Shoes?? I 'm getting desperate!

Hey ladies, I have BPics a week from tomorrow and I'm looking for some sassy heels to wear. I don't wear heels much because DH isn't much taller than me. The heels that I do have are very much "work attire" and aren't sexy. My biggest issue is that my feet are kinda big (I wear a size 9) so I can't wear most of my friends' heels.

Anyone have any sexy/strappy/hot heels that are a size 9 (or close to a size 9)? I'm mainly looking at the ladies that are fairly close to me because I don't have much time to get them and it'll be tough to sneak around since the Pics are a surprise for DH....

TIA :)

    So, I know this is going to make me sound like a totally awful person, but oh well....
    Since the shoes are just for bpics, why not buy a pair of super sexy heels, wear them for the shoot, and just return them after? They won't get dirty/scuffed/etc in the time it takes to do the shoot. This way you can get something really fun and totally out of character and not worry about it.

    I know, I know, I'm a horrible person.

    Bean - this is actually a really good idea. And one I never thought of. And also don't know if I have the balls to pull off... =X

    Madam- I'd help but my smallest shoe is a size 10.5 - I might have a 10 somewhere, but I'm not sure they'd be what you're looking for.

    I'd say go with Bean's devious plan (insert evil chuckle) - it's definitely a good one - or see what Charlotte Russe has - they have pretty sexy shoes for relatively cheap

    Thanks for all your help girls!!

    Drink - I am an idiot and didn't even think about sharing stuff with you!! Your session is right before mine on the schedule too! Let me know if you find anything good...

    Bean - I am still considering your devious plan.

    TCT - I hadn't thought about getting something for cheap. I will probably only ever wear them again for bedroom purposes because I seriously never wear heels with DH... but if they aren't much $$ I'd be okay with it.

    Thanks again :)

    I'm actually with Bean on this.  However, check out the return policy before you purchase.  I know a lot of stores like Forever 21 will only give you store credit for returns.

    Also, I failed to mention my distate for your small feet (read:jealousy), because I was CERTAIN you would have quite a collection. Damn.

    I wear a size 9.  I have some hot red pumps if you want to borrow them.  I'll PM you my email address. If you are going the buy and return route you can always use zappos.com.  They ship really quick and have free shipping for returns.  Then you don't have to face anyone in the store.

    Hit up Kohls. Their return policy is great. And they have Candie's heels. They're always pretty sexy.


    I have a size 10 pair of red satin and black heels... I can always get them out to you somehow.

    I found my bpics shoes at Marshalls/TJMaxx... They will return anything! I bought shoes just for that event, though I had all intentions of keeping them BUT you would never of known I wore them after my pics....


    Also not sure who you are using my Kamila Harris had shoes there! My one gf cant wear heels, medical issues, but wanted to wear them to look sexy... SO Kamila had her put them on and stand in them... not walk *thats where the medical issue affects her* and even though they werent the right size (too big) you never knew!!

    I wear an 8.5 or I would try to help! Good Luck... And I will bet you money your DH will NOT care about your shoes ;)

    My pics are with Sarah Schulte and I don't think she has shoes available for the shoot... Although, it is a great idea!!  And you are probably right about him not caring about the shoes. Truthfully, the shoes will be more for me anyway!

    Madam,
    I am a 9.5, let me see if I can find the shoes I bought for mine.. I may still have them, or I may have donated them since I knew I'd never wear them again.

    Honestly since you wont be wearing them "out" you could always buy a pair and return them the next day, you wont be scuffing them up.
  • edited December 2011
    And I totally skimmed through and didnt read that Bean is just as evil as me and already suggested that........
    I feel like such a scammer today, between agreeing that Amer should steal her neighbors cable, and now this.

    This is very true. I am thinking about swinging by Kohl's/Marshall's/TJ Maxx tonight while DH is at grad class... Let me know if you find your shoes, it would be a good excuse for a Cosi lunch :)

    I'm in the same boat as you - I do not own any sexy heels. My BPics are in June and I think when it gets closer I will beg someone with my size to let me borrow their shoes. Size 5 anyone? I also love Bean's idea!!
