Be My Valentino

Marilyn Monroe sure knows what she was talking about when she said, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world,” ’cause I sure feel powerful when I can finally reach for a cup in the kitchen cabinets, the microwave that’s conveniently located on top of the fridge, the cereal box on a high shelf somewhere and other randomness without having to look for a stool. Thank you high heels, what would life be like without you?

Aren’t these babies lovely? After trying them on and realizing they weren’t my size, my WWICHD (want-what-I-can’t-have disorder) kicked in and I went on a crazy rampage in search for them. I’ll try to spare you the details of my nutty frenzy…in short I called every NM in the U.S. frankly because I didn’t trust the system, and as luck would have it one pair finally popped up. It was a very kind person in Hawaii who rather wear flip flops than high heels that decided to pass these up.

So here they are, the last size 5 resting atop a little red box on my bedroom floor that I watched go to bed the first night they came home….Ok, I didn’t really do that but I did pull it out and tried it on about 18 times! Haha, I hope I’m not alone here…Ladies, do you have any funny/crazy shoe stories?
