Take THAT - On misconceptions, shoes, free things, and thank you...

When I was fifteen, I had a bully inform me that I'd never be able to wear heeled shoes without my feet falling off because I had D-I-A-beeedddeeesss (yes that's how he said it, the idiot) Even then, I knew not to try to inform those who were that ignorant - so I let it go.

But my obession with having shoes - of all kinds - and with wearing heels - just grew and grew from that day forward. It was my defining foot moment. Maybe other women out there had a moment like that - when you knew that you were destined to own more shoes than you could ever, ever need.

Most of my friends know about my shoe fetish. And recently, one of them, made at least one wild dream come true. Read: designer!! Famous designer!!

The shoe fairy presented me with these three pairs of shoes (well one pair of boots, two pairs of shoes) And yes, readers, one of those shoe soles says "Prada" - GAHHHH! Prada shoes - $600 shoes - for FREE - GAHHHH! They are all gorgeous.

So, thank you, Lil. You are truly the greatest. And my feet love you for proving that bully wrong. Kisses and hugs galore come your way in my imagination. Now, fly here, so I can do it for real.

Dude, those first pumps are totally awesome. LOVE THEM. And I can see you rocking these with signature style.

YAY!

I love them all. PRADA!?! What a lovely shoe fairy you have! I am the same way about my shoes, diabetes will not stop this girl from wearing any pair of shoes(well within reason that is).

Colleen said...

You are going to look great! Of course, we'll need photos.

Hannah said...

The shoe fabulousness if OUT OF CONTROL! Adorable. :)

I'm not nuts about the Prada shoes, but those houndstooth pumps are fanTAStic! The boots are cool, too.

I, too, love, love, LOVE shoes, although my footwear these days is of the slightly more sensible variety. I still lust after heels and oh, I do love me a peep toe pump. My secret lust is for some Christian Louboutin shoes....I drool over those on a regular basis.

Donna said...

I love those boots!

Jeff said...

You're stepping in some style!!

K - They are all so wonderful... Now if they would just arrive. Damn UPS man - he's jealous because he's got to wear brown. Every. Day. So he's holding up my package. That's my theory, anyway.

Jillian - PRADA!!!!! Freakin. Prada. Lil is the best. She works at a great place that gets all sorts of things - it's just they're not usually in my size. I have little feets...

Colleen - Photos. When they arrive. For sure.

Hannah - It is OOC!!!!! I am entirely too happy about these particular material possessions.

Julia - I think I'm just pleased that they're Prada - who knows. Maybe I'll be able to consign them and get something even more fabulous... And Louboutin - give me some red sole... Lust. Shoe lust. The worst.

Donna - They're from Frye (I think that might be obvious), but I'm thrilled about them. I don't own any really good winter-ish boots that have style... Now I've got some!

Jeff - Thanks!!! So excited. :)
