    Been drooling over them since they came out - I'm so envious! Let us know how they fit.

    Oh, and welcome to the Lounge, mai!

    Yes, welcome Mai. I'm drooling over the purple flower shoes. So pretty. I have the rocket originals sandals in the green and they are brilliant. Surprisingly versatile. Their customer service is great too. I'm lucky as i run into them at a few weekenders i go to, so i get to try before i buy. I did buy some saddles from them online and their size chart was spot on for me.

    Thanks ladies!
    I am now waiting impatiently for the shoes, even if the Swedish weather does not allow me to use them for a while yet. Review will be posted and perhaps even a picture.

    I just wanted to "rant" about something real quick... I went to visit my mom in law today and my sister in law showed me something her grandma gave her the other day: a pair of 1940s alligator peeptoes picked up during a vacation in cuba (plus matching purse). I think my jaw dropped all the way to the floor when she took them out of the bag..I'm soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo jealous, especially 'cause I tried them on for fun and they fit me (I'm a 6.5, she's a 9) I mean, I get it.. it's HER grandmother, not mine. But I'm 99% those babies will never get to see daylight ever again and not only because they don't fit her, but because she's more of a Uggs and jeans kind of girl (nothing wrong with that) :( Sigh. I just wanted to ask her if she wants to trade them for something with me. Hahaha.


    /rant over.

    I'm still considering buying the black Target pumps! Just got a new phone today, so for now I'm back to being broke, but maybe next week. I need to stock up on summer shoes.

    I need a pair of yellow sandals and I'm very tempted to buy these in white and dye them.

    I wore vintage creamy white wedges for my wedding, but I've worn them out dancing a bunch. They're comfy shoes! I say don't let the color hold you back if you love the shoes.

    Managed to score these super-comfy Oxfords from Clarks that I've been wanting:

    BNIB from Ebay at about 1/2 the price - squee! I have them also in the spectator variation but of course black will go with everything.

    I bought the pumps from Target I posted on the previous page! :) Originally, I wanted them in black but they were already sold out :( Oh well, given that I wear too much black anyway I think it might be good :D Can't wait to get them!!

    My super-cute red shos from Rocket Originals didnt fit :(
    According to their sizing chart they would fit, but unfortunately they were too big so they had to go back home.

    Well, well...

    I got my pumps from Target!!! :)

    I think they look even better in person! They're not so much a neon purple (somewhat seemed like it on the website) but a deep eggplant color. Love, love, love them! Now I just wish they'd still have them in black too >.<

    I'm the worst at taking pictures.. sorry about that! Also sorry about my ugly foot, lol.

    They are a wee bit small in the front (I am a size 6 and ordered them in size 6 because they were out of 6.5) but I have a really wide foot in the front... I blame it on years of ballet/pointe dancing. Maybe it's genes too though, lol. I'll need to stretch them out a big but the heel seems really comfy, and it seems like they have a (very small) hidden platform. I'm excited to wear them! I hope Target gets more cute shoes like that this summer! :)

    Next I want the TUK pumps in red or black. Or both. I keep thinking about them. :D

    Mine too, too big! :( I succumbed to the Kates in brown as they were on sale, but it feels like the cutouts are in the wrong place for my toes as even wearing tights they keep getting stuck. I'm afraid to try smaller because I'm quite wide across the ball of the foot...

    Thanks for your support. They are a more festive version of a similar style I wear dancing. These days I prefer a mid height heel, which proves difficult to find. I hope I am right on the size, 41EU is supposed to approximate 9.5 US.The "shouldn't have" part is that we're trying to keep our spending down. Fingers crossed that they will be my favorites for dancing all through the summer.

    Those shoes are adorable!! Ohhhhhh... I wish I had the $$ right now to get them! Sigh.



    And Crwitt, 9.5 by standards, is actually a European size 40!!! Or do they provide measurements on the site? I didn't look.
