So My Friend Pat Says

Allison, there will always be another pair of shoes.  As in, I don't have to buy every pair I see.  (To clarify, it's not that she thinks I shouldn't have them, she just says it when I'm torturing myself over whether or not to buy the next pair.)

Ok well maybe she's right and maybe she's not but let's just say for arguments' sake she is.

The backstory: those of you who know me know I love a Valentino Rockstud Flat.  And I've loved them more than just a few times...but I digress.

Anyhoo, I've been saying that if they come out with a dark green I may just have to jump and get 'em (remember I've sworn off shoe shopping for

So wouldn't you know I'm midnight website window shopping and suddenly I see that one of their new fall colors is my perfect green!

Arghh.  And there are only two pair left!  Double Arghh.

So the question I return these babies I haven't worn yet to get the green I promised myself?  (And oh ps Pat thinks I should keep these.)

Or do I listen to Pat.  I don't have to get every pair of shoes I see...

But you know, I think she might agree, I might just to have these...

And as to the return issue?  

To quote Scarlett O'Hara: I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow!


  1. I wrote a long post with advice but it disappeared into the ethers. Buy them, try them on and then decide. They may not fit. Sometimes this shoe doesn't. Sometimes when they are in hand it is easier to say, nah, or oh yeah.

    1. It's very true. But I'm afraid of the oh yeah!!!
