So last night I went to the Sushi & Stiletto event at Enso. Subsequently, I just arrived to the pair shoes I had been secretly wanting since August. I’m not sure why I didn’t purchase them then. I just wasn’t sure if they were that fly at first, I think!
So as soon as I stepped onto the scene, I gravitated towards them. All the styles were arranged by size. And there they were stacked high. On display, out of the box, standing proud of it’s print, there they were staring back at me. It was actually a 15 second stare-down/size-up. You know like you see in the Westerns, tumbleweeds, dry air and all?! Then, this chick rolls up on me and says “I was going to get those.” Oh then the guilt set in. “Are you sure? I’ve been wanting these for some time,” I responded. I swear I wanted to just pick them up and run. I always told myself I will never be defeated over a shoe. I’d never let another woman/man walk in a pair of shoes meant just for me! (Yea, I know they’re mass produced. But every shoe I buy has been made with my image in mind, so I imagined.)
So then I said: “Well let me just try them on …” Oh heaven’s door just opened up … there were sun rays/white lights every where. Then I got this feeling inside. I was overwhelmed with so much joy!
The ornament piece decorated my feet with poofy headgear, cushioned my sole, and leveled my falling arch. After muttering pejoratives under my breathe, I looked to the chick and said “fine, you can have them.” Feeling guilty, this chick started picking out other shoes for me … (I turned them all down), only making me more disgruntled about the entire ordeal! I wanted to shout: “JUST TAKE THEM ALREADY!!” However, I maintained my composure.
The one I wanted were in her hands and only for 20 bucks!
Having thought about the shoes all night long, I finally looked them up on Heels and decided that I would just buy them full price!
No these are not Marc Jacobs or even Badgley Mischka’s! Their the Hale Bob Logan heels! I had personal sentiments with this shoe. It’s kind of like a love lesson learned: “When something has such high personal value to you, never wait to see if someone else will pick it up. Grab and purchase it. Make it your own.” It’s the exact thing to do with your personal style. Personal value trumps social value every time! While it will trend in the market, it will stay in sync with your spirit! Now that’s timeless.
Have you been waiting to jump on a new style that’s solely yours? Have you been waiting for society to adopt, purchase, or love on something you’ve been admiring from afar? Don’t wait like I did; jump on it today!
Happy Hump Day!!
The Late Hale Bob Logan which would pair so nicely with my purple skinnies! I’m sure you’re reading this! You better enjoy them!
(Nods head) “Treat them with care.”
