an unnatural aversion.

I knew I had this problem, however it didnt come as a realization to me until I said it out loud in a conversation with a coworker.

I cant buy black shoes.

Yeah. Totally weird right?
How hard can it be?
find a pair, try them on, buy them. Done.


the other night, Geoff and I went into Portland to meet my dad for dinner and check out the Nordstrom anniversary sale (go! go now! its so wonderful!)

I had decided 24 hours prior to look for and purchase black wedge booties.
My intentions were to have something to wear in the fall without having to make the commitment to buying a full pair of black boots because clearly that would be wasteful (what is wrong with me?)

This problem has gotten worse with time. I used to buy black shoes! For instance I have a pair of black boots that I recieved my sophomore year of high school. And I did buy two pairs of black heels my sophomore year of college, but anyway, I digress.

I decided to take inventory of the problem.
Shield your eyes people because its nude/congac city and im the mayor.

(p.s. my walls are NOT blue, they are grey...but i cant that expect much from my iPhone)




see those ones on the left?

this is me trying to buy a black wedge bootie.
props for them being gray?

I just cant resist me some Frye boots, guys.

Maybe something in a two-tone might ease the fear of black. Say, maybe a gray/black combo, or a white/black oxford (cute) or cordoba/black. But be careful, you know what they say about once you've had black. Anyway black is such a mature color, goes well with the professional adult establishment, and you wouldn't want to join us too soon! Enjoy the color of life, you'll get to black soon enough!
