I recently attended a fashion show at Neiman Marcus for a local charity that benefits the Levine Children’s Hospital called The Starlight Society. It is a fantastic organization — the group’s purpose is to plan events for the children in the hospital to lift their spirits and make sure they still have fun as kids.
Wilson and I sat front row at the fashion show and he was uncomfortable at best. Despite his squirming, he did learn that animal print never goes out of style and also that pointy-toed shoes are in this season. As the emcee announced that pointy-toed shoes were the only ones to wear this fall, I quietly tucked my round-toed leather booties under the gold-cane chair… As one of Wilson’s best friends says, my bad.
In my defense, I had originally planned on wearing this terrific pair that I recently purchased from Gilt Groupe:
Just call me Elvis with my blue suede shoes.
At $79, they are a decent price and not that uncomfortable for 4-inch heels. Gilt constantly carries a great selection of shoes — some are expensive, but others are pretty affordable like this pair. I trotted around in these shoes a few weeks ago at a work event and got lots of compliments.
As for my fashion faux-pas, don’t make the same mistake. Go buy some pointy-toed shoes and do not be shamed by the Neiman Marcus associate. And lesson learned, always follow your first fashion instincts. Damn.
