Aversion to Pink

2 Sep

I LOVE these shoes.  I’m actually kinda amazed I even bought neon pink shoes being I have this life long aversion to pink.  No joke.  I HATE pink.

My search for these shoes started when I saw these beauties at Nordstrom Rack in Union Square:

Stuart Weitzman Neon Pink Snakeskin Peeptoe Heels

I absolutely loved them, but they were over $200 on discount and made of real snakeskin.  Yucky.  So I started a month-long online search to find a pair of similar, vegan pair of neon pink snakeskin heels.

These beauties are Qupids, and cost me $19.99.  Can’t hate that.  I also got them in black just because.  Why not they’re only 19 bucks?! 

I also love how these are kind of the vegan love child shoe of the Stuart Weitzman ones as well as the platform pumps Bethenny wore on the season three Real Housewives of New York reunion show.  While watching the show all I could look at was her shoes.

Between realizing I love these shoes, and now while writing this post and noticing I designed my blog with lots of pink accents (totally subconciously btw) I now realize I’ve finally gotten over my aversion to pink.  Okay, well I guess it’s only specific to neon or hot pink.  I still hate baby dusty rose girly-ass pink.  Some things will never change.
