new shoes (shhhh...)

Ok, I caved the other night and did something very, very, very bad:

Before you judge me for being a blight on the economy and a waste of hardworking taxpayer money, let me just be clear about two things: first, I may be indirectly funneling taxpayer dollars into a pair of shoes now and then, but if anything I'm the solution the economy needs right now (just give me money, I promise I'll spend it) and secondly, they were only $15. 

I have discovered amiclubwear, a website whose design aesthetic falls somewhere in between Hot Topic and Wet Seal--on cocaine. In short, it's the most brilliant source ever for flashy whore shoes that won't set you back more than $25. I would be happy to take any of the following styles home with me:

I ended up choosing these gold stunners though because I love the crackled metallic finish and the little platform in the front. I want to wear them with thick woolly black tights and an airy white minidress that I don't actually own at this point in time...I better look into that.

  2. Woah! I love those shoes... I was thinking about buying them, too.

    Thank you so much for giving me the link for Amystore, it is totally fabulous.

    And, don't feel bad about spending money in these time. If you have the money, from an Economist point of view, the best thing you can do for the economy is to spend.

  4. It's so funny, I always joke that my next stop after living in NYC is going to be a log cabin in the middle of the woods. I don't know if I can do another city after living here. I am truly a mountian girl. I am so excited (this is me blabbing after too much coffee) I leave tomorrow to Virginia where it is 65 degrees to see a concert (the Phish reunion). It's going to be nuts...

I've put you on my favourites list too :) x

  6. Oh, McQueen is already at Target. At least my target, I bought a pair of black shorts. Most of the things I really wanted weren't out already.
