hi all! sorry for the break between my posts - i'm still "patiently" waiting for my Topbox - agh!!! it was shipped on the 13th but there has been no update whatsoever on the Canada Post website so i am very sad. :( if it doesn't come tomorrow, then i won't be able to open it til Wednesday - i am heading to Fernie tomorrow! it's going to be lots of fun tobogganing!! last year there was soooo much snow on the ground - like a couple feet taller than i am (i'm like 5'6"). this makes for great snowball fights and jumping off patios.
so anyway, i've been doing a lot of shopping lately - even with no form of steady income - but i honestly believe that you can never have too many shoes!!
i was going through the huge sale going on at The Bay, where you can take an extra 40% off some already reduced items and my eyes fell on a pair of Rachel Ray shoes. my boyfriend's sister is a huge fan of her dresses but i never knew she had a shoe line as well. get this - original price: $165. reduced price: $99.99. super duper reduced price: $59.99. hooray!!!! and when the lady told me that it was unusual because they never get Rachel Ray shoes and that it was the only pair AND in the only size that fit me... SOLD!
it's made of black suede. according to the website, it has a 4.5" heel and 1" platform. both the heel and platform has some kind of silver reflective material.
here are some closeups:
love the stitching detail on the insole and underneath the shoe. also the cute Rachel Ray logo on the bottom!
in the last picture, you can see the heel better. the back half of the heel is reflective while the other half is just black. the fuzzy colors on the heel are reflecting from a poster on my wall.
and lastly, here's how they look like on:
so YAY! i really did not need another pair of black heels but these were so different i had to have them :) and they are the comfiest heels i have ever tried on! wow, i have been missing out! i need to find more shoes that have this special cushion. i seriously recommend checking out The Bay these couple of days for some great deals on clothes, shoes and bags right now (i also picked up a couple of Dex shirts for like $10 each).
