I'm on vacation on Oahu, atm, and I went to Neiman's and all the sale shoes are an addt'l 25% off... I love shoes & I love sales, but the most expensive pair I own to date is a pair of cole haan's I bought at the Rack. I made the "mistake" of trying on a DARLING pair of CL's ...little dark brown suede ankle boots w/a kick ass heel that fit like a dream!! They're about $470 including discounts and tax and now I'm wandering around the mall like a lost soul trying to justify the price :devil: or talk myself out of them.... When I go home, I would have nowhere to wear them except work (and hello, I'm a classroom teacher! No way I be on my feet all day in those ankle breakers) but they're sooo pretty. Okay. Shutting up now, thanks for listening to me rant & waffle back & forth. Hopefully on my next lap of the mall, a more serious CL lover will have already bought them & saved me the torment.
