For the love of a pump.

I have fallen off the weight-loss wagon and have found myself a little depressed about my lack of discipline. I have also notice my lack of interest in clothing lately, which was at an all time high when the numbers on the scale were still going down, and my increasing interest in shoes and accessories. Which got me thinking, do the numbers on the scale have an inverse relationship to the level of interest in things that have a direct relationship to my weight?

I have always been an AVID purse, shoe, and accessory "collector". I love the idea that you can completely change the look of an outfit simply by changing the accessories. But when I was losing weight, I had a newfound interest in the latest trends of skinny jeans, shirt-dresses, leggings, and maxi dresses. I had an appreciation for the fact that you can completely change the look of an outfit simply by changing the outfit... This brings to mind one of my favorite fashion, and family movies 'In Her Shoes', it features one of my favorite people (and by people I mean people I have/will never met/meet) Toni Collette. In a scene where her sister (Cameron Diaz), tells her that she shouldn't buy such cute shoes because they should be living a life of scandal, and she should let people who will get something out of them buy them, Toni retorts,

"When I feel bad I like to treat myself. Clothes never look any good... food just makes me fatter... shoes always fit."

And so I think that is exactly where my love stems from... shoes ALWAYS fit.
