@amyfrances When this happens, you let me know. I will move to where you open your business.
@LocalGirl Forgot to add that so far my booties from the Clarks Artisan collection are also wearing well and are super stylish!
@aproprose I love my Sudini boots, in the mid $100 range. I've had them for 3+ years and wear them all the time, summer, winter...The Bay Area weather lets that happen. I polish them myself, but I've had the soles replaced once and a zipper tab added once. I try to take care of them and do fixes early-should get several more years out of them. Purchased through Nordstroms. They also are great for those who have wide or narrow calves because the back is adjustable without wrinkling, as it is three pieces.
I need to share our system. Two coworkers and I share the grocery tab on a weeks worth of Trader Joe's fare. One week I pay, next week coworker A pays, third week coworker B pays. We get hot and tasty meals that always have a veggie or fruit. Some are healthier than others, and two days a week we make a salad based lunch. 4th week of the month, it's every woman/man for her/himself. It works out really well. We have a great variety of food, it reduces the stress of "What are we going to eat today?" and makes our coworkers jealous. Plus our bills are usually about $45-50 bucks a week. So you get three weeks of lunches for $45-$50 each. Not bad, that's like $3.33 a meal, right?
