after spending 3 days in bed reading and surfing the net
I craved some retail therapy...
therapy that internet shopping could not satisfy.
I wasn't looking for anything in particular...
I was hoping that something would shout "buy me buy me"...
It's side of my self that I have not yet shared...
let me introduce this side now
"I need to shop"...
(don't be too shocked)
I need to eat
I need to sleep...
Today I woke up and said "I need to shop!"
Need might sound desperate...it's only a word
don't be too bothered by it's use here I couldn't find a better one...
Mother used to say when she felt blue that a new hat was just what she "needed" to cheer her up...
I guess that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!
I looked long and hard at handbags and found a very nice Nanette Lampore bronze mettalic cross body bag but after wearing it for half an hour and glancing in the mirrors as I cruised the clothing I decided it was too small...and at $250 reduced from $375 thought that the mettalic finish might date quickly.
You might ask why I tried this bag on and wore it so long...
I feel one needs to assess and scrutinize bags very carefully...they need to "fit my lifestyle".
Furthermore, I do not like to return merchandise...
I am lazy in that area and dislike any confrontation with clerks.
Some clerks can be rather tedious when dealing with returns...and it's not as if I have removed tags or forget my receipt...I have all that with me.
I have been known to donate things that I couldn't be bothered returning.
I didn't find any garments that screamed out to me...lots of sale items that were odd or too trendy...and the basics are already in my closet.
Then I detoured through the shoe department and I found these...or rather they found me!
Hello Hostess...look over here...they practically waved at me.
Others waved too but for different reasons they did not come home with me.
not one pair but two
and two of the same style
one conservative and versatile
and the other purely for fun
I know this might seem odd
the thought did cross my mind
I put it down to the effects of the flu
which is still lingering
ever so slightly
flats + comfort = Happy Hostess
I can see some of you fashionable high heeled devotees shaking your heads!
flats and kitten heels are me
I feel much better already
but satisfied for the moment...
and tomorrow is another day...
Have you cruised the sales?
What did you find?
An investment piece
something cheerful and fun?
