I just saw a pair of darling strappy sandals. Very dark neutral brown, perfect height (3 1/2 inches), fit like a glove etc. Classic design, so not trendy, KWIM? Part of me REALLY wants to get them... Did i mention that they're comfy? The other part of me thinks that maybe $900 for a pair of shoes migh be too much! *sigh* I usually spend between $300-500 on footwear (HB croc boots were an exception - plus they were on sale ). I should be saving my $$$ for my SO but this pair is surprisingly just so appealing. They can replace a pair of Manolos that are just too thin for words. My darling SA kindly suggested having the cobbler possibly thicken the sole but I'm leaning towards donating them to charity. The Hermes sandals are far more neutral & classic. Decisions, decisions... P.S. If you're wondering if I need them, the answer is yes & no. Yes I need them cuz their Manolo alternate is getting absolutely no daylight due to its very thin sole and color scheme. Plus they'd give my other shoes a break. No, I don't need them because I still have my sandals... (even though I don't wear them anymore) And I should be saving my $$$. No chance of them going on sale, eh? LOL.
