so, even though i fear that the storyline itself will likely suck ass, i'm still excited to see this:
even though quite a few of SJP's outfits in SATC are pretty outlandish for my conservative ass, i still love checking them all out. besides, in addition to her reported 40+ costume changes throughout the movie, i find myself admiring outfits on prissy, girly charlotte. i love her pearl-clutching, full-skirt wearing character, and more than once i've headed off to the mall in search of something similar to one of her ensembles from the show.
and, of course, SATC is nothing without the shoes. those chicks get to rock some pretty fantastic footwear, and even if one can't pull off the fashionista getups, every girl can strut her stuff in a kick ass pair of shoes.
every girl, of course, except me - because i'm a total heels wuss. i'm almost always in flip-flops, flats, or wedges with maaaaybe a 2" heel. anything taller than that and i'm whining within the hour about my feet hurting. beauty is pain, this i know, but i just can't sacrifice my comfort to that extreme.
and now, something fun for you guys - an almost completely unrelated giveaway. haha! i'm signed up for daily updates from a site called groupon - they offer some really great discounts every day for products and services. usually, they're local to wherever you live. anyway, a few weeks ago, the offer of the day was for something called rolleez. i clicked on the link and found these:
they're what i call "emergency flats." you know, you're out and about, looking fabulous in your 4-inch stiletto heels, but you're pooped and your feet are killing you. and driving or doing pretty much anything outside of the house or at the beach barefoot is gross (at least, i think so), so you continue on miserably in your fabulous but hellish footwear. OR, you reach into your trunk or wherever you keep stuff like this, pull out a pair of little ballet-style flats, unroll them and slip 'em on. and then you can put your awesome heels in this little tote bag, which unfurls from this strawberry shape:
okay, i sound like a damn commercial. no, i'm not being paid to sell these things - but i do have a bunch of pairs to give away! i've got black, pink, gold, and silver ones in size medium (supposedly for a 7-8 foot). granted, they're not the most beautiful shoe in the world, but i think it's nice to have an option available just in case. i've found myself hobbling around after attending a party or a wedding or something, and having a pair of flats in the car would've been fantastic.
anyway, if you'd like to get your hands on a pair, leave me a comment with your e-mail address, your top two color choices, and - hmmm. just for fun, tell me (or link me) to a pair of shoes you'd love to scoop up this summer. i need shoes, and maybe you guys can help me shop.
you've got till monday at 9:00am (PST) to enter, and then i'll use random.org to pick some winners!
