    Shooz

    Those are the sneakers from earlier today. They are not what I want to talk about here.

    We have this independently owned shoe store here in town which is run by a very old man who was born and raised here. he's so cute, and nice, and loves his shoes and his customers, absolutely love when I can shop there. Sometimes he talks too much, but it's okay, b/c he's nice, and he hasn't gone out of business.

    I went there yesterday, b/c I've really been struggling to find good brown shoes. I have a pair of black heels that are very basic, very versatile and relatively comfortable. I got those at this old man's store, and I wanted to see if he had them in brown. Because I was feeling desperate. he had them in brown, with a slightly lower heel, which I liked. I bought them.

    Then I went to the Gap, looking for blouses - they had NOTHING. T-shirts and tank tops, but NOTHING that even resembled professional wear. Then I wandered into this boutique that happens to carry shoes. I saw a beautiful shoe. And then I saw another beautiful shoe. I had them both in brown, tried them both on, and really liked them both. They were soooo comfortable. But I was choosing b/t 2 brown shoes, and I chose the first.

    Now I want to go back, and get the second in black. I can wear them with jeans, once school starts. Right?

    I do, however, now have 2 pairs of brown shoes. Actually, I have 4. The first pair was bought in a flurry right before my first day of work on which I wanted to wear a brown suit, and ended up chewing my feet up and being grossly uncomfortable. The second pair I bought to replace the first, but they're an odd shade of brown ... and they squeak. Which we know I hate.

    I threw away the chewy shoes, and will probably keep the squeakies as a back up. But what to do with the 2 new pairs? I'm pretty sure I want to keep the dansko's, but what about the Aerosoles? They are slightly more professional. Should I keep them? Should I return them?
