I have sworn off shopping until my friend comes to town this weekend. She's flying allll the way from Massachusetts to Minneapolis just to see me! We have an entire day of her trip dedicated to the Mall of America, so I've been holding off on purchasing anything until then. It's been really hard, but also pretty good since I haven't spent useless money and I've been able to put together a list of things that I absolutely need. Don't you hate when you get home after a shopping spree and can't even remember what you bought? That is a really good way to waste money. So, I suggest looking through your favorite mags, blogs, celeb street shots, and whatever else you need to compile a list of your season look. This will make shopping more efficient, and economical. Also, check your store's websites to browse what they have, so that you can be on a more direct mission once in the store, rather than lolly-gagging and oops, I have 19 things and I can only bring 6 in the dressing room? What gives. Any way...
I spend a really vast amount of my time obsessing over shoes. They're porn for me, I just freakin love shoes. Now that I can say goodbye to my winter boots and hello to my chic flats, fun sandals, and sexy open-toe heels...I'm on the hunt. There are like 2 weeks out of every month where I stalk my favorite shoe sites for my next victims, and here is the shortened list I've come up with of what I NEED. (Don't you love that word?). Actually, kinda sad. I haven't blogged a thing because the list of shoes I want is so long, I had serious anxiety about the amount of time I would have to put into this one post. Problem? Eh.
If you're feeling generous I'm currently accepting donations to my shoe fund. Hey, a girl can dream right?
|Gianvito Rossi - Winged Pump|
|Steve Madden - Stelth|
This shoe has been driving me NUTS. I first saw the Gianvito Rossi pair on Gwyneth Paltrow. Then, Steve Madden made my dreams come true with "Stelth", more budget-friendly. Now, I'm just freaking out about which color I want. I also saw an even less expensive pair on ASOS. So these shoes really fit any budget.
|Boutique 9 - Baste Fringe Ankle Flat Sandal|
|Shoe Mint - Audrey|
|ASOS - Liberty|
|Steven by Steve Madden - Vampy|
|Jeffrey Campbell - In Love|
|Shoe Mint - Garbo|
|Jeffrey Campbell - Don't Cap Toe Booties|
