I want to drift away in my new pair of Aldo Caudle Wedges, er, kinda!
I originally walked into Aldo looking for the coveted "Kerbow" spotted on Lucy Lui in beige:
Surprise surprise, it was sold out in my size at the two Aldo stores I went to, so I tried on the size 37 at both stores and thought maybe I should order these in 36. With Aldo I am cautious with their shoe sizes since I have super wide feet and toes, sometimes the 36 works and sometimes I don't even try it, I'd rather not break any bones, ya feel me?
Verdict? I did like them and I knew they'd fit in 36 if I ordered them, but I fell in love with another pair, it was like they were made for me (almost). Behold, the newest addition to my ever growing shoe collection
What do I think of them? Since the straps are leather they are very accommodating of my wide feet and they don't pinch me as hard as you'd expect from a shoe that doesn't make my feet look bigger, instead makes them look smaller (to me at least). Now, I've read reviews on women wearing these all frikkin day long, umm, I have stupid feet that don't appreciate heels all day long, umm, I don't have a limo driver or anything, I take the metro for goodness sakes and I run everywhere. So, no, these will not last me all day. After shopping around in these (yes, I changed into ma new babies in the dressing room of Bebe trying on dresses) for a couple hours and doing errands, I noticed an irritation on the bottom back portion of my right leg/ankle! Can it be, a cut from the shoes!?!?! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the shoes cut me (insert irritated face here). This isn't the first time to have this happen to me, I have a pair I use very rarely due to this glue or string issue (can't figure out what's cutting me), I have scars from the first pair and I now have one due to the new pair. This leaves me with three options, (1) return them and pray I get my money back, (2) get them repaired, but can they really repair this is the question or (3) just do nothing like I did with the last pair? I think I'll opt for option numero dos, repair. Here's a shot of the part that irritates me, it's the top right portion of where the zipper ends and it digs into me!!

So there you go my lovely readers! Anyone else ever have quality issues with Aldo shoes?
Oooo, I'll leave you with a pic (or two) of the new puppy we picked up on Friday!! He's 7 weeks today and he'll be a full sized pomeranian (8-12 lbs).
He didn't let us sleep a wink Friday night, okay okay, we did sleep, G slept...but me, yeah, I slept 1 hour.
Here you'll find my nephew showing Rocky some love!!
I'm still recovering from exhaustion due to being a nurse/chef/maid non stop, poor G had pink eye, a sinus infection and a "flu" then add watching the little booger, Rocky, making sure he doesn't do number 1 or 2 anywhere in the house! Plus my mother fell catching the bus for work on Saturday, sprained both ankles and scraped both knees, so mother's day was a bust, her being on bed rest and G being isolated from the world, we had to reschedule for next weekend, which is when Salvadoreans celebrate mothers day anyways, lol. Yay...okay, enough rambling, love and peace my brothers!!
