lately, i’ve been thinking a lot about this article. as a big fan of ann patchett’s books, and her store parnassus books in nashville, i loved how eloquently she described the lessons learned from a self-imposed shopping ban. i have had shopping ban flings in the past, but decided after we got back from greece that i was going to do one in earnest for 2 months. this means no buying anything not from a grocery store except to replace something empty or beyond repair.
since a lot of the content on this blog has been cataloging my new purchases, i will do my best to fill the next few months with other things.
first off, this gorgeous pair of slingbacks i added to my collection this spring. the heel height is perfect (3.5″) and they manage to be both sexy and work appropriate.
