shoe coma


three pairs of shoes. one prada. one chanel. one alaia.

no, this is not a typo. the alaia's were originally three. thousand. three. hundred. dollahs.

pick me up off the floor now!

okay: here's the clincher. i got all. three. pairs. for the sum of one hundred feety dollahs. at marshalls. yeah. you heard that right. they were $49.99 each. my friend mary ann and i were literally whispering in the corner of marshalls so as not to set off a feeding frenzy. because the fact of the matter was, NO ONE knew about this little treasure trove. all these women were blithely going about their shopping, completely immune to the fact that fifty pairs of bergdorf-goodman leftovers were sitting mutely in boxes right under their very noses.

What a total SCORE!! And not only a deal, but they're SO PRETTY!

rachel said...

DAMN.

So jealous.

Every time I go there, all they have are Coach shoes to die for that are not my size and not even close enough in size to justify stuffing toes with cotton balls, buying insoles, squeezing my feet into them anyway, or sawing of a few toes.
