extravagant
today i went to the biggest city near me to shop for school shoes.
they call them "slippers" but they're pretty much those sports sandals (like adidas or nike). those rubbery one solid strap across sandals. i think they're ugly. they may or may not be comfortable, but i've never thought them attractive.
at my old school, i wore the visitor slippers for a year. they were super cute - platform, faux leather that was a metalic color... almost silver but a burnished silver. and had a flower design thing on the front.
but since i'm transferring schools, i had to get new slippers. i visited the school last tuesday and wore their guest slippers. they were too big. and they were masculine and not very attractive.
so today i bought a pair that will make me 2 inches taller, and the soles are squishy and soft. comfort and not hideous! yay!

i also bought a new winter coat. i was hoping to find one on sale, but the sale ones were all not what i was looking for... and the one on sale that i liked - was abercrombie & fitch, expensive, and was too thin (i wanted a nice thick warm coat).

so i went to bean pole. yeah... i know. expensive too. *bites lip* i bought a pretty, expensive, warm coat. it wasn't on sale. but it looks really good, and it's thick and warm. it's also mustard yellow. heh. the sales lady was really helpful.
they were super happy - and i like my coat. so we all win today.
i'm justifying the price in my head... i'll wear it a long time. i needed a new coat. i didn't see anything else i liked. i have been putting off buying a new winter coat for a year (i knew i needed one when i first came here, but i made do with the one i have). and not only is pay day coming up, i get a contract renewal bonus. smilies/icon_smile.gif

now i just have to stop procrastinating and pack nd get ready to move.

Coats are a necessary investment. Like underwear and breath mints.smilies/icon_xd.gif I still need to get a warmer winter coat. It sounds like you got a pretty one!
