My first designer purchase*

So over the weekend, I BECAME A GIRL! A girl like CARRIE BRADSHAW! And that isn't too good. But I bought designer shoes. So here's the story!

Imagine my surprise when I saw that there was a Betsey Johnson store in Kansas City. I LOVE Betsey Johnson. I don't know where I originally heard of her, although I did write a report on her for my junior year entrepreneurship class. We walked into the store today, and Pete said, "Whoa. This is colorful." It has pink walls, pink floor, pink EVERYTHING with big fluffy colorful dresses that are way expensive and then there was a shoe table by the dressing room and I saw THESE:

It happened so fast, the rockabilly-looking woman that worked there asked my size and BAM they were in front of me. Tried them on. Loved them. Thought about my current money situation (not bad, not bad at all) and realized I would be making DOUBLE the shoes in the next week. Which was fine. So I bought them. And carried about my pink Betsey Johnson bag all day like this:

Other things I would have bought from Betsey Johnson, if I had available funds to do so:

pretty floral babydoll dress here

gingham corset dress here

gerber daisies dress here

sweet treats tote here


*Technically, I was at a designer outlet mall in Orlando a couple years back and I bought four things from BCBG Max Azria. But they were all WAY cheaper. Which is awesome and totally fine. Me and Emme coerced dad into buying an Armani suit! I think he sold it on eBay, though...
