Today I went to Macy's to pick up a few things for a New Years Eve OOTD video. Christmas is not even over and here I am thinking about NYE. I really dislike going to the mall. A few things happens; 1) I get extremely irritated by the horrible parking, 2) I cringe when I have to spend money and 3) I am easily enabled.
I was extremely good today. I went in. Grabbed what I needed. I conquered and got the hell out! After Black Friday, I don't want to hand over my notes for clothes ever again!
I also decided to bust out the new Tory Burch Elina Wedges just to break them in. Boy were they EXTREMELY comfortable. I was in them for 3 hours, including taking twenty something jumping shots and coming out without blisters.
*Tory Burch Elina Wedge Bootie here. Read about how I picked out these shoes here.
*Forever 21 Basic T-shirt
*Forever 21 Anorak Vest
*Forever 21 Cigarette Denim
*Express Belt that came for free with a pair of shorts I bought.
*I have no idea where I got this hat. I want to say Kohl's but it has been in my closet for over 6 years! I couldn't give it up because I knew one day it will be suitable for me to wear it without looking too stupid.
-I didn't mean for this outfit to be completely Forever21. It makes my heart happy to know that the whole outfit was less than $50.

Welcome to my addiction. For 2013 I have decided to indulge my shoe loving habits by starting this blog. As with most blogs, the life span of it is pretty obscure. Do I plan to accomplish my ambitions? My heart crosses it's little veins and silently hopes that I do. Of course, my excuse for not maintaining most of my inter-web goals are due to a little something called "life".
One thing on my bucket list is to own a beautiful collection of shoes. Not just designers, but also affordable quality shoes.
With this blog, I hope to explore the world of that is the "designer" shoe. In doing so, I have set out a budget each month where I will buy one designer for less than $300. I will compare it to "lower" brands and share my opinions with my readers. If in the future I can handle a more hefty budget, I'll consider buying shoes that are in season. For now, let set it at $300 or less. After all, a girl has to eat ^_~. And Pay Mortgage. And Car Insurance. And take care of an obese bunny.
A few things that I definitely don't want to happen to this blog (and probably will happen anyways). Warning: Mean K.L below.
1) I don't want anyone to think that I am bragging about my current/future collection of shoes. This is simply for me to explore my love and the architecture of shoes.
2) I know speculations of how I can afford these things will arise. I am comfortable with people guessing and assuming. The truth is, I came across a shoe goddess.
3) I don't want anyone to think that I have changed from the girl who would rather thrift her things to a "snobby" brand lover. That girl is still there, she's just exploring another side of her. If you don't like this girl...just simply enjoy the girl on YouTube.
I can understand when starting something new (change), people will react differently towards it. I can't change any negative reactions, but that is inevitable. All I can say is "Hey! I love shoes!"
If you share my vice, how about you join me on this journey. Hopefully we all can learn to appreciate shoes for more than "Ohhh look how cute they are!"
