2 and three-quarter years ago, i went to a nordstrom for the very first time and charged my first special purchase. i drove alone, browsed alone, and paid alone. for these. the colors were absolutely perfect. they were a wee bit loose on me. but they were soft. so soft. nothing had fit my feet quite like these. these were my first 'adult' shoes.
then i 'loaned' them to my mom. she loved them. so much so that she wore them only once.>:-(. i wanted her to love them like i did. they would change her whole outlook, give her a bit of fun in every day she wore them.
that didn't happen, so i've finally accepted her offer to return them to me.
feels. so. good.
i sound like i'm obsessed. weird.
