so yesterday's post was serious, and today's post is, uh, ridiculous. maybe. i hope you're a fan of sex and the city so you can understand the silver shoe thing! when i watched the episode "a woman's right to shoes," where carrie's beautiful new silver jeweled manolo blahnik peep toes were stolen from the party, i fell in love with those shoes, and although i didn't know when - if ever - i'd have the need for silver jeweled peep toes, i knew i wanted some. so fast forward a few years until now, and guess what, i actually do need silver heels!
this is the ultimate in frivolity, so bear with me. i haven't forgotten about those heels all these years later, but like i said, i didn't need a pair as i'm sure they wouldn't be worn much. on saturday i met my sister, my stepmom, and one other bridesmaid for a dress fitting for my sister's wedding next june (p.s. i'm going to be a bridesmaid). when i asked her what type of shoes we were to wear and she said, "it doesn't matter what style they are as long as they're silver," i think my heart skipped a beat. that meant i now had a legitimate, bonafide reason to own shoes like carrie's!
so here's the thing: i can be incredibly impulsive when i decide i want something. my sister's wedding isn't until next june, so i truly don't need these now. BUT, i have a difficult, if not impossible time finding shoes in my size (5), and i found a pair that's not only my size, but it's a steal of a price, AND they are so similar to carrie's manolos that i bet i could trick someone into thinking they are real (but obviously joking is no friend of mine. obviously.)! but there is only 1 left in my size. so what do i do? buy them now and covet them forever or let them go and wait until closer to the wedding date to start shopping for their twin? HELP!
