What I Wore :: Almost Meeting Madden

As you may or may not have read last week on my blog, Steve Madden made a little road trip to Little Rock this weekend! My friends and I all met up at Dillard's to get our picture made and meet the man that made one of my favorite (top 5 all time) shoes.

 There we are! Standing in line. At this point we'd all gotten there and were in high spirits.

 This is the point when he arrived and we realized exactly how many people were ahead of us.

 This is the point where I asked BB to take my picture with the sign because I figured we might not make it to the front of the line before 3:30.

 Oooh, look! Pretty shoes! At this point, we'd discovered there were about 100 girls who'd bought shoes already so they could get in the VIP line to meet him first. Oh, goody. Now we started browsing for shoes to buy so we could be VIP too.

 And this is a girl posing with Steve. I didn't even wait for one that kind of looked like me so I could fake it. At this point we'd given up. We waited an hour and our Un-IP line had not moved so we decided to cut our losses. I was pretty sad, honestly, but I wasn't sure we'd even get a chance to say "What's Up" at this point.

 Regardless, we all still looked cute and got to do a little shopping so it wasn't a day totally lost. We saw Steve and it almost felt like we were a part of something cool. I guess I should have slipped him my card and asked if we could talk later about six-inch Mary Janes and platforms with sparkles.

Regardless, my trusty Jolly booties were a hit. I'm sure he sensed they were there.

A note on the blouse: I love it, and it looks far more expensive than it's $27 price tag, so I'm guessing you guys will too. It appears to be sold out online - but I just bought it last week, so check your Forever 21 store in the Love 21 section! The closest I could find is a little more pricey.
