What is it about a new pair of shoes that can make a girl soooo happy? I can't answer that but I can say that I smile every time I see a cute pair of shoes. These ones were no exception, plus I actually needed them. No really, I did! Honest! The summer sandals that I normally wore broke so I had to find something else suitable, right? Ok, so I have flip flops and slides, I no longer had sandals per say. Definitely not brown, strappy, cute things to parade about town in. These sweet things I found calling my name at an Aldo outlet in Brampton the other night. It wasn't love at first sight, but as soon as I tried them on I knew it was a match made in retail paradise. Normally I wouldn't have gone for the wedge, even though I am not exactly blessed with great height, but the cork is so comfy to walk in I can still use these every day. Sigh.
Now that I have gushed about my most recent purchase, has anyone ever heard of freeganism? I caught a bit of Oprah today while I was folding laundry and it was pretty interesting. People live off as much free stuff as they can to make a statement about consumerism and to try to limit their own out of control buying. Hmmm, I do get happy when I come across free stuff, but how far is too far? Food and everything. I don't know, but it does make you think about all the 'stuff' we buy.
