When: Last Friday, when the heat arrived finally!  Summer has officially begun albeit a little late.

I stalked these heels for some time at one of the higher end consignment stores in Boulder, Common Threads.  The not so high heels were $90 when I first looked at them, along with a pair of twisted Louboutin flats that caught my eye.  I put both on hold for 24 hours and then went to do some research at home.  The flats were listed for $99, so all things being equal it came down to which one I would wear more often and what was the better value.  The twisted flats were selling on Ebay for about $200, while the Jimmy Choo's were $595 and fairly new.  You can see which ones ended up coming home with me the next day for only $80 as they had been marked down!  Score for me!  

Searching for items that you don't know the name for can be a bit challenging.  It is best to start with the obvious, say glitter pumps for the Jimmy Choo's or twisted, cut out, or box toe for the Louboutin flats.  Another idea that often works well is going directly to the brands' site to see what they call each type of shoe they sell.  You may gain new insight on words that will benefit your online search.  Happy researching!
