The first blog post after my “My blog is my blog” anthem, and I choose to write about shoes. Hey, a girl can’t help herself. Anyway, I have a new obsession lately, and it’s a pair of dove grey patent pumps from Target. I absolutely had to share these. I first laid my eyes on these babies (officially called the Pearce Pump, btw) on one of my favorite bloggers Kendi from Kendi Everyday. I saw her wear her grey pumps over and over again, and at the time, I couldn’t find them on target.com.
Well, two weekends ago, I lucked out. I was strolling through the Target shoe department on a detour from my original floppy hat mission when my eyes landed on them. The shoes I had been coveting for weeks, right in front of me. I was originally drawn to the rich, rosey camel variety, but my heart belonged to the cement-colored patent beauties. Looking back, I absolutely should have bought them in BOTH grey and camel – and maybe even black – but at the time, I went home with one for $30.
The first day I wore them was to work. Now, you see, I have to park an exceptionally long distance from the front door of my office, and I work at a magazine, so walking back and forth between a printer, my desk, my art director’s desk, my editor’s office…it’s exhausting, so breaking in shoes in the halls of my publishing company is hardly ever a good idea.
These shoes were no exception. I was smart enough to bring a pair of flats to switch into later on in the day, for my poor feet were barking. I thought “oh great, love the shoes, hate the fit.” Well lovies, I was wrong. One more wear, and these puppies were good to go. I’ve worn them probably well over 10 times since that initial foot date, and they are the perfect height, the perfect width, the perfect pump. The only thing that could make these better is maybe an insole (because they are a little thin at the sole with no cushion, but really, they aren’t that bad.)
Buy them. Buy them in every color you can find in your size. I’m a 7, 7.5 in open back and toe shoes, and an 8 in closed-toe shoes. These fit great in an 8, but I probably could have gotten by with a 7.5. Just a note. Get them (I know I already said that.) You won’t regret it!
Oh, and if you needed anymore reason to get these, besides my word: neutral shoes are probably even bigger this season and going into fall then they were last year when they first branded the fashion cow. So, yeah. Take that…and get the shoes!
