Wow, get your head out of the gutters people!!!!! Shame on you!
I’m talking about the first time I bought the pair of shoes that turned me in to an official shoe fiend. I have thought long and hard about this, pretty much since I began this blog, and came to the conclusion it was this pair. I was a sophomore in college and went to Chicago with my roommate over Spring Break. We of course hit up Michigan Avenue and I spent $80 on these shoes. Remember here friends, I was 19 and not made of money…that was a lot for me at the time. Looking back, I have to say I’m proud of myself for picking a pretty rational pair. In fact, I still have these and still wear these, they look great with tights. They were also the shoes I wore in the interview that lead to my first job after college. See, it was fate that I bought them!
So essentially, this was the pair that started it all. Since then, shoe shopping has gotten better and better with age. I can think of many other special moments with other special people. I’ll make sure to keep reporting back. (Wow, if your head went back in the gutter, shame on you again!)
