Epic shoe dreams can come true!


SO.

YEAH.


Told my friends, "oh hey I'm going to the Barneys Warehouse sale to get those Proenza Schouler boots".
"Hey, it could happen!", I told myself.
I went on Tuesday and I was way more calm than usual. It was rainy and gross so I knew It wouldn't be packed. I walked to the area for shoe size 8 and began looking. At first glance the shoe selection seemed more tame this year. There weren't very many IT shoes like seasons past. Still, I immediately found some cute blue Balenciaga pumps and these YSL lace up booties with a weird triangle that juts out the sole. I had been in love with the YSL's all season, so I was already feeling good. Then I found the Proenza pump and then, I found the boot. I looked at the size, 37.
Hmm, it's probably not going to work, but I will try it.
I looked around the rest of the shoe area. The boots were not found in any other sizes.
So I tried them on.
And they fit.
And then I put all the other shoes back because my search was over.

I still can't even believe they are mine. They are perfect.
(ps. the pumps were too high to walk on and I was certain I was going to fall flat on my face just by trying them on)


OMG!


Can it please be spring already? I'm tired of layering and I want to wear cute outfits with my new boots.
THANKSSSS.


And now all power shoe vibes are directed towards THE Meow Miu Maryjanes.
