The Eternal Hunt For Nude Shoes!

Earlier this year I found myself on a quest for nude shoes. It didn’t matter what style of shoe as long as they were nude and had a heel of some sort. My obsession started off in Atlsnta where I hounded the managers of the shoe departments at Saks and Neiman Marcus. ALL nude shoes were sold out by March. Every Louboutin, every Gianvito Rossi, even Nine West SOLD OUT!!! I moved on to my people at Jeffrey’s. They are usually on the ball but nothing there either.
It turns out Mr. Louboutin was only making a certain number of nudes and distributing them evenly amongst all his distributors in the States 😦

Now being a size 41 I knew this was going to be a challenge but I’m not one to give up especially when it comes to shoes Hahahah ( you would think I’m trying to get a degree). I proceeded to call all my connection s in London and in Paris still nothing.

I had accepted DEFEAT, I would have to wait til next fall to snag some new nudes.

Fast forward to August. I’m in Knightsbridge shopping. The usual places, Harvey Nichols & Harrods, then I remember there are a few good consignment shops around here. Being in the business of consignment don’t know why I didn’t think about checking them out before!!!

As I head over to Cheval Place I feel happy, lol, excited. I zoom towards the dressing room and what do I see?! A whole wall of nude shoes !!!! I peruse through them I find 3 in size 41.

There they were these amazing two strap Prada heels. Simple. Exactly what I was looking for. Even better they were BRAND NEW and only £150 🙂

I felt accomplished. I won! Hahahah! I waited a long time and I got what I wanted.

CONSIGNMENT SAVED THE DAY!

P.s. Turns out my Prada heels happen to be the same ones that Kim Kardashian bought on Ebay.

Sophia Webster x Saks 5th Avenue Atlanta

Sophia Webster and Saks 5th Avenue teamed up to throw a fantastic event to showcase her Spring/ Summer collection. There was a DJ, amazing cocktails, decadent hors d’oeuvres, a cotton candy stand and of course Sophia Webster herself! The designer spoke briefly about the collection then milled the room speaking to small groups and individuals while others mingled and networked. The collection is awesome and a ton of fun & the displays were very creative – kudos to Saks’ visual merchandiser and the Sophia Webster team!
