I know I left you with a bit of a teaser last week with the Louboutins and I’m going to make you wait a little bit longer You see, I want to pair them with some more fabulous than what was included in last week’s wear.
Two other things appear in this version of Shoes-day: my bestie (no surprise there) and blonde hair. Bare with me on this…I was born blonde and in the summer, I’d get sunkissed streaks. In the winter, it tended towards a rather unfortunate shade of light brown, but it somehow worked. Very early on I started getting my hair highlighted (my Mom was best friend’s with a Spa owner so it was like playing dress up, but with hair). Periodically I’d “go dark” for about 3-4 months at a time, but inevitably returned to my, err, roots, sorta Then late 2009 I went brown again…and loved it. The response was favorable from others too =) But brown is a lot of upkeep if it’s darker than your normal hair color (and if you seem to be getting a pesky grey or two or ten..grr).
Okay, back to blonde-ish once again. I did the first go round after sitting in a chair for over 4 hours in August. Torture really. Then I had another appointment on Saturday. I specifically said that I didn’t want to go too blonde and to go heavy on the low-lights. But my hair certainly has a mind of its own and was not playing by the rules. I ended up quite a bit blonder than I wanted to go. Pooey.
Let’s just get to the shoes then, huh?
Just in time for Fall fashion, it’s booties! Gotta love ‘em. And want to know what else? Both pair were under $30! Yep, bestie A and I like our trends to come cheap at times so we have no shame testing out the latest fashions cheap-style before making a more costly investment. Both these shoes were purchased at the end of 2008 (or early 2009?) from either GoJane.com or Alloy.com (don’t remember!). Naava is not wearing any booties
A’s are on the left in grey and mine are on the right in taupe. Both are size 7.5. As for comfort, overall, they’re okay. Mine have somewhat of a weird incline, but now that I’ve broken them in (after a whopping wear of maybe 4 times total), they mold rather nicely.
I’m digging the bootie trend and have invested in some other pairs which will likely make an appearance
