Yep. There I was walking in a nice restaurant in Lexington when my heel broke. The heel to the fab shoes I have been sporting and loving. Sure they are from Forever 21, and cost about $20 but I expected at least to get a few wears out of them?! Is that too much to ask? I barely avoided face planting into a party of 20, and caught myself on the waiter instead.
Luckily I was in the presence of an engineer who tried his darndest to fix said shoe with a a little manly handy work, however, yours truly ended up solving the problem on her own. She is pretty handy when left to her own clever devices. 😉
Attempt #1 – fail.
Attempt #2 – success.
That is right ladies, I spent the evening with a jank duct taped shoe. Thank heavens I was in long jeans, so you couldn’t even tell, and so what if I walked a little funny. At least I handled the situation with grace and laughed it off.
Has anyone else had this problem with a F21 pair of heels? I was so heartbroken the next day, when I fully realized my new lovelies were headed for the trash.
