Pursuing Shoes Like It's My Job...

Well it kind of is {insert smiley face}! 

A little shoe success story that I want to share: 

Earlier this week I posted a gorgeous pair of sandals from Mark & James by Badgley Mischka. The post also found its way to NOTCOUTURE and a lot of shoe lovers started clicking through to Pursuit and then Nordis. Although I had been eying them for a few weeks, I was holding off on purchasing until my shoe savings was sufficient… until yesterday! 

For some reason I decided to go peek at them again and to my surprise all sizes were sold out except 7, 8 and 10. Initial response- OMG this cannot be happening because I have to have these shoes- then I decided to live chat with the Nordis rep and beg her to find a pair in 5.5 or 6. Of course, she confirmed the worst, they were sold out and she was not certain if more were EVER going to come in. Google searches came up with nada/zilch/zero- I must find them- that’s when I remembered where I initially laid eyes on the beauties: Nordstrom in Glendale. 

I called the store and gave the Women’s Shoe Salon the item number and asked if they had a 5.5 or 6, even if it was the display. Obviously I was desperate. No 5.5 available and only one size 6 – HOLD THEM PLEASE! After work I booked it to Nordstrom and hoped that the 6 would fit.

It's as if the shoe gods were listening to my prayers because the size 6 fit like a glove. Shoe Success!


The profile is just so dreamy. Ohh I can't wait until it warms up so I can wear them! 

Lesson: Never stop pursuing shoes, there is always a way!
