Crazy Old Lady From Palm Beach

Let's start at the beginning...  When I go to the mall in Boca I always enter through Bloomingdales because it is the closest entrance to J. Crew.  When I enter Bloomingdales I immediately encounter the shoe department.  One day I see these super cute smoking slippers with pearl poodles on them.  $150 - set. them. down. and walk. away.  Each and every time I walk through Bloomingdales these pearl poodles catch my eye.  So cute, but not for me at $150.

Cut to Saturday.  I am doing my weekly walk through at TJ Maxx and what do I see in the sale section?  One lonely pair of pearl poodle smoking slippers.  One pair and in my size!!  It must be fate, right?  I grab the shoes and run to the check out to pay for them.

When I get home I try them on and walk around.  They are super comfortable.  But I start having second thoughts.....do I really need shoes with pearl poodles on them?  Will I really wear them?  So I snap a couple of pictures and send them to my daughter.  Oh, she of many opinions...

Me:  "Cute or Crazy?"

She:  "Uh, crazy!"  "Crazy old lady from Palm Beach!"

Me:  "Really?  I think they are cute, I think."

She:  "Definitely, NO!"

Me:  "They were only $50."

She:  "I don't care if they were $5 - NO!!!!"

Okay, we know her opinion.  What is your opinion?  Am I losing it?  Do you think they are cute or crazy?  Would YOU wear them?

    1. I've put them in the car to return a couple of times, but keep hesitating. I'm glad I have 30 days to decide :).

  3. I'm a future crazy old lady from Palm Beach so I actually like them. I think they are fun for the weekend. Besides, anything one has ever had their eye on for a while (and later picks up on markdown) is meant to be.

  6. Keep! Isaac Mizrahi. Quilted. Pop of pink. Pearls. Decorated loafers. Keep!

    Usually I wouldn't like the contrast stitching on the quilting, but it's so Mizrahi. I've tried a pair of his loafers on at Macys and they were very comfortable. I would totally keep them. When my mom says she likes/doesn't like something it influences me. In this case, try to ignore your daughter's sentiments on this one and keep 'em! There are some fashion quirks only the wearer will like.
