Opinions? Also, Gloating.

So I succumbed to Cyber Monday. Endless.com had a deal where if you spend over $100, you get $30 off. So if I buy two pairs of shoes (like I usually do, assuming there is NO WAY both of them will actually fit) they are $54 each, instead of the normal-sale $72 or the full-price $90. And I have been hunting for a pair of dressy flats for pretty much all of 2010. Also, free shipping AND returns (crucial for how many shoes I return). Then I can return the pair that doesn't fit (there's always at least one) and still enjoy my discount, ha!

So these are the front-runners. I am pretty pleased with them. They are not 100% comfy but about 85% and that is good for me as Clarks usually take a little breaking in. They also are awesomely gunmetal gray with STUDS and a tiny (a.k.a. comfortable) wedge heel. How could I not love them?

This was very cheering after wasting most of my day at the Nevada Job Connect office. They seem to be catering to people who have no idea how to use a computer or write a resume. I feel like I should be able to find a job without the help of anyone there. Yeesh. It seems weird to be talking about this and shopping in the same post. But that's also why I can't buy shoes unless they're at least 40% off. It's weird how I can justify spending money sometimes even though I haven't had a job in a month. But I am working on it. And I have been hunting for shoes like these for at least a year now. Also, I am attempting not to purchase clothing until I have employment to justify it. I can get through holiday parties etc. on the wardrobe I have. But not the shoes.

Sorry to hear you're looking for a job. No worries about the shoes, though. Last I heard, job interviewers tend to frown on barefoot applicants.

Yeah I am not enjoying the job hunt. But thanks for the great shoe justification!

cute shoes. Really cute.

I hope you can find a job soon.... things are finally looking up here in Michigan (we have gone from 15 % unemployment to just over 10%) , so I figure the rest of the country has to be too...

Ugh, job hunting. =(

I love the shoes -- they're great!

Also, thank you for alerting me on the sale -- I was looking at endless the other day to try to find options for the party dress. ;)

Job hunting is icky at the best of times, so best of luck with that. But the shoes are adorable.

Thanks for the encouragement, ladies! The job market is way better in the Bay Area (or at least there are jobs that exist for me to apply to) so I figure I just need to keep hunting until I find the right one for me! And knock on some wood, quick!
