I started off my month right by visiting the Fluevog store on Melrose over the weekend and picking up my new Elizabeths! Thanks so much to my hubby for taking care of the last layaway payment as part of my anniversary/Xmas gift. Woohoo! I will definitely be sharing more of those shoes in later posts. I found out that I did the right thing by buying the green colorway in my size immediately (or rather putting it on layaway immediately) since the Melrose store has completely sold out of all their green pairs TWICE already. (Yes, their second shipment this season is all out of the green pairs.) I'm glad they didn't turn into the shoes "that got away." I would have felt really terrible.
But of course I couldn't leave the store without trying on more shoes. I didn't go completely crazy, yet I still found more pairs to put on my ever-expanding wishlist. I have to say, the lineup this fall has been particularly fantastic. And all the green shoes are making me happy, from the Elizabeth to the Kathryn and Kanawa and to the pairs below.

|Love the colorway and the fit! I am a Radio fan. I love my purple PRI's and white CBC's and want yet another Radio in my life (and more). These ARD's are size 6, which is just about right for me since Radios run 1/2 size small.|

|These are lovely but unfortunately too loose. They come in the same green as the Chapot (above), but this brown is a lovely warm colorway as well.|
|I finally tried on the electric blue Rosy. These are GORGEOUS but sadly too big in the size 6. I was wrong about my previous assessment of the Hopeful family running 1/2 size small. They're more true to size. Even the Luxons are a little loose, although their woven maryjane straps keep my feet in pretty well. I can't say the same for the Rosy, though. :-(|
