shoes. you torture me.

These have been quietly haunting me since they appeared on shopbop at the beginning of the year. And they are still there. Except now they are 50% off. And I, like, srsly need them. And they have my size. Still.

ummmmmm. Shopbop please make them 70% off. I could buy them, but I don’t need them at all (even though I just said I did). I work at the beach and I only wear flipflops and we haven’t been going out as much as of late so if I bought them, they’d just be added to my stacks of pretty shoes that live in their boxes that I wear every once in a while but mostly just like having because I love shoes.

See how I practice restraint? Perhaps one of you will go buy them and they’ll no longer be available in my size. Then I can stop thinking about them and move on.

Or they will go to 70% off and I won’t have enough willpower left to resist.

    I've been through most of your blog, because I just fell in love with it after a friend recommending it.
    You should get those shoes. The royal blue with your hair and skin would be amazing.

    These would be tough for Destin Weddings on the beach in Florida, high heels are bad in the sand.

    I just saw that these are now 70% off – you deserve them for practicing self-restraint! Unless you already have them…

    Wow ! those shoes would liik great on the beach for a Florida Beach Wedding in the Destin,Panama City Beach or Pensacola beach area where the sand is white as snow, wouldn't they be bright ?? lol
