Feast your eyes - this doesn't happen often - yes folks, I BOUGHT SHOES. TWO pairs, no less. Upping my grand shoe count from 3 pairs to 5!
These are for my brother Ben's wedding which is only in about 3 weeks (yikes! I've got to move house before then!) ...
I bought these at the FSW in Phillip, so both were reduced price. I needed something strappy but comfortable for the wedding and reception... man, who designs fancy footwear? Have they never heard of arch support?! Took me about an hour, but eventually I settled on these Sandlers - Delta, reduced from $89.95 to $59.00. Black. Leather uppers (what there is of them!).
Not very high heels, but I honestly couldn't find anything higher that was comfortable. Another customer said they have kitten heels, but I don't know if that's right - you shoes-ey ladies (you know who I mean, Rose Red!), can you enlighten me?
And I also needed some informal but nice sandals, to wear to the family-only lunch at my future sister-in-law's family home (and yes, they're incredibly wealthy, so I don't want to look like a slob in my broken down Homy Peds!). This family lunch will be on the day after the wedding, at their house on the Brisbane River - we have the options of fishing and swimming... oooooh errrrh... !
These are BareTraps - hey Bells, they're named after your sister - Adele. Reduced from $69.95 to $59.00. Black leather tops (there was a choice of black - goes with lots; white - gets grubby; or hot pink - SO not me). A little arch support and nice cushy soles. Not too high, wedge heel.
Now we just need to get some shoes for Dotter, and we'll be all set!
Lily is doing really well on the new heart med, she's looking pretty chipper and happy - thank goodness! Don't know how long this will last, but we're enjoying every extra day we have with her :)
Jejune's Day is going nicely - wandered around the Tuggers Hyperdome this morning to get a feel for the place (it will be our new local shopping centre), then did the shoe shopping thing, and now it's time for some painting!
