Manolo Blahnik (in grey)
Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes. I wasn't really planning to post but today happened and I have to own up to it. I have a little problem twice a year when I get a nice little email about the Bergdorfs shoe sale and find an excuse to wonder in and then everything falls apart. Because you all know that I never spend a lot on anything unless it's a good deal and I can rationalize away the guilt. So when a nice gentleman named Bill found the only fresh pair in my size I had to make an exception and act fast. If not for me then for Carrie who always believed these were an urban shoe myth so I had to prove that they do, in fact, exist. Throw in a scalloped edge and someone who walked by and said, 'why are you even contemplating those?' and next thing you know Bill was handing me a bag and a receipt. Let the rationalizing begin. For the record, I walked home (not in these shoes obviously) so I did save on cab fare.
Also, this is my new rug! I ordered it from Serena & Lily and it said it was backordered till February and then one day it showed up on my doorstep. It's hemp with bits of suede and metallic leather woven through and so reasonably priced for the 5 x7. Rugs are usually so expensive!! I mean geez when I saw this one I almost lost it because it was not 1,000 dollars.
