I hate shopping, too. I spend mine on relaxation, be it a wonderful massage, a day hiking, a day in the museum, working smarter so I have more time to run/exercise/be outside. However, I am a sucker for great boots.
ginnyb write: People who spend 800 bucks on a pair of shoes just because of a brand or some big shot is wearing them needs counseling. NEED the newest handbag? Why, you have 20! They are obviously buying away loneliness, self-confidence issues or boredom. I can understand treating yourself to the best of the best (food, wine, spa treatments) if you can but letting a brand rip you off because you are insecure is just sad. Go pick up those cute 100$ pair of kitten heals in the same style, sure Jessica Simpson doesn't own the exact pair, but you'll only wear them once anyways! Donate the other 700$ to Charity so some child actually CAN wear shoes.
DSW - - shoe warehouse - - is the best! up to 80% off name brands.
And expensive/brand-name doesn't mean quality. I checked out Vuitton's shoes and they're just crap. Ditto Jimmy Choo; they're adorable from a distance, but they're not well-made. Maybe they were well-made once upon a time, but not anymore!
Bottom line: Bills and charity come first, and play money second! But when it comes to charity, pick a cause near-and-dear to your heart and stick with it. Otherwise you'll go broke trying to fix the world.
The only reason I started this thread was to encourage the nasty catfight threads to sink into oblivion. Note to catfighters: ever watch the women on the Jerry Springer show? Y a think decent men would EVER date them?
So here's my question for you ladies out there who can demonstrate a lifetime of good jobs and good decisions, healthy relationships and dignified pursuits: When you have disposable income, what do you blow it on? For me, it's stilletto shoes and boots, I have over 100 pair! Other contenders: beauty treaments, night school, dance lessons.

My whole point is in your opening line. If a man had 100 shoes, it would be because he was to bone-headed to throw away the 98 he didn't wear.
If you really think that I think I speak for all men, then obviously you have no sense of irony or satire. In the words of Foghorn Leghorn "That's a joke, son". This is all a freakin' joke.
As for "impressing women", I leave that to 16 year old boys.
If I didn't love women and all of their shoe collecting ways, I wouldn't be on this site.

You could still caddy for me if you can tell me which club is gonna get me on the green in two!
Teri, speaking of underwear. I've been thinking about this for a few days. You need to do a followup thread to your underwear thread. It seemed to me there were a lot of "commando's" posting and it made me curious. Just how commando are they? Trimmed? Bald? Untrimmed?
I can tell you which clubs to use but you have to swing them. I always know which clubs to use myself the ball just doesn't seem to go as straight or as far as it should.

Sorry, I don't kiss-and-tell! But if someday I am ever so CRAZY to accept a marriage proposal from any man, I'll post an announcement . . . LOL . . .
