High on Heels...

My sabbatical from blogging is over. I guess I couldn’t stay away. Ok I confess, Supriya forced me to continue! She is my inspiration… [:)]

[The last week was a mess for the most part. Tonnes of things happened. I was insecure about my job, my article was going nowhere and to add the cherry on the icing was “me & him” having a major fight. We did not talk for two whole days. Nah, we did actually but they were more of sarcastic remarks and jabs at each other. I am glad it is over. He was here on the weekend all for me! Yay]

It’s been almost seven months since I started working. And these seven months have ensured that I have a lot of money or rather spending money! I am not a compulsive shopper but sometimes I do get impulsive. And I love shoes. Show me a girl who doesn’t? So well in the past some portion of my salary has been spent on SHOES.

I got my first pair of stilettos on my 21st birthday. Then no shoes buying till me emotionally blackmailed my folks into buying me a 'blingy big colourful stones' wala chappal. [Let’s not get into the costs ok?] Then in early 2008 I bought a lovely pair of heels from Inc.5.


Well from June 2008 there was no looking back. I happened to come across these lovely flats at Habit, Colaba and instantly bought them. Then we went to Matheran sometime in October and I ended up buying three chappals.
On my 23rd birthday I gifted myself two sexy heels—metallic blue wedges and black satin peep toes. Ma was horrified as usual but well I thought it would end here for a while. But come 19th January I bought a sexy pair of silver sandals.


This is my eighth pair in seven months. And I am not even guilty of over spending. Now I need a shoe-wardrobe!

P.S: Ma was upset for a while but well, she fits into all my shoes so no bother! Bf was a lil flustered. He was like just let know how much of salary would go into buying you shoes! //winks//giggles…

Loving them shoes! I am not so much a clothes horse, but a shoe horse. Two years ago I had to seriously put a rein on my shoecrack habit and be content with the ones I already had at home. But I did it. But by the end of last year I was into serious withdrawal symptoms and bought around 4 or 5 pairs to add my collection at home that I do wear! Believe me, I wear almost all of them. But, of course, these 4 or 5 does not count the sexy mama jamas I bought for two weddings last year! :)

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving that lovely comment. It is always nice to meet new bloggers and visit their sites.

Something, somewhere reminds me of "The Devil Wears Prada" :) (No offences intended)
The post reminds me that i have been working for seven months as well. What i must grudgingly admit is
1. Blogging becomes gradually difficult to keep up with
2. I have spent the maximum amount on hitchhiking (the costlier version of it) in and around pune.

Job does that you. College life rocked! :(

@ arunabh

Thanks! And no offense taken! I miss college too!
