New Shoes: The O'Hare Edition

Well, we had some time this afternoon before leaving for the airport (our flight wasn't until 5:30), and so my mother-in-law decided to take me to Dillard's for their 70% off shoe sale...

I now feel better about Akron after this:














And this:














And this:















And then, because I was only in Toledo for a weekend trip, and had practically no luggage with me, I needed something to carry the shoes home in. This was purely a practical purchase.


Even though this looks ridiculously pink, I promise it's a shockingly bright purple. And yes, all of these pictures were taken at O'Hare Airport during my layover. I mean, well, I SHOULD have called Lizzle and the Librarian Pirate and gone and had drinks, but then I probably would have missed my flight, and well, missing work because you missed your flight because you were drinking in Chicago is frowned upon by those that are uncool...

And, seriously, how hot is that first pair? Damn hot, right?

evette said...

Right.

I think I need to leave CA and head to the Kron. Why can't I EVER find shoes that hot??

Wow! And I love the sassy poses. I also feel it necessary to share that I have the EXACT same Balenciaga knock off! And it truly is a jazzy purple!! And it looks fabulous with black!!


And clearly this means that we are both awesome.



And also your MIL is awesome.

Missing a flight because you were drinking is perfectly acceptable. Airline travel is SOOO unpredicatable sometimes . . . :-)

Oh my God. I LOVE your shoes. Love, love, love them. I have the shoe envy. Great bag, too!

Kelly said...

I would have loved to see people watching you take those pictures! Especially the ones of the shoes!!

Liz said...

Wait... You were in town, and I didn't hear a word from you? OH HELL NAW!

That's just not cool Marcia!

And yeah you might have missed your plane, but hell, that shit happens all the time, and you know they'd have just put you on the next one...

I am beyond hurt right now!

I have to say that you will be FINE in the Kron because obviously you will still have the capability to attain super shoes during your year there. And can I just say hwo AWESOME your MIL is???? Would it ever be possible to borrow her for a day? I would love to know what it's like having a MIL as cool as that. Tell her I send her some mad props (which I never do to strangers).

You have officially passed that shoe crazy Imelda lady. You're going to have to buy a house with an extra room just for these things!

I heart that purse. Well, I heart the shoes too, but a purple purse is just too much fun.

Jen said...

great job. I am with Nello on watching the poeple's faces of you taking those pics. Hilarious. See, The Kron wasn't so bad.

Hi. Nice blog. I have very little to say, as I don't do this often.

I can't imagine shoving my size 11 boat into shoes that sexy. I guess I'll have to live vicariously through you. Now the purse... that would work for me!

amped28 said...

Darnit! I didn't even get my new blog address right! I'm pathetic!

I might steal the brown ones from you. Just a warning that you might not want to bring them on family visits if you plan on leaving with them in your luggage instead of mine.
