :)

Irene said...

OMG~ i love those lanvinnsssssss

MUST KEEEEEP!

litlstrawberry said...

Ah. I like the Chloe wedge too. Very chic and practical and elegant...

Oh, you know, the YSL heels is very very LONG looking from the sides and I have to say it would flatter a TALLER woman better.

Girl, you gone NUTS, seriously. I would think you probably wear two or 3 different shoes a day. hahah.. again, all the heels you bought are gorgeous..especially the Lanvin.

ms Givens said...

Fabulous shoes. I love the Chloe because I love wedges and buckles.

Purse Addict said...

Irene: YAH, ME TOO!!! They come with an ankle strap but I'll probably be going without it for most of the time.

Rachel: I totally agree with you abt the YSL booties. I think I liked them in stores cus I had leggings on but when I tried them on at home, they weren't as cute. They look great on you though!!

Ms Givens: Thank you!! I love the Chloe wedges cus they're so cute :) The buckle reminds me of Puritans for some reason...LOL

cheeky_deb said...

OH YEAH!!! LOL, I told you my brain was mushy...hehehe...

Hi! Love your blog! I would return the rogue metal Rolandos because I prefer the Biancas. If they were both in my closet I can see myself always pulling the Biancas and the Rolandos probably will collect dust since they are the same color... I would also return the Chloe wedges... Would look great on your mom though... Lanvins are nice and great find on the Altadamas!!! Keep posting please!!!

Heather said...

self control is so overrated, LOL.

love your new purchases, especially those lanvis and the ADs. i can't wait to see photos of the blue roi... ughh I DIE!

Purse Addict said...

Anonymous: So glad you like my blog!! Hehehe...i've actually decided to keep the rolandos :P I figured I would always miss them if I was to return them. The Chloes were on my return list for a quick minute but then they're way too comfy!!

Heather: I agree...HAHA. I actually checked myself into the CCLO yesterday..we'll see how long that lasts... BTW, I posted the bleu roi a while back :)
