man, where is everyone?

I am trying to work from home today, but get easily distracted.  For example, H bought movie tickets from Fandango, and they sent him a $10 gift certificate to ShoeBuy.  Never used the site, but figured I might as well see what I can get (although only if it is a good deal - I'm not just going to buy an $80 shoe for no reason to use the deal).  This is the only shoe I have seen so far that I like (the only filter I'm using is high heel).  I normally only like wedges if there is absolutely no platform, but the top part of the shoe is kind of cute and it isn't terribly expensive.  Thoughts?  Oh, and the deal expires today!

ETA: I think I'm going to start looking at flat sandals now too...

Re: man, where is everyone?

  • I think they're pretty cute, however I used to have a pair of birdcage style sandals like that and they killed my feet. The cage part that goes around my toes would cut into the sides of my feet and my toes. I ended up with crazy blisters. I think I only wore them a few times before I got rid of them.

    hmm, good to know.  I ended up also finding some cute flats I may just get to be 'safe'.  

    what are you up to today?

    This. I put all of you through my shoe saga, so it's only fair! 

     

     

  • So, I emailed H like 10 pairs of shoes to tell me what he thought.  He forgot and as we were falling asleep I remembered.  Poor guy, he got up to look at them (he gets up at 4am to study) and told me he liked the Kenneth Cole ones the best and said they were also the best deal (yes, apparently he did a little 'background check' on them at other sites).  So I got them and we'll see.  If I don't like them, I'll just return and probably won't get anything else.  I ended up liking some of the flats, but I just don't feel like flat sandals with nothing on them are worth $30. 

    PS husky sent me the PERFECT wedge shoe...!!  I just don't have $90 to spend on shoes right now :-/  being a poor student sucks!

  • I'm here, I just got back yesterday from visiting my family up in Canada. Now that I'm done working in the greenhouse I plan to be checking in more during the day than I have been for the last few months as well!
