I can't afford anything I like anymore! But let me start from the beginning...
Yesterday I was flipping through the pages of a Brooks Brothers' catalog and these slippers caught my eye:
I don't own any slipper-like shoes like these ones, and I thought to myself "Why not?" They would look nice with a pair of slim pants and I could wear them to work with a pant suit or with a skirt.
While I was thinking this, I also started to play numbers in my head (which I do often when it comes to shopping), and before I went to look at the bottom of the page of the catalog to see how much they cost, this went through my mind: "Maybe $150, hopefully less, but would I consider spending $200 for them? Well, they are Brooks Brothers which means they are not going to be a bargain... yes, I can go up to $200 and maybe I could find a coupon..."
And then I looked at the price. $500. What!?!? FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS??? WHAT ARE THEY CRAZY!?!?
And then I calmed down.
But seriously, there is no way I'm spending $500 on slippers. If anything, I'll add some extra money and buy some Louboutins!
