Gladiator Shoes

From time to time, I become obsessed with shoes and must buy them. Recently, I realized that I am no longer satisfied with just wearing flip flips all summer. I've grown up (really!) and want something more sophisticated to wear. So I've been searching for my shoe style. When I was in Hawaii, I was staring at everyone's feet. Like I said, I was searching. I was a girl on a mission. And the shoes that caught my eye the most were gladiators shoes, especially in silver or gold. But I don't want the really really strappy ones. I believe less is always more. Also, even though I think silver and gold look great, I need to ease myself into it. I'll stick with black for now.

We went to the mall in Oahu, and I found this really cute pair at Macy's (similar to the one pictured). But I just wasn't sure about it. So I convinced myself out of buying them. I thought maybe it was too trendy and I won't wear it for very long. Then, I immediately regretted not buying it. I became obsessed. I tried two different Macy's, and they didn't have it. And I checked on macys.com and couldn't find it there. I don't know the brand or anything because I really was just going to forget about it. Then today, I checked dsw.com, and they have something exactly like it! Jackpot! So I ordered it. I hope it is as nice as I remembered. Hehe.

Isn't the internet a wonderful thing? I lost a bracelet and it wasn't in the stores anymore, so I searched forever and eva and finally found it. Oh, the things that make us girls happy :o)

Yeah, I am really happy! Plus it is cheaper than at Macy's. Did you ever buy the pair you liked?

hey! what's wrong with wearing flip flops all summer??? it's just easier!! and you're the one who got me started on them....

hHm.. I'll have to see how they look on you before i make a consensus, but i tend to like gladiator sandals with straps more toward your toes because the ones with the straps up higher tend to shorten the look of regular to short length legs.

Sigh, I should be a stylist.

Ahh! Sorry I wasn't available during your fashion crisis! I love you!

Haha!! Kim, don't get me wrong. I still love flip flops...just not the best option for work.

Laura, I agree with your analysis. But remember too strappy on top is not a good look for my particular feet. Sigh...

Kim said...
