A Sad Loss and the Perfect Pair of Shoes

Just a quick post...I had a bigger blog post planned, but my laptop went on the fritz and I think it may be done for. So here I am on our roommate's desktop, mourning the loss of my little Mac. We've been through a lot together over the past six years and its been a good run, but I think it might be time to say goodbye. Strangely enough, I am actually more than a little sad...how strange it is to become so attached to an inanimate object.

On a happier note, I think I may have found the perfect pair of shoes at Anthropologie's website! (although they are WAY out of my price range:) Its always fun to dream...

  1. Those are precious shoes.
    I get attached to inanimate objects too. It's frustrating and the reason I have a too crowded house (says the husband, anyway).
    Best wishes for a speedy new laptop.

  2. Oh dear, how sad! I understand. My computer nearly died a couple of months ago and I found myself strangely sad about the possibility of having to part with it. (Fortunately, it was revived!) Good luck finding a new one!

    Those shoes are darling! It is a shame they are so expensive. Boo. :(

  5. The shoes are gorgeous! I have seen similar ones in Dorothy Perkins but they are not quite the same as the pictured shoes :)

    Sorry to hear about your laptop! I get attached to things like that to. I hope you get a new laptop soon! :)

    Thank you so much for your lovely comment and in reply to your question, I am going to Dorset. So I'm hoping the weather is going to be nice! :)

  8. sorry to hear about your laptop. i'd say 6 years is a pretty good run, but it's hard to give something like that up. i hope you get a fabulous new one.

    those shoes are beautiful. i hope you get those too!

    xo,
    the little violet dress

  10. Sorry to hear about your Mac, I know the feeling though. I had the same iPod for about the same amount of time until it died out on me last year. Really sucked, it'd been with me for such a long time... :(

    Regarding the shoes though, you may want to try the brick-and-mortar store (if you haven't already). When I was in San Francisco I went in for a look at the Anthropologie on Market street and there were some really cute shoes at 60% off, later when I went online they had the same ones at regular price (no sale at all).

  20. Gorgeous shoes! I so wished that you were going to say you had bought them. Ah, well, I find that intense longing for an item is strangely more pleasurable when it's never satisfied.

    On a side not

  21. Whoops, I definitely didn't finish that before publishing. I was going to say:

    On a side note, my word verification was "shoely." Seems appropriate, non?
