My Heart Beat Just That Little Bit Faster
Cosmopolitan Shoes started their summer sale yesterday and well, the beach could wait. Choos at 50% off wait for no Carrie. Cosmopolitan is my kind of store. A handful of flats make way for a temple to four inches. And colour. And jewels. And designer. The shopgirls are bitchy and rude and barely bother acknowledging you unless you hand over a Black Amex.
I think it appeases the Shoe Gods if the first pair you try on is the one you love the most. There's no pressure afterwards. And love I did: a pair of Rudolph Menudier black high shine leather heels, with zippers all over the hem and the back heel, and a thin 3-odd inch heel with clear cube in the middle. Beautiful. And reduced to $200, so I also had the Bargain Gods on my side. I then saw a pair that made my heart melt. Dolce E Gabbana, leopard print fur with peep toe and thin dark brown heel. Beyond stunning. I almost cried when they didn't have my size and tried to fill my 39.5 foot into the 38.5 I was so desperate. They also had My Ultimate Pair Ever, the yellow rope Choos at 50% off, but half a size too big and the heel kept falling off. Nevermind, I was on cloud nine with my purchase.
To celebrate, as all shoe purchases should be, I had my favourite Thai takeaway and mango gelato and massive amounts of SATC Season 3. Perfect.
(And, like when girlfriends get their period at the same time, mum bought a pair of Furlas last night too).
