The New Suede Booties



(Cardigan by Zara, Tank by American Apparel, Skirt by Forever 21, Belt and Shoes by Aldo, Necklace by Tiffany and Co.)


So, these are the new booties I bought from Aldo yesterday (see here).  I have been wanting a pair of wedge booties like these for awhile ... I like how you can wear them with socks so your feet stay warm in the winter, they have a rubber wedge for comfort, and the wedge and shoe colour are the same.  These were all important things for me in a bootie.  Also, I didn't want the heel to be too high.  These are 3.25".  I wore them all day at work and had no problems ... and I rarely wear heels!

Now let me tell you a story about these shoes.  I searched and searched online and in stores to find a pair of black suede booties I liked.  I found these on Aldo's website, but at $80 were too rich for my taste.  About a month ago, they went on sale and I immediately bought a pair.  I waited and waited and then waited some more until finally, no joke, 2.5 weeks later, they arrived at my door.  I brought them home (I get things delivered to my work) and tried them on.  WAY too small!  Also, my boyfriend T really didn't like them.  Really really didn't like them.  Then it was Christmas. No Aldo in home town.  I didn't want to pay for return shipping, and I wanted to try on the bigger size in the store.  Finally, last night I got around to returning them.  I waited forever in line, then had to go to another store to try on a bigger size.  Bigger size was too big.  Had to buy insoles and heel stickies in order for them to fit ... ended up costing me $15 more than what I originally paid.
Arghhh!  These shoes better be worth it.


That is all.
 
Have a great weekend!
