As you know, my beloved store, Cincy Designer Shoes is closing at the end of the month. (Actually, the owner said she might close sooner because she is running out of inventory faster than she anticipated.)
So, I’ve been in stocking up three times in the past week. I think they’re going to set up a cot in the back there for me to just sleep over.
But I really am sad to see it go. Last Friday, I sat in there with Carrie the owner and just talked with her some more. She had a leftover bottle of champagne from her Thursday Champagne & Shoes event she does, so we shared that and chatted.
And can I just say… I kind of had a euphoric moment there, sipping on a glass of champagne (my faaaavorite drink) surrounded in a sea of spectacular shoes I had just tried on. I felt like a glorious, gluttonous Princess of Pretty Shoeland. : )
Believe it or not, I’m usually very frugal and cautious about money and shopping. Each purchase is calculated and well thought out. But there was something about the beautiful shoes, something about the sale, something about soaking in as much of the store before it closed for good… that made me lose my freaking mind.
Like I told you last week, I left with four pairs of shoes and a handbag. Here’s Pair #1 from last week. Pair #2 are the orange leather, flower embellished, Martinez Valero ‘Corona’ Sandals pictured to the left. I actually couldn’t decide if I wanted the yellow or the orange, so I posted it to my twitter and facebook page asking for votes.
I was thinking yellow would win. But as you can see, orange won by a landslide. I’m glad though, because Practical Amy is now thinking that yellow would have gotten dirty a lot quicker.
They seem very Sex and the City to me. Very eye catching. And they’re actually really comfortable. As Carrie puts it, the leather “is like butta.” These sandals came in yellow, orange and a really pretty turquoise (only smaller sizes were left in the turquoise though).
Since I got them, I’ve been “harvesting” a lot of orange jokes.
Orange you going to open the door?
Then I found myself on the Annoying Orange YouTube page my husband is now addicted to.
But citrus and comedy aside… You need to peel and get your rind to Cincy Designer Shoes and get in on this sale. haha! Oh, the orange jokes don’t get old. Even if you “concentrate.” : )
