At any rate, I often times find myself longingly gazing at a pair and thinking "Hello, lover." Very a la SATC, but it's true.

In the words of my father, "You can wish in one hand and sh*t in the other and see which one fills up first." He was a Marine. 'Nuff said. Not wanting a handful of poo, I need to set some sights on reality.
I found these at Nine West, on sale for $69.99. I'm wondering if I could find some groovy little vintage shoe clips. I have some from my grandmother, but they are silver. I also have some groovy blue rhinestone clip-on earrings from her that might work. Oooooohhh.......the gears are cranking. I love blogging and brainstorming at the same time!

However, because I love my blogoshpere peeps, I will share. The information is this: the best flat shoe of ALL TIME is called the Mia Hepburn. I bought 2 pair at DSW 2 years ago and fell in love with them. The leather is soft and they are the perfect go-to flat for fancy or casual. I have a pair on right now. When my first 2 pairs started to die, I tried to find them and couldn't. Everyone was sold out. I finally found a pink pair and another black pair at Overstock.com last winter and the second pair of black ones are close to dying. While I was lamenting my shoe options, I ran across a fresh new batch of Hepburns! MIA finally realized their gold mine and has restocked Zappos with lots of new colors. They must have also realized how much people love them because they are no longer $50-$60, but $75! Damn it all to hell. I am in the midst of a wedding budget and I cannot abide the fact that I cannot buy the shoes I want and love. Here they are:
What do you guys think of these?
