The Daily Kick: Revenge


Georgina Goodman Felicity Pump (also in black) georgina-goodman-felicity.jpg

are Very. Naughty. Shoes. 

They’re also Georgina Goodman and eighty-five percent off.

These are the shoes you wear when you’re going to have to see the ex who unceremoniously dumped you for a German amnesiac (I am not EVEN kidding) and although you’ve spent the past three months in your apartment spooning with your dog, watching Harry Potter and making fake frico by putting string cheese in your George Foreman Grill because you’re doing this low carb thing –since all the joy is gone from your life anyway you might as well give up pasta, too– you have a social event you CANNOT avoid and HE’S going to be there with his scary East German girlfriend and even though she got the man you thought you were going to spend the rest of his life with (who was too old for you anyway), you put on these shoes and your Third Date Dress, practice your imperious glare in the mirror just one more time, call your friends –who are just so excited that you’ve finally decided to bathe much less leave the house– and take solace that you’re WAY. FREAKING. HOTTER.

Not that that’s ever happened to me.

    Plummy, you bring joy to an otherwise soul sucking Monday.

    Are we sure that the shoes on amazon are not counterfeit? Because if we are confident that they are not, damn they have outrageously good prices on a lot of great shoes.

    Yep positive, the catch is usually the sizes are extremely limited so they’ll only go to 85% off if there are just a handful left.

    Then those shoes are mine. Along with some adorable gray flannel Betty Mueller pumps. Sometimes having size 11 feet is pretty awesome.

    I’m with you Chiken –that’s also my shoe size– stay tuned for the rest of this week since I’m featuring several other size 11’s on crazy sale.

    Oh Evie, I live to serve. It’s actually coming up on our five year Unniversary. We’re dear pals now but good LORD did that suck. I mean seriously, a ^%$# AMNESIAC!

    Is it wrong that that story is eerily like one of my own? If you exchanged the German amnesiac for an unceremonious email from an on again off again man, who was also probably way too old for me, blathering on about how he needs a new shirt because he’s got a “totally stunning date” to impress?

    Like yours, mine ended with “and I was totally way hotter and lived happily ever after,” although I do not speak to this guy anymore.

    In other news, *those shoes.* I need them.

    Yeesh, Plummy. Why couldn’t she FORGET that she was seeing YOUR GUY? What’s the point of amnesia if it doesn’t do YOU any good?
