We've got a delay on the Mesmer Project, so I'm posting this week's New Thing today. Sorry for the confusion.
As it turns out, today's New Thing relates to the Thought for the Week and I didn't even realize it. You see, despite blogging about a few of my favorite things, I don't think of myself as someone who's into possessions. I'm much more apt to collect experiences. But I was feelling low recently, so I decided to try some Retail Therapy.
As remarkable as it sounds, I can honestly say I've never made a conscious decision to go shopping to make myself feel better. The very idea always seemed so unevolved. But I was early for an appointment and passing Buffalo Exchange and I decided to find out what it was like.
And it totally worked. I know I'm supposed to say that shopping can't fill that empty void you feel inside. But a used pair of high tops made me giddy all day. And for days afterward. In fact, I've come to realize that I'm someone who loves shoes.
Lucky for me, I love a bargain even more. So I think I might be safe.
'Cuz, seriously, how great are these?
