highway robbery!

I have been trying to self- detox from online shopping lately. I am extremely poor and I have no room to put anything until I unpack those damn boxes anyway. But I cannot bring myself to get unsubscribe to the mailing lists. Which makes this detox even harder, considering I get emails everyday (Coach and Urban Outfitters are the two worst culprits)- and this morning I opened one.

Cute sandal? ehhh. . . but wait. I look at the price $158?! That has got to be an error. I know Urban Outfitters is known for its outlandish prices (which fyi: never buy from this store if it is not on sale, because everything goes on sale a week later) but come on. You've got to be kidding me! It's a strap of leather! Even I am appalled.

I'm at a complete loss. New Yorkers obviously put up with some recockulous amount of inflated prices, but this is just sad. I would like to meet the idiot who buys these shoes and then beat them senseless with them.

Well, it IS a pretty shoe.

Probably too flimsy to do much damage as a weapon. Maybe could be used to deliver a punishing kick, though.
