No dice

Last week I went shoe shopping. It had been a while since I had gotten some new "work" shoes and my current ones were looking pretty bad. I have an obsession with Antonio Melani shoes. It started several years ago and it's grown deeper. They are only available at Dillard's so I went on over there after work. I was trying to be quick since I had to get home, pack for our trip (which by the way was so fun and I'm so sad to be back :( - post to come!) and come up with something for dinner. I tried on several pairs and came across one that I liked the looks of. It was black, which is what I needed and they looked pretty cute. And bonus, they were on sale! After picking out my outfit for today (black dress, yellow cardigan) I decided to go for the new black shoes. I opened the box and there they were in all their shiny patent leather glory. I put them on and they didn't feel right. I could barely fit into them without my feet looking like they were sausages! Aaron said "I like them, they're cute" as I was walking around trying to make sure they weren't cutting off the blood supply to my feet. I checked the box, 8 1/2, then the shoes, 8 1/2. Then I start wondering why on earth I got these if they were so tight! It dawns on me that I was in a hurry and probably tried them on, walked to a mirror, took them off, put them back in box and bought them. Apparently I should have kept them on for at least 5 minutes so that I could really feel the pain. I went ahead and wore them today in hopes that I can stretch the leather out a bit. I think they are feeling better....either that or my feet have gone numb.


I did however end up with a great pair that really are insanely comfortable and so cute! They almost had a "walking on air" feeling. It was awesome! And since I'm doing a lot more walking now that I'm downtown, I need cute shoes with a little comfort. I've already worn them to work and they still felt great! I could tell as I got into the afternoon they were rubbing a little more, but nothing like the black ones! No big deal, I could handle these.

Sorry for the boring post. I don't have any pics downloaded from our trip yet, so this is all I got! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!! It has been extremely hard trying to get back in the swing of things after being on the beach the last few days. Especially knowing that the rest of my family is still there until Wednesday! It also doesn't help that my mom emails or texts me pics of what they are doing. So sad!

I'm actually wearing that pair of black patent heels from Antonio right now! They are not the most comfortable shoes I've ever bought but they're not bad. Hopefully they'll stretch out for ya...

Love the second pair as well! I'm obsessed with Antonio Melani as well :)

I'm a big Antonio Melani fan myself. I have 2 pair of blue and one pair of black and they are SO comfy!

Cute shoes are never boring - I only wish they weren't so often painful to wear!

I hate when shoes do the vanishing size act on me.

Great shoes! Sorry the first ones hurt...but hopefully they'll stretch out a little for you soon!
