I never spend more than $20 on women's shoes. I know that's a ridiculously low sum, but it helps me feel better about buying stuff that doesn't get used much in real life.
A few months ago, I passed by an Aerosoles store and, amid boring styles, a beautiful pair of purple Maryjane pumps with gold stitching caught my eye. They are gorgeous! Suede, a beautiful shade of purple, and the gold is a lovely accent. I truly fell in love with the shoes. Plus, I've been wanting to add a pair of Maryjanes to my collection 'cause I've never had one.
I was crestfallen when I saw the price -- $89. Not even close to my limit. I would have stretched up to $30 or even $40, but $89 was an absolute no.
Cut to today. I'm browsing the Aerosoles website and, with no hope or expectation, head to the Clearance section. There they are! My shoes! At... [drumroll, please]... $19!!
Shoot, score! I snatched up a pair before they could run out of them.
Here's how lovely they look. Fate means for me to have them. Has this ever happened to you?
