I'm so excited right now! You'd think something earth-shattering had happened...and depending on how you want to look at it, it just may have.

I was reading a fashion blog I visit regularly and discovered that The OutNet will be offering over 50 styles of Christian Louboutins for 50% off. Meaning, the $700 pair of shoes I wanted to splurge on when I met my weight loss goal may just be around $350.

My conundrum is this: If they do indeed have my size in the style I wanted, should I go ahead and buy them on the cheap and put them away for "Goal Day"? B. says no. He says I'll get them, see how awesome they are, and say screw it. I think I can handle it. Couldn't I order them, try them on to make sure they fit (of course), and then put them away until such time as I've reached the target? I'd like to think that the make-sure-they-fit try-on would be super motivational? As in, do you really want to eat an ice cream sundea right now, or do you want to put yourself that much closer to those beautiful beautiful shoes??

I'm thinking....In the meantime, I've gotta figure out what size I wear!


  1. I say do it-- that's a $350 savings! But maybe try them on, take a photo, then entrust them to B to hide so you CAN'T get them until you meet your goal. At least that is what I would do. Because I have no will power (clearly).

    but do not, i repeat DO NOT entrust one of your girl friends to hold them for you. Unless you want them back all worn out :)

  2. I'm sad to say they did not have the pair I wanted. And, since this is a once in a lifetime splurge, I'm holding out for the exact style I want. Still it was a sad day!
