Suzanne: Omigosh, you have to see these shoes:
Common Sense: Wow. Those are some really adorable shoes.
Suzanne: I know, right? Zebra stripes plus red accents?
CS: Yep, they are sure cute, but wow, look at those heels. How are high they?
S: Well, 4 inches, I think, but the sole is actually a 1/2″ platform.
CS: And they fit?
S: Believe it or not, yeah! They had my size and they felt really good!
CS: Wow, that’s amazing, because most of the cutest shoes don’t even come in a size 11. They “felt good,” hmmm? They are actually comfortable? Really?
S: Well, I wouldn’t want to stand in them for hours or walk a mile in them, but yeah, comfortable enough for heels.
S: Well, anyway, they are for dressing up, so it doesn’t matter if I can’t work in them all day long.
CS: Dressing up, you say? And where would you be going when you dressed up and wore these shoes?
S: Well, um. You know. When I dress up.
CS: And you dress up how often?
CS: Yeah. Exactly.
S: I’d wear them to church every time I play!
CS: Yeah. Cause Zebra print shoes totally scream CHURCH. And don’t even try to suggest that you wear them when you dress up to play for funerals, cause I know that’s where you think you are going next.
S: But look at how CUTE they are!!!! And get this! I found them online for $15 cheaper than they were at the mall! They were $55 at the mall, but only $40 online!! With free shipping! I’d totally be saving money by getting them online.
CS: Spending $40 on shoes you don’t need is NOT saving money.
S: But look at how CUTE they are!!!
CS: It doesn’t matter how CUTE they are if they are totally impractical.
S: But it’s almost my birthday!!!
CS: Still doesn’t matter. You can’t have them.
S: But I NEED them. I fell asleep DREAMING about them.
CS: You NEED them? What you NEED is HELP.
I wear totally wild shoes like that to church and it’s a pretty darn conservative church – no pants on women, ties on men, you get the drift. I get tons of compliments on my wild red plaid Betsey Johnson’s or on my hot pink and silver print ones too. Men and women – tons of compliments. But, if you order those great shoes You Must Actually Wear Them To Church! No fair buying and then shoving in closet.
Ooo! Those are totally awsome! We tall girls aren’t supposed to where heels, ya know….that’s why we do!

Okay, they are adorable. But it’s not the $40 that you need to worry about. It’s the $200 dress
that you need to go with this beauties. Ack!
Heck, you can’t take it with you, and you need to wear SOMETHING on your feet. I vote that you go for it! Buy the shoes! Um… you were asking for opinions, right?
OOOOOOOOH! I love that you got those shoes! Sisters are just GREAT!
