There comes a time when a fashionista has to make a very important decision. A decision that involves life or death, richer or poorer and full or hungry, all leading up to the thought of: “should I buy or shouldn’t I buy?”
Right now, I’m at a loss for words. I spent the last few days savoring over the cutest pair of denim booties from one of my favorite online retailers, only to realize that I was wasting my time. I never bought the boots! All those man hours spent searching the website, checking to see if the online retailer had my shoe size, zooming in on every picture and focusing on every angle, thinking about ways to wear the booties, looking at how I would incorporate them into my outfits and eyeballing every detail that the booties had to offer. Guys, here me out here though. It wasn’t completely a waste of time because I learned something very important in the end analysis. I learned that there’s a time and place for everything, even when it comes to purchasing items.
Right now, I’m in college. I have to think about a new semester of course fees, buying books, and other costly essentials a college student endures. Before I can think about buying super cute booties, I need to look at the bigger picture and put money into things that are going to help me succeed. I have my whole life to buy different fashion accessories. Focusing on the present and getting my degree is what’s at the top of my priorities. Don’t get me wrong, the booties would have totally complimented me and would help make any of my outfits that much cuter, but there will be others.
When it came to making my decision; “should I or shouldn’t I buy the booties?” I almost lost myself and was about to cave in. But then I thought, this is my moment to be strong. I am going to save my money for school, and if the booties are meant to be, maybe I will have some spare cash in the future to spend on and I will think of those babies. Until then, I’m going to focus on building my empire, starting with my education.
