Dangerous

I first introduced these modern, sexy and albeit ultra cool sandals to you earlier this week on a post called On Broadway. Why did I name this post Dangerous? Well, here is how the story goes...

Like most footwear lovers, making a bee-line toward the shoe department is routine, and this shopping trip was no exception. I perused the area in the same manner in which a Hawk watches for its prey. I searched high and low for something that would catch my attention. I found a pair that was interesting, but not drop-dead gorgeous. Suddenly, I rounded the corner and spotted the beauties perched on a shoe display. I immediately dropped the other shoe that I was holding so that my hands would be free to capture the lovely, black patent number. Without hesitation, I swooped them up into my hands and thought to myself, I don't care what they cost, they're coming home with me.


I found a place to sit and to try them on. I slid my right foot into them, and then the left. I stood...they felt like butter. I walked over to the mirror and while giving myself the once-over in the mirror, a fellow shopper came over to me and said, "If I wore those shoes I would break my ankle! I smiled and said, "Believe it or not, they are quite comfortable and dangerously beautiful."


Today's look: Sandals-Michael Kors via TJ Maxx (similar), Pants Pixie Skinny-Old Navy, Sweatshirt-H&M (similar), Backpack (old), Jewelry was purchased while vacationing in Mexico.

    1. A girl after my own heart. I have learned the hard way. I have put things back to change my mind and find that the object of my affection is now gone.

      I'm glad you like the look :)

  11. Stunning shoes Glenda. I was entertained by your shopping story , I can be a bit intense while shopping,,too. The scrappy shoes are perfection , pure and simple. That they are comfortable is a huge bonus, and mandatory in my book! Love the texture of the white tee and the red pants. Snoterj stunning outfit, completd perfectly with that Leo backpack!

    1. Thank you Elle! I have learned over the years that there is a reason why some shoes and inexpensive while others are expensive. Good shoes make a world of difference.

  23. They are the prettiest pair!! So right you bought them. I recognize the bee-line, even though I don't know the expression.
    Once when my husband and I were on holiday, he suddenly stopped. In reply to my question why he did that, he answered: "well we are at a shoe shop, aren't we?" LOL
