I’m not a shoe girl. I’m sure I’ve mentioned that. I wear heels to work, but I couldn’t possibly care less about having a particular brand or designer. Unless they’re Chuck Taylors, I mean. Of which I have many pairs.
Having said that, when I was selling my house last year, I saw these and fell in love.
Naughty Monkey makes a lot of styles that have a 40s edge that I really love, but those in particular just grabbed me. Since I had moved out of the house and was paying rent and mortgage (and utilities for both) at the same time, I couldn’t really justify spending $100 on shoes, but I decided that I’d buy them when I sold the house.
You know where this is going. Of course my size was sold out when I sold the house, duh. So I kept the link at zappos and looked at them once in a while, and signed up there and at amazon, in case someone returned a pair. But that was months ago.
And then I found them on ebay last week. New. In box. For 20 bucks. And they’re gorgeous.
And now I need them in more colors…
