As promised, here are my pictures from the Army and Navy shoe sale yesterday. It surprisingly wasn't as busy as expected nor was anyone viciously shoving aside others in pursuit of the perfect wedges. Remember, this sale continues until the 27th and they are constantly bringing out more shoes so you still have plenty of time left to drop in. They were literally bringing out boxes and boxes of shoes and putting them on the shelves the whole time we were there, so don't worry if you haven't gone yet. I'm definitely going to go back once more next week to see what else they'll have.
V. amongst the some of the shoes we tried on.
A cute pair of ankle boots I liked. May have to go back for these. They were only $24.99 I think.
Some really hot mary-jane wedges that I would love to wear if I wasn't such a disastrous combination of tall and clumsy.
Amazing cranberry red t-strap mary-janes with a stiletto heel modelled by V. We all loved these and all agreed that we must avoid the stiletto trap. You buy them because they're pretty, wear them once and fall the whole time, then never wear them again except while prancing around your house. Kind of a waste.
The only thick-strapped wedges I found. I liked them, my friends hated them and in the end the velvety soles turned me off them completely. Although they were incredibly comfortable, I'd much rather have ones with a wooden sole.
Full shot of a tired Vancouverista with the wedges. I actually carried them around the store planning to buy them for quite awhile but I just know I'll eventually find something similar that I like far more.
The t-strap flats I couldn't find in my size but V. bought, so I can live vicariously through her shoes. I must find a pair of these when I go back next week. Must.
The mary-jane flats I did buy. Simple perfection.
On a totally different note, I am in love with this sofa. I've walked by it a few times now at this new store on Beatty St. called Nest. The first time I saw it I was so shocked by it that I had to stop and stare for a minute. Isn't it so lovely? I am obsessed with flocked wallpaper patterns. It would look amazing in my dark red living room. Don't you think? I don't even want to know what it costs. While I was taking these photos a salesman inside the store was watching me with a confused look on his face just to the right, out of the frame, of the first photo.
Beautiful. Sorry the images aren't better but it's hard to take a picture through a glass store window.
