First, I checked all the upstairs and downstairs closets for a pair of summer, dressy sandals, one that I could wear to weddings and garden parties, something with heels but not too high... but nothing like my usual Birkenstocks either. As expected I found nothing to wear. The husband sighs and mutters what else is new.
Then I called the Tea Ladies and say that it is time to go shopping. R and H instantly say, "Let's go." They always do.
After 6 hours of non-stop shopping, with a short lunch in between, I came home with all kinds of shoes, EIGHT pairs, of them... in all colors... but not one single pair of the off-white heeled sandals, that I really, really needed and went looking for.
But look at what my Tea Ladies talked me into buying. It's all their fault, you know...
I wore these Lite Strides yesterday while I went to get tomato plants at the nursery, they really went quite well with my matching green sweater and jeans.
These red Studio Works slides were so comfortable, I had to have them!
I needed another red pair of shoes, right? These Lite Strides fit the bill!
I don't know why I bought these 9.2.5 pair... I don't buy these styles, but R & H do.
I used to wear these type of shoes, I confess, but that was ages ago, that was when Chanel was part of my style/ look. It's kind of dated now and too uncomfortable for me. It makes me think of polka dots and big hats at the horse races. But... I bought them anyway just in case we had to go to the horse races someday?
I don't buy blue shoes either... Blue Hawaiianas... "They're Italian Duckie, get them!" Guess who's a push-over?
These are more my speed... black Lite Strides. It would go with a lot of nice things in my closet. Even to funerals and wakes.
AND these RED Mootsies Tootsies... What was I thinking???
No wonder my closets are full and I have nothing to wear.
