Must Have Second Purchase

* Photo Credits on this one go to Johnny*
I am so excited to be able to show off these shoes! I bought them as the second half of my Buy One Get One 1/2 at Payless, with the purple ruffle booties.

I don't know if it is the color or their unique design that really got me hooked, but these shoes make my imagination run wild. We were going to dinner with friends after work, and I just knew that the day would be crazy so I strapped on my electric purple heels and headed off to work. I'm glad I kept the rest of my outfit pretty simple, the day quickly became hectic. As I ran around from town to town meeting with customers, alleviating situations and hosting last minute meetings, it helped to have confident feet to back me up.

For dinner my shoes stayed mostly under the table, but when they came out on our way to the car, so did the compliments. For the most part I never get compliments from random strangers, and my outfits don't normally elicit much outside response, but something about these shoes made people sing. I volunteered to walk to the car, and drive around to pick everyone up. As I walked around the building, people just kept staring. I counted at least 4 people who stopped to stare at my feet, or who quickly pointed at my shoes. What amazed me was that no-one was unimpressed. A man pushing a stroller quickly grabbed his wife and goes, " Would you look at those?! Wow". Um what?? These shoes cost me a whopping $20 with discounts and coupons, but judging by the approving stares, you would have never known that these shoes cost me less than dinner did.
