Shopper’s Remorse

Mar 21, 2011

I have been in Charlotte visiting my family since Thursday and one of my favorite things to do while home is shop! The shopping is just so much better in Charlotte. They actually have department stores- Note to Charleston you should have not closed Saks, it was our only half way decent department store. While I was browsing at Nordstorms I came across these Donald J Pilner Cork Sandals. I did not buy them and now I can’t stop thinking about them. They are the perfect sandal for Spring. They would literally go with everything and made my legs look so long. Don’t you just hate when you see something you love and are trying to be responsible by not buying them but then it just eats away at you until you end up buying them anyways? Well these shoes are permeating my brain. Here’s to hoping these shoes are in my closet soon.

On another note today starts the first day of my Birthday week. Yes (Much to my husbands dismay), I still like to celebrate my Birthday all week long although I am no longer in College. My Birthday is Thursday and I can’t wait! Lots of fun things are planned, including a visit from my mom and sister:)

    Happy Birthday Week! I have always had a birthday week. Acutally, at some point I started dragging it out as "the birthday girll all months long"–since my birthday is the 29th of November.

    I hate not getting something and then thinking for days that I should have just gotten it. At least you know that way you really wanted it and it wasn't just an impulse buy. You should order them–you're the Birthday Girl!!

  8. First, happy birthday week šŸ™‚ Glad you're having fun in Charlotte. I think you deserve those shoes too šŸ˜‰

  9. That happens to me all the time!! I usually do everything within my power to go back and purchase whatever it was. šŸ™‚

  10. Get the shoes. I always, always, always regret passing up items that I knew I really loved.
