I know we are in a recession and on the verge of the worst economic climate in decades. I am also fully aware that since I am currently unemployed in said recession, I certainly have no business spending money frivolously. But could you really look at those babies above and blame me for bringing them home and calling them my own?
Since I made the purchase while implementing recession-like strategies, I figure I did a good thing. OK, so they weren't on sale, like the rest of the shoe department was, but are you going to hold that against me? I mean, I didn't buy the other two pairs I wanted that were on sale ALSO. This is a giant step for me.
No, I implored the shopping "love it law", which clearly states: "The final decision on a purchase must hinge on whether or not you "love it". There is to be no grey area here. You either love it or you don't buy it." These were a no brainer.
Cuz, you know, I need them...I need them to wear with my jeans. The multiple pairs of jeans that I have that are too long and need a heel? And I need them to go along with my 6,473 other pairs of shoes that I have in my shoe arsenal. And they are sooo pretty. Just because the economic climate is all gloom and doom, it doesn't mean I have to look the part. Look good, feel good; I always say.
So what if they were more expensive then the two pairs I wanted that were on sale, combined. Again, I didn't buy those too, so I made out better in the big picture. Maybe I am finally growing up and learning to budget my money more effectively. It's possible.
Or maybe I just won't eat for a week to justify this purchase. I could stand to loose a few pounds anyway.
