Cheap shoes

There have been plenty of times when I have promised myself to not buy any more cheap shoes. The older I have gotten, the more I try to make sure that my shoes look decent, that they are comfortable, and ugh, that they are - dare I even say it - practical. Cheap shoes are hardly ever any of the above.


I stopped by at DinSko on my way home from work. I dug into the sales baskets and these two pairs came home with me.



Total spent: 25 euros! The beige ones (a bit last-season-Prada, but who cares) cost 15 e, and the blue satin ones with an in-built platform were 10 e.

Hello Waves! I thought this video at Youtube might brighten your Tuesday...it's about kitties, so first of all, HELLO, it has to be wonderful. :)

But it's so clever and sweet and funny...it's a bit long, but closer to the end, there is.....well, yodeling...and if you can just watch to that part, you will have the biggest laugh, I bet! It is the funniest thing I have seen in ages. Have a great Tuesday Waves, Chris R.

ps--hey, if cheap shoes---if ANY shoes--help make your day a bit brighter, buy-buy-buy!! :)

ps--inexpensive, btw (and of course) doesn't always mean cheap-looking...those are very cute shoes!! And I tell you, Waves, if $25 euros can be spent to make a person a bit happier, then that was a very wise purchase, indeed...

I know all about the cheap shoes trap! Now I, too, am trying to avoid it. Quality is definitely a nice thing to have in shoes you wear regularly. It just sucks to find nice shoes that will break after one season.

But DinSko and the likes offer quite nice treats that can be worth it if you know you'll only wear them once in a while ;)

edward: thanks!

Chris R.: I was laughing out loud at the yodeling! The video certainly made me want a cat even more than before, if possible. I am still trying to figure out if I should have one or two...

vasiliisa: I have a bit of a shopping hangover after I bought these two pairs... I don't even want to know where (not to mention how and by whom) my new shoes were manufactured. Well, I hope I will wear them enough to make up for supporting such unethical consumerism...

:) I'm very pleased that the video made you laugh, Waves! I laughed out loud at that scene, as much from surprise as from joy...I could not have ever imagined that I would be seeing such a thing, and I have a really good imagination! :)
And if you can arrange it, yes please do get two kitties! They will soo love having company, while you are away in the world taking care of business. If possible, I really recommend getting kitties from the same litter...they are already used to each other, so there would be no difficult adjustment period for the little cats. And final recommendation...if you do find two little friends to share your life with, I have found it better to get two girl kitties, because whenever I have had a boy and a girl, the male has always sprayed to mark his territory (but really, it's MY territory...I'm their...parent, I'm the alpha kitty, darn it!! :). I had a wonderful male kitty for 17 years, and when he was by himself, though he was lonely, he was a wonderful kitty, but when I brought home a stray girl kitty, he sprayed up a storm (sorry, ugly allusion there! :), because she was invading his turf. I now have the 5 stray kitties---all female, three from the same litter---and not once has any of the female cats sprayed (at least I have never ever found a puddle of piddle, or smelled their scent on my carpets or furniture). But you're very smart, so you likely know all about kitties, and now I shall stop giving advice! :) Chris R.

ps--I'm always soo happy when new people find your blog, and comment! :)
