I looked at the New Look website today. It was my first visit there in a while, and I swear, in my absence, they’ve obviously sat down, put their thinking caps on, and thought, “OK, how can we get Shoeperwoman to give us all her money?”
Well, here’s how they’re going to do it:
I have these shoes in black patent. And in pink patent. So it’s safe to say that I love this style. Now here they are in red (And also in navy and pink velvet, if you’re interested). Wouldn’t a red pair be awesome? Wouldn’t they come in handy, especially for all of those winter-time Ruby Shoesdays I’m soon to be faced with? Yeah, that’s what I thought, too.
But then I saw these:
Oh, NO. Still two weeks until pay day, and I’m expected to resist this? What kind of freak do you think I am, New Look? Huh?
(There’s a black version, too. New Look, I HATE you.)
Yeah, yeah, very clever.
Wouldn’t kick these out of the shoe closet either.
All of these were on the “New In” page. I didn’t look at the rest of the site. I didn’t dare. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear they were doing this just because they know I’m on a serious budget this month.
Oh, and Miss Selfridge are in on the “tempt Shoeperwoman” act, too. I mean, I resisted the red and grey versions of those oversized bow platforms, only for them to do this to me:
Looks like I picked the wrong month to go on a budget…
