My husband's work Christmas party is this weekend. It's a huge affair, suitable for a huge company. I'm pretty sure of what I'll wear (either my LBD or a brown lace dress that I've had for years and is very forgiving). But I have no shoes to wear. Of course I have my faithful black lace sandals that I've worn to every fancy event in the past ten years, but I guess I'm getting old and I don't feel like having snowy toes this year. And then there's my cute granny shoes. But they're a little too granny. Taking up knitting is about as granny as I want to go at the moment.
So my kids and I stopped in a shoe store while we were at the mall for other things. I found the perfect shoes! I just love them. Patent leather(?) in a nude/blush colour, with an adorable strap. Of course they didn't have my size. I tried on both 7.5 and 8.5, but neither fit.
Then I found a super sexy red patent pair. Yes, I would still wear these to church. Of course they didn't have my size, again. I could tell that if they had been a half-size bigger, they would have been very comfortable.
Then I finally found my size! Yay! Unfortunately, although they were totally cute, and I loved them, I was looking for something a little less traditional than black patent mary-janes. And I don't like wearing black with brown (I'm really leaning toward wearing the stretchy-forgiving dress)
If I can't find anything tomorrow (heading to Winners! Possibly with four kids in tow, depending on what time of day I manage to make it there), I'll go back and get the black shoes.
Oh...and what am I going to do with my hair?
