ell, to be honest, I can think of a couple dozen things worth telling you about. But in the hectic run up to my band's performance this past Tuesday night and then dealing with the aftermath of all the things at work I've had to catch up on because I chose to take a day off, I have been running non-stop. At least that's how it feels to me. You'll have to ask my partner in footwear fantasizing, Melissa, whether or not I've been anything other than a moving blur in her field of vision. But in between the earning of the mortgage payment and the practicing of the bass parts and the writing of the stories I write for both my band and my job, I have taken a moment here and there to gaze longingly upon the occasional item of footwear.
Okay, probably more than an occasional item.
But there's a method to the madness. Sometimes a shoe just doesn't seem priced right for me to want to take the plunge. Then all of a sudden there's a sale. And that bootie or that knee high or that whatever because enticing enough to take a gamble to see if it will indeed satisfy and delight. Such was the case this past week with the BCBGeneration bootie named the Renegade. I spotted it on Nordstrom.com a couple months back. But the "chunky wooden sole" was so obviously not that I steered around it. Even to the point of not mentioning it here. Sorry.
The price point wasn't bad, though. $130.00 seems reasonable. But I have a ton of black clog boots already. It just seemed like money better spent elsewhere. So since this style was not endowed with any "wooden goodness," I moved on to other shoes.
But you know how browsers are these days. You do any shopping on a retail site, and the items you've looked at are bound to pop up when you visit another site. Well, thank goodness someone's started to figure out how to monetize our internet surfing. What ended up happening for me, though, is that that BCBGeneration bootie I was feeling kind of "meh" about kept popping up to catch my eye when I'd be off looking elsewhere online.
I'm sure you've been there yourself. The intrigue begins to grow. You start to think that item you've considered isn't that bad a choice after all. And then BANG! You notice it's been reduced in price. And suddenly you go scrambling to find your credit card.
Well, that's what I did. And here's what the BCBGeneration looks like with my work outfit for the day.
Time permitting, I'll tell you soon about the other twenty-three things I've come across that I should be passing along. But Melissa's visiting at the moment, and I promised her green tea cookies. I must get to baking!
