THE PATENT PROBLEM

So, these were a complete and utter FAIL. They were such a disappointment. First of all, they were completely flimsy and weighed almost nothing, in a bad way. The chipped wood effect is poorly painted on and the shape is really bizarre in person. Its like Charles David had never seen a human foot and widened them in the wrong place but place very narrow and stretchless patent leather over said place so that getting the foot all the way in is a challenge but there is far too much area around it. Needless to say, I sent them back, but I still want a cute and wearable pair of patent open toed shoes! So, Im thinking several things: First, there is a pair of BCBG bootie sandals on Sale at Nordstrom and then there are a pair of Calvin Klein's on sale at Bloomingdales, but mostly there is that amazing CK sandal photographed by Jak & Jil recently that would be incredible to locate (no matter how I try, I can find neither a name nor a location to make these mine). What to do. What to do.
