I'm not generally the kind of girl who makes purchases impulsively. In fact if I see something at a store that I really want I usually leave without it and only return to get it if I find myself still thinking about it days later...and if it's no longer there or I don't have time to go back I take it as a sign that it just wasn't supposed to happen.
And I'm not the kind of girl who shops to make herself feel better when she's feeling down. When I'm feeling down the last place I want to be is at a mall, or in a retail store of any kind...and I know, there's the web and all, but I like to feel things, especially if they are going to be on my body. I'm all about the feeling approach to shopping...and come to think of it for life in general for that matter.
So, this past spring I surprised myself when I impulse bought these sweet shoes:
But I was travelling, and they were on sale, and my soul needed a little boost...what better to give the soul a little boost than a new pair of zebra striped ballet flats, right? And for under $20 how couldn't I? I decided then that they would be my new studio shoes. Not for shopping, not for errands, not for driving...for the studio, so when I put them on my mind knows it's time for creativity.
