Happy feet, happy me

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

I've heard the phrase thrown around "Happy wife, happy life." I much more of a fan of "Happy feet, happy me." I guess that's why they call me Mrs. Stiletto.

Anyway, last summer I was on a hunt for nude pumps. I ended up buying a pair that I like and I've gotten a lot of wear out of them. They're pretty basic: rounded toe, medium heel height, go with everything. Fine, fine, fine.

This past weekend I was hunting furiously for a fun dress to wear out while in New York at the end of the month. I came across this gorgeous beauty from J. Crew and swooned so hard, I bought it immediately. Keep in mind that it's non-returnable and I had to completely guess on the size, since I don't shop at J. Crew very often. However, when I do shop at J. Crew I've been known to buy things on a hope and prayer that they'll fit.

This frock is currently with Mr. UPS on its way to me, but I'll keep you posted on just how fabulous it is in person. And, if it doesn't fit, I'll either be eating a lot or working out like crazy over the next two weeks.

So where was I? Ah yes, nude pumps. So after I bought the dress, I decided I needed some new shoes to go with it. Obviously. And they needed to have a bit of a vintage feel to go with the dress. Not finding what I wanted (more specifically, not finding what I wanted within budget), I checked out that blog post from last summer and remembered how much I loved the Daniblack "Jacky" with the sweet scallops. But I didn't love them enough at the $130 price tag.

One quick Google search later, I found that they were still listed on every web site at $130 except for 6pm.com, which always has fabulous deals! My eyes bugged out when I saw $46.74 plus shipping, available in my size. All I had to do was click a few buttons and these babies were mine.

Have you picked yourself up off the floor yet? If you have, get thee to 6pm.com and find yourself a swoon-worthy bargain*.

I bought these immediately on Saturday night (yes, this is what I did on Saturday night, don't judge) and now it's Tuesday afternoon and these babies just arrived and have found a loving home on my feet. The fit is amazing, they're incredibly comfortable, and they're a little bit sweet and a little bit sassy.

Say it with me this time: happy feet, happy me!

*Please note: 6pm.com did not sponsor this post in any way, shape or form. They just continue to amaze me with their super fantastic deals.

Great shoes AND amazing dress!!

Also, just FYI, you can return a Final Sale item to a JCrew store for store credit at the lowest sale price, just tell them you don't have the receipt... Not necessarily ideal but better than having something in your closet that doesn't fit, at least you can pick out something else if the dress is a no-go!
