when life hands you rainstorms, make shoe purchases...

i had all of these plans for the weekend... that included a solid round of LIC exploration, self portrait practice, and general artistic kickassery (or something). and then the heavens opened and dumped about forty-seven million gallons of water on the planet. i don't know if you know this about me, but when there's that much water outside, i feel absolutely no need to get out of my jams. so in my jams i stayed. i even skipped the sia show that night. martha - gasp. katie - gasp. tara - gasp. yes, i missed the sia show. i even tried to get on craigslist last minute and get rid of my tickets (wish i'd thought of that the day before....bygones), but no one emailed me back. i watched seven movies in one day instead.

so yesterday, when i woke up to a beautiful sunny sky, and semi decent temperatures... i made sure that my "day of shopping with the girls" was extra-awesome. my friend S works for the parent company that owns nine west... and they were having an employee 50% off discount weekend. ummm yes S, i WILL go shoe shopping with you this weekend. thank youuuuuuu. and in honor of all things awesome, here is what i purchased:

black sunglasses


these sunglasses in the brown/tan option... very aspen. and i feel rather badass in them, because... well obviously they're just rather badass.


these next two shoes are for work and were purchased at nine west (at half price):




and the next two are from dsw (god i love that store), and are steve madden and calvin klein respectively...
(can't find the actual picture of the shoe... but it's sort of like this in red)




and then of course i spent all night prancing about in my jams with these shoes on... cleaned out my closet, got rid of about 15 pairs of shoes that i haven't worn in a long time (aka i don't like anymore).. and made room for my new boxes.

it's important, when one is feeling not very feminine or girly, to buy an inordinate amount of new shoes. just to balance everything out.

next up: skirts.

a) I *gasped* too, I'll have you know ("you" being the lovely reader with whom Tara felt it unnecessary to share my Sia-gaspyness)

b) The shoes are ROCKIN', especially the last ones.

c) After skirts comes Tops in Boston. Boston Tops. We're going to shop "wicked hahhd."


(Sugar high... It's the only possible explanation.)

Love the shoes! I have a version of the black pointy-toed ones, and I HEART them hardcore. So comfy and cute.

i love that in a span of one day, my lovely pms has made my feet swell a little, so those lovely black pointy toe shoes just blistered the bajeezus out of my left foot today.

I do envy your lack of bunions, sweety. I'll be over here, shopping the Dr. Scholls catalog.
:P

nattie... the non existence of paulette bunion was only brought about after a very painful surgery. so don't get toooo sad about the scholls.
