So I've heard about this store since my Vogue addiction developed in high school, but had never visited one. Austin has one, so we went the week before Christmas. Wow! Seriously, it is miles more intimidating than Nordstrom's or Saks. Anyway, I spied the clearance racks in the shoe department and lo and behold, they had actual size 11s. (I hope my feet don't grow another half size during my next pregnancy!) And these size 11s were in Jimmy Choos and Manolo Blahniks! Aiieee! Let me just say that Blahniks are exactly as luscious as their original $1000 price tag (buttery leather and they were comfortable!) and were a steal at a reduced $350 price tag. Oh man! It's probably best that this temptation hit while being deep in grad school-related debt...I'm confident I'm at least creative enough to try to justify such a purchase.
