To Cop or Not?11:30 PMCarla Florendo
In the lifestyle required of a fashion blogger, shopping isn't a choice but a necessity. There's always something so energizing about acquiring fresh new picks to style for an outfit post and ultimately blog about. It doesn't even have to be a full look - a statement necklace, a pretty skirt, sick pair of boots - one would totally suffice.
Unfortunately for us average individuals with limited funds, there's a line between what we can afford and what we choose to afford. And so in that regard, I have become quite the indecisive shopper, partly because I find a great amount of joy in purchasing pretty things for a minimum price - the way I see it, the cheaper you had it for, the prouder you should be - and partly because I cannot resist the allure of real covetable luxurious items that I have always, almost given into.
In that effect, I'm faced with this dilemma:
Should I or should I not purchase this fabulously looking bow pumps by Aminah Abdul Jillil?
I am irritatingly, incredibly, overly, obsessed with these that I haven't been able to get them off my mind. For three days now, I'm battling myself because I can't weigh in the pros and cons in buying. They're pricier than the ordinary pair of heels I'd normally purchase but, let's be honest, these aren't just ordinary heels - point taken. Also, Penguin thinks they aren't too expensive, considering that I would pay for almost just as much as I would for a pair of sneakers (Jays, anyone?). So yes, justified.
But is adding $80 for shipping on top of the price, plus receiving them after a month and half justifiable?
Enlighten me, please...
