Life decisions

It came down to a choice between these and never buying coffee/food out for the rest of grad school, or these. No contest, so I never even tried on the former. Is a pointy toe really worth an extra $115? Do I even want a pointy toe, all things equal? But I must say, for all the fuss about knockoffs, the expensive stuff is never knocked off when you want it.

Things were so much easier as a student in Hyde Park.

I thought pointy toes weren't even in anymore - I just donated a slew of mine to HW.

Of course, that could just be my projecting because they always hurt my feet...

Um, which branch/what size?

As for what's in, it's unclear. Ray Bans and leggings-as-pants? Or is that just in/around Wash. Sq. Park?

I'm on the UWS - I actually still have a few pairs that I left for my cleaning lady today, but if she doesn't want them, I'll gladly give them to you...

I'm a size 8-8 1/2, depending on the shoe.

They're now 61 dolars. Surely you can stop drinking coffee for like a month or two. ;-)

The Banana Republic ones were indeed $61, and I bought them. I can still afford coffee. Espresso drinks are another story.

I'm a 7 1/2, but thanks! (Unless these are especially smal 8s...)
