The 50's Won't Have Me

When the Miu Miu's came out this spring, the ones that lightly resemble Mary Janes, I admired them for about two seconds and moved on because not only would the at least 4 1/2 inch heel cause my already 5'9 height to rival that of a basketball player's, but I just could not drop at least 350$ on footwear; like never. This explains why when I spotted very similar beauties at Forever 21 for hundreds of dollars less, I had to try them on; and once I tried them on and fell in love with their drama yet doll like sweetness, I was sold, or rather, the shoes were sold, to me.

Then last week, my boyfriend and I were heading into CVS for the necessary condiments to accompany our pizza (ranch, peppercinis, horrible I know) and there was a homeless man just outside the door surrounded by the most random items. Amongst various children's books on tape, several issues of National Geographic, and calenders, was a pink poodle backpack. "Ooh, look, look!" I coaxed my boyfriend as we continued into the store. "Three dollars!" the homeless man replied, noticing my overexcited interest. I immediately paused; three dollars is one of my favorite prices! My boyfriend sighed with a knowing grin. Exactly three dollars later we made off with childhood favorite, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, complete with both book and tape, my prized pink poodle, and an extra large poster of a bullfrog that the homeless/sales man decided so generously to throw in.
