Shoe Wants vs. Shoe Needs

Shoeaholics Anonymous Disclosure

CLbyChineseLaun. Women's Filene. Item No. 69949,70156

We all know that need is to come before want, and in most cases for me it works that way. However these Chinese Laundry Filene mid-high boots would fall under the WANT. I found them  at Famous Footwear and had to try them on. I’ve thought about them several times trying to justify that  I NEED them. The buckle and criss-cross straps  really dress them up. I’m pretty sure the $10 off $50 coupon plus their current Famous 1/2 price sale just  may be the ticket to turning them into a NEED.   They are on sale  online as well at, $59.99.
