I am feeling a little Edward Cullen-ish for the temptation I put before myself today (like the Twilight reference? I am such a junkie on those books lately, I'll spare you the details... it's not pretty). With some time on my hands and a touch of boredom I wandered over to Nordstrom Rack this weekend. I'm not shopping these days, or rather, buying these days. Shopping is allowed... for "research purposes" strictly, of course.
Enter Tory Burch. Yes, TORY BURCH. At rock bottom prices. When I saw the little "T" emblem smiling up at me from the shoe racks... I may have audibly starting mumbling. Something to the effect of "T-tt-ttt-tory B-bb-bbb-burch?" I found three infuriatingly cute pairs. Wanna see? I tried them on and shamelessly took pictures right there in the store... if I can't have them in my closet, at least I can have pictures of me wearing them.
Cute magenta (they look orange in the pic... but weren't), basket-y, sling back flats. $85.00
Next up, Tory Burch Flats in black patent... $69.00
These I could just cry over... Tory Burch wedge/platform sandal again in black patent... $79.00 I had to take a top and a side shot... excuse the pedicure (or lack thereof, it is February in Michigan after all).
Would you even believe my strength that I put them right back on the shelf and marched right out of the store (stopping only to check out the handbags quick of course... this is research people - important stuff!) So tonight I am sad. But proud.
And there is hope, I will find amazing shoes there next time and likely the time after, etc. After all I have scored some seriously good shoes from that particular Nordstrom Rack in the past... Michael Kors, Donald Pliner, Steve by Steve Madden and plenty others.... pretty much every pair I own.
