Love Your Soles Entries~

A special Mimi Marie Thanks to Tiffany and Amanda for submitting their very own "Love your Soles" shoe story! If you are new here and would like to know more about this shoe journey, click here.

Here is Tiffany's story:
These are my Coach shoes from www.coach.com that my boyfriend now my {fiance} bought me in feb. 09 after I was put in the hospital and they didn't think I was going to make it. I saw a nurse with them and asked him if I made it would he buy me a pair of them. Yes, I was being rushed to another hospital and in bad shape but still wanting to look good. =} I <3 them.

Here is Amanda's story:
One day the hubs and I were walking through the mall. As we passed a shoe store I glanced in and stopped dead in my tracks. "I need to go in there!" I said with urgency as I dragged my husband inside. I know he was wondering what was wrong with me because I hate...no, despise, shopping for shoes. But this pair of shoes, I HAD to have. As I walked in and got closer, it was love at first sight. I found the first person available and asked for my size. "I'm sorry, we only have that shoe in a 7." My heart sunk. One of the main reasons I hate shopping for shoes...I wear a size 10 and it is next to impossible to find a fabulous shoe in my size. As we left the store, I was desperate to find THAT shoe! I don't even remember why we were at the mall, but we ended up spending the rest of the day searching. Every store either didn't have it, or they didn't have it in my size. I was SO anxious to get home and look online. I FOUND IT! The reason no one had it, was because it was being discontinued! Yikes! They did not have it in my size, but they had it a size bigger. I NEVER buy shoes without trying them on first...but I was ready to make an exception.

I remember the day they arrived at my door. I couldn't rip the box open fast enough. They were PERFECT, and they were MINE! I guess in my excitement, I forgot that I am one of those people that has to have EVERYTHING match...and I only have one green shirt =/ Fortunately for me, that's not really the style anymore...It's ok to wear a bright green pair of shoes with just about any other color. But I can't get over that fear that someone will point out that my shoes don't match.


THANK you soo much for submitting your shoe stories! Keep them coming everyone!
