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.
