When we got back from Amsterdam I found these waiting for me in my dressing room!
What a sneaky hubby!
The Hub's and I agreed that all the shoes I bought during the S/S designer sales would be my birthday present this year. But what I didn't know was that The Hub's was secretly plotting on surprising me with a pair of shoes himself.
I had been searching for a specific color of pumps for a really long time. The Hub's had even accompanied me all over Paris (including standing outside of the Louboutin store for over an hour in the freezing cold.. remember this post?) looking for this particular color unfortunately as many of you know I returned from Paris sans shoes.
(He's so cute huh?? :p)Well a couple of months ago I had seen the perfect pair of Brian Atwoods when we were in Frankfurt however at the time I didn't pull the trigger because this is a very unusual shade of color and I was "FOR SURE" it was going to go on sale.
Well turns out this color is SOOOO POPULAR NOW that the shoes sold out!!! I could not believe it. I comforted myself by saying that it was such a "trendy" color and that perhaps it was all for the best.
Well The Hub's on the other hand would not admit defeat and back in June decided to secretly call stores all over the place to try and locate the shoes. He called stores across the globe from Germany, France, England and FINALLY located a pair in the US! And for whatever reason they couldn't ship it to Germany so he had them ship the shoes to my mother and THEN he arranged for her to ship the shoes to Germany on the DL! (Thanks Mom :)!!
Can you guess?? :p
Here they are!!!!
(Unfortunately in some of the pictures it was coming up more yellow submarine rather than true neon.. but trust me they're REALLY fluo! Hubs said it was hurting his eyes to look at them bahaha! Which honestly made me love them even more!!! Not because it hurt his eyes but because it means that they are REALLY neon! tehehehehe!)
These Maniacs are patent leather.
They run TTS as are all Brian Atwood shoes in my experience.
They were reallllllllllllllllllllly tight but considering they are patent leather they will most definitely stretch over time so I would definitely advise against going bigger just because they feel really tight.
I have a couple pairs of patent leather Louboutin's that I sized up a full size because they were SOOOO tight and now they've stretched out and are sadly way too loose so I don't wear them as much these days :(
Remember these electric cobalt blue's from a few weeks ago and these shock fuchsia's from last Christmas??
Well I decided a little family photo shoot was in order!!
I mean seriously how often do you have multiples of the same shoe all in the neon family?
Thank you so much Booboo you really understand my penchant for truly obnoxious shoes!!!
Thanks for being such a ninja!
Thanks for being such a ninja!
Hahaha now that I have them.. I really hope I can wear these for years to come.. hahaha.. but I don't care because even when Neon goes out I'm still going to love them to bits!!
