And then I went to H&M the next day and spent much more. But that’s a whole other topic. For now, let’s focus on the fact that I only spent $15, which is a miracle considering that I walked the entire length of the Lakewood Shopping Center and visited all my favorite stores. This was right after an hour of swimming and no food, so I’m actually proud of myself for not caving into the temptation known as Auntie Annie’s.
(Then I went home and stuffed my face with a bowl of Ramen + egg whites + Pepper Jack cheese (it’s weird but try it!) + chicken dumplings + kale. Yeah! I know! It’s the weirdest unhealthiest + heathiest combination ever and I both enjoyed it thoroughly and regret it immensely!)
So I have been dying, DYING to get some pointy heel pumps. But I’m also very particular. I need them to be a certain height–not too low and not too high and I need the pointiness to be JUST pointy enough. When I stepped into Charlotte Russe, it was only to brave the jewelry section and see if, for once, I can find anything I like. (Nothing to do with their jewelry selection, more to do with my lack of interest in jewelry at all.) They’re having a buy one, get one for $10 sale on shoes, so I figured I’d check it out. But none of their selection really worked out, except when I stepped near the clearance section. And that’s when I spotted these GORGEOUS neon pink pointy toe pumps!
I’m in love. And then I checked the price. Only $9.99. And in my size. And it’s like…this is the moment I’ve been waiting for……
Right now, they’re on the Charlotte Russe site for $28.99 (but as part of their buy one get one for $10 deal), so I definitely nabbed a steal there.
I’m so so happy right now. I had no place to wear them, being the lonely loser and hermit that I am currently–well it was Sunday and all I really wanted to do was stay home and read a book and maybe attempt to sew something–so I just wore them while I lounged around the house. I pretty much spent an entire afternoon drinking tea on my couch and staring at my new shoes. I know. I’m aware of how sad this sounds. I swear, I have friends. They were just busy.
Having such a round face, I can hardly find the right sunglasses. They have to be flat with rounded square lenses, and they have to be large enough to fit my strangely large head and to also make my face appear smaller. Because when I try to wear smaller frames, I look like the Hulk as he erupts with
hunger, I mean anger.
I walked by these Aviators–which usually tend to make my face look like it’s droooooooping–and for some reason figured I should give them a try. And I actually love them!
They’re now my favorite sunglasses. The nose-piece elevates them slightly so that my huge cheeks don’t hit the frame when I smile. Plus, they were on sale for $3 (down from $6). Boom. You best believe I’m go’ng to buy dem shades. (That’s right, folks. You can take the lady out of Westminster, but you can’t take the Wet-min-tuh out of the AzN BbY GrL.)
Thus concludes my TMI Friday. I was so excited about my purchases, that I had to share with you guys. What are you shopping for this weekend?
