my new fendi shoes



It was by accident that I ended up in the shoe department at Bloomingdale's over the weekend. My intention was to holiday shop for others but a restroom trip diverted me to the second floor, where I came face to face with the above Fendi shoe--the one I have been pining for all season long and was now on sale. Yes, they had my size! I tried them on, walked around, and when I made it back to my seat, three other women around me asked for a pair in their size. Turns out, we all bought this shoe. I would have shared this succes story sooner had Bloomingdales had them in stock online, but it did not. But don't fret: Neiman Marcus is now offering them on sale at 33% off--and there are still lots of sizes left--along with loads of other temptations, such as these Gucci evening sandals (33% off) and this Helmut Lang moto jacket (40% off). P.S. Bergdorf Goodman is also having a crazy good sale. Highlights include this Chloe tweed skirt (40% off), this Proenza Schouler dress (33% off) and this Elizabeth and James silk blouse (40% off).

Love them! Do they run true to size? Like if you're a 9.5 would you still be a 9.5 in this shoe?! Congrats by the way on your find!

Yes, they run true to size and are amazingly comfortable.

I am laughing at "it was by accident that I ended up in the shoe department at Bloomingdale's...". Those "accidents" are how most of us have acquired our closets! The shoes are to die for.

Hi Marlien! I just purchased these beauties in the nude and silver heel combo on sale. How do you wear yours? Jeans? Dress? Midi or mini skirt? Please help :) Happy new year!

Hi Helen,
Let me start by saying I LOVE these shoes. I've worn mine plenty since purchasing them--with everything from jeans to black trousers to dresses and skirts. Since the shoes are a bit blingy, I think it's important to team them with clothing/accessories that are more sedate--things that don't compete for attention, if you will. Enjoy!
