A Bit of Self-Restraint

Original painting of a woman in a beautifully appointed shoe shop.

Story: Now, I have been trying to show a bit of self-restraint when it comes to shoes. And boots. And even sandals, for that matter. But I do have a weakness for exquisite footwear, and that makes it ever so difficult for me to control myself in a place like this. But I think I will allow myself to touch these lovely pink boots. I mean, if the leather isn't supple, I won't even be tempted to try them on. After all, those gorgeous black ones with the skyscraper heels that are languishing in their box at the back of my wardrobe taught me a lesson. I only wore them to walk to the local shops, and my feet ended up sore! I can't bear to get rid of them, so I've decided that they'll be my go-to when I'm taking a taxi. To the movies. Or somewhere else where all a girl has to do is sit down. Anyway, even if these ones are as soft as butter, they might not be in stock in my size. Never again will I make the mistake of buying a size too large! What was I thinking when I fell in love with those kitten-heeled Mary Janes that I never wear? Well, actually, I know exactly what I was thinking. I somehow managed to convince myself that my feet might grow! Well, that didn't happen, so I ended up stuffing the fronts of those shoes with tissues. Not. Very. Comfortable. So if these stunners aren't absolutely perfect, there's no chance at all that I'll buy them. But if they are, I really don't think I should be held responsible for my actions...
