I bought them three years ago with my friend Stephy at a random discount designer shoe store in Orange County. I believe the clientele consisted only of older women, so these booties were on super clearance. There were exactly two pairs left, a bright purple pair in her size and a subdued purple in mine, and the next day, after an 8 hour day of school work, we drove up in the dark of night with our new shoes to San Francisco for grad school/job interviews. Every time I wear these shoes I feel a little nostalgic and I reflect on how much my life has changed. Wow, all this from a pair of shoes.
