hiding new purchases

Here are some new shoes that I've had to hide underneath my vintage
dresses, in the corner of the room you cannot see from the doorway.
There's room on the shoe rack, but I've saved sooo... much money
on shoes in the post Christmas/end-of-season sales, and my other
half still doesn't this concept.

I've been wearing the new shoes home, with the shoes I originally
left the house in, stuffed in my handbag - clever, huh? I usually
just hide the new clothes/shoes in my car until I'm home
alone, then I get the chance to unload and hide all the bags, 
wrapping and receipts at the bottom of the bin.

Anyone else do this, or is it just me?



  1. I come in with my purchases and do a fashion parade for Hubby and get him to guess prices on things and then I take about $20 off the price to make it sound better. We all have our own little tricks dont we.

  2. i'm a sneaker-in-er-er.

    Love your 'wear the new purchases home' idea!

  3. so far my husband accepts my addiction :-) the ballet shoes are gorgeous by the way!

  4. I totally used to do this when i was with my ex!

  5. I used to be with my ex, but not anymore. I buy a LOT less than I did then, though!

  6. Oh, I love that ballet shoe-toe style... are they heels? I don't know if I could pull it off. Are you wearing them to work? Must wear them with tulle underskirt.

    Those wedges look awesome too. Why haven't I seen them yet? Or have I?
