Last night, I was shopping for a pair of black shoes to go with a dress that is very Sexy Secretary. I saw these and fell instantly in love.
I flipped them over to check the price, and that's when the heart palpitations really started. They cost $275. I had three other shoe styles in my hands so I figured there would be no harm in trying on the pricey pair since I was sure one of the others would work out.
That didn't happen. A pair of peeptoe wedges similar to the ones above didn't have a platform, so weren't very comfortable. A pair of slingback peeptoe wedges made flip-flop noises when I walked. A pair of platform pumps with a wide, stacked heel were too wobbly to walk in. These shoes, the shoes that cost $275, were perfect. First, they are so sexy, I want make sweet, sweet love to myself when I am wearing them. Second, they have just the right amount of platform, making them just the right height and easy to walk in. Last, they are so comfortable.
I kept them on for a long time while I texted and tweeted and agonized over spending that much money on a pair of shoes. One of the reasons against buying them was that I had recently bought these slingback peeptoe wedges for a mere $30. In the end, I decided to try the shoes I already owned with the Sexy Secretary dress I had just bought, but I thought about those $275 shoes all night! I wanted them so much.
This morning, I tried the dress on for my husband and put on the shoes I already owned. They looked nice with the dress. I haven't worn the shoes yet so I planned to wear them to work today to make sure they will be ok for the event I'm attending. I wore them around the house while I was getting ready. That is when I discovered they make flip-flop sounds.
I asked my husband if he would mind if I paid $275 for a pair of shoes. He would never tell me I can't buy something, but we'd had a recent discussion about this. Of course he said he didn't mind. To make both of us, mostly me, feel better I said I would not get the tattoo I was planning to get for my birthday and for getting down to 199 lbs. That tattoo would have cost easily $600. So, in reality, I saved us a whole bunch of money when I bought these shoes on the way home from work tonight.
Please note that if you run into me, there is a 50% chance I will be wearing those jeans. I love them.
