I found out there is a Saks ECG in a couple of weeks which is great because there are 2 shoes I really want. I can only get one right now though I am concerned that the one I can't get will sell out, but getting both is not an option right now. The first pair are Manolo d'orsays. They are this same shoe, except in brown. http://www.bergdorfgoodman.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod23610022&parentId=cat242904&masterId=cat50001&index=8&cmCat=cat000000cat200648cat203100cat203102cat50001cat242904 The pros would be the heel is low enough I can wear them on the weekends as well as at work. I love the color, they are comfortable and I love the style. There are really no cons. The second pair are Dior shoe boots. I these. They are comfortable. http://www.bergdorfgoodman.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod20140006&parentId=cat243320&masterId=cat225000&index=1&cmCat=cat000000cat200648cat203100cat203102cat225000cat243320 The pros is that they are gorgeous and they are patent leather. I am have not been a big logo person with my shoes and I debated if I should wear shoes with so obvious a logo. Also, I don't think the boots would be quite as versatile. I really want both and I am concerned that they will sell out before I can get the second pair next month. Saks on line has already sold out of the Dior boots (which is why I had to use Berdorf's link ). I was at the Dior boutique in my area last week and they said they had just received them so I am a little more confident that I may still be able to get the shoes in September. The Saks where I saw the Manolos last month was already out of my size, but the SA I am working with now says she should be able to get them. Just fyi, I am a mom, I have an infant and an older child and will be going back to work full time next month. I have to dress on the classic/conservative side at work, but I like to add edgy touches. People usually think I am about 10 yrs younger than I am (ie they think I am still in my 30's). I know this was long-winded, sorry.
