{Thankful November} 27: Shoes

January 4th, 2012 | Rachel

Join me in the comments or on your own blog as I give thanks every day this month.

I’ve managed to ween myself off buying shoes entirely, now that my income is drastically limited, and every penny I have is earmarked either for the bakery or for the move.  Well, there was that sparkly pair of shoes I bought last month for Steve’s mom’s wedding, but that was an extra special occasion.  Totally.

Still, there is no denying the complete emotional reaction I get when faced with an adorable pair of shoes.  It’s cruel, really, and I don’t get it.  The best I can do is tear myself away before the attachment becomes too strong to resist.  I can’t even look at certain stores now.  Anthropologie.  ModCloth.  Anything located on 5th Avenue between 50th and 70th streets.

Instead, I am going to be thankful and content with the shoes I already have, such as the beautiful Mui Muis pictured above, which I bought in Italy during my post-bar-exam travels.

Shoes, I both love you and hate you for the magical powers you have over me.
