My birthday is coming up in 10 days. Christmas is one month later. I just got back from a quick getaway to New York City and while I was there, I bought myself a present for my birthday and Christmas. I couldn’t resist. If you have been following my blog, you know already the challenges of having small feet and my love for shoes.
Shopping at the high end boutiques in SOHO can be depressing. So many gorgeous items that I will never be able to afford but covet. Most of the time I just go and window shop, touch the clothes, see the fabric close up, in awe of the workmanship and design that goes into all those beauties. This time, when stepping into the Alexander Wang boutique, I was greeted by the shoes that I have been coveting, sitting pretty on display. I picked up the pair and saw that they were my size! I proceeded to try them on and knew instantly they were coming home with me. So what if they cost more than my plane ticket? I was not leaving New York without them.
These are the Alexander Wang Lina pumps. They are a two piece pump with leather on the toe cap and purple suede on the heel and ankle strap. The true 3 inch heel with no platform and the pointy toe gives this modern shoe a classic feel. I have dozens of black heels, but believe it or not, this is my first pair with a pointy toe.
Just looking at these pictures as I write this post makes me love them even more. It seems so wrong to love a pair of shoes so much. But you already know about my shoe problem. These shoes will be worn with cuffed jeans as seen here, or with cocktail dresses, or even with leather shorts. Sometimes love finds you when you least expect it. Happy shopping!
