Confessions of a Shopaholic

So, remember this post where I was having a major shoe decision dilemma? Well, today I went to Orva to try on the hunter boots (and came home and bought them online for cheaper, haha) but you see, Steve Madden is on the way back from Orva and um... well... those other shoes I wanted were now 50% off! Only $35! How could I not? Oddly enough the 7 1/2 seemed to fit just perfectly with my tights on (shoe sizes are so bizarre... my hunter rain boots are a 6, and might have been a 5 if I wasn't getting the fleece liners) so I got them. I couldn't resist. But I figure if you go back to a store 3 times for something it means you really want them and should get them. Like those shoes, and this book for example. Both of which I now own. See, Orva is near Banres and Noble and so I went there (also for the 3rd time) looking for Gregory Maguire's A Lion Among Men and maybe I had missed it before because it wasn't with his other books, but there it was on the 50% off table! Two things for 50% off today... good things come to those who wait perhaps? ;) Or maybe I just got lucky.

Sorry no outfit pictures. Both today and yesterday I'm wearing almost exact repeats of recent outfits so I figured there was no reason to take more photos. Yesterday I wore the brown dress with my other pair of new j.crew tights (kind of a rusty color... I can't find a picture online)

And today I'm wearing this, and am going to change into my new shoes:

I'm trying to both look put together (I'm meeting some people about possible summer internships today and tomorrow) while conserving clothes for going back to school. A little bit after I get back we have rush (yes, I'm in a sorority, though I would not consider mine to be typical in any way, haha) which involves a week of needing to be dressed rather nicely while not having any time to do laundry. haha. We'll see how that goes ;)

Sorry this is probably the most boring post I've ever written... I was working on some inspiration collages from free German style magazines I picked up on the way back from Switzerland and wanted to post those today or tomorrow... but I got lazy. Plus my scanner is at school. But we'll see... maybe I'll finish one anyway.

  1. I love your new shoes! I've been thinking of getting similar ones for myself.
