A friend of mine has a rule that when you enter her home you are to take your shoes off at the door and use the hand sanitize station. It’s never been a big deal until the last party at her home. That night I wore my really pretty Manolo Blahnik heals because after her home I was going out dancing. I was one of the last to leave the party and when I went to get my shoes, They were covered in mud. Like someone stepped on them. When I stopped home to try and clean them, I sadly found out my shoes are stained this way now. I’ve tried it all to clean them, nothing works. I feel my friend is responsible to help out some way. She has said she has tried to find out who did it but has had no luck. I feel like she should at least help me replace these shoes. They were expensive. Is it out of line to ask my friend to help replace my shoes? after all, I had to take them off to enter her home.

Dear April,

UGH…ruining a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes is just a sin however it is in no way the fault of the host. You understood her house rules and willingly went to her house. Unfortunately it appears some very inconsiderate guest stepped on them.
Damn Girl, why didn’t you place them up high, put them in a secure spot or ask the guest for a plastic bag.
Well, you can’t cry over soiled Manolo’s, but you can dye them.
Try taking them to a leather store and ask them if they can either clean or dye them. I had a pair of shoes dyed for an event and they look like new and fab.
If your friend offers to help you with the cost, wow that’s great, if not it’s your responsibility.
At any cost get those Manolo’s up and running and April I’m so jealous.

Good Luck & Huge Muther Hugs,

One Tough Muther
