emma: day 9 \ shoeaday
i debated this shoe for awhile. it’s certainly a trend, and i am always gun shy when it comes to trends. i am fickle when it comes to fashion. the minute i see it on jennifer lopez or katie holmes, two women who have ruined perfectly good clothing for me in the past – i’m not bitter, i set it aflame. when i finally made up my mind, the only pair left was in the payless at the ballston mall. having recently moved out of ballston and having recently told myself i would never cross the VA state line again, i was reluctant to return to the only mall in the area that can claim having the market demand to support a loom store (it’s true). nevertheless, when you need a shoe – and when they have it at payless for $37 – you have to get it. i’ve left needed items in the store before. and regretted it. for.e.ver. yellow japanese raincoat, sophomore year of college. i’ll never forget you.
