Wish List Wednesday!

Bear with me folks, yes I do know that today is technically Thursday but in my defense, the post was started and saved yesterday. I just forgot to publish it. I had a very busy Wednesday with my final research presentation, starting work on my research paper, actuarial studying and bowling. Somehow I stayed up for 18 hours. I don't know how, but I did.

Moving on!

In light of being done with my research presentation, the focus of Wish List Wednesday this week is SHOES! Wait what? What do shoes have to do with macroeconomic mathematical modeling? Apart from getting into a lengthy discussion about price levels and inflation with supply and demand, labor forces and what have you, the bottom line is this: after a big accomplishment, I like to indulge in a pair of awesome shoes. The end of last summer's research gave light to the birth of my red booties. That being said, here are some examples of awesomeness that get my female irrationalities really going.

I have always wanted to try wedges, but something always stops me when I see them in a store or online. I used to think that they were preposterous and ridiculous, so perhaps that inhibition is still inside me? Either way, if I get over that hurdle, these N.Y.L.A. wedges, available in different colors too, look amazing.

Just have to figure out how to walk in them first. If I can tackle Econometrics, I can tackle wedges right?

Next up, some of you who know me well, are aware I love boots. I live in boots from September till April or until it becomes too hot. I've even worn them during this past summer, however, I do not own a pair of black boots that I wear regularly.

They're over the knee boots. What's not to love?

Lastly, these purple heels are just too cute. Yes, a 5" heel with a 1" platform is a bit daunting, but I've got a thing for suede, as evidenced by my selections above.

Opinions on the proper shoe splurge anyone?


  1. I vote the last one! love the little fringy thingies.

  2. dude if you can walk in either of those you're my hero.
