52 - week 20 - pattern
have you ever made a decision that in the moment seemed TOTALLY BRILLIANT but later turned out to be pretty moronic? that is the sad story of me and my favorite pair of shoes - my purple suede prada studded pumps. it rolls right off the tongue, doesn't it? it was love at first sight. i saw them on the shelves at neiman's last call and in a pregnant hormonal surge stupor i ignored the price tag ($850 marked down to $350!) - i ignored the fact that they weren't my size (rationalized in my head that after i lost the "baby weight" they would probably fit) and purchased them. i thought to myself - these are just so beautiful and that's a steal i just can't pass it up!
so out the baby came - off the baby weight went - and then i realized, ummm DUDE your feet don't shrink in length - WTH were you thinking?! straight cinderella's ugly step sister style they WOULD NOT FIT. i tried to sell them online on more than one occasion - but sadly - no one wanted my $350 prada shoes. and i wouldn't part with them for a bargain basement deal - so now they sit. in my guest room. on display. like the fine piece of artwork that they are.
sure they taunt me - telling me how dumb of a decision they were - telling me never to make that mistake again. telling me that they'd pay for this month's groceries - but aren't they just SO PRETTY?! and SPARKLY?! :)
so anywho - these gorgeous gams fit the quota of this week's theme: pattern - and stand for a pattern of bad decision making i hope never to repeat.
