Due to a larger than expected bonus, I took the unrequited shoe yearning as a sign rather than a test, and bought the slightly trashy, over-the-top, waaayyy out of my budget shoes I'd been obsessing about.Buyer's remorse? Not even a little bit. Have you ever been unsure about a purchase? Did you regret it or did it work out for the best?
