Makeup bores me. Purses are a necessary evil. Scarves aren't exciting. Even jewelry, though fun, isn't terribly enticing.
But shoes. Every once in a while, I stumble across another pair that so stun me with their perfection that I can't get them out of my mind. We were wandering around Dillards, actually looking at men's shoes for new work shoes for Angel. I somehow found myself in the women's shoe section (how did that happen?) And before I knew it, I was running back to Angel, cradling this black and white oxford-type shoe in my arms. "Look at it! Isn't it perfect?"
Angel was hesitant, "I don't know...it isn't sparkly. I only like sparkly shoes."
"But these look like the perfect shoes! I could wear them with dresses or with jeans or slacks or anything!"
(That seems to be my reasoning behind all shoe styles that I love. Remember how I argued that Doc Martens could be worn with anything?)
I've actually had the idea of getting a pair of oxfords for about a year now, but I've never yet found a pair that was perfect. The cheap ones didn't look nice and the expensive ones were just that, expensive! I found out that I could get these shoes for about 50% off, which made the final price $30. Angel reminded me that I still had Christmas money from my parents and grandparents, so that clinched the deal. I came home with new shoes--the kind that make me smile every time I see them on my feet!
What's your thing? Shoes, purses, coats, dresses, jewelry, makeup? Or are you one who finds none of this very frivolous stuff interesting?
