I'm sure I'm not the only one who indulges in a little retail therapy for a case of the blues. I generally prefer instantaneous gratification, so I avoid online shopping when I'm feeling bluesy. Plus, I tend to purchase more because stuff just isn't real until it's in my hot little hands.
But for these Diane Von Furstenberg Luna sandals, I broke my cardinal rule...I bought online. I couldn't pass up these babies. Mega-high heels, metallic bronze, need I go on? Perfect for a night out on the town or oh, say, grocery shopping at Tar-zhay. I'll let you guess where I did the test driving.
I promise these aren't nearly as cankley-looking in real life as they are in the pictures. I had to bend, contort, and position my feet in odd positions just to get a couple of good shots.
More of me waxing poetic over these shoes and don't miss out on the kitty pics!
Now, even though I'm 5'9" (and I'm the short one in my family!!) I love a good pair of heels. I'm lucky the husband is so tall, although I just might be about his height in 'em. These suckers are 5 1/4" of bronze beauteousness, with a 1 1/4" platform, which actually makes them fairly comfortable...keep in mind, I do have a skewed sense of what is "comfortable" when it comes to shoes. 4" heels can be as comfortable as my flats. At least that's what I tell myself when I'm trying them on. But, even after trekking around for a couple of hours, my feet weren't all that achy, and I didn't feel the need to yank them off immediately upon arriving home.
So, there you have it. I love my new shoes. I can dress them up or down and wear them all about town. (Just to get the poetic-part in there)
swatchcat C was less enthused about my new kicks and more interested in letting his fur ruffle in the breeze.
swatchcat D was much more accommodating in cheesing for the camera.
