she told me how she really wants one but can't justify spending the money. i totally sympathized. especially after just having my personal realization #3. as i was sitting down to get my first round of shots she proceeded to tell me that she couldn't spend the money because she had just purchased a pair of christian louboutin shoes that cost $2,000! i tried to contain my astonishment and asked if she had a special occassion for the shoe purchase. she told me that she wanted them and it was her birthday. she hasn't even worn the shoes outside just slept in them.
i try not to judge or compare other's decisions to myself but when i heard about the $2,000 shoes that aren't to be worn i started to feel a bit better about my financial choices. it is all about priorities and perspective.
a couple of examples of christian louboutin $2,000 shoes are below. still think my $300 iPad was a better purchase, but to each his/her own.
