Bad News/Good News

The bad news: my favorite heels (Sam Edelman Novato in patent blush) officially died on me today.


They'd been dying a slow, painful, clickety-clackety death ever since I wore the heels down to the nail. Tackytown right here, people, and I'm the mayor of it. Instead of taking them in to get resoled like any normal, self-respecting person would, I said screw it and kept on with my tacky self. But, I'm finally taking my shoes off life support today, lest I superglue the dangling threads of my self-respect back together.

The other bad news: Nary a single store in all the land seems to carry this shoe in my size any more. That's what I get for buying "out of season."

The good news: I just bought these Sam Edelman Lorna pumps for my F/W 2011 wardrobe to replace my dead heels.


I realize these are also not new for the season, but goddammit they're gorgeous!! And the enclosed heel feels far more autumnal than the slingbacks (read: the buckle won't just pop off while you're walking to the bank!)

The other good news: I'm sporting this awesome manicure that I stole from Cupcakes and Cashmere.


She hasn't done a tutorial yet, and well, neither have I, but I figured it out well enough, so you probably can too!

What's the bad news/good news in your life today???

Well your manicure is gorgeous. I think you can get this fixed at a good shoe repair place-- if you love them, it's worth it!

In response to your comment on my grocery store outfit post, my bf took those pics of me. So I didn't technically take them "of myself." But yes, we did take pics of my outfit in a Kroger. It was fun!

The new shoes are fab! I love them :)

That happens to my heels all the time and I get them fixed. They only cost like 7 dollars to affix a new heel on it. I think you should look into it, but like I said, the new shoes are fab!

Sam Edelman had amazing studded shoes. Such a good choice!

I want those shoes! Probably wouldn't be that fun to wear right now, though. Cute mani, too!
