Shoe Heaven and Quantity vs Quality

Where have I been? Have I been living in a cave? No I've been shopping at the lamest mall in the Atlanta area because it's close to my home. But yesterday I was in Buckhead so I stopped at Phipps Plaza to look for these, Tory Burch Revas.

I stopped by the Tory Burch store where I am sad to say the customer service was less than par. By less than par I mean if there's two people in the store and one is looking at shoes wouldn't you ask "would you like to see a shoe?" I guess not, so I headed hereWhere the heavens opened up and rays of sun shined down into the shoe department. I need to get out more often. The sizes, the selections. Gone are my days of looking for size 5.5 and 6 shoes at lame department stores. Nordstrom's is now my shoe hook up. I tried the Revas on and I am sad to say that they looked completely dorky on me. Maybe it's just me and my pointy toe shoe habit but my feet looked too miniature. So I ended up with these.


Much cuter in person and $135 less than what I was expecting to spend, which I quickly spent at Intimacy.

I foresee a lot more miles being put on my car in the future, all in the name of shopping. Which may seem counter to my previous clutter post, but is not. I've learned over the years it's better to buy quality not quantity. In my 20's I was a quantity girl, then realized the error of my ways and became a quality girl in my 30's but felt bad spending the money on myself. Now in my 40's you better believe I am worth it!!

Our mall is the lamest mall in the world. I hate it. With a passion. But it's right there. So I go. Then I get mad that I bothered, since I'm not 15.

I must get out of my bubble more often.

I like your shoes! Very cute! Do you like Intimacy? I have a gift certificate from them, but I have yet to use it. I think it would be great, but I haven't heard from any one that has every went there for a bra fitting.
