Pleasant Surprise

When I first got these Orange-Red Urban Outfitters pumps, I wondered if I had made a mistake in asking for them for my birthday.  I thought they would be the Red-Orange ones, which have more red in them, because I didn’t know there was a difference between the two.  When I received them and saw how orange they were I was worried that I wouldn’t know how to wear a pair of orange suede pumps.  (Can you blame me?)  Now, whenever I wear them I am sooo glad I have the orange pair instead of the red.  Somehow I’ve managed to find a lot of ways to wear these puppies without having to try too hard, when initially I didn’t think I could wear them at all!  Whether my style has evolved to grow into them or whether they were always meant to be, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by these shoes that I once feared were a mistake.  Don’t you love when that happens?

Has that ever happened to you?  Is there an item in your closet that you’ve been pleasantly surprised by?
