I don't understand. Why not just liquidate some assets or draw a bit out of your trust fund? I, too, have had to make sacrifices. I settled for regular Lobbs the other day instead of my normal JLSJs.
In all seriousness, I was at the same stage as the OP not too long ago. If I did it all over again, I would have gladly sacrificed my AE Moras and say 2 other AEs to get that one shoe I really like (also Lowndes). I think it's better to take time to build up the wardrobe with pieces you really appreciate rather than many pieces you are lukewarm on.
I'm far from an AE hater, by the way. Love almost all the shoes on the 0 last.
