I'm easily distracted by shiny objects, particularly ones that have high heels and a red clearance price tag ;-). I had just been in Macy's a couple days before and bought two pairs of shoes. So I KNEW I shouldn't be back. (Not to mention the two pairs I bought online at DSW just a couple weeks ago. Aren't those black heels awesome? I loved them. They're still on clearance at Macy's, FYI, both online and in the store. But I didn't tell you that, LOL.)
So I should have been smart and completely bypassed the shoe department, going straight to the Petites, where my friend needed to go.
But the shoes CALLED to me. I swear.
So I stopped. Just for a second, I told myself. Like a sugar addict passing a candy counter, just to inhale the scent of chocolate.
I found several in my size on the rack, tried them on, and told myself I was only going to buy one pair. But the other women in the store loved them all and even the sales guy drooled over one pair in particular. (though that might have been more out of a guy stiletto thing than anything else). And so I was talked into buying ALL of them.
I don't have pictures of all...um...FIVE pairs of shoes, but I got some really cute black and white ones with bows on them, these neat Anne Klein pumps, some hot Guess stilettos, and a pair of simple denim slides.
And then guess where we ended up later that night? At the mall. Which had...a DSW (if you have never been to a DSW and you love shoes, you MUST GO. It is the HUGEST SHOE STORE EVA. A positive shoe MECCA. Try the online store for great buys, too).
But you all would be proud of me. Even though I came within an inch of buying some Jessica Simpson stilettos, in the end I talked myself out of them.
Because they didn't have my size in red ;-)
(and if you want to read more about my shopping expedition, plus see a pic of the really cute denim slides Cathy and I got for $7.50, marked down from $50, go to Cathy's blog today. She has a picture of the two of us, too, before we went shopping).
