Polaris Fashion Place Mall holds a special place in my heart. It was where I tried out for (and subsequently won!) the CW Star Contest in 2012. It was where I taped a segment for The Meredith Vieira Show earlier this year. And now, it’s where I bought my first pair of Christian Louboutin shoes!!!
I wanted to wait until I was officially able to walk in heels before buying a brand-new pair.
But this weekend, I caved. It’s been seven months since the car accident. That’s 34 weeks and 6 days or 66.85% of a common year. And I’m. Still. Stuck. In. Flats.
I needed motivation. Something to compel me to maintain my physical therapy exercises. I needed a light at the end of the tunnel.
So, I went to Saks.
Before you think I’m rolling in the dough and regularly do retail therapy at the most expensive of department stores, you should know I had only been in that store maybe one other time to compare the prices to the actual Saks that I went to in NYC. In THE Saks 5th Ave, I saw a 25-thousand dollar purse! I can’t even imagine having that kind of money to blow on a handbag. I blink at a $50 purse.
But I digress…
When I turned 29 this past April, a bunch of my coworkers chipped in and surprised me with an incredible birthday gift: a gift card to Saks Fifth Avenue!!
The coworker who came up with the idea wanted to gift me a pair of the holy grail of heels: Christian Louboutin shoes. (Or “red bottoms” as some call them.) And here locally, they only sell those shoes at Saks.
Another one of my fab coworkers agreed to accompany me to the mall and we had the best time laughing and trying on a ton of shoes!
Here are some photos from our #GirlsTrip:
So…what did I get? Stay tuned!
