this is a sign

I’ve fallen in love.

With a shoe.

(Run with me here.)

Meet the object of my desire:

le sigh

I’ve admired the Stuart Weitzman “Alex” Espadrille Sandal ever since I saw Jennifer Aniston wearing them practically all last summer. They seem like those shoes you would wear constantly because they go with absolutely everything.

But alas. They cost $365. Not bad, considering what some celeb shoes cost. (cough cough, Christian Louboutins) But a bit much for me. Okay, a LOT much for me. I’ve been stalking Zappos watching the sales, but to no avail.

Then, look what I found. *cue angels singing*
The Fantasik by Steve Madden. On sale for $69 at Piperlime. IN MY SIZE.

And the Fashion Angels Rejoiced.

    Steve Madden always comes through in the end. I should really send him a fruitcake or something for all the times he’s solved a fashion emergency for me!
