The masses have spoken. Y’all really like my Blogger Date Night shoes :
I bought these last summer (June?) from the Bakers in the mall across the street from our apartment. They were a total impulse buy – marked down a hundred times to $20-something I think, so I had to have them. I KNOW. High five!
I do get compliments on these shoes everytime I wear them (which is like, once every 4 months). No matter how bitchy I look or stained my shirt is, without fail at least one person will come up and say they
think I could knock Rachel Zoe off the star-stylist podium … like myshoes.
True story : A woman stuck her head out her car window at a red light and yelled to me as I was crossing the street in Carlsbad once asking where they were from. I’m guessing she was hoping to distract me and when I got ran over by oncoming traffic she could jump out and snatch them straight off my dead feet.
I do have to wonder though if maybe y’all were just a little caught off-guard and that’s what spurred all this interest in my footwear. Like the shock-value of not seeing me look like an un-showered, sweaty serial killer threw you into some weird frenzy :
So I told you all this and drummed up all this hype, annnnnddddd SORRY, you can’t get them anymore. I just checked. Unless you wear an 8.5 and want to pay $500 for my pair. (Just forget what I told you about how much I paid for them...)
It looks like Chinese Laundry has a few pairs of the same style, but not this color. If you’re in the market for some orange snakeskin hooker heels though, throw “Chinese Laundry New Bootsy” into a Google Shopping search. Just don’t buy those silver ones listed on ebay. I want them.
This is kind of fun – talking about shoes and girly stuff. Maybe I should try it more often…
