Ignore the cat hair-covered socks, because look what arrived in the morning mail today: a pair of new-to-me Pour La Victoire uber-sparkly shoes via ThredUp.
I love a good deal on gorgeous shoes, and getting $214USD Pour La Victoire shoes worn what appears to be once inside maybe for $23.10 makes me very happy first thing on Monday.

Someone who was a client — I helped her set up a blog to document her experience with breast cancer — and then became a friend mostly over social media has just gotten news of two brain tumours. I swear cancer takes the best of us. I'm devastated and trying not to weep through my partner's book launch.
