Seriously wanting these...

Why is it that one minute I can block out the savvy marketing campaigns, the pretty magazine ads, and the rest of the entire fashion blogosphere and then all of that effort disintegrates as I convince myself that "I want those! I need those! Those would make my shoe collection awesome!"

If you are not familiar with Rumi of Fashion Toast - she has a fashion blog that I have read religiously since she started in 2008.  When she first wore these Zara boots I started drooling on my keyboard.

I know they wouldn't look half as good on me, but she has a way of making me want everything she wears. Now she's selling them here for $100.

Ok honestly, I don't need black ankle boots..
and if I saw these in a store with the studs on them, I would not buy them.
AND, I wouldn't spend $100 on shoes or clothes right now... so why am I yearning for them this much.

I hate the internet sometimes! Anyone else do this?!

Constantly! I just remind myself that I'll never wear them, then I look at my already ridiculous, under used shoe collection, & i'm good!

I've fallen in love with many a pair of impractical shoes as well! I try to remind myself that I have nothing to wear with them, but that triggers the shopping reflex in my brain. By the time I'm planning the whole new wardrobe I would have to buy to match the shoes is when I wake up to how ridiculous I am :)

Hmm, maybe you can try what I did (not on purpose) the other day...

I was online window shopping, trying to find a pair of flats and a pair of work heels. I found them and "Added them to my cart." I kept the browser window open for a while, didn't enter in my credit card number or anything. Did some other work on the computer, then just shut down all the windows (including the browser with the online shopping). I figure, if I REALLY want them, I'll go back in and add them to the cart again, but I haven't had that desire too, so I guess (for now) I don't really NEED them, just want them.

Maybe you can give that a try with your boots. But if you find that you want them enough to re-open your browser, find the boots and place the order, then it's something that you do really want. You'll make the right choice. :)

Thanks for the advice you guys!!!

Don't worry, after I wrote this post I felt crazy that I even considered it right now. I obviously don't "want" them that much so why the heck would I buy them? Lol
