It was late night on a weekday.
I was laying in bed, talking to M, and perusing internet sites.
I hadn't been to the DSW site in a while, so I checked it out,
Clicked on the "Clearance" link
My eyesight began to get foggy.
There was a loud ringing in my ears.
My fingers felt numb.
A bit of drool uncontrollably escaped from between my lips and
The air was becoming too thick to breath in.
Basically, I lost control of all of my senses.
Over a pair of designer boots.
Ever heard of Marc Jacobs?
(oops. sorry. loss of senses again.)
Truthfully, it wasn't just the boots that had gotten me so excited that I couldn't sleep that night.
It was the price of the boots.
See, at that time, I Googled the boots and found them selling elsewhere on the internet upwards of $500. I even saw them priced for over $600 on a couple of sites.
But that night.
Just for me.
These babies were marked waaaaay down.
|What: Marc Jacobs Grey Suede Boots|
When: January, 2011
Original Price: over $500
Final $ Paid: $108.19 (after taxes, no S&H)
Total Saved: hundreds!
(sorry. 'nother moment.)
So, I know that this isn't a pair of $2 trousers, but can you blame me?
I mean, I like a good deal, but I also like quality stuff, which is oftentimes associated with overpriced name brands (but not always necessarily the case).
I certainly wouldn't consider myself a label whore though.
But a discount whore?
Anyway, as much as I had been wanting a pair of grey tall boots (since I saw a pair of Cole Haan boots that were also over $400 a year before), I am thinking of (professionally) dying this pair black. DSW actually did have black leather boots at the time in this style, but I was all woozy over these grey ones that I didn't consider buying both pairs. Regardless, I want to dye these black to also have a contrast with the wood sole/heel (which the black leather ones did not have).
What do y'all think I should do? Grey? or Black?
Thanks for your input and have a great weekend!
Happy Daddy's Day to the husby's, bf's, bro's, unc's, etc.
