When it comes to my wardrobe, I am kind of boring, I love black and if you open my closet door, you’ll mostly see darkness (with random bits of colour) because I have so many dark clothes and so few brightly coloured clothes. I’m doing my best to buy brighter colours (or just colours, period!). Similar to my wardrobe, my shoe collection is mostly blacks and nudes. I’ve always loved coloured shoes, but was never brave enough to purchase one until now. Blue is my fave colour (especially cobalt blue), so I took the plunge and bought a bright blue pair of shoes. Maybe my next pair of coloured shoes will be red or purple!
When I was working at Hudson’s Bay, they had this pair of blue/purple suede pumps that I absolutely loved: Vince Camuto (Style: Kain) that I absolutely loved. Back then, I didn’t have a reason to buy them, so I always stared longingly at them.
I decided to ask my parents for a pair of blue pumps for my birthday, so we started the hunt for those blue suede pumps. Of course, back when I worked at the Bay, they were on clearance…I missed my chance to buy a pair in my size in that beautiful blue colour. We went to several Hudson’s Bay stores and could only find them in size 9 or larger.
I was starting to give up on my dream shoes. I even searched on American websites and department stores to see if they had them, but none were to be had in my size. I was about to give up until we went into the Vince Camuto store. I found a pair of Louise et Cie electric blue d’orsay pumps. They were even prettier than the Vince Camuto ones! Also, they were on sale for more than half off! I couldn’t contain my excitement and did a little happy dance in the store as I told my dad they were on sale. He smiled and said, “excellent!”
They are a pair of Louise et Cie D’Orsay ‘suede’ pumps (Style: Hermosah in Tulum Blue) with a 3 1/2 inch heel.
