A few months ago, I developed a case of shoe lust. My impending unemployment helped stave things off, kicked up some financial antibodies, generally kept the bug at bay. But this week I developed a fever, broke out into a rash of irrational purchases, and am now in the depths of a full-on footwear fanaticism. It all started when I went to a Dolce Vita party for editors and buyers. It brought me into close proximity with THE BOOTS (holy jesus they're every bit as beautiful in person and yes I'm probably going to cave before fashion week). There was an open bar. There were free shoes (see the sex-on-a-stiletto-black-cage-numbers on the left below)!
One new pair of shoes should have been enough. But that just unleashed the fervor within. So today after a breakfast meeting, I wandered by the Steven store on Ludlow, and they were having a firesale. Two pairs for $50!!!!! So, naturally I bought 5. Because that is practical for someone that is funemployed.
And Friday I head to the leather capital of the world: Argentina!!! Someone please knock some sense into me! Save me from myself!!! (or at least compliment me on all of my beautiful new shoes!!! Don't they just bring a tear to the eye!?)
