I hope you are all enjoying my various posts from weeks past. I just wanted to check in with my readers. I'm still planning on outfits this week. It's been such a hectic few days in the city. I started a new job, have two more job opportunities that if pan out will be AWESOME and DREAMS-COME-TRUE jobs. So many things have happened so quickly since I last posted, which has made it difficult to get out and take photos. Not to mention that we had a HURRICANE (not literally, but) come through on Sunday. GROSS.
Just to leave you all with a taste of things to come, hopefully tomorrow, if not FRIDAY, some new shoes that have been added to my ever growing shoe collection:
ETIENNE AIGNER LOAFERS:
Turns out, I couldn't get them out of my mind. I mean, look at them? And a nice designer brand, practically brand new, and everything I was looking for in a LOAFER. And so, a week later, my hopes so HIGH I practically floated, I went to the Salvation Army to pick up my shoes. There they were, untouched, all mine. I was prepared to pay full price, it was a steal for these anyway. BUT I GOT LUCKY. They were half off. Can't beat $6.00.
THE STORY ABOUT THESE SHOES IS ALMOST AS GOOD AS THE LOAFERS, IF NOT BETTER. I had desperately wanted these boots last fall to tromp around the snow in. On BLACK FRIDAY they went on sale for $29.99, which felt worth it; you don't see boots like these every day.
TURNS OUT, I couldn't make it to the sales in time because the boots SOLD OUT. So I thought I had lost them forever. Fast forward to March, I decide to go to the mall with my family, something we don't normally ever do. I decided to check out the "NEW JCP", since they had just recently changed over their business model and image.
I THINK THOSE OF US WHO DIE OVER FASHION ARE A LITTLE BIT NUTS.
I GOT THESE STRAPY BLACK SANDALS A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO ON SALE. No great story about them, just that I wanted to add some new black sandals to my collection and the minimal straps really work for me right now.
THAT IS ALL. I PROMISE OUTFIT PHOTOS SOON. And some major, less elusive life updates. I just really don't want to jinx this one!
