Shopping to de-stress has never been my forte. I don’t shop to de-stress. I write to de-stress, but as of late, I feel as if I’m so out of place, and logic and practicality does not seems to be a part of me anymore. I feel as if I couldn’t actually get a grip on my life, and I desperately need to do something to feel good again.
My husband commented yesterday that I’ve been buying a lot of shoes late, and I’ve yet to wear any of them. A sentiment that I noted. In January alone I’ve bought 5 pairs of shoes. That’s a world record for me. I’ve been acting out of character, of course. I never had more than one pair of shoes to wear at a time til Jan 2011. Usually, I’ll just wait for the pair that I’ve been wearing all worn out before buying a new one.
But… it seems that lately, I can’t help myself. I bought 2 pairs of high heels that I probably will not wear (I NEVER WEAR HIGH HEELS, PERIOD), 1 pair of Mary Jane’s, 1 pair of sandal and the latest addition to the family, a pair of sneakers.
Total? 5 pairs of shoes. Total damage to the pocket?Â RM70.00 for all 5 pairs. Any shopaholic would say that this is quite a steal, but deep down, I feel rather guilty for indulging my impulse buying.
But then again…I don’t quite give a damn right now. After all, it’s been more than 8 years since I last indulge on such pleasure. It’s about time I do this… I guess… at least… it’s not as if I’ve been DRINKING some shits that will intoxicate me or take drugs or do whatever disgustingly illegal things and make a total bimbo of myself in the process.
I guess, that alone justify my craze for shoes… at least… shoes are something re-usable, and if I decided to get rid of those, I could always give them to my mum or my sis as they shared the same shoe size as me. Substance with alcoholic contents on the other hand… is just a one-shot deal. Drinking to de-stress…I think… its just bloody stupid to me.
Cleffairy: When things get out of control…I will attempt to take control of things that I actually can. I’ll chop off a few inch off my hair, buy some black undies, stuff my face with food…and it just so happen that my current craze is buying shoes.
