When a girl loves her shoes (16)

This shoe post is one of those posts that I am so excited about. Why? Well I have wanted these shoes for a bit now, but refused to pay full price for them. There was no sign of a sale  anywhere, and last week they popped up on Rue La La.  I placed them in my cart, and had planned to purchase them later in the day. Well I went back to get them and they were GONE. There was no 7 1/2. I was so hurt inside. I finally found them at a price that was doable, and I missed out. They had a black pair in my size, but I didn’t want them in black. My vision was always the leopard. So what did I do? Google search. I found them at Eve’s Apple for an even better price because they were having a take an additional 30% off of sale items. Heck I was shocked they were even on sale somewhere. This was meant. But guess what? They only had a 6 and a 7. So I got to thinking, and  recalled that all my L.A.M.B. shoes run a bit big. I hopped up and took every L.A.M.B. that I had in my closet and tried them on to verify. DING DING DING. All a bit big. So I decided to take a chance with the 7. I read the policy on returns, and all was good. Well they arrived, and fit perfectly. 7 may be my size in L.A.M.B. from this point on. So that’s my story. THIS GET IT GIRL will HUNT for a GOOD PRICE. 

I woke up Sunday to SNOW in DALLAS, and decided to take them out to see it. I am sure my neighbors thought I was nuts. You cant see, but I had on sweats that were ROLLED UP, with a denim shirt, and no hat. I was a mess from the knee up (LAUGHS). But my feet looked good right?

HAPPY MONDAY!
