Vacation and Shopping Don't Mix

As stated in Shoes, I am the cliched shoe-a-holic. My favorite shoe shopping store is DSW. It is miles and miles of shoes; it's my "heaven" really.

Well, I'm on vacation right now, which technically started July 1, but I have been working on-and-off since then. I like to work and tend to get bored when I'm off for more than 2-3 days. Usually when I'm bored I go shopping. The problem with that is that during summer vacation I don't get paid. So why am I shopping? I think it's another addiction, really.
Last week, I had a few days free and found myself at DSW. Boy, did I shop. I found so many pairs that I wanted. I was able to cut it down to a mere 4 pair. Yah, that's right, I bought 4 pairs of shoes last week.
This is pair #1

This is pair #2

This is pair #3

This is pair #4 - my favorite of the bunch
Then this week Lisa and I went to Santee Alley downtown in the Fashion District. We shopped for knock-off handbags. My plan was to buy one, but I bought two. Two is better than one, right?

Here's bag #1

Here's bag #2

Here's a close up of the knock-off D&G label

Why do I do this? I think it's a sickness.

I need to go back to work.


  1. I fully expect to see all of these shoes on your feet within the next, say, two months.

    You've been having too much fun.

  2. My favorite shoe is the t-strap one too. With that being said, I could live forever with just flip flops, year round.

  3. Ooooo, the last pair of shoes is my favorite too! And although I don't carry a purse, I like the second one best!

    AND, I don't get paid in the summer too...but I have only bought 2 pair of shoes since the last pay check....that is not counting hte shoes for my kids :O)

  4. I love the second pair. Plus, I saw purse number one in person! Please don't say you need to go back to work, because when you go back...I go back.

  5. Though I'm not a shoe person, at all. Those are all very cute!

  6. Knock off????

    I thought that was supposed to be our secret!!!


  7. I so miss shopping with you! I'm glad some things never change! :)
