After taking February off from shopping while participating in 30-for-30, I've hit the stores (mostly online) with a vengeance this month.
Shoes, as usual, have been calling my name.
First came these cowboy boots. Ariat came up on Rue La La. I showed my cousin, only serving to enable us both. Now we're going to be boot twins.
Next, I was looking at a list of 10 "unknown" shoe brands and came across Chelsea Crew shoes at Lulu*s.
After some (unnecessary) encouragement from my mom, I selected these lovely pumps. And to make myself feel a little less guilty, I am getting rid of my current red heels. It's not about more, it's about more beautiful.
My brother's birthday was yesterday and I also got him shoes. I had actually gone to the mall with an idea in mind. Unfortunately his size-14 feet limited my options.
Then I signed up for Amazon Student (thanks, grad school), which included free 2-day shipping, and picked out these babies. He loved them, I loved them, everybody wins.
Finally, (yes, I was out of control. thank you for noticing) I saw shoes on sale on Amazon from my favorite brand, Seychelles, and snatched them up.
I had stopped myself from buying a different pair from Nordstrom that was also on sale and still regret it even if my wallet doesn't.
Needless to say, it's probably time to take a break from shopping. The only thing in my favor, besides really great taste in shoes (if I do say so myself) is the fact that I am actually getting rid of shoes as these come in.
That must count for something.
Also, some of the improvement in our economy can probably be attributed to my addiction.
