Anyway, when I was buying them at David Jones there were 2 ladies behind me in the line commenting that they could've bought 5 pairs of shoes for the price of my Louboutins (my first thought was that I don't need 5 more pairs - I already have about 150!). I'd heard them talking about their children before that, so obviously they were in a different stage of their lives to me. I wasn't sure whether I should've felt embarrassed, offended or guilty about buying the shoes after that, but I decided that I wasn't going to feel any of those things.
I can afford shoes like this at the moment. I may not be able to at any other stage of my life. But as I have no mortgage and no children, and a professional job, I'm going to enjoy the opportunity to buy beautiful, expensive things while it lasts, and no one is going to make me feel bad about it!
