Link of the Day: Retail Therapy

I gave up shopping for Lent. Specifically buying clothes and shoes. I don’t consider myself to be someone who uses impulse Retail Therapy much, but I do believe wholeheartedly in the therapeutic qualities of a well-planned shoe shopping binge.

Given my Lenten sacrifice, I found this article particularly interesting on Yahoo! Finance.




Moral of the story: Happy Shopping!

Shoe Therapy

I have a problem. I love shoes. I love shoe shopping. I can’t walk past a cute pair of shoes without at least checking the price.

Those of you who know me well know that there’s always room for more shoes in my shoe closet. My limited college student budget and space stifled my creativity for awhile, but now I’m back in the shoe finding game.

Yesterday was my semi-planned moment of weakness. It’s been a long few weeks and I wanted to welcome in spring (spring you’re more than welcome to appear early by the way) by purchasing some new shoes! So I went in search of a pair of flats or two (fully intending to splurge on another pair of shoes or two if I found something I liked)… let’s just say despite keeping within my budget I still came out with more shoes than I intended.

My “watermelon” flats that are the new love of my life (the version appearing here is “coral” so it doesn’t show the color that I love so much):

And these I bought in red but can’t seem to find a picture of them not in black:





Let me tell you. Buying two pairs of pink shoes in the same day was probably the highlight of my month.
