I Dream of Shoes

Last night, I was looking at my flickr contacts, and came across Forrest's co-workers Flickr site. Beth has the cutest shoes ever, and I decided to go check out the brand of shoes she was wearing.

Big... Fat.... Hairy.... Mistake.

In my former life as a single woman, college student, and tip earning waitress... (i.e. when I had money) I was addicted to shoes. Not heels or fancy shoes... but comfortable, cute casual shoes. An hour after I went to Zappos website, and perused the shoe collection for Earth shoes, I promptly fell in love with these and about 100 other pairs of shoes that they make. Yet, they cost a fortune!!!

I found several other brands of shoes I liked, including a biodegradable shoe by Simple. But back to the Earth shoes. I was so smitten I went to their home website to see what other shoes they had. And I ordered a catalog. I have to be able to touch the pretty pictures of these, these, these, and of course, these.

Pardon me, while I clean the drool off of the keyboard. So today, since Shepherd and I have some errands to run, I might... I just might... stop by the store near here that sells these shoes, JUST to try them on. At no time am I under the impression that I can actually have these shoes, but a girl can dream can't she?

I love zappos, but so that I can get my fix on Born shoes and Franco Sarto! Or the Nordstrom's in a pinch if I'm seriously needing a new pair of pretty shoes! SHOES! One cannot have too many pairs!

Hey, we love Simple shoes at our house also. We have ALWAYS been able to find them for CHEAP at outlets. In fact, the awesome Simple's I have on right now cost me $15.00 and have helped me walk my way around Europe three times.

So, check out your local Famous Footwear.

(and the site looks awesome, by the way!)
