It all started yesterday. On the way to DBF's I stopped on Walnut Street to check out one of my favorite shops, Joan Shepp. They are great there and also have a fun selection of CLs. Coral leather simples stick out in my mind. Also adorable tri colored (grey, light blue and purple) Balenciaga flats! I didn't get anything but also headed to Barneys COOP, nothing there. After Barney's I decided I would stop at Saks. Found adorable Lanvin flats with a huge black satin bow but none in my size. Instead found these cute black velvet Miu Miu flats with a huge oversize bow, they had them in my size so I scored those!
I attempted to do some Christmas shopping today and failed horribly.
I met up with with my tpf friend sjunky13 at Neiman's, she did some shopping and I picked up my COH jeans (I dropped them off last weekend to be tailored). I returned a pair of Jimmy Choo flats that were too big. Had a sephora coupon so I did a little shopping, picked up some Bliss body butter lite and Fekkai glossing spray.
Decided to stop at the sanrio store and they had 35th Anniversary Tokidoki for Hello Kitty stuff. Saw this laptop case and had to buy it!
Finally I attempted to get DBF's present, a 500GB Lacie harddrive for his computer at the Apple store but of course it's an item they only have online so that squashed that idea. I will have to order online soon, free shipping!
I have no idea what that word means but it's the only way to express my excitement for the most fabulous ankle boots that are on their way to me. After all my diligent sleuthing, calling around, calling around more, and stressing. I have finally gotten my hands on the Christian Louboutin Nitoinimoi Ankle Boots!! Granted they are in a 1/2 size smaller than I preferred I think I can make these babies work. I know generally these boots run TTS but with the weird sizing this season I am hoping and praying it will work in my favor and I can rock them.
I thought I had secured myself a pair last night from the Barneys in LV, the SA told me he would call me today and let me know. He called with news while I was at lunch. The news was bad. The shoes were actually a 37 in the 38.5 box. 37 = no go. He tried to find me another pair but came up with nothing. I sulked around at work today and e-mailed a few stores thinking I would settle for black. Nordies was out, Saks only had all leather at 30% off, NM didn't carry them and I didn't call boutiques because I need to be able to return them if they don't fit/look good. I thought I might settle for not getting any and then after dinner I decided to take matters into my own hands. I started from the top of the Barney's store list. Madison said they would need the number to check, I didn't have it so the SA said he would look it up, check and call me back. Called Scottsdale and they didn't order the blue but the SA said he saw black in the system in a 38 but that it was on sale? Vegas said black was full price? So confused now. Anyway.... as soon as I hung up with Scottsdale David from Madison called and said he found me a 38! And there you have it! Persistence pays off ;-)
