“Rach, what are you doing”?
“I just got home..” I reply to the phone.
I can’t sleep, it is the middle of the night and what I find myself doing is spending the last hour “window” shopping on the Internet.
I am such a Masochist.
“I am on NeimanMarcus.com. Kill me now.”
After a few clicks I am brought to a pair of Manolo Slouch boots. Priced at 1050 dollars. Hmmmmm rent or Manolos? Tough decision.
The new pair of Louboutins…700 dollars for a shoe crafted so beautifully I might cry.
“Why do you do this to yourself Rachel”?
“Its fun that’s why”!!
And it really is. Will I ever buy a 1000-dollar pair of boots? Not likely. (ok that’s a lie I tell just so you all don’t think I am crazy but when I am a millionaire you bet your ass I am going to get those.)
My grandmother told me that when they were really poor, they used to go down to the rich neighborhoods and find open houses they could walk around. This was how they spent their Sunday afternoons.
Sometimes I head over to www.40bond.com to oogle my dream home.
I know we all do this. Salivate over things we can’t afford just for fun.
Is it masochism? Are we just torturing ourselves?
There is that Chloe handbag.
Those Manolos are the most perfect boots I have ever seen.
Yes….it is Masochism.
My name is Rachel Heather and I let fashion torture me.
