But, much to my happiness, I overheard another customer ask a sales associate, “Is there only one shoe, or do you have the other behind the counter?” Of course, they had the match behind the counter! So I hurriedly returned to my beloved striped pump and scooped it up. And, now that they’re mine, I just couldn’t help but feel playful and take a bunch of pictures!
