Trouble with a captial T!

I need to make my budget last..
I have a monthly shoe budget of $100 smack-a-roos
Sometimes I might go over by like twenty, but I try to stay true to it. Unless I do more clothes shopping. Which spoiled me, is another budget.
(sidenote: I gave myself these limits)
But this month just barely started, I got a pair from shoedazzle already. So I have $60 left and I want these shoes..

Sooo how about these STEVE MADDEN'S ? OH HELP ME. I adore them, I can not find them on or anywhere else yet. But $129??? Way over my monthly budget.. Eeek. Plus that is on sale. The only downside to them is the 5 inch heel, I dont mind a good heel and I love being almost 5"10 flat foot..but sometimes...I just do not want to be towering over my man. Jeez though, look at the detail.

Okay and then what about these??

Two Lips, @$79 on sale they are not bad, if I do not want anything else all month. The wacky heel is really neat and I would be so excited to own them. But not sure if it is worth my whole shoe budget. You???

Oh and how AMAZINGLY SEXY AND UNQUIE are these, Colin Stuarts. They are on sale for $49. Wow, just meeeeeooow. Maybe can get these and another pair of Colin's. sigh. But I don't just want those.

These Colin Stuarts are waaay affordable at $29.99, So I might get one pair for sure this month. But what I really want?? The orange, black and brown ones.=) See my problem!

Lastly, are these quaint flower detailed Miss Sixty's
@ $119 though, not sure. I prefer quainty with the power of the internet. I mean you can get your quailty, comfy, last forever, brand that you love shoes in multiple pairs. Not like back in the day where you couldn't..but I too believe in sometimes just splurrrge. Plus I do not have any Miss Sixty's.

(all above pairs are at, I won't even get into what I found on and

So what would you do??
See I am thinking just get in trouble and go waaaaay over budget
Sit down and just change my budget??
okay or just stick to the budget and be freaking happy that I can spend $100 on shoes a month anyways??
I knew you would say the last one. I should do that, so for anyone who liked the links. Just go buy them yourselves. I can enjoy them through your posts.=(
Have a great weekend. For reals. Even if you just broke my heart for being senisble.

I am sooooooooooooooo gobbling up the cute flats that are everywhere this month. Even in the June issue of the US Cosmo they are going on about flats. Walmart and Old Navy have some adorable ones, and that pair of Steve Madden sandals( which would be my whole shoe budget for the month) are just begging to come home with me. Anyways, check out that page. Good deals!!

My last two grabs before the Month was over!

THESE Steve Madden, Suede Heels is what put me over my budget. But, well see, I am a bit of competitive gal and this other gal came in and the last day started trying to take these from me. While I had orginally said I would not pay over the um, 20 bucks I had left in my budget, well that did not happen, she started by just raising by a few dollars, then she put me into the 40's. Well lucky me, the time difference made the auction end in the early wee mornings over there. Soooo HAHAHAHA LOOOOOSER. I mean sorry for you loss, but I got them, I paid $47 bucks, but they retail at like $100 something.

Aren't they lovely? I can not wait to dance in them and have them swish.

So I got these nice Jessica Simpson flats, where is??? Shoe Metro via ebay. I paid with $16.79 not including shipping.

Hey y'all! I hope everyone had a good weekend. Especially those that really understand the meaning of the Memorial Day, the sub-culture that is this miltary life. Not saying others don't understand, but sometimes it is like that inside joke. You can laugh, but you don't full down in the belly laugh unless you are part of it. To me that is how miltary life is. You can try to understand the pain, craziness, tightness, up hill battle, all the while worth it struggle of your "normal" life, but unless you are inside it. You just don't get it. Which is fine.

But anyways, thank you to my hubby, who even though he is serving here overseas, and being on an international base does not get him most American Holiday's off. I thank him for his service, I thank those other dear soilders, that through him I have come to know and love. Thank you to those that have fallen in the past and those that will fall in the future. God Bless America.

Also, God Bless America and the food we can cook up.=) We had our bbq on Sunday at a friends house. Ooooh yummmy, let me tell you what too, I have eaten quite a bunch of different countries foods. BUT USA, is the top. Because we get all those different people, from all those diffferent countries coming to USA, then it gets flipped, added to and made better(only in my opinion) and WAHHHBAM. Yum-o. Plus I have fed Germans, Belgians, British, Italins and Romanians, they love the flavor we add to our dishes. Sigh. Anyways so we had our nice bbq in an overcast sky. The strong miltary, multi country service memebers, should say men aka boys, decided to use all the ice and water from the coolers and one by one soak each other. It was awesome.

Okay enough of that for now. Sorry I started to just ramble, if you even read this far. I made sure I put the new shoes I bought over the weekend at the top. I had to get my last May purchases in. I went over budget a lil bit, but, better than I did in April.=)

Here's to June, a new budget for shoes.....and the deals I can find. God Bless Shopping.
