|This zipper is screwed.|
When I was zipping up my boots this morning I noticed that there was a little irregularity in the zipper and it caught. So I did what we would all do, and I forced the zipper closed, knowing this probably wouldn't end well and praying it would get through the day.
Those boots didn't make it to my second cup of coffee.
I looked down to check on them and the zipper split. I said a bad word (shocking), unzipped the boot and a small shower of zipper teeth came tumbling to the floor and the zipper came off the track.
The death knell sounded for my beloved black Kensie boots.
|Collections of shoes totally paid off.|
Shoe drawer to the rescue.
For some reason the selection there kind of sucked though. Gray pumps, purple tweed peep toes, burgundy patent and suede Mary Janes and a black patent peep toe with a giant ribbon on them from Paris Hilton. I borrowed the heels from my friend Kat (with a K) like a year ago and never gave them back. I don't even know how they got to the office.
I have on a black patent leather belt, so it matches in that way, but they're peep toes and I'm wearing tights. Luckily they're the kind that's more of a missing toe of the shoe and not the peep that would show how shitty my pedicure looks.
|Bows to the rescue.|
Now wildly unhappy with my day because my boots broke, I hate my shoes with this dress, and I didn't get a call I was expecting (I have such bougie problems), I resign to the fact that I will spend a whole day wearing shoes that don't go with my outfit.
So what happens as I'm on my way to a meeting? I get a compliment on my shoes. And not only my shoes, but the shoes with the dress. Apparently it looked great, which I wouldn't know because we don't have a full length mirror at the office, and I was all concerned about my shit pedicure and tights.
By the end of the day the only problem that remained is the fact that I still don't have a pair of black boots. I guess it's time to start looking for some. In the meantime I'll have to take those Paris Hilton heels back to the office because apparently they come in handy.
