All American Girl.
As I was undressing yesterday, I realized that by pure chance, I was dressed head to toe in American brands. Huh. In other news, Jason Mraz concert was rad. The only thing that spoilt it (slightly) was him not playing any of his old songs, and the annoying teenybopper who keep trying to stand behind his girlfriend who was half standing in front of me. Grrr.
Also, I found the most gorgeous slightly-above-the-knee-but-not-quite-thigh-high-non-lace-ups-that-fitted-me-perfectly-around-the-calf-area-which-hardly-ever-happens-leather-boots. And you might be asking why didn't I get them. Well, for one thing, they cost $600, and the other, they cost SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS!
But I still really want them. So here's the big question. Would it be fiscally irresponsible of me to get $600 boots given the current economic situation? Although I have been buying things here and there, I haven't paid full price for anything (aside from food and rent) in a long while now. My mom reckons it's too expensive, since they aren't even branded, and not worth the price, but I think they are truly beautiful, although I'm not too sure what I'll wear them with. And the leather is soft and nice, which I would be very worried about creasing and scratching, although it would be almost inevitable.
So dear readers, what should I do?
If I do get them, they'll be the fifth (?) most expensive thing that I own, and definitely THE most expensive shoes I would have ever gotten (EVER), which is why my mom thinks that for $600, I should try getting a pair of Loubs or Blaniks instead.
PS> Please ignore the weird positioning of my left hand. I think (hope) I was in the process of moving it.
