The courier dropped these off this morning.
After I first saw them a couple of months ago, I've been trying my darnest to not think of them since I'm still not gainfully-employed. But it's very hard with all of them plastic cuties. Those who know me know that I cannot resist adding new models to my collection the moment they hit the shops.
Predictably, I caved and bought these caramel three-strappers. The excuse, not that I needed one, was birthday-gift-to-self. I blame the collector within me and also the uncle who first sowed the seed by giving me one of his old stamp albums when I was five.
I said I wasn't going to do another yearbook-type group photo of my shoes after the last one because it made me feel guilty for being such a consumaterialist. Well, I ought to feel bad! To punish myself for my naughty purchase, a self-induced guilt trip was in order - meet the girls...
...in chronological order, from the first pair that started this whole collecting frenzy at top left...

Alright, disgust for myself has seriously set in. I hope it stays for a while. At least until I track down a pair of Zaha Hadid locally.
