Yes! The search is over! I finally found my winter boots!
But I'm very happy with these...
Prayers and faith saved the day for me! The Secret works!!!
It wasn't the exact pair I was looking for, as these have more of a square toe (the good kind, like that of ballet toe shoes/Repetto Bardos and yeah, Lanvin square toe ballet flats). But well, you know how you think your crush is the most perfect thing in the world. and then you get to talk and you realize he isn't all that you thought he would be? Well, that's how I felt with the round toe ones when I finally got to try on a pair (in patent though, blech!).
Tell you all about it later!!! Woohoo!!!
