Holy Shoe Grail
Susie Bubble's blog. They looked so wonderful on her, I knew I needed these Miu Miu canvas rhinestone heels. I found a pair on eBay a few months ago, and it was the first time I had seen them in years, but they were retailing for over $400! Then the other day I was fueling my eBay addiction, and lo and behold, the elusive Miu Miu Canvas Lux Grezzos appeared. I had never seen this strappy version before, but with the ability to make an offer I could afford to take a chance. My offer was accepted, and I had these shoes on my feet the next day. I actually love the strap detail and how they make my legs and feet look. Who would have thought canvas could be so elegant? Now I think I need some new summer dresses and skirts to wear them with : )
I know I have said before, good things come to those who wait. And these shoes reminded me once again of that lesson (which pertains to more than shopping, of course). Lately I feel like I have been struggling with being patient. It's hard when you want something oh so bad, and you feel like you have earned it, but then you are put on hold. I'm really trying to keep everything balanced, stay focused, and take my mind off the waiting around I feel like I am doing. When I wear these shoes and look down at them, I want to be reminded of the rewards that come when the time is right.
