Say Hello to My New Friends

Part of my winnings from the tarte summer contest was a pair of Tieks. I had not heard of these prior to this contest. For those of you like me, Tieks are a high-end "reinvented" ballet flat that can collapse to be the size of a wallet to fit in your purse.  Many of the styles are made from the finest Italian leather and vegan fabrics. Tieks are a favorite of Oprah's as well as many other celebrities.

So... as you imagine these are not cheapy cheapy. Tieks range anywhere from $175 to $300+ for a pair.  This is definitely way out of my price range, so as you imagine, I was thrilled to be receiving a pair.

Here is how they came packaged! Absolutely gorgeous!

Pretty fancy eh? 
So I was really excited and opened them up immediately only to find that they are too small.  I now have to send them back and try a larger size.  

Here they are with my toes squished and all, ha ha!

My mission to see what $175.00 shoes feels like continues. Please stay tuned........
