Breaching impossible

Posted in Inspiration, Shoes, Style, Thoughts by styleantagonist on March 6, 2010

Wearing Dorothy Perkins floral motives puff sleeved dress, Balenciaga inspired booties, Rimmel 260 Funtime Fuschia.

 i can impossibly imagine me wearing a real Balenciaga or Sam Edelman bootie. First, obviously it would cost me a bomb. Second, it would also cost me a bomb… Hmm. However, i suffered much a struggle in trying to get over it. Thank God that i have discovered a local online blog store that brings in ‘designer-inspired’ or ‘fashion-inspired’ shoes all the way from Korea (if i am not wrong). . i almost could not believe my eyes and was quite stunned when i first glared at these boots one night when i was browsing through the net to ease off my shopping addictions after a hard day at work that i don’t even passionate about. It’s all worth the money for now considering my financial health in an intensive care unit at stage. i always thank Him for the path in preventing me from splurging into ‘expensive-and-could-not-afford buys. i gave a thought, many many times with that thousands of bucks spent on fetish-looking-booties-that-i-know-i-would-not-even-wear-it-out-in-public-not-especially-in-a-sub-urb-name-Kuantan-except-for-blogging-purpose. Phew! :D i could do good by getting a plentiful collection of vintage dresses for myself and the many important things that i always almost forgot to do like car painting & overhaul, a decent Western cuisine family dinner treat and a problem-free handphone for my boyfriend.

i wonder, how many of us as ‘fashion-bloggers’ overindulged ourselves with designer’s-labels just to feel good about ourselves in it and in the end, ended up feeling empty and devastated all over again? And the cycle continues… Do you? As for me, yes. How do you cope with your temptations & money when it is getting out of control? Any suggestions? Tips are welcome here. Would love to hear from you. Good night & Have a nice weekend ahead!

    You look absolutely fabulous, gorgeous dress! It’s great you found an alternative to designer shoes, these booties look fabulous. I’ve always thought it’s a waste to spend a lot of money on fashion. Staple pieces that reflect one’s personal style – sure, something that would stay in your closet for years is justified. But for a piece that you might or might not wear twice is not worth spending hundreds on. At least not for me.

    i’ve learned that i prefer to be less anxious about my finances, even if it means i don’t get to buy the next cool trend that’s hot on the blogs. think ahead to AFTER your purchase; if you know the gratification from the purchase will not be enough to make up for the frustration of not having money afterward, then don’t buy it. it’s worked to curb my shopping habit. nowadays, i don’t even go window shopping anymore. i’ve also been learning to buy only things that i know i’ll get a ton of wear out of (no more h&m, f21, zara junk). just my suggestion!
    i LOVE the boots, though.
