A little while ago, I gave in and purchased a pair of TOMS for myself. I have wanted them for so long, but couldn't bear to spend the money.
But then I thought, "aww, heck with it" and bought them. And I couldn't be happier with them.
If you aren't familiar with TOMS or the TOMS story, you should checkout their website here. Basically, it's a One for One system. For every pair of shoes you buy, they donate a pair to a child in need. It's a great feeling to know that you get something with your purchase, and you help someone as well.
I may or may not have said to my boyfriend "These aren't for ME, they're for the children!"
