my dear christine tweeted about these shoe twins the other day
and i thought they made the perfect illustration.
hey, i have a fun question for you today…
you may have seen the convo we had about “quality over quantity”
and i received so many great responses (supporting both sides),
that i thought it might be interesting to open up the conversation here, as well.
so here it is:
if you had a chunk of change to spend, and you KNEW it was going to go towards shoes,
would you rather buy one fabulous, pricier pair
OR a few less expensive, pretty-cool pairs.
i was doing a little birthday-shopping online (i turned 27 yesterday… eek!)
and as we’re in the process of downsizing,
perhaps also the fact that i’m another year older,
i’m really starting to evaluate my purchases more carefully than i ever did before.
i’ve ALWAYS been a bargain-hunter, and LOVE finding great deals
(“hello, my name is jessie, and i’m a serial-thrifter”)
but lately, i’m more on the fence when it comes to designer vs. fast fashion.
because shoes are my all-time favorite fashion purchase,
and since i happened to snatch up a few goodies for myself yesterday,
i was very curious to know what my fellow shoppers and stylistas thought about the topic.
from what i saw yesterday, the opinions were overwhelmingly for the pricier piece!
i’d love to hear what you think in the comments,
and i’ll be sure to share my birthday goodies with you soon!
