I blame Sarah Jane Smith  

I'm not a shopper. I'm not a girl who likes buying things for herself. More to the point, I hate clothes shopping with a fiery passion and I really, really don't understand the whole 'shoe' thing.

That being said, I want these. A lot. And I think I want them in brown, which is weird since I'm so very much a 'black 'cause it's easy and I can't be bothered' type of person.

But... holidays are coming, so I really can't spend that money on myself. I could ask for them for my birthday/Christmas, but I know I really need practical things like socks and undies and sports bras* and a new stock pot, or better still an enameled cast iron dutch oven - excellent quality only, thanks (see? I'll go for quality in cook-ware; just not Kelly-wear).

fmeh. I suck at being a girl.

Advise me, flist. Tell me I'm right to balk at spending that kind of money (which is, admittedly, not unreasonable for a good pair of boots). Tell me I'm an idiot. Bad at Girl-ness? Good at Fan-Girlness? (since I was inspired by a Doctor Who character to even seek out these boots). Or just reply with something random or distracting or happy or interesting or adorable . That's good, too.

*what with the whole kickboxing-instructor thing

Jellyfish has them cheaper. :)

Click here to sign up if you don't have an account yet. I get credit for refferals.

Oh, and if you love them, but want them cheaper, and want them to go on the reverse auction,(aka "smack live shopping" you can send a PM to the show host, and you might get them cheaper still. Give me a shout if you want to try that, and I'll let you know who to send a note to..

I'm just saying. :) If you love those boots, buy them. Fashion things tend to go and they might not be back next season. The other things, bras, cookware...are more standard and you can catch them on sale, craigslist, on ebay, or whatever.
