ShallowGal weighs her shoe options for Alaska

ShallowGal has heard tales of people who go on vacation and simply pack shoes that they already own.

Interesting. ShallowGal will take this under advisement.


So. ShallowGal and family are less than two weeks away from their big Alaska trip. The xanax has been hoarded, PCSguy has been sufficiently coached on his VP of bear management duties. All that's left is the shoe buying.

Nordstrom's half yearly sale began this week. Millie gave ShallowGal a generous birthday check. Coincidence? I think not. (1)

Now ShallowGal doesn't usually panic over buying shoes. It's kind of a gift, my shoe-buying zen. But Alaska is tricky. It's quite possible that ShallowGal punted. She came home with three pairs:

Pair #1:

ShallowGal is getting old and has decided the hell with Blogger and their bandwidth restrictions. Medium sized pictures from now on, baby!

ShallowGal has actually had her eye on this pair of Juicy Couture shoes for several months. Lolita Travelsalot assures us that the metallic trend isn't going anywhere for the foreseeable future. She also said Target has identical knock-off of these shoes for $17 but they aren't as cute. (2)

PCSguy thinks Lolita is a terrible influence on ShallowGal.

Pair #2:
It's entirely possible that ShallowGal has Alaska confused with Tahiti.

Is it possible that for a trip to Alaska there are better places to shop than Nordstrom Salon shoes?

Pair #3:

Now SG is just being silly

Fine. I didn't really buy these adorable Corso como shoes, but I would have if they'd been there. In reality SG bought some black Cole Haan slides that look exactly like the ones she bought in white last year. But she already wore them so now she has to keep them. We'll just put these down as an advance on her BlogHer '08 shoe allowance.

Obviously one of the first two pairs has to go back and ShallowGal must find appropriate shoes for a trip where the temperature will range from 40 to 80 for activities that will include everything from visiting glaciers to stalking showgirls.

I await your wise words of wisdom.

1) Plus the $40 SG saved not buying the crocs cyprus AND a $20 Nordstrom note. There will be no repeat of the Saks debacle today, thankyouverymuch.
2) Which is possible, to be identical and yet not as cute.

Honestly, you know I like the third pair. Corso como makes comfort shoes afterall!

VUBOQ sez "Keep both pairs!"

Also, here is a link to my Family Tree. NC Cuzin is the one with a child.

I like the juicy ones, Keds has them in white, which I am sporting at the moment
