Remember the beautiful shoes? I first fell for them on January 7th when TLo posted this Kate Spade ad on their blog. It was the first time I ever truly, really wanted something designer, and I remember going back to stare at the shoes on Ms. Bryce Dallas Howard's feet several times that day. Then, on January 20th, a reader sent me a link to the very same shoes because their color was named "Biscuit" and I am the mother of a Biscuit. THEN, a few days later, another reader sent me a $50 discount code- in the month of my birth, on the day I got my bonus, two weeks before Valentine's Day, and within a year of my not taking any unpaid maternity leave.
So I bought them.
Twelve hours later they had sold out of my size.
The estimated delivery date was February 1st, an appointment I immediately entered into my work and personal calendars. I obsessively tracked my shoes until they got stuck in Dallas for EIGHT days because of a few ice cubes on the ground. They finally arrived in my office on the 9th.
Aren't they gorgeous?
I'm wearing them to work tomorrow with jeans and a coral belted jacket for good luck during my year-end evaluation.
It'll be like having happy little rainbows trail behind me everywhere I go.
We're going to be so happy together.
Friday, 8 a.m. Update: 24 degrees is way too cold for the short-sleeved coral jacket, so I found a coral top with a pretty, detailed neckline and a tan corduroy blazer. Off to work I go!
It's going to be a fabulous day.
