sniffsniff

So after an egregious miscalculation, my damn Marc Jacobs beauties will NOT be adorning my feet this spring and summer. It's like crushing on a guy for weeks and weeks, and finally working up the nerve to at least SPEAK to him, and as you reach up, shakily to offer him flowers as a token of your affection, he informs you, awkwardly, that he is gay. OR perhaps that's my own mucked up version of what happened, lol.

Luckily, I'm not completely out of luck b/c I've found an angel who's agreed to take them off my hands. Thank you, fellow shoe-whore. Anyway, I've cheered myself with a couple of planned purchases. Anyone on the harem pant trend? I'm not sure I can pull it off, but I found a pair by Swedish designer Lovisa Burfitt via eBay (of course) that I think I'd like to purchase. Only one problem: based on the price, this would def be considered an 'investment' piece, and I'm not sure if a trendy item should be considered thus. Hmm...to splurge, or not to splurge...Got 23 hours to decide.

In other news:

This girl is so rad:



Jane of SeaOfShoes

Obviously, the name got my attention, but her style continues to uplift and inspire me every day. She's gorgeous.

I also came across this:

Awww..what happened with the MJ's? Seems like nothing could be bad enough to give up a fierce shoe deal!
I'm betting Alicia the one taking these off your hands--that picture looks a l'il too familiar...

LOL, yeah. the kicker: I saw them on ebay listed for like $200 more than I offered them to her for. That's a WHOLE 'nother pair of shoes, man! They're a little too short in the toe, somehow. They just don't fit me right and I can't find the next size up in this color. Oh well...

Does it kill you that Jane is 16? Cause it kills me that Jane is 16. LOL.
