Everyday, I get emails from GAP, Old Navy and a store called Piperlime. Everyday, I delete their emails without opening them, but I never click the button to unsubscribe. What if I might want to spend $3o0 on a pair of shoes? Yesiree, these gorgeous suede, leather lined, patent leather heeled oxfords cost $300. And there, my friends, is the rub. Even if I had $300 to throw away on shoes that will be good for only one season and not return for another 20 years, (I had shoes just like these when I was in high school) I wouldn't. So I sit and wait until a reasonable facsimile arrives in Target, Payless or even Dillard's for significantly under $100.
Until then I shall be happy to wear my teacher shoes to work.
