Born to shop

I pulled a sickie on Monday (sssssshhhhhh, don't tell anyone!), and, there being a sale on, spent part of the afternoon looking for bargains in my favourite department store. Not that I found any. Why can't I ever find anything in the marked down price range to really tempt me? I'll spot something I quite like the look of, but on closer inspection I invariably find something wrong with it. There's a button missing, or the zip's broken, or the colour doesn't suit me, or it's just not as important I have it as I previously thought. So instead of the anticipated loads of new stuff, I had to content myself with just the one pair of black trousers from the new collection (to be kept pristine and free of cat hairs one way or another -- not sure how I'm going to manage that, but what's the point in having acquired yet another pair of black trousers if I don't?), plus a nice green long-sleeved T-shirt, and various toiletries a girl, with summer waiting just around the corner, can't do without.

Needless to say, I spent an inordinate amount of time squeeing over and trying on several pairs of designer footwear; but even while surrounded by my favourite indulgence at half price on all sides, I couldn't get excited enough to whip out my credit card and spend, spend, spend. When did I become so bloody sensible?

However, I did earmark a pair for purchase in the very near future, though --

sporty but fun, these seem perfect for the summer (if we ever get to see one, that is). They're made of very soft leather, and that colour will go with at least two of my skirts...

How many days till payday, again?

Posting here to say sorry about rejecting your request to join CDS. I forgot - you are a member. I think, initially the community will be for members who have already posted their work on the board. But, if you still want to join and wait until we admit writers who haven't posted stuff there, by all means apply again and I'll do it right this time.

Those shoes look emminently sensible for a person with a damaged ankle. If you're into soft leather, google for Hotter </i>shoes and I presume you know about Echo?

Oh, that's alright -- I only clicked it out of a sense of "oh yeah, CDS" -- I haven't been active in the community in ages.

I beg your pardon? I'm sorry, but...can you honestly see me in those kind of sensible shoes? There are limits, you know!

I thought these looked pretty rather than sensible.

But then I'm working on my laptop and the image resolution is set to lowest.

Hmm. They're okay-ish, in a mumsy sort of way, I suppose. But honestly, my Mum wears Ecco. 'Nuff said.

(I'm a shoe snob. In case you hadn't noticed...).

Very cute. :)

We stopped by various stores last night while finishing up the cell phone battle. I got a couple new t-shirts, because it looks like I'm going to get the chance to wear a lot of them this summer. They were on sale. :)

Ah, the sales! Hours of fun, at little or no cost.

Enjoy your new tees!
