as I walked into nordstrom last night with my dad I realized just how long it has been since I went to the mall. and i hadn’t even gone there for shopping! we were having dinner at the café and going off to see the new harry potter movie at the theater down the hall.
walking through the door, though, i was overwhelmed with a sense of excitement and eagerness. the shoe department lay right in front of my very eyes! how beautiful they all are. i passed through the department flipping over a pump here and a sandal there, but i felt.. deflated. the pep in my step had been lost. with work and commuting monday through friday, the area’s blue laws keeping the stores closed on sunday and my new found responsibility of paying lots of monthly bills on an intern’s salary have not afforded me the luxury of the leisurely browse. this, i realized, is why i have not had much inspiration for blog posts lately.
it is very difficult to maintain a fashion blog when you don’t have the time or money to shop. oh woe is me.
