I wish I liked it

Shopping that is..

I think I would love it if I had $.

Today I was looking for reasonably priced black slingbacks, closed toe, with a kitten heel. You would have thought I was looking for the holy grail. I need a sling back, because I have teeny narrow heels. They do not like to stay in shoes.

I also live in a "not shopping mecca" area of the United States.

I also do not buy shoes online as a rule...I like to try them on. I have high arches, and narrow heels. I have a devil of a time finding shoes...

I could find nothing with a closed toe, in what I wanted. Not one.

I settled on a pair of Etienne Aigner open toe slingbacks at famous footwear and bought a pair in tan as well. $29.50 for 2 pairs of shoes. When I got home I threw my beloved pair of black pointy slingblacks with a cute buckle in the trash...

I adore these....but really that kind of scratch for shoes, I do not have. Maybe they will go on sale?

oh and this skirt is to die for!

Keep an eye on e-bay or some other sites (rue la la) comes to mind for your dream shoes at a more reasonable price. They are gorgeous and would probably last forever!

Zappos! I'm pretty sure they have free shipping both ways, so that makes trying them on super-easy. And their return process is great, I've never had any issues with them refunding my money.
