For the last month or so I’ve been feeling particularly smug because I’ve managed to prevent myself from falling into any of the major pre-sale madness going on – only to find myself purchasing two pairs of shoes in the same amount of days last week. Oy! But these were both pairs that qualified under my “emergency sale purchase” plan and yes, I actually do have an ING Savings account labeled that. Anyway, here they are!
I’d been watching the Stuart Weitzmans for a while and thought they’d be a great casual, nude sandal. I love my YSL Tributes but sometimes they are too high for certain occasions and I also have a fear of walking down steep hills in them.
The Weitzmans have a subtle platform and are incredibly comfortable. They are partially cork (but all leather lined) which makes them quite light. I do believe that Stuart Weitzman is sometimes underrated though his new line may change that.
My next pair are not nearly as practical but cute enough that I couldn’t resist. I love gingham! Plus these shoes were actually really comfortable for the height, I usually have bad luck with pointier heels. Please excuse my veiny feet, standing for a while in front of the self timer trying to take a photo in various flamingo-like stances can do that to you!
One more shot of shoe details just because I love them…
Here are the links again to the shoes above – the Stuart Weitzmans have random sizes in stock and the Miu Mius are largely sold out, but sizes do sporadically appear.
Over the years I’ve tried to become better and better at sale shopping and now try to only buy items that I’d be willing to pay full price for – but isn’t that kind of a weird logic? Why didn’t I just buy them full price then? Anyway, while I’m mulling that over…I’d love to hear – have any of you indulged in any spring sale scores? If not, I to hear so too, I need some examples of good behavior!
