I am a shoe person.
At one point I was considering paying more for my wedding shoes than I paid for my wedding dress.
I would rather have shoes than clothes.
Although then I have to deal with the fact that I can’t go around naked.
Let me restate that.
I love to buy shoes more than I love to buy clothes.
Anyway I had four stipulations for wedding shoes.
- Wedge heel
- Not white.
- Under $200.
I looked everywhere! And I mean everywhere.
I finally settled on Michael Kors Vivian Slingback Heels in Nude from endless.com for $195.
And then I embellished them with these pearl bow clips from etsy.com store, Gracefully Girly.
I was so pleased with how they turned out.
Stream-lined and classy.
Then I had buyer’s remorse that I had spent over $200 on shoes once I added in the $28 bows.
So for the last three weeks I have been in search for a look-alike shoes or at least a decent coupon code for the shoes I had already purchased but to no avail.
I had decided to give up.
I only had four more days before I could return them for a refund anyway.
Last night I ran into Belks to make a quick return. Literally, ran. It was raining cats and dogs. (that is such a strange saying)
I rushed through the shoe department as my usual practice, just to glance at the clearance shoes.
And there they were.
My wedding shoes.
The same ones I had ordered from endless.com for $195.
Size 6 1/2
And that, people, is why I love to shop.
