The Pair That Got Away



Oooooh am I happy! The mailman brought these beauties to me last week. I saw them at Christmas time at the San Francisco Anthropologie and almost bought them but decided to stick to my list. I wanted them so much that I called two weeks later and they were long gone. I've been checking eBay ever since in hopes of finding someone with the reverse problem, someone who bought them and wished they hadn't. Finally there was one pair, and in my size too. Ooh child it was a bitter battle at the end with me placing a final bid with 3 seconds to spare. I was elated but I did have a moment of silence for the unlucky bidder that didn't get these.

I'm happy now.

What adorable shoes! I know the feeling of waiting until the very end to bid on an item. I accidentally hit Confirm Bid 3 min. before the end of the auction & needless to say I paid $15 more than I wanted to, but at least I got the item!

Those are so pretti. I love the color. You must get a handbag to match those shoes. You can dress em up or down. Esp with the stitching of some denim jeans.


xoxo Birens Boo!
