What is it about shoes that make a woman lose her mind?
I don’t have the answer. I’m hoping someone else does, because that’s what happened this weekend when I went shopping with Princess.
I started out with a certain pair in mind. You know that favorite pair in your closet that you have to replace because you’ve worn them to death, and want another pair just like them. Yeah, not going to happen since they’re three years old, but I was on a mission none-the-less.
So after hitting all the sites on-line, and walking through every department store, still no luck. I mean really, it shouldn’t be this hard to find a 2”-3” dark brown pair of thong sandals, that aren’t a wedge—HA! They do not exist, I’m telling you. Well they might, to be fair, but I’m cheap and really don’t want to, nor can I afford to pay $300 for one pair of shoes!!! I’ve also come to the conclusion that I either need to be a gladiator or a stripper by the shoes that I’ve found—neither would have me – I’m telling you!
As you can imagine I’m walking the mall with Princess and it’s not about my shopping needs, but hers (as it always is when shopping with your daughter--LOL). And we go into one of those stores where maybe an XL tank top might fit me (but they don’t sell XL, so I’m out of luck), but they do sell shoes. And they have clearance shoes—I have hit the jackpot of un-needed shoes!!!
I was good, really I was. I only bought one pair. They are Hot Barbie Pink peep-toe platforms, but were too cute to leave behind. And if I would have, I would have kicked myself for it. Okay, so they are a bit stripper-ish, I’ll admit, but did I mention how cute they were!!!
See I lost my mind when I saw them. Couldn’t help it, total impulse, because really, where in the hell I’m I going to wear these shoes? Oh don’t you worry I’ll find somewhere ;-D
So have you ever lost your mind over a pair of shoes?
