Last September, when I visited GS, we went shopping. I know. Hard to believe, huh? We were having horrible luck finding shoes I wanted in my size at Nordstrom's. The sales guy had me pegged and brought out a pair I had missed. A pair of Mephisto sandals - leopard print soles, sort of a bronze/gold leather strap and rhinestone buckles. They mold to your feet and are the most comfortable things in the world! I have been wearing mine fairly constantly throughout the past year, and it shows. :)
Today, I stopped in Nordstrom Rack on the way to pick up the kids. On one hand, I really shouldn't have spent the money. On the other hand, I've been saying I love the shoes so much I wouldn't hesitate to spend it again.
There were three styles there for over HALF what I paid for my shoes last year! One was a hideous lime green strap and tan sole. The one I REALLY wanted they didn't have in my size - a pink leopard print with pink leather straps. Dammick!
Here is what I finally bought - in contrast to the ones I bought last year. *bounce bounce*
And no - the shoes on the left aren't dirty. I've actually worn down into the bottom of the shoes that much.
