It's True Love

Coming up with a title for this post took me a couple minutes. I thought there must be a pun related to wedges, but I couldn't think of it. So I went with how I really feel. Anna has always told me that she loves this pair of shoes, or that pair of shoes, and she can't live without them. I didn't get it at first. How can you love shoes so much? But then...  I've only had shoe love one other time, it was for the Dolce Vita for Target ankle boots. But I've fallen, hard, again for Lela Rose for Payless Bolivar Wedge.

Seriously!? They don't sell them in the store. I wanted to go put them on and just strut around the isle in them. Even take a couple pictures for the blog. I was more than disappointed to not find them. No dress up? No "See how good they look? I need them!"? (( This being said to either my Mom or Matt, as my birthday is a little over a month away. ))

The problem? Their price-tag. I'm cheap. I feel guilty about spending more than $20 on anything and that is a 'splurge'. Most of the shoes I own I received as presents. All but about 2 pairs of them (which have been with me for years) are from Target or Payless and didn't cost more than $30. So how can I convince myself to cough up $50 on shoes?!

OH and did I mention I'm still jobless. Yep! 2 words .. Affirmative Action. I won't know for sure until Wednesday (I was told I'd start this past Monday). So if you pray, or cross fingers, or send positive vibes, I could use them.

Well I'm off to make a cast iron, deep dish, pizza. I saw the recipe on Emma's blog and had to bake one, it looked amazing!

Yum! Photo taken by Emma
