Shoe Shopping Emergency ! ! !

Calling All Hot Chiks !

My sweet sassy boy, J, is getting married at the end of May. I’m making a small flock of fabulous dresses in a black Dupioni silk for the other three bridesmaids and myself. The event will be classy, sophisticated and thoroughly Fab - Bu - Lous! The south will learn what a same-sex wedding really looks like without all the bullshit and stereotypes.

For those of you who don’t know, J is family to me even though we don’t share any legal kinship ties. We met while I was a counselor at a summer music camp when he was thirteen and I was twenty-three. For whatever cosmic reason, we became important to one another. He was my little brother, and sometimes even my son, as he struggled to reach adulthood through a toxic foster care system. As adults we’ve become peers (although sometimes for kicks I like to tell people I’m his Mom).

So now that he’s finally getting married, I’m supposed to forget about the nightmares that he put me through when he was a teenager. I’m supposed to ignore the fact that he blames ALL of his sluttiness on me. I’m supposed to pretend that it doesn’t bother me that he’s holding my favorite pair of black panties hostage, and he calls me randomly to tell me that he’s letting their Golden Retriever play with them in the back yard.

I’m supposed to make sure this little Man-Slut of mine has the perfect wedding!

We won't get very far without the perfect shoes ! ! !
This is where we need a Hot Chik intervention.
* No flats
* No stilettos
(it’s a wedding, not a dance club or a key party)

* Four women have to love them
* They must be classy, sophisticated and elegant

Thanks for your help.

Ok, great site - - for shoes that claims FREE shipping, FREE returns and NO TAX!!!!

Can you believe it? Besides which...
the above are really cute!!!!

I apologize. I am still getting used to the Mac I bought and can't figure out how to make links yet. You will have to do the ol' cut 'n paste.

Cricket - You're a Hot Chik for life! Besides, you're a genius when it comes to lingerie!

Bryna - Those are really cute. I like the satin. I can't wait to see what else they have.
Thanks for the tip sweetie.

"Get FOUR women to *love* the same pair of shoes?"

I have an idea......

(slowly places gun under chin and begins to squeeeeeeeeezzzzzzze)

First of are making the dresses?! OK, you are truly the shit! I wouldn’t know the first place to start.

Secondly, what’s your son doing giving your panties to his dog?? I know there’s a killer explanation for this one...

Thirdly, those dresses are going to look gorgeous & I’m sure you’ll add your special touch to them.

In my opinion, these shoes are classy, sophisticated, elegant & simple enough for 4 women to agree to love together...& look at the price!

I love the ones Chick posted, and also there is a pair of Steve Madden's listed on the same page. Kick ass.

Good luck sista! Making all the dresses is the Hot Chik-y-est thing EVAH!!

Whiskyfoxtrot - You underestimate the power of Hot Chik diplomacy. I already got them all to agree on the dress. And, now that I've got all my Hotties helping me, I will not fail!

Chick - I'll get back to you on the story about the panties.

The sewing thing is part of my mother's diligent training to prepare me to become the best little wifey-mother-homemaker on the block. I learned the skill, but missed the message by a mile.

Thanks for your confidence in my skills. I'll post pics after the grand event.

Oh, and the shoes are excellent!

Pink - Yes, I love the other shoes too. That's a great shopping site. Decisions, decisions...
