Oops! I did it again

Bought shoes, that is. After months of having been strangely uninterested in frittering money away on footwear, I've made up for my former frugality by purchasing not one, but two pairs. Oh well, they didn't break the bank and they're not anything special; it's just that I couldn't think of a reason not to buy them.

They're cute, aren't they? I spotted them last week, but I was wearing thick socks and cumbersome hiking boots at the time and didn't want to go try them on...but then I kept thinking about them all week long. In the end I just had to put myself out of my misery, and go back for them!

Thank you! I'm quite pleased with both of them. Unfortunately though, after all the mild weather we've been having lately, it appears snow is on its way and I doubt that these will see much wear this week.

Yum, purple! But you, in ballet flats? Yes, I remember you were looking at some glitzy ones in Amsterdam, but I've only ever seen you in heels, even if lower than before lately...

Me, in ballet flats? Jazeker! In mijn jeugd (en nu praat ik over de vroege jaren 80) heb ik zelfs heel veel op ballerina's gelopen. Maar ja, toen stond alles me ook tien keer beter...

En de reden dat jij me nog nooit op platte schoenen hebt gezien is omdat jij zo lang bent, en ik me dus lekker uit kan leven zonder dat dat storend wordt. Mijn Engelse vriendinnen bijvoorbeeld zijn stuk voor stuk kleiner dan ik, en wanneer ik met hen op stap ga, draag ik bij voorkeur lage hakken zodat ik niet steeds boven ze uit hoef te torenen. Maar bij jou kan ik op palen staan, en dan zijn we nog in evenwicht. ;-)

I'm sorry, you can't have them. Well, not unless you come to Holland and I'll show you where I bought them...

(I just checked on the internet. They don't ship their wares).

I'm not a self-respecting woman, because I don't own a pair of ballet flats. Yours are cute, though. *g*

I'm sorry -- it's just that for the last year, ballet flats have been the number one fashion trend in footwear and I had resisted buying a pair all that time...until now. So yes, I am now a dedicated follower of fashion, hence the statement.

You should look into them, though. They're fun, funky, (reasonably) cheap, comfortable, and they go with virtually any outfit, from casual to chic. I used to wear them all the time when I was in school; then one day, they just stopped selling them...

Oh I love the purple ones! The others are a bit too flat for me, but nice none-the-less!

Seems like the purple ones are getting the big thumbs up from everyone! I'm glad.

I know! And mine may look like they've been cut out of a tablecloth, but they fit perfectly and will do me real good service when spring comes along.
