I have searched, searched, and searched everywhere for the perfect pair of shoes to go with my amazing dress. I was getting incredibly frustrated because it seemed like the perfect pair of shoes that I had been envisioning in my dreams was not actually a shoe that existed in the real world.
I have bought 10? 20? different pairs of shoes, looking for that illusive perfect shoe, a pretty blue shoe. And I’ve never really found any that I’ve really loved—well, that is, until now, maybe. I think I might have found a shoe that is so close to being perfect, yet so far.
The shoe is very reminiscent of another favorite shoe of mine, Badgley Mischka’s Randee, a gorgeous shoe that never came in blue, unfortunately.
What am I talking about? Badgley Mischka’s Cissy.
But this is the selling view:
It’s actually funny. I had seen the shoe in pink in Macy’s a while back and had thought, Oh, if only it came in blue, that would be the perfect shoe. Wandering around the interwebs recently, I stumbled across it in blue. I impulsively bought it thinking, well, I could always return it when it doesn’t look the same way in person.
The beginning and end of my career as a shoe model
Hive, I think I’m in love. It’s such a pretty, pretty shoe. Yet, I am hesitating, bees, and I need someone to talk some sense into my head. In fact, I put together a pros and cons list.
- The shoes are absolutely gorgeous. I love the color, I love the flower detailing, I love everything about how they look.
- I have not found a single other shoe that I have loved as much as this one, and I’m afraid I’m running out of time. I just haven’t really seen any other shoes that speak to me like these do.
- They are insanely uncomfortable.
- They are insanely expensive (but not completely-out-of-my-budget expensive…just double-what-I’ve-ever-spent-on-a-pair-of-shoes expensive).
So someone talk some sense into me. Should I just bite the bullet on this one? Is it worth it? Should I keep looking? Anyone know how to make them more comfortable or the best way to break them in?
