Ignorance is Bliss

November 10, 2012 § 1 Comment

You know how this Orwell dude said that “War is peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength”? Well they say it’s about the Cold War, but I am so not buying it.

I am pretty sure it’s in reference to shopping. Like me voluntarily choosing to ignore my credit card’s balance ( If you are my account manager at HSBC, please oh please disregard the latter statement ) and keep on buying shoes even though it means that I may  need to consider robbing a food bank. But think of it. Shoes obviously make you a more fabulous person, which is one heck of a strength. So Ignorance is Strength. And also a bliss. Makes perfect sense, right?

This time I scouted  two pairs of shoes at Myeong-dong in 15 minutes. SCORE emotionally, FAIL financially. The black ones are very much Acne Tassel Loafers (SS12) inspired, whereas the green ones are more what I call classy with a funky twist. Plus the shopping assistant kept on saying “soft cow, soft cow” and hissing as if he was an anaconda himself. How can a post-soviet girl say no to snake-skin.

    Look at it that way: Shoes are briliiant investment. I have a couple of £300 pairs – they still look fab and already have lasted quite a few years and will even more. And still buying, still investing.
