C is for Cheater

Our facebook status reads: It's complicated. 
Well, it would if TNB and ShoeDazzle were on facebook. 
As I posted last week, I am continuing on with my tough-love stance with ShoeDaz, but really hoping KK takes the necessary steps to repair our broken love.  Kim on the other hand, apparently was hurt by my comments and she decided to play hardball.  Last week I got the following email:

Hey love, Happy Birthday!  As a birthday gift to you, I consulted the stars for a shoe that a two faced B Gemini like yourself would want for your birthday and I found them.  Hope you adore them to pieces! 
Kisses, K

The F? Are you kidding me? 

And then it hit me.  She knows. 
I haven't been entirely faithful to Kim either. 

It started out innocently enough.  I needed emergency shoes for a wedding, so I made a quick trip to DSW.  I knew KK would be forgiving because our complicated relationship is also a long-distance one, and I needed shoes that day. 
So I found these. 

I ESP-ed an apology to KK as I scooped up the box and was almost to the checkout when I spotted these. 

The emotional affair began here I guess.  Backup shoes for when the wedding spills over into the late night bar scene.  I don't want to ruin perfectly good heels, so a cute flat pair is really a necessity.  And sweet baby Jesus, they only cost $19.99.  It's like they are paying me. 
I rationalized the entire shopping trip as a one-time-only excursion.  But the lure of a real life shoe store kept bringing me in.  While buying the Hus new work shoes at Stein Mart, I saw these babies for $49.99.

And these:

But I looked down at my Gracie's and remembered I was a committed woman.

Until yesterday.  I don't know if it were the really awesome Louboutin black and red flats that whispered, "she's not really that into you," or the Manolo black pumps that screamed, "wtf is wrong with you, the patent leather is soo much shinier on our side," but something stuck.  And I caved. 

I am truly in love.  It is like I don't even know myself anymore.  Flats?  I have been a heel whore for years, but I guess everything changes.  (My Mom bought them for me as a birthday gift and took them home to wrap, so no real close up pictures yet.)

So Kim, I am sorry, I really am, but you have some really tough competition.  You need to get your act together immediately or I am going to run off with someone else.  Maybe not Nieman Marcus, but Nordstrom has a Rack even you can't top.  Please show me some effort this month, or I am officially turning you loose.
Scorned love,

Disclaimer - I can't remember the prices of the shoes from DSW exactly, but I know I didnt spend very much, and the above was my best estimation

Okay, really? Kim actually e-mailed you?? KIM, IVE BEEN BITCHING FOR 4 MONTHS!!! WHERES MY GD E-MAIL??? SERIOUSLY!

I cheated on Kim too. (GUILTY. AS. CHARGED.) I was hoping she'd send me some wedding appropriate heels,(much like yours above) since she obviously wasn't sending me anything else half practical and she failed me. Too little, too late Kim. I bought some madden girl strappy silver snakeskin thingys at Famous Footwear. And they're CUTE. And they cost $20. (Ok, $25, but I had a coupon.) AND I LIKE THEM. A LOT.

C'mon Kim. We're all patiently (or not so much) waiting for some good footwear our feet can call home. We're getting mostly like temporary desperation shelters right now. Not homes.

Well said. Well said.

It's why I turned her down when she asked me out. My heart already belongs to two: DSW and Zappos. Sorry KK.
