Item of the Week 022

I am very excited to show you my wedding shoes which arrived in the mail last week; I've never displayed anything wedding related on my blog before so I thought it was about time I gave you a preview. All credit goes to my mum for finding these shoes. She even paid for them which I greatly appreciate. One afternoon, a number of months ago, I was watching the shopping channel with my mum and these incredible sparkly shoes were for sale. We both admired the shoes; I thought they were perfect and would fit in so well with the theme of my wedding. But since they were over $200 and the wedding was still almost a year away at that point, I never seriously considered buying them. I actually even forgot about these beautiful shoes in the following months. Then, very recently, my mum informed me that the shoes were on sale; TVSN was having a major clearance and they were reduced to $45. Can you believe $45? That's insane! I went on the TVSN website and was surprised to see that my size was the only size left (these shoes and I were meant to be together, right?). The incredible price, coupled with the flexible return options meant I had nothing to lose in ordering them. After placing my order the shoes were sold out; I literally purchased the last pair. Within a few days my shoes had arrived and they were stunning. They fit well and are so pretty and sparkly. They are exactly what I wanted and I couldn't be happier with them. What a bargain! They fit the wedding theme; crystals and sparkles are a major element and my bridesmaid's shoes, which are black, have the same crystals on the heel. I had thought about purchasing brightly coloured wedding shoes but I came to the conclusion that my wedding is one of the only occassions where I can get away with shoes like this!

Thank you so much for your comments on my last post. I really appreciate your kind and helpful words. It means a lot having so many wonderful friends that understand. I actually feel so much better right now. On Saturday Rydog and I went to view some potential rental properties. We are not planning to move out for a few more months but I want to be prepared and have a clear idea of what is available. You can never be too organised with this sort of thing, right? The rental market is fairly dismal; everything is so small and in less than desirable condition. I'm going to find it hard to adjust because I am used to living in lovely spacious homes. I don't understand why people don't take care of rental properties; sure tenants don't own the place but if I were a tenant I'd still like to maintain the property to a high standard so it was nice while I was living there. I actually wish I'd viewed rental properties four years ago; the reality of the situation probably would have motivated me to save for all the years leading up to now. However, Saturday was a positive experience in many ways. I genuinely enjoyed looking around; I have always had an interest in real estate and I find it fun looking inside various apartment complexes and imagining what life might be like there. It is still early days; I have to remind myself of the possibility that something better might come up.

I am such a fan of your new shoes! They're lovely and I think you'd be able to wear them a lot even after the wedding, they're so fun and sparkly!

Kezzie said...

Oh my goodness Imogen, they are utterly gorgeous! Wow! I totally love them, they are rainbowy!!!!!!!!!!! I'd totally wear them if they were lower- you have better balance than me, I can't wear high ones (Maybe why I was so rubbish at ballet?!) and you are most welcome re the comment! Anytime. I know what it is to feel wretched at yourself! :-) x
