No sooner had I publicly decreed “…no more spending unless the G12 comes out before Kauai. No, seriously,” than the Nine West Runway Relief boots I’ve been eyeing went on sale. Cotdang!
I don’t bookmark a lot of blogs or posts in my daily wades through Web content and RSS feeds, but I did leave up Nitrolicious’ announcement about the Nine West, Modelinia, Nigel Barker, Facebook exclusive event. I didn’t read closely enough to understand or care why supermodels and Nigel Barker were supposed to make me excited, but I couldn’t stop zeroing in on the boot. I’m not a huge fan of the blue target logo on the right shoe, but I’ve had my own little almost-fling with breast cancer so the cause marketing overshadowed that graphic enough. (And actually, for a cause marketing campaign, I think they did a fairly subtle job of branding on a pretty sick utilitarian boot. Might consider distressing that logo a bit when they arrive. If you’ve got ideas, hit me up!)
So there you go, if I’m not a liar I’ve got no will power. On the plus side, I doubt the Canon G12 will come out before I fly off to Kauai, so…at least there’s that. But pretty much yeah, I’m rationalizing to an unhealthy degree.
Nerd Note: Really, thoroughly appreciated the super slick and well organized UI of the Fanshop app. The only way to purchase said boot was to “Like” Nine West’s Facebook Page, and I was ready for some really ugly awful buttons and tab-unfriendly form fields. Instead, the stream was super clean and even elegant. Good job, Fanshop! Now let’s see if these boots can fit my gargantuan calves…
P.S. I have tons and tons of stuff to catch up on. Turns out traveling a lot and commuting eighty miles five days a week really does make a body tired. If we’re friends on Facebook, you’ll be happy to know that I’ve divorced the Maykazine from automatically updating my Networked Blogs feed, so you can expect less self-publicizing annoyances on my wall.
