It’s sale season, okay?

I found myself on the Barney’s shoe floor (I know, stop, do not proceed, you DO NOT NEED last seasons IT shoe, you need a vacation) with three friends to cruise the sale racks. Suddenly my heart starts going faster, time slows down as I see a woman head towards what I think is a pair of Celine criss cross sandals in my size. I rush over, its a size too small. Phew. Probably too wide for my feet anyways!

After trying on several pairs of shoes that weren’t necessary (a high heel sandal with a silver chain ankle strap and a clunky plastic flat sandal) I found the pair, this pair. I’d actually been waiting for them to go on sale. And thanks to my patience, they did!

So a piece of sale season advice – Don’t get carried away by a designer shoe that is a half size too small and try to make it work. A classic shoe (even on sale!) is always worth it!
