Rita - oh no too!

I love Angie's red Kate Spade pumps and I love the beautiful pink ones that modgrl just ordered. So when I was eyeing the blue Shelly pumps on my PC at home last night, DH popped his head in the den and said "oohhh...those are sexy" I happened to mention that they had just recently been discounted. He popped on his glasses, looked at the price and promptly said "why don't I buy you those as an early anniversary gift before your size runs out"?

I touched base with Rita and Inge (who has the cobalt blue ones) this morning with a few questions which they were most helpful with and voila - the pretty blue pumps are on their way to me.


P.S. I think hubby is developing a shoe fetish - he also bought me the animal print Docs Danielle's!

    Yay!! YLF Shoe twinnies :)

    I hope they work out for both of us!!

  • Angie replied 6 years ago


    You and Inge are shoe twins :).

    They really are incredible shoes, Shannon. I almost bought them in pink. You will love them.

  • Inge replied 6 years ago

    Ooooh, I'm so excited, Shannon, and very glad that you went ahead and ordered them. Hurrah for your thoughtful DH, he is going to love you in those pumps! (and so will we;-)

    *waving to Rita too*. We are Shelly triplets!

    Those are beauties! DH has good taste!

    I think there might be something to this visualizing thing...I kept thinking about the shoes after Rita posted about the pink ones and then found out they had been reduced and thought about them some more. Then I was looking at them on the computer screen wantingly last night and now suddenly they are on their way to me...I'm going to start visualizing a Mazda RX8 next...

    A DH with a shoe fetish sure is convenient! Now, why didn't I list that in my dating profile?? (kidding, of course!)

    You and Rita will both look so lovely in these candy colored shoes!

  • MsMary replied 6 years ago

    Wowsers! Yay Mr. Shannon!

  • goldenpig replied 6 years ago

    Heh heh heh, Rita IS a good (or bad) influence depending on how you look at it! :) You are so lucky to have a DH with a shoe fetish, Shannon! I think you'll get lots of use out of the blue. Cool that Inge has them too!

    Thanks to her I have a turquoise pair (price matched at the Kate Spade store) and ordered a cobalt pair too--not sure which color will be better--will have to compare when it gets here. The KS store had turquoise and pink. If they're absolutely fab I may end up keeping both, haha.

    I forgot that Angie had the Kate Spades in red but now that you mention it, I did love those on her! I would love to get a tomato red pair of shoes someday. Angie, were they also Shelly pumps?

    By the way, the shoes seem to run true to size--I'm usually a 7.5 and the 7.5 seemed to fit best on me.

  • Small But Mighty replied 6 years ago

    Umm, WHERE are these shoes for sale? WHAT is the original post you're reacting to? HOW can I see if I can afford them? WHY do I not already own them? WHEN can they be on my feet? WHICH color will I be choosing?

  • goldenpig replied 6 years ago

    Nordstrom has them at 40% off for $195 for cobalt and pink:
    I bought a turquoise pair at the Kate Spade store--they weren't on sale but the manager agreed to price match Nordstrom (your mileage may vary though).

    Here's Rita's original post:

    They are 2.5 inch heels. It is so hard to find mid heel pumps!

  • modgrl replied 6 years ago

    Here they are: http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/ka.....tback=3420

    So far I am the only one who fell for the 80's pink. Will anyone join me?

  • lyn* replied 6 years ago

    Yay for Mr. Transcona :)

    @ Modgirl - don't worry; if I could afford them, I'd get pink too!

  • K. Period. replied 6 years ago

    Yeah! I bet you are going to loooove those pumps. Hooray for DH!

  • Zapotee replied 6 years ago

    Very cute. I might look into this. I have been looking for cobalt blue shoes for a while and I love the.pink ones too.

  • Aida replied 6 years ago

    Rita, I LOVE the 80s candy pink!! If I were to buy a pair, I'd definitely go for those. Too bad I'm a bit over full on shoes right now ><

  • Meredith1953 replied 6 years ago

    Well done Mr. Shannon! I wish my hubs was even mildly interested in fashion. Those are lovely shoes.

  • catgirl replied 6 years ago

    I'm so thankful my fetish is reserved for boots. These look like they're going to be another YLF cult favorite!

  • Claudia replied 6 years ago

    Shannon your husband is really a gem of a guy. :-)

  • annagybe replied 6 years ago

    They don't come in my size (my oh so lovely father called me the female Sasquatch when I was 16 and sandal shopping).

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    OMG. Mr. Shannon and Mr. MaryK have to get together. That is SO sweet of him!

    I think I'm going to drop a few hints to my hubby about this.

  • replied 6 years ago

    HaHa. Too too funny. Hope you get that Mazda RX8, somehow I think you will.

    maybe the next meet up you could give a visualization class.

  • bj1111 replied 6 years ago

    so cute...and ummm, tmi abt mr shannon's proclivities?

  • Sveta replied 6 years ago

    Can I borrow you hubby? He is a treasure for sure!

  • ManidipaM replied 6 years ago

    What a lovely man to find! Even sweeter than the shoes :-)

    Whatever will you visualize next, Shannon? (Well, in the wardrobe department!)
