I have to get rid of some stuff. I have way too many things. I've bought clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc. This weekend I got crazy with shoes. I even got blisters. At church I declared, I am now a fashion victim. Look at these blisters! I was proud. But I was not proud of how much I spent.
Fashion victim to the core, I fell for designer labels.
I have bought 5 pairs of Stuart Weitzman shoes this year. (On sale!)
I bought my first pair of Prada shoes. (Gold sandals)
I tried on my first pair of Manolo Blahniks. (4in heels are too high.)
I tried on my first pair of Jimmy Choos. (I yelped ouch when I tried to stand.)
I bought my first pair of Dolce & Gabbana shoes. (Red peep toe pumps)
I bought the Car Shoe--a strappy black patent heel. (Made by Prada)
I bought white patent Calvin Klein flats. (The ones that gave me blisters.)
I'm not sure what inspired me. Was it making Tall drive me to the mall to get those Calvin Klein flats? Was it that Tall said he loved for women to have nice shoes?
And then I began to realize, some of the other shoes I bought were uncomfortable.
Bye bye Calvin Klein strappy black patent heels.
Some don't match my wardrobe.
Bye bye Bruno Magli white and gold heels.
Some are a repeat of other shoes but with wobbley heels.
Bye bye Stuart Weitzman knockoffs.
Do I REALLY NEED another pair of gold sandals? Even though it's a slightly different/darker shade?
Bye bye Prada gold sandals.
Do I REALLY NEED another pair of black patent anything?
Bye bye Car Shoe with the cute black patent tassles.
Do I really NEED another pair of red shoes?
Bye bye Dolce & Gabbana. You squish my toes.
I salute generous return policies! (And hanging onto $600!)
Here's hoping the Calvin Klein flats will stop giving me blisters on my heels. I'm keeping them.
Shoes!! Such pretty boxes! It's almost worth it just for the box!
