The finish date for doing The Fashion Fast is quickly coming up, so it's only natural that I would be thinking about what my first post-fast expenditure might be. After a year of no fashion or clothing purchases, it will be really strange to start buying for myself again. I don't know how it's going to feel to enter a store, browse, try things on, and check out after not doing so for so long. Sometimes I think that I could go without shopping for longer than a year.... (Someone dare me.)
But after realizing the limited nature of my shoe selection, I have determined that shoes are the items that I miss purchasing most. Not because I have any sort of fetish, but because a pair of uncomfortable shoes can ruin a gal's day. There have been some moments during the fast where I would give anything to run to the closest boutique and pick out a new pair of cute flats, for this simple and sole (!) reason: my feet are killing me.
So, to celebrate the closing of my fast in just a few short months, I intend to purchase a pair of nude, super-comfy, but entirely chic, pumps. Believe it or not, there are designers out there that make a comfortable heel, and I intend to find them!
Of course, this will all happen after my July 15 anniversary date.
