One thing you should know about me....nothing comes between me and pair of shoes I want. The good Lawd knows if a pair of shoes becomes the object of my affection its a WRAP! Done deal! They are mine, its just a matter of how much and when. Now, I am a reasonable women, and I do appreciate that shoe love affairs may be fleeting as the seasons and finances are limited. Therefore, if I can't have the real thing I stalk every internet site and local shoe store until I find a knock-off the satisfies my shoe hunger before it blows up and sends my next paycheck down the tubes (Thank you Honnie, Donna, and Kaiesha for preventing that from happening).
Past affections include these spring 2006 Country Pump from Dior. So yummy (enter Homer Simpson drool here). I never bucked the $700, but Auturo Chiang had an awesome renditions for $40 that made me happy. I have also fallen for many a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps (before the mainstream caught on...now red soles are so overdone).
You can only assume at the my latest obession comes from none other than the Sex and The City movie. Dior's Exterme Gladitor Platforms are TOO DIE FOR!!! I blushed everytime they came on screen (I damn near had a coronary when they opened the doors to her closet).
James: What's in the box?
Cindy: What do you mean whats in the box? Who is this?
James: I have a box here, I wanted to know what it is.
Cindy: (Puts 2 & 2 together) Oh damn, they delivered my box to the wrong address. Please don't open the box I'll come by to pick it up. Where are you, what's your name?......
I couldn't go home because I had S-Factor right after work and its Pole Week (I take Pole week very seriously) so I called him back and ask him if it was OK if I came tomorrow and he said yes. Its "tomorrow"and its 4:30pm - I have been calling all day...I CAN'T find James! My day has gone to waste trying to get this man on the phone so I can get my shoes :-(
My takeways on from this experience: avoid using FedEx as your carrier. This is not my first bad experience with them and I NEVER have a problem with UPS. Always leave your phone number on the shipping information. Its usually optional but in the event this was to happen to you at least you can be located via phone.
Wish me luck ya'll. If you don't see a picture of my 6.5's in those pumps before sun down, just know I done went off on some customer service agent at FedEx :-(
