The Something Blue

On a much lighter note from my last post, I have some rockin' good news. I bought shoes! I think theses are it!

I was out shopping last weekend in Hong Kong and found these in a little shop near my hotel. They are 2" high (but look more, don't you think?) and are actually comfortable!

While they are not Manolo's, like the coveted style Carrie wore in Sex and the City, they do feel reminiscent of the look. At least to me they do!

The saleswoman in the shop was getting irritated with me (I think) because I couldn't make up my mind. I kept walking back and forth in them and trying to decide what to do. I finally told her they were for my wedding and she seemed to get it. In her best English (and me with my best Cantonese), we had a conversation about the Western tradition of "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue." It was comical, at best. The shoes were HK$598 and were 10% off. When I went up to the register, they were magically 20% off! LOVE when that happens! All told, the shoes were just under $68! Not too shabby, me thinks.
