Olivia P, what shall I do?

So I was on The Sartorialist (my fave blog) the other day, when I came across this photo of Olivia Palermo:


For those of you not familiar with Olivia P, she’s the major b from MTV’s The City. Major b or not, this girl knows how to dress. And therefore, I love her. But it wasn’t Olivia P herself that caught my eye in this photo, it was her SHOES. When I first saw this photo, my eyes zoomed in on those lace-up ankle boots like a tractor beam. Ok that was a bad metaphor because I don’t know what a tractor beam is – I just remember it referenced in Dumb and Dumber. Note to self: never use metaphors when you don’t know their meaning.

Anyways, those shoes instantly grabbed my attention. Not only were they absolutely glorious but I knew I’d seen them before. Oh but where? I literally could picture myself looking at them online, zooming over the image and crying inside about their price. But, ahhhh where?! I racked my brain and the first thing that popped in my mind was Topshop so I ventured over to their website and sure enough, the boots were there! I felt I deserved some sort of prize for having such an immaculate memory so I put the damn boots in my shopping cart. Since I often get a really bad case of buyer’s remorse, I give myself a day or two before purchasing online.

So I waited a day and what do you know, they’re out of stock. I nearly threw my powerbook (yes, I’m old school) out the window. WTF?! I need them! Must. Have. Them. Please, Sir Phillip Green, put them back on your website! I’m desperate. Then again, Topshop does still have gray in stock. I can’t seem to jump the gun, though…
