That would be my answer if you asked me, "What did you buy while you were out this weekend?"
A few years ago I was known as quite the snappy dresser. Then, without getting too personal, my financial life came crumbling down and I had to worry about stupid, ugly things like eating. Things are getting slightly better, so I decided to treat myself to a pair of much needed boots and got two pair instead.
Exhibit A. These cute Florsheim boots.
Exhibit B. These Frye-esque boots (I totally can't afford the real thing right now.)
That said, it's really hard to be a pinko socialist and root for the fall of capitalism and the redistibution of wealth when shopping for cute stuff is SO MUCH FUN. At least if the revolution comes I'll look adorable and have great boots for kicking in windows.
