The Shoes

OK so judging by the comments I received on this post and the votes on what shoes I should pick...I went against (almost) everyones advise.  I did listen...and I did contemplate all my options...but I kept thinking about how many fun outfits I could create with these shoes...and as for neutral shoes...I'm thinking those will be quite easy to find anywhere (as long as I remember to look).  So when I went to place the order I was extremely frusterated that those shoes did not ship to Canada...infact there were only 2 brands that did ("Pleaser"...stripper shoes...and some old lady brand)...and lets face it...I really didn't want to use the gift certificate on those or housewares (what the website mostly sells).  Luckily I live 45 minutes from the US Border...my parents even have a PO Box in the States (they only live 10 mins from it)...but they are away...and I didn't want to wait until they got back...because then I'm going to be away.  So I found a shipping company that I can have the parcel shipped to for a $4 fee.  I hate that I have to waste money on gas to pick them up....so I'm thinking I'll make a shopping trip out of it and drive an additional 1 1/4hrs....that way maybe I'll find my perfect neutral shoes at the same time!!

I'm glad you picked these shoes. They are super great! And yes, you are right, you can get neutral shoes anywhere! And your shopping day sounds like a great idea!

Isn't it terrible how many things don't ship to Canada? Sechyles (sp?) ship to Canada IF you are willing to pay an additional 60 %, yes SIXTY percent of the cost EXTRA. Stupid, hey? I had to get my husband to read the fine print twice to make sure that was indeed what they were threatening!

Wow, so much to catch up on! I agree the whole not shipping to Canada thing is so frustrating. Luckily a lot of the big stores are finally adding us to there shipping roster.

I totally loved the floral skirt Brody bought for you when you guys first started dating. It's so pretty. In fact I loved the whole post.

Also, Vyla's bathing suit was soooo adorable. I would not be able to gush enough about how cute she looked!
