Perfect pink patent peeptoes

So I decided to hold off buying either of the previously mentioned shoes for a few reasons: 1) the wedges that were on sale are no longer on sale and about $100 more now, 2) for some reason I think my feet are getting smaller and size 7 fits me better than size 7.5, which is what size those wedges were, 3) we are going to NYC next week (can't wait - we usually go in the fall so I am looking forward to a summer visit!) and I am sure I will find tons of things to buy when we go shopping our first day there and 4) I got these in the mail!2010 07 14 photoThey are the perfect patent pink peeptoes :) (They are actually a bit more coral than pink, but it sounds better.

DSC_6069I bought them from Shannon, almost new! The only signs of wear are on the sole and they fit like a dream. They will definitely be perfect for work or play (whereas the other two were definitely play only!).

DSC_6078As you can see, they are from J. Crew, but at a fraction of the retail cost. They also fit like a dream. So thanks for not wanting them anymore Shannon!

I normally get the heebie jeebies when I see used shoes at the thrift store, but barely worn pairs by a person who seems clean and, well, clean, are perfectly fine by me :)

That last comment of your cracked me up! I'm the same way buying stuff from Ebay - most times I want the new with tags deal, but if the seller appears to be reputable (whatever THAT means from only looking at a fuzzy photo of something online), then I'll grab it!

Those sandals are gorgeous - and your color!

Ack...those shoes are to die for! I'm also totally scared of buying used shoes, especially ones that will be worn without socks.
