for at least 2 months....i have been lusting after a pair of boots. a pair of gorgeous black riding boots that were a fraction of the price of the frye's i've also been lusting after, but would rather not pay $300 for right now (maybe one day though....maybe one day) on target.com.
a few weeks ago they had a buy one, get one 40% off...but i didn't bite the bullet.
AND THEN THEY DISAPPEARED OFF THE SITE!!! i was crushed, they were only online so i thought hope was lost.
then they returned...and still i didn't bite the bullet. i was just trying to be a good girl, and not drop the cash just yet.
yesterday....the universe totally rewarded my patience.
because as i'm browsing the shoe aisles, wasting time...i spy on a shelf a tiny glint of silver...like a pirate's treasure or something.
aaaaaaand instead of being $70....they were marked down to $35, presumably to get rid of them since they're only online unless someone returns them to the store.
my heart started racing a little....would they be my size? would i love them on my little chicken legs as much as i love them on the website?
YES ON ALL COUNTS!!!
i was clutching those bad boys in my greedy little hands like a crackhead taking one last hit before heading to rehab. like a toddler pageant queen clutches her giant crown. you get the idea...i wanted them a lot.
aaaaaaand then....i may or may not have scoured the shelves, found them in brown and tan, and then pranced my little self to the checkout as fast as my soon-to-be-booted-up-in-style legs could take me!!
so a big shout out to whoever decided to buy a bunch of boots online and hate them...cuz this girl is all the better for it!
