Take a long look at these shoes; it’s likely the last time you’ll see them. I’m not happy about it, but sometimes a girl just needs to learn to let go. Ages ago, these shoes broke…like, in half. They were already sold out and I was quite smitten with them, so rather than return them, I decided to get them repaired. And then I left them at the shoe repair shop for months…at least three. When I finally picked them up, they looked as good as new, and I thought we’d live happily ever after (or maybe a year).
There were many times (including the last time I wore this tunic) that I searched my closet for these shoes only to realize that they were still at the shoe repair shop. Once I decided on this tunic, the rest of the outfit came together easily. And with such an amazing print, I didn’t feel the need to pile on accessories. Just a simple ring was all I needed.
About halfway through the day I realized that my shoe broke in the exact same place that it did the first time. I knew there was a chance that they were beyond repair, but I was blinded by love (and shiny shoes). This time I think I need to just let them go. This pair just wasn’t meant to be. The worst part? Looking back on it, I'm pretty sure all my jumping around broke them the second time... Moment of silence, please.
