Love At First Sight – Spikes and Leopard

27 Jun

I totally and absolutely believe in love at first sight. I found a pair of shoes that encompass everything I ever wanted in a shoe. I originally saw them at Nordstrom at The Grove, my heart actually skipped a beat. I didn’t approach them at first because I feared what hefty number would be on the bottom of the shoe. The price turned out to be, well, pricey. I couldn’t justify spending that amount of money on a shoe that I might only get to wear once or twice. So, I made the mature decision and walked away. I thought about them often. I wondered how it was possible that leopard print pumps with rhinestones and spikes on the heel could be dreamed up by someone other than myself.
I have always loved all things leopard print, I quite possibly was from Jersey in a past life. The spikes, let’s just say High School was an interesting time for me and I developed a love for all things Punk related. I’m pretty sure I momentarily dated a guy who wore a collar with spikes and he called himself Spike.
I let the the shoes go. Just as I no longer wanted leopard wallpaper or a guy named Spike, I moved on past my desire for the shoes.
Yesterday I stopped in to Nordstrom Rack to kill some time before camp pick up. Shoved in a blank box in the corner of the shoe racks in my size, lay MY SHOES! It had been months since I saw them and they were just as heart stopping as the first time I spied them.
I quickly grabbed them and headed for the register. If the fire alarm had gone off at that point I have to be honest, I would not have evacuated without that box. When I got to the counter I told the woman my shoe saga as she rang them up for half the price they were originally. The woman paused, looked me in the eye and said, “These are the very last pair. Sometimes things are just meant to be.”
I agree. Sometimes things are meant to be. Love at first sight is real and shouldn’t be messed with. After all is said and done destiny will guide us to where we belong in the end. I will end up there wearing my new shoes.



Do you believe in destiny?

    I totally understand where you are coming from. Yesterday, I happened to be at Holt Renfrew Last call where I stumbled upon a pair of black rhinestone studded cowboy boots in my size at 70% off. How could I not get them???

    I don’t have words for these shoes. Actually I do. But this is a family show.
