I wasn't going to get the shoes. At the end of the day, they were just too expensive. A couple of weeks ago, I was sitting at my desk at work, just thinking about these shoes. Now before you start thinking about how crazy I am, for being really attached to shoes, I just want to express to you how visually appealing these shoes are to my eyes and brain. I, literally, have thought about them once a week since my decision a few months back, the decision to find different wedding shoes. So anyway, I emailed Brendan at Valentino and asked him if the shoes were perchance, still waiting for me... and they were. Not only were they in the boutique, but Brendan let me know that they had been marked down again and would be 60% off retail. Jigga what?
I basically started tearing up, got in my car and drove to the Boston Valentino boutique. For one, I should have dressed a little bit nicer to go into Valentino. Yoga pants may be comfortable but when a suited guard holds the door for you, you can really take a hard look at yourself and your appearance but I digress. When I saw the booties in person, the shoes that is, I fell in love hard. Would they fit on my feet? When something is meant to be, like these shoes were meant to be, of course they fit. In the end, I got my dream wedding shoes and at a fantastic discount... it turns out that my indecisiveness and the man's frugality contributed to the stars aligning and these shoes being a part of our big day this coming January. I love shoes.
It's a girl's prerogative to change her mind, am I right?
