Okay, before the rumors start flying that I am leaving my husband for a woman, let me explain. First of all…I’m not leaving my husband at all. Secondly, it’s not the actual person that I am in love with, but I’m in love with everything Tory Burch®. It started innocently enough (as all relationships do). I received my first pair of TB boots for Christmas just a few years ago. The. MOST.COMFORTABLE.BOOTS.EVER!!!! And not only were they comfortable, they were gorgeous!! I wore them every chance I got. That led to my next pair of boots, which led to shopping at the Tory Burch store in NYC, which led to more boots, flip flops, clothing, purses, wallets, jewelry and perfume.
Anything with the TB logo I want and in fact feel I need!! The emails come on a daily basis. And of course the sales that offer 70% on select items, to “friends and family” cause me many useless hours of scanning the website to see what Tory feels I need so badly that she would reduce it by 70%. JUST for her “friends and family”.
It has become very apparent that my job as a realtor is clearly to support my Tory Burch® addiction.
Recently, I received my most recent “order confirmation” from Tory…telling me that the shoes I had ordered were on back order. This was a confusing confirmation because I really didn’t recall ordering any shoes. My initial thought was had my obsession gotten so out of hand, that I was now ordering things in my sleep? Or a more absurd thought was perhaps, it was Tory’s way of sending me a “gift” because I am such a frequent buyer. Did I call the company to say “you know, I’m not sure what shoes are back ordered . There must be some mistake, because I didn’t order any shoes”? NOPE!! I just decided to wait and see what was delivered. And that’s when the most glorious, hip, comfortable pair of shoes arrived on my doorstep!! Do I remember ordering them? Vaguely. What I do remember is, when I first saw the shoes online I thought “wow, I must have those”. Somehow they found their way into my “cart” and into my closet. And I love them!!!
So after ordering shoes that I don’t remember ordering I decided to curb my Tory Burch obsession. I thought, I will delete the texts, emails and special invitations sent only to “friends and family”. I will be happy with what I have and when I receive the $50.00 gift card that she sends only to her “friends and family” I simply won’t use it. I won’t order anymore shoes, wallets, boots, etc. (especially in my sleep).
But then I heard she is designing athletic apparel!! So the obsession continues.
(Did I mention we set a place for Tory at our Thanksgiving dinner table? Just in case she happens to drop by).
