The day I fell in love with a pair of shoes


I was browsing the shoe section at Kohl’s when I spotted a misplaced pair of heels on a shelf in front of me. It was just the one pair. They were black and super cute. I picked them up, realizing they weren’t my size. I liked them enough to look for more, so I started walking up and down the aisles. I had almost given up when I spotted them. It was quite the magical moment when I realized they had two pairs in my size. Unfortunately, the box said $69.99. I told myself I couldn’t rationalize a pair of $70 shoes. I wasn’t at Kohl’s for shoes. The more I stared at them, the more they called my name. Misty! Misty! Misty!

I decided to try them on. It would make me feel better if they didn’t fit, or looked ugly on my feet. And that, ladies, is when it happened. The shoes fit like a glove. The shoes were comfortable. Upon my feet, the shoes became the hottest pair of shoes ever. I took a picture, texted the best friend and told her I couldn’t buy the hottest pair of shoes ever. I told her I might cry. I knew she’d understand. With extreme sadness, I walked back to the shelf. That’s when I realized… The $69.99 pair of the hottest pair of shoes ever were ON SALE for $39.99. I texted the bestie as I hugged the box tightly to my chest, told her she could borrow them anytime and ran to the register as angels were singing. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! {A $40 pair of shoes is a STEAL when your best friend wears the same size. It’s really a win-win situation for everyone.}

Here is the picture of the hottest pair of shoes ever, that I took in the store with my trusty iPhone. They'll be making their debut at GIRL’S NIGHT OUT tonight!

I definitely have shoe envy! Envy over the steal and envy over the fact that you can wear hot shoes like that in the first place! Ever since I had to have my right ankle surgically put back together after a car crash...well lets just say heels and I aren't bffs anymore. :(

Very cute shoes but I'm doubting you when you say they are comfortable. They look like they would hurt after five minutes!

I love them! I'm sort of surprised that I'm a fan of Vera Wang stuff at Kohls. It's all so cute. (Doesn't hurt that my BFF is a manager there either).
