I HEART Shoes!!

Have I ever told you that I LOOOOOOVE cute shoes? Especially cute heels? Well, I do.

So here's the deal...my baby brother's getting married on Thursday. I had to get a new dress, so OBVIOUSLY I have to get some new shoes, right? Actually, I really did need a new pair. All my black heels are looking pretty beat up and that's not okay for a wedding, ya know?

Soooo I was on the hunt! I always go look at Forever Young whenever I'm at the mall (which isn't very often these days!), because I think they have the stinkin' cutest shoes. But it's never at a time when I have new shoes in the budget, so I just look and admire. I don't really have new shoes in the budget now, but it's a wedding, right?

So today I eagerly went in knowing I would be able to buy something. I was immediately greeted by a bubbly size 0 18-year-old. I swear you have to be size 0 to work there, because I have never seen any normal size person in there.
Anyway, she says "Do you know about our sales going on?"
Me: "No, please tell me."
Size 0: "All our boots are 50% off and everything else is buy one get one 50% off."
Me: "Fantastic, I'm sooo buying 2 pair!"
I knew I needed black for the wedding, so I picked 2 fabulous pairs. Size 0 got them in my size, and I tried them both on. I couldn't decide...they were both so fabulous! So, I know you're just dying to know how I finally made my decision and what it was.

I decided to buy the pair that only came in black for the wedding. AND the other pair came in a variety of colors. So I picked hot pink! Now I know you're wondering if I have anything that will go with a pair of hot pink heels. NOPE! I don't. Here's what I decided:

The hot pink heels are definitely those kind of shoes that you buy the shoe, then have to buy an outfit specifically to go with those shoes! I've never done that of course, BUT... these shoes are my reward shoes. When I reach my goal weight - I will get to buy a new outfit in my new size to match my new hot pink heels! Isn't that the best idea? I thought so. Do ya wanna see 'em?
The Wedding Shoes
The REWARD shoes!Do you love them? They look kinda fuschia in the picture, at least on my monitor, but they really are a true hot pink!

Holy CATS - them are some SHOES! I like the black ones...I think the pink is throwing my off on the other ones though. I wanna see your dress!

I have shoe envy! I am a recovering shoe junkie. I havent bought heels in ages! Someday I vow to buy more, maybe when some more weight comes off too

momma said...

love both of the shoes! i have plenty of outfits for those pink shoes!! :)

Tanielle said...

Just to clarify things I know there are not yellow shoes in Xazmin's pics, but she said the pink ones come in bright yellow too, my favorite color!!! Sorry X to take up comment space, I just realized I can see that the second shoes are pink...and none of them are yellow!:-)

Wow! You must have some foot super powers! I could never a) pull this off with any outfit even if I bought one and b) wear these longer than 5 minutes...ouch!

I do have to admit, however, these are some cute shoes...just wish they would work for me! Can't wait to see the dress that you might find to go with the pink ones. Congrats on making the changes to get to your goal weight.

Those are cute. A million times too high for me and my short hubby but very cute!

Sara said...

I also love shoes, and am having a case of shoe envy for two reasons
one i love those shoes, both pairs
and two
you can actually walk in them, I cant wear heels, I had a bad foot injury and have to be careful. If I bought shoes with heels, I would only be able to carry them, so its flats for me!

I cant wait to see the outfit that goes with the pink shoes, your going to look hot!

Have a great day
Sara

That Girl said...

I'm with Heidi, you must be super woman to wear those shoes. I would break my ankle. You will look hot though!

gramee said...

i must be a really old gramee.. because i would NEVER be able to wear the either pair for even 5 minuets! i can feel a bunion coming just thinking about it!
but dang they are cute!
i do have just the outfit to wear the pink ones with!

Noah's Mommy said...

both are so very yummy....and you totally picked one of the hottest colors for Spring...I love my 80's throw back hot pick...so Barbie isn't it?

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

VERY cute! I have a pair of hot pink pumps that I got a few years ago...they look awesome when I wear all black with some pink drop earrings and a matching bracelet. I just went to Payless (*Blush*) on Saturday---started shopping there occasionally after the kids came along, and you can find some cute stuff. I'll have to post about it on my blog. :)

Yaya said...

Kimm at Reinvented said...

My friend, I just LOVE your reasoning skills! :) Both pairs are adorable, I would love to wear heels, but then I'd be, like, over 6 feet tall.

Maggie said...

Amy said...

I love the pink shoe. You should wear that one instead. I went on a hunt for a shoe. I am in a wedding in May. But no one seems to like it. I may post about it.

Heather @ Sugarplum Garters said...

Cassie said...

Wow! I love them! I could never wear them (I still can't walk in heels, I'd break my neck!) but I bet they look amazing on you!
