At least three times in the last year, I have been invited to go shopping for clothes. And/or shoes. By the same person, too.
I don't get it.
I own clothes. I hardly ever show up places naked - which, when you think about it, is hardly an option in Canada this time of year anyway.
I own shoes too. At least, I own one pair of fleece-lined hiking boots for winter, one pair of sandals and two pairs of sneakers.
Admittedly, some - well, most - of the clothing is not new. Or, for that matter, particularly fashionable. A good deal of it came from thrift shops. But it is clean, intact and covers me decently and comfortably.
As for the shoe fetish - well, let's just say I am not prepared to pay $150 for three straps and a 3 inch heel. Or spring for whatever a podiatrist's fees are these days.
No, I am not a miser. I spend money on books, music, craft supplies (Green Dog Creations - proceeds to the SPCA), new windows for the house and a heating system for the cabin.
I just hate wasteful spending.

LOL! I hear that!:) Though I do admit I lust after purses, I can never find what I Really want.. but if I do find something I like I use it til it falls apart, or looks like it might..:)
I'm a fan of Terry Pratchett DiscWorld novels & Tony Hillerman's Joe Leaphorn/Jim Chee novels.. and pretty much any Sci-Fi!
