If you know me at all, then you know that I have a fetish for shoes. I love them! All shades of color, different textures, heels or no heels. It really doesn't matter. Well, actually at only 5'3" I definitely want, and need heels!
So imagine this, it is Tuesday and I am finally thinking about my outfit for the upcoming Google christmas party on Friday. This is easy as I have loads of clothes, but what about the shoes. For all my love of shoes, I must admit that I do not own a decent pair of black evening shoes. Can you believe it? Actually, I am lying as I did buy a cute pair of Ann Klein stilettos with a sexy 3" inch heel many months ago. They would be perfect, except that they had an unfortunate encounter with my Zoe, while she was still going through the puppy chewing stage. Yes, my bad, but they were horrendously uncomfortable, so much so that a couple of my toes were numb for a whole day after wearing them. In hindsight, Zoe was definitely doing me in devouring them.
After deciding that I really needed to buy a pair of shoes, and admitting to the fact that I have little time to venture out to the shopping malls, I decided to hit the online shops. Now where else could I find an appropriate pair of shoes (for any occasion) but through Zappos.com. Well, it took me all but 5 minutes to find these gorgeous black satin shoes and for a mere $124 with free overnight shipping, I didn't have to break the bank. Of course, my main concern was the 4" heel and whether the shoes themselves would be comfortable enough to endure the festivities associated with a Google party. I decided to be adventurous and just order them, and by noon the following day I had these gems in my sweaty little palms. As I sat at my desk to try on my shoes, I very much felt like a modern day Cinderella who had just found the perfect pair of shoes. So perfect, in fact, that it is almost impossible to detect that I am balancing on a 4" heel, but we'll see how well I manage after a few cosmopolitans?
