My Preciousssssssssssssssss....

Givenchy feather collar booties

I have had my eye on these booties since the start of this season, when I first chanced upon them on Zappos.
There was something about the feathers that seem so frivolous and fun, plus the open-toe makes it so different from the other booties that I have. Yet I wonder if it was too trendy and I wasn't quite ready to take the plunge at its retail price.
I missed the chance to get it when it first went on sale at Zappos. I didn't know when it happened and was moping for quite sometime.
Yet when I was randomly browsing Zappos last week, I saw a pair up in my size and available at the sale price! Just like that and a few clicks later, I have ordered this pair of feather booties! (I chalk this up to good shoe karma! ;))
I received my pair today and it is high
I am used to 4, 5 inches in high heels, yet somehow this pair of booties seem higher than 5 inches..maybe closer to 6 inches? I shall have to measure it next to my other pairs of shoes to be sure.
It's surprisingly comfortable though and I chalk this up to the platform that's built into the shoe.
Did I mention that the shoes are gorgeous in real life? ;)
This pair's definitely a keeper!

Hey Nina - thanks for dropping by ;)

Pucci, I haven't worn them yet, planning to debut them this Friday for my husband's birthday celebration. I plan to wear them with my baggy/drop crotch pants or the usual dress/leggings combination. The shoes should go with lots of things in my wardrobe now since I mostly wear a lot of black and grey at the moment.

These shoes are awesome. I can't wait to see them in a fit pic. Would look great with your jodhpurs.

I would like to play around with them and actually wear them out! Maybe when it stops raining....
