on my salary?

ok, so you know how i get obsessed with things? and then i wear them all the time? yeah... these flats are my current victim. i wore them with this outfit the other day and you couldn't really see them, so here they are in all their glory:
[my feet are ashy. i need lotion, stat!]
soo... story time. i wore these shoes to work once (it was an office day) and my boss did a double take before looking closely and asking, "are these...cobra?" it took everything in my power not to laugh out loud. i finally said, "unfortunately, these are just plastic. i got them for ten dollars..." it was funny. and slightly uncomfortable [although i'm not sure for who]. later my coworker and i were talking about it and he goes, "really? he thinks you could afford cobra shoes with our salary?" hahaha. true that, yo.

coming at a close second for currently-obsessed-with item are these jeans. they are new, from forever 21 [they're having a denim sale right now]. i needed some skinny jeans, since my absolute favorite pair has a humongous hole in the crotch-ular area. not a good look. RIP, lovely jeans [seen here, here, here, here, and here. i obviously used to wear them a lot]. so anyways, i was really scared to try on forever 21 jeans because i did once a long time ago and my thigh wouldn't fit in the pant leg. an experience like that will scar you, trust me.
in the name of skinny jeans, i tried these bad boys on. and they actually fit. these ones are pretty short (hello, highwaters!) but thats a look i can rock with flats or cover up with boots. i'm kind of tall, so it's hard to find pants that are long enough sometimes... thats beside the point though, because i love them. now excuse me while i adore my $10 cobra shoes...

I hear ya about about the pants thing! I think most designers must think all women are 5'6" and under. It's annoying!

I totally hear you on the obsessing about things. You have cobra shoes, I have giraffe print shoes that I will try and match with everything.

Yay for animal prints. Fake animal prints :)

maybe your boss thinks you buy cobra shoes and then you and josh starve to death and live in an apartment without furniture, cable or a/c.
