Shopping Online Again

I did some online shopping recently.

I liked two dresses from New York & Company and ordered both, an oversized blazer dress in “sapphire” blue and a belted blazer dress in green.

Perusing the Nine West website, I noticed some green heels that would go well with the green belted dress that I ordered. There was a sale. The heels I wanted were $59.99 plus shipping. However, if I ordered another pair, shipping would be free, so I ordered two pairs in green. Actually, they were different shades of green – one was green suede and the other was “Aquamarine Green.”

My wife’s birthday was coming soon, so I ordered a dress for her from Amazon. I own two similar dresses that I love, so I could not resist and ordered another one for myself, too!

Everything arrived within hours of each other. I was happy with the shoes and Amazon dress, but the New York & Company dresses were huge and looked awful on me... so awful that even in my correct size, I did not think they would look any better, so I shipped them back for a refund.

Now I have two pairs of green heels, but no green dress to were with them. I guess I will have to do some more online shopping! (Actually, I do have other green dresses, but a girl must have something new to wear with her new heels!)

Speaking of heels...

My closet was overflowing with shoes. I am embarrassed to mention how many. So I recently spent an afternoon moving all the shoes out of the closet and trying them on in order to eliminate the shoes that did not fit comfortably.

During this effort, I rediscovered two cute pairs from Payless (remember Payless?) that I had forgotten about. They are not only cute, but they are also very comfortable and I wore them during my dinner outing last Wednesday. 

Both pairs are over ten years old, so it did not surprise me that the rubber tip on one heel came loose (the glue had dried out) before I left the house and I had to switch to the other pair before heading out Wednesday afternoon. (I glued the tip back onto the heel after I returned home.)

And so it goes!

  1. All of my dress shoes (heels and men's dress shoes) are black as black goes with anything. I guess I took an idea from Henry Ford's comment for Model T Fords (except for the.early ones): You can have any color as long as it's black.
