I've been VERY good about not spending money lately. Especially on clothes and things of that nature. Mostly because I'm broke, but also because I've got a few pounds to lose and don't want to buy anything until I'm back in shape. Getting there...
But last week I found myself wandering into the Famous Footwear in the shopping center across the street from us. I'm a sucker for advertising and the ginormous "BUY ONE GET ONE 1/2 OFF" worked on me.
I found myself in a field of glorious spring sandals and adorable, dainty little ballet flats, but alas, at a minimum of $40 bucks a pop I quietly passed them by and headed straight for the clearance section.
I'm a self-proclaimed Bargain Queen and I absolutely refuse to buy anything full price, but sometimes the sale racks and clearance sections leave much to be desired. Not in this case.
Cute, huh? And here is the box in which they came:
Why, yes, the original price was $79.99 and that is a giant sticker that says $20.
Does the original price say $89.99? Indeed it does. And does the clearance sticker say FIFTEEN DOLLARS? Correct!
I fell in love with both pairs (and their price tags) immediately, but unfortunately they are both a size 6. I normally wear a 5 to a 5 1/2 (yes, they're teeny), but I tried them on anyway because dress shoes sometimes run small. And much to my delight, they both fit perfectly!
Factor in the buy one get one half off promotion, and...I'll let you do the math on that one. Or I'll just tell you. Both shoes together came out to be a grand total of $27.50 + tax.
I am a genius.
I have 2 big birthday bashes to attend this weekend and hoping to wear one pair, maybe both. I'll let you know how it goes.
