Guess what makes me weak at the knees


It’s no secret, i’m a self confessed shoe-aholic. It doesn’t take much for a pair of shoes to make me drool but when it comes to Guess shoes, I’m not exaggerating when I say they make me weak at the knees. Here I was wandering around in a sea of designer shoes at the David Jones shoe sale, I mean there were Oroton, DKNY, Armani, Florsheim, Milana shoes there for the taking, I was in my element – But when I got to the Guess table with 40% off – well lets just say the world stopped, I started salivating and yep, I went weak at the knees.

Somebody please tell me who designs the shoes for Guess, because I am absolutely in awe.  I had to exercise every ounce of self control not to splurge as I walked out of that shoe sale empty handed. “No K” I said to myself “you have enough Guess shoes, you don’t need more”…

Well, now I’m home, let’s recap on my Guess shoe collection and see whether I do in fact need more…

First, there’s the leopard print heels with a hint of red.  Great for dressing up some plain black pants or a skirt at the office, or with a racy LBD on a night out.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then there’s my faithful Sexy Black heels, that never fail to impress and go with anything!

 

These shoes are made for comfort  too – I brought them to wear to Melbourne for the Melbourne Cup and I wore them without any pain from 9am right through  until 2am!

 

Yes, these ones have  definitely earned their place in my closet!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And last but not least the ever so functional kitten heel points (yes, Guess make sensible shoes sometimes too!)

So,What is the answer to the question:

Do I have enough Guess shoes?

NO! of course I don’t. I don’t feel a  sense of satisfaction or pride from walking away from that Guess sale at David Jones empty handed.  In fact, I think I failed miserably!  Clearly what I need are MORE Guess shoes in my wardrobe, they’re amazing, functional, and sexy! Nice one sensible K  pffft that’s the last time I listen to you.  First chance I get, I’m going back to that sale, and I won’t be walking away empty handed!

Dreaming of Guess….

From Paris with love…

So, K is well ahead of me in the posts! I must admit I am discovering the world of blogging so please be kind.

To begin… I’m married with kids. So I dress not only to look fabulous but I also dress smart most days to be able to navigate my way through the day to tackle such things as bending over a million times, stain-potential tasks and walking everywhere. I like to be comfortable. So I must say, white is limited in my wardrobe and my heels are not too high and not too low, they’re just right!

Just like K, I love hand-me-downs and I love a great find at the op-shop!

Which brings me to today’s outfit. It certainly has a story behind it, like most op shop finds and hand-me-downs, but I think this one is kind of special…

I love my knit which I am told it came from Paris…say no more! The previous owner hadn’t even wore it, the tags were still on it when she gave it to me and she thought it had my name all over it. I tend to agree really, don’t you? The grapes on the back are just gorgeous and it has delicate white elbow patches. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of wearing it nor will it ever leave my wardrobe.

And my shoes…my shoes…

Now here’s a sad story that ended happily ever after. Upon moving recently, we donated a whole lot of stuff to a local charity last week. Flash forward to the weekend and I realise my boys’ baby clothing is missing! To say the least, I was truly devastated. I had plans to up-cycle their wares into blankets for them both and suddenly the memories and the motherly task were taken away from me, just like that!

On the Sunday I called the Charity just in case they hadn’t unpacked the two painstakingly sorted bags of each of boys clothing, crying on the other end of the phone like a sad, blubbering mess, when someone picked up the phone.

“Hello?” I say bawling now after no sleep from the previous night worrying about who had bought their first little beanie they wore home from hospital or the cute little rompers that I no longer have….”yes, we still have them and yes, no one has touched them, they are still in their bags…you’re LUCKY we had a busy day yesterday” “Oh My God, Oh My God!….May I have them back?” …”yes”!

Now I do have a heart and I felt bad about taking back from a charity, but my reasons were just and sentimental. So when I picked them up yesterday, I thought I’d have a dig around and buy something to clear my conscience, right the wrongs in the world and make karma happy.

Actually, I think  Karma came my way after I found these shoes. Never worn RMK’s in just the colour I’ve been looking for, at the perfect height and just at the right price of $5. Couldn’t have asked for a better find really. Could even call myself  a little lucky…
