I am not much for end of season sales. It's true -- back when I was building a wardrobe, I did pick up a few good things at J. Crew's end of season sales. I suppose when you need everything, you can always find something. But once your basic needs are met, not so much. A mid-season knit refresher for our LOOOONG winters in January, a new dress or skirt in August for the last month or two of heat -- those I can manage. But that's about it.

Except, apparently, when it comes to footwear. Because look what I brought home in the last couple of weeks!

In my defence:

1. Is a replacement for dressy shoes that did not stay on my feet. (One in-one-out.)

2. Is a HEWI -- a simple, classic cognac sandal.

3. Is also a replacement for a similar almond-toed flat that wore out.

4. Is a low wedge Franco Sarto of infinite comfort (waving to CocoLion) in a practical, bookending, and nude-for-me taupe. A back up and next year's replacement for my Sofft gladiators, which -- true to form -- I wore into the ground after two months of heavy, heavy wear.

Am I absolved?
