Alternate post title: New Love
Here is a glimpse of my closet. I'm shamed to show you all how badly I treat those whom I love the most. I am a true girl, I love shoes. I really do. Love them. I do not own enough, mostly because I can't stomach spending more than $20 on a pair of shoes. However, nearly two weeks ago I fell in love and I fell hard.
I was wandering up and down the shoe aisle at Target. It is a regular haunt of mine. I walked past a beautiful pair of shoes that had my name written all over them. For those of you who don't know, Mossimo is really the word for Alicia. Anyway, it was love at first sight. They only had one pair in my size! They weren't on sale, so I hemmed and hawed about it for about 5 minutes before picking them up. I walked around the store with them in my cart for the next 30 minutes. It felt like they belonged to me! At the end of 30 minutes I had to put them back on the shelf. $23.99 was about $3.99 more than I usually allow myself to spend on a pair of shoes. I slept fitfully the whole night knowing that somebody else was going to buy MY pair of shoes. It was the next morning, and I must have whined to James one too many times because he told me to GO BUY THE SHOES! I complied.
