…like Bob Stone said in Central Intelligence 🙂
Am I shopping less?
Hmm, doesn’t feel like it [lol]…but I really am…great deals on replacements, and must haves only…and I am strict about what fits in those categories. I think certain months just allow me to better stock up than others.
I even went to the mall Sunday and didn’t buy a thing for myself! I did Saturday but even that was very moderate…running shoes [easy justification] and Banana Republic [new knits, classy shorts, cotton tops]…
Fifty plus percent off of sale prices is a reason to honestly consider must-haves and what is a nice2have that can be added.
Is it a win that I close more tabs than I used to?
I think so…I wish I had arrived at this point sooner…get what I want and leave the rest alone. But as I didn’t, Poshmark is a great way to get some kind of return…I’ve donated plenty and still do…but some things just beg to be sold. 🙂
I also have more days that I buy nothing than I used to…that’s better than a whack on the nose with a rusty poker!
Versatility is the real beauty of these beauties.
…hitting the ground, so to speak, they go with tons I already have…reasonable comfort given the heel height…and I know I will adjust. They fill the gap between grey and a darker brown [granite and walnut, respectively, as per the labels].
Second is do-ability.
I really don’t want to lose my heel-ability simply because I don’t ‘need’ to wear them as a telecommuter. But stilettos aren’t good for schools, tracks, malls, or any moderate walking IMO.
Though there is NO condemnation, I will add even more strictness to my decision to buy ideology :). But at the end of the day, does not getting what you want [like really want] and won’t stop wanting when it is cheap only to buy it later ever work out well for the pocket? No, a huge deafening and resounding no.
