For the Girls

Boys, you can make fun of me all you want, but this one's for the girls. (Okay really, what boys read my blog? I think only my relatives...)

Anyhow, here's a picture of my new shoes! My discount at Banana is very good (50 percent off 5 items a month, 60 percent seasonally, and 30 percent off sale, for those of you who care), but even with it, I still can't afford many items! I'm thinking maybe I can buy one...maybe two...items a month. It really is nice to buy something that's classic, high quality, and will get a lot of use.

Today while I was working, a co-worker asked me what I'd buy if I could buy anything in the store. We had fun walking around (the store was essentially empty), imagining what we'd buy. She told me she had worked at JCrew over the summer and had spent every cent she made on clothes. All I can say is that that isn't going to happen to me! We've got much better things to do with our money...like buy groceries, pay the electric bill, and contribute to the second richest Catholic institution in the world, next to the Vatican. (A customer told me that today in a most serious tone. It made me laugh.)

Then after all this imagining with my co-worker, I told her that my husband and I had only brought a carload of things out to Indiana and that's all we plan to leave with. So I won't be collecting too many clothes. She was stunned. I'm pretty sure her wardrobe wouldn't fit in two blue tubs. :)

So girls, do you like the shoes? (25 bucks, baby!) Should I keep them?


  1. Yes! Of course you should keep them! They are so cute! Shoes are so much fun to buy. Its exciting because you actually use shoes a lot! Those look like definite keepers. I love you!

  2. We're very much in sync girl! I bought a similar pair on NYC Ladies Night.

    That's a great discount! I'm sure if you used the discount on something really useful/longlasting, even Ryan would be okay with that. Make sure and photo us what you buy! XOXO.

  3. Rachel bought a pair shaped just like that but teal with white polka dots. It must've been the Ladies Night thing to do!

  4. Darling! And so functional! That's always a good thing! So much fun! I would have trouble if I worked there!

  5. YES! Thos shoes are wonderful.

  6. I love the shoes! Definitely keep them (especially for $25). Also, I am SO impressed that all you had was one carload when you moved. Seriously, that is very impressive.
