Wild Shopping Spree!!
I recently drove over to the old downtown section of Scottsdale, Arizona to see friends visiting the area on their vacation. Good times! I have no idea what “normal” is for foot traffic here, but the amount of people wandering about seemed pretty good for a weekday. The span of shop styles here range from cheap tourist trash, to trendy boutiques, to pricey artworks. it seemed as though fully a quarter of the stores handled jewelry.
Apart from a bottle of soda pop, my walk on the wild side netted me two belts from Mexican Imports. I was looking at the lighter colored one when Matt asked if the dark brown one wouldn’t be more useful overall. Hmmm. Yup, but I also liked the lighter one. See, I already have a couple of very good “dress” belts – that I almost never wear. I’m a bit tough on belts, see, hanging stuff with clips on them. So for day-to-day use, I wear (and wear out) the cheapest belt I can find that’s still halfway presentable. I needed just one daily belt, as my current one is getting a bit raggedy. I liked both of these before me, each having both stitching and embossing. Rather than do my usual careful analysis of highest appropriateness to my “wardrobe” colors, I noted the $12 price and made the executive decision to buy both and get it over with. Done.
That’s my version of being totally out of control. After a superb supper in wonderful company, I headed back to Wickenburg. What a day!
