Yup, got another pair of Lady Dragons. The were $120 instead of the usual $149, and they were so fab I had to get them. (They're also the same shoe as my wedding shoes, the ones with the hearts, and I have to practice walking/dancing in them, so it's almost a wedding expense.)

The only annoying thing about Melissa shoes is that they do not have half sizes. And I'm of course between sizes on some of the shoes. Thus these purple flats, in contrast to the pair of Melissa flats I already own, are ever too slightly too big. However, I've learned the hard way that shoes even a touch too small will never, ever work. We'll see about a touch too big. I think those do actually work sometimes. This is the Night flat, and they were going fast. $25.
I seem to have this weird thing going where people undercharge me at sample sales. Last week I got three things for $10 at the Cynthia Steffe sale instead of three things at $10 EACH, and no, I did not alert the cashier to the error. This is the Desire shoe -- so effin' cute! I got it for $25 although you may have to pay $35 if you go. Which you totally should!
The sale is at 520 W. 27th Street, suite 601. The staff is really nice, offering to get you different sizes from the back, and they have sake and stuff if you would like to partake!
I'm actually for once sort of glad it looks shitty out today so I can wear my new plastic shoes. One of the
