I wore my new red dress with my trusty black t-strap heels that are so thrashed! I bought them way back in high school. I didn't take good care of them those years ago, meaning they have a lot of nicks in the patent and smudges all around. It was high time to order a new pair of black heels, so I finally took the plunge this afternoon and ordered these from Modcloth.
I was super reluctant to replace my old pair, as I just adore the mix of patent and suede. They are by Merona (from Target) and came in so many colors back when they were for sale in 2008-ish? They came in navy, teal, forest green, grey, black, and burgundy. I bought the black and the burgundy, and luckily my burgundy pair are in better condition than the black pair. I sat down with some black nail polish (liquid patent leather right?) and a huge fat black sharpie to touch up some of the worst bits to try and eek a few more wearings out of my beloved black t-straps. They need the heel tips replaced too, so that's the next step. If only things didn't wear out? I'd love to time travel a bit so I could go back and buy around three pairs of the black and one in the forest green! Hindsight ladies and gentlemen :(
Still, new shoes! I have been eyeing them on Modcloth for a while as a potential t-strap replacement, so hopefully the will fit!
