i like buying things, chapter 1

Today, after feeling rather aimless and off for a good while, I came to the utterly profound conclusion that I need a pair of Chuck Taylors. Yes, need. I’m not sure exactly how I’ve gotten by in life without a pair of these shoes, and yes, I do realize that I’m like the last person to come to the party on this one, but I can’t help but fawn. I mean, come on:

And if all else fails, these are 100% do-able:, and are more than likely what I’ll go with:

Hell. Yeah.

I’m sure there’s something to be said about my trend of channeling my aimless energy into retail therapy…buuut I think I’ll pass on examining that particular habit until after I’ve secured my Chucks.
