Peep Toe Bootie, Zipper Up the Back
..and that sounded a heck of a lot more sexy than I intended...
Back to the footwear.
I found them in one of those cheesy trend- only all-imported and made with child labor mall stores that have ZERO class.
( After years of retail, on both sides of the counter- I can say this).
What you should know:
A good store has bi-lingual, pretty staff that is helpful, humorous and likeable.
You want to buy from them, And you will.
The store should have perfect lighting, great music- not blaring- and well thought out aisles/ sections. It's set up to pull you in, and keep you there- color, flooring, upscale materials... all a plus for the finicky buyer. After all- we have a crapload of choices. Make us want to chose you.
That said, this store was none of that-
so I went in , grabbed these off the shelf, slipped one on then high tailed it out of there, stuffing my receipt into my pocket.
I love them.
They're black suede, with a wrinkled/pleated front and zipper back- and a pretty tall stiletto heel that will put me over 6'. I like that.
Great looks, decent price at under $50, and they are surprisingly comfortable... but...I have yet to wear these out of the bedroom.
Okay, that didn't sound right either.
