So, I haven't updated in days and on the day when I wake up prepared to do just that, I look out of my 7th-floor windows and see that the Los Angeles downtown skyline is obscured by sheets of rain. Rain! In Los Angeles! The Dude does not abide.
So, in short, this is my "ah, screw it; it's raining" outfit.
I am allowing myself to purchase one pair of shoes that exceed my standard $30-per-item allotment. I've narrowed it down to three Jeffrey Campbell options.
1. The Lita - $162 at NastyGal
Here is my issue with the Lita -- everyone and their mother has these shoes. I love these shoes, but how long will I continue to love these shoes? They are so easily recognizable that they've become a trend. I know that the second I buy them, I am going to be over Lita-fever and sick of seeing them everywhere, and then I will have wasted $200.
2. The Bizarre Gypsy Platform Clog - $155 at NastyGal
I am not a real girl, only a strange approximation of one. I do not keep nice things nice. One look at the velvety goodness on these babies and I'm already thinking about the many mud-sludges through which I will accidentally traipse. But, oh! Aren't they glorious in their absolute ridiculousness?
3. The Two-Timer - $165 at Envi Shoes
And here we have a pair of good lil' boots, but they are wedges, and am I painfully over wedges by now?
So, dear readers, I NEED YOUR HELP. Please pick out my next shoes for me, because I am overwhelmed by my first-world problems and at a complete loss. Also accepted: "none-of-the-above" options coming in at $200 or less.
Don't let me down. You are Madame Clio and I am seeking your advice, yo.
