Will you spend thousand of dollars to buy a pair of shoes? I always thought they are for socialites with unlimited cash to splurge. Apparently not. I know colleagues who own Christian Louboutin shoes. For those who do not know what these are, they are shoes worn in Sex and the City with the signature red soles.
I used to find thrills from owning the latest bag or shoes. Now, the thrill has worn off. For the amount of money spend on shoes, I would rather take the kids on vacation. Yes, the price of a pair of shoes is enough to take the family for a weekend get-away.
My happiest moments are those spent on vacation; either nearby city or exotic locations, I love them all. And I am going to be true to myself without trying to impress anyone.
Goodbye Louboutin and hello to my flip-flop and the next destination.
