Shopstipated again. This time I'm specifically Vacation shopstipated. I've got more saved for a vaction than ever and we can't figure out where to go. Perhaps because this vacation has to equal or surpass Paris. Perhaps because ... no, it's that last reason. It can never live up to Paris. Why even try?
However, my vacation shopstipation is countered by my shoe shopping regularity. Every pair of shoes I see on the internet is adorable and I must have them. I know the two brands of shoes that fit me, and so far I've bought these:
(Three of them are being returned as soon as they arrive because I found them for 40% off at www.6pm.com.)
Then I saw these on eBay and snatched them right up:
Never heard of the Think! brand before. Thirty bucks! I don't know if they came like these from the factory or if they were embellished. Don't mind the wear on the insoles: I'm swapping them out for my orthotics anyway.
Then I started to look into this Think! brand. I kept thinking "Oh, those are cute, how much - THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS? ARE THEY NUTS?"
I'll need to wait a while until these end up used on eBay. Some rich old artsy ladies need to die first before I can get their shoes.
Peeptoe / peepheel shoes for the heel fetishist ...
Mayan shoes for 2012 ...
And I would even hide Spunky and my newly-eroticized heels for these shoes:
(I apologize for the Dooceiness of this post.)
Maybe I need to take my vacation fund and break it into multiple smaller vacation funds so I can spend it with less pressure. A "We'll Always Have Paris So Let's Lower Our Expectations" fund.
Or perhaps I'll get The Descendants out of my head and start thinking about Kauaii again. Such problems though, huh?
