Last month's Essence magazine featured some sandals that I immediately fell in love with. Have you ever had that feeling? Where you see something and you HAVE TO HAVE IT NOW? I felt that way recently about an Isaac Mizrahi purse. And I was trying to be good and not just buy stuff on a whim. I have yet to see that purse again and I'm a little hot about it.
When I saw these shoes I had already resigned in my mind that money was no object...well within reason anyway. (I'm not ballin' all like that just yet.) I saw myself walking into a party in those shoes and all eyes being on me. (Vain...I know.) I envisioned gladly telling anyone who wanted to know who had made the shoes and where they could get a pair if they so desired. So I flipped to the "where to buy" section in the back of the magazine and promptly called the listed Alexander McQueen store in New York City.
I immediately knew something was amiss when the salesman on the other end of the phone sighed a none to subtle sigh when I told him that I was calling to inquire about the shoes I saw in the new Essence magazine. He politely but somewhat exasperatingly told me that the shoes had only been made for the spring show and that they were no immediate plans to put them in mass production. It was such a wah-waah moment. (The definition of the wah-waah can be found here.) I really wanted those shoes. They're cute, no?
So if any of our NYC readers know of an Alexander McQueen sample sale that will be going on in the near future let me know. I will beg, borrow and steal to get my hands on a pair of those shoes.
