Let the Mocking Continue

Finally, I have the funds to buy the shoes that have been mocking me everywhere I go. I love these shoes and I am so excited to get them. And what happens? They're on backorder!! The pair I want will be available to ship April 15th!! Crazy. Now, if I want the orange pair--those are a month earlier. Too bad I am ultra conservative in my shoe habits and don't branch out past black and brown, with the exception of one pair of red ballet flats I own.

So, from now until April 15th, I will continue to be mocked by those damn Tory Burch shoes. So close, yet still so very far away.

Hi Jenny, I'm a frequent lurker on your blog. Saw that you're wanting the Tory Burch black patent leather ballet flats. I don't know if you're aware of the shoe designer Loeffler Randall but she has a designer line of shoes for Target, much like Isaac Mizrahi does and she had a pair of black patent leather ballerina flats that look EXACTLY like the Tori Burch one's you're wanting only they're $29.99, as opposed to the $195 "Tory's". You have to check them out. Saw them at the new Super Target at 121/Custer earlier this week. Here's the link. I don't know if you're dead set on the Nordstrom's one's, but I'm serious go check out the Loeffler Randall one's. They are almost an exact replica for a fraction oof the cost. Hope you have a blessed day.

Ok totally funny I saw those shoes and thought like they look a lot like the ones at target. I am sure they are different but perhaps it could get you though the slump.

Good luck in your wait for the perfect shoes. April sure is far away!!!

(I'm with you on color - brown, black, that's about it)

Hi Jenny!
I've been reading your blog for a while (love it!), and as a fellow shoe-lover, I felt compelled to do a search for you. I think this may be the shoe you want, just thought I'd give you the link:

Good luck, and keep up the wonderful work! :)

Those shoes are freaking adorable!! I love them!!! I hope that by some freak act of nature they show up in your mailbox (front step) sooner than April 15th!!

I have also seen those same shoes here in our end of summer sales for only $45!!!! I am in Australia and could buy them and mail them to you for a fraction of the cost and you would still get them before April 15th!!!
