I've Made A Decision

I was in Big D with Hank once again this past weekend. While he did his thing I did mine and went to Nordstrom to pick out which would be the lucky pair of shoes to come home with me.


It was hard picking just one pair.



Fortunately, or unfortunately, this Nordstrom didn't have this pair, the decision would have been that much more difficult.



The salesperson, Eden, was so nice and helpful. Eden loves shoes, they are her weakness, she shared this bit of information with me. I told her that perhaps this was not the best place for her to be working, she agreed. She said that her mom had told her that working in the shoe department for her was like an alcoholic working at a bar. Yikes! Long story short, Eden tried to help me decide which pair to buy. Her suggestion was to buy both because shoes bring you joy, put a smile on your face, and make you feel good about yourself every time you wear them. She said that when you have a cute pair of shoes people notice and will pay you a compliment. The compliment will make you smile AND make you feel good at the same time. 

Oh, how right she was. I came within a hair's breath of buying both but I exercised self-control and bought only one pair...for now.

Which pair you ask?

This pair.


These are actually more coral than red. I blame the lighting for the color.
Nordstrom is one of my favorite places to shoe shop. So much in fact that I'd like for you to experience them for yourself. Wanna win a pair of shoes? Yes? I thought you might.

Ah, but which ones? At the same time I was trying on this pair and the cute suede Sofft pair, I also tried on a pair of TOMS. TOMS has come out with some ballet flats, so cute and comfy, I'd like for you to have a pair. Ballet flats not your cup-o-tea? They also make some adorable wedges. Not the wedge type, there's always the classic TOMS. You get to choose which style you'd prefer. Here's what to do to enter:

1. Click here to go to the Nordstrom TOMS page and take a peek at what they have. 

2. Come back over here and leave a comment at the end of this post and tell me which style suits your fancy.

3. If you'd like an additional entry, join the posse, or if you're already a posse member leave another comment telling me that you're a member.

4. For yet a third entry, Facebook or blog about the giveaway and send you friends over to join the posse. Leave me another comment stating that you've blogged or Facebooked about the giveaway.

Giveaway will close on Saturday, March 3 at 6:00 p.m. CST. U.S. only.

Niether TOMS nor Nordstrom have a clue about who I am, I decided to do this all by my little ol' self.

  8. Ok, I really like them all. But I'm a flats kinda girl. But I'm torn between the classics and the new ballet flats. All so cute. I've tried TOMS on but haven't purchased, so I already know my size :)

  21. Wow this is a hard choice, as I love way to many of them. I love the crochet especially the new bright blue and orange colors. Then I love the glitter ones whether its the ones with just a little shimmer or the black and gold regular glitter ones. I also really love the new flats especially the leopard ones. Although considering its now spring I love the orange crochet toms! I think I like toms way to much

      Tis important to know women's fashion. Then you know how much the women in your life are spending. Something Barry has, undoubtedly and unfortunately for me, figured out.

    2. I guess I have been blissfully ignorant all these years. But also lucky that Kym goes barefoot much of the time!

  33. Oh dear. I love shoes. And I haven't gotten a new pair on such a long time. I just looked at the TOMS website. There are so many cute ones to choose from. I am going to go with the "Classic" style though. It'd be nice to have a CUTE pair of shoes that are easy to slide on and go. I would go with either purple (it's my favorite color) or black. :)
