Retail therapy….

***NOTE***This post was originally written on January 21st, but because I couldn’t find my camera, wasn’t completed until February 16th.

Ok, so I can’t afford the Jason Wu dress from yesterday’s post, but this weekend I did indulge in some retail therapy.  I have been feeling blue lately and I just thought I would go look at the Dillard’s shoe department.  This is what I decided I couldn’t live without:

They are really cute!  I wear a lot of brown, so I thought they would actually go with a lot of things in my closet.  I was wearing a pair of dark wash jeans when I was at the store, and these little pointy toes peaking out from under my jeans were really cute.  They will also be good for brown pants and a camel colored sweater for work or a brown skirt or dress (both of which I already own).  They were even on sale.  How could I resist?

Then, I walked by a rack of handbags that had been marked down 50%.  One in particular caught my eye.  I picked it up and put it on my arm.  I looked in the mirror.  I loved it.  I bought it, but I am having a bit of buyer’s remorse.  I haven’t cut the tag off yet, because I am trying to decide if I should return it.  I don’t need it – I just love it.

***END NOTE*** Obviously, I decided to keep the purse.  🙂
