-A Call For My Split-Sized Mirror Image Trunk Show (Higgins Mill) Twin-

A long shot, but why not. My right foot is a 9.5D in Higgins Mill shell, but my left foot is a 9.5B ideally or a 9D. I'm flexible on makeup- more concerned with fit- so if there is someone out there, wanting an HM, who has the mirror image foot issue, and is just compromising like me, PM me!
**In other words, if you ideally want a LEFT 9.5D and RIGHT 9B or 9.5D, then we can coordinate makes and order two pair in both sizes in order to switch left/right accordingly.**
Perfection.
Find me, mirror twin. Find me.
Sorry, there was a key typo in the sizes in the starred paragraph, now amended:

Well I was naive enough to think that two TS orders would quench the thirst for new shell but I still have my eye on a bourbon McNeil.
Any opinions yah or nah?
Not too many LWB in the closets (no light ones) and now I know the McNeil fits (just ordered a green pair).
Would a brown shell belt work?
Some say it pairs with a lot of pant colors and others seem frustrated trying to get it in the rotation.
The new pictures of bourbon look lighter than last round. No burnishing? There is quite a variance in colors/value as I look for AE images here.

October shell sale?
They have it every year in October. Usually 15% off. Last year they had it, but then in like November they had $200 off. Never saw shells discounted $200 before. I don't believe we will see that again.

But I expect that like the last few years we should see the 15% off in October sometime. Don't have any insider info, just a thought given they've done it for a while now.

Inquiring minds want to know...

How many brushes do you have? What is your system? 2-3 or close to 1 for each color?

Just two. One for brushing shell and the other for everything calf related.

Still can't believe I woke up today to find a ton of University shoes magically appeared. How odd is that? Where did they come from? Was Ms. Caleres watching me?
Just graduated I imagine!

I like the bourbon color. The undertones are a bit cooler when compared with other lighter colors like walnut, chili, etc. I think they pair great with cooler fits: grey, navy, olives and taupes with cool undertones.

Absolutely! If you saw the TS2019v1 photos, the bourbon Macs were stellar!
Ima get one more pair myself of shell this time. Its going to be a Bourbon Mac in all liklihood.
