I spend big money on shoes and boots but I settled for these Jessica Simpson (:shame booties. I thought they were fabulous for the money, a great throw away fashion. Plus Nordstroms Anniversary sale always makes me buy!! http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/2939992/0~6002289~6002290~2379990~2380029?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=2380029&P=1 Anyway to the PP; this is my answer to black patent for the upcoming fashion season. At least one option!
