Aren't we super cool? Anyway, we continued on to Old Town where a miracle of all miracles, wonder of all wonders took place. So, there are these shoes, these lovely pointed oxfords from Urban Outfitters that I have been web-stalking and wishing that I owned. They weren't expensive, but I didn't have sufficient funds to make them mine either. But today when we went to UO, lo and behold, there they were! In the sale section! Marked down to 20 dollars!! And there was only one pair in my size!! Bask in their glory:
As soon as I saw The Shoes, I called my dad - because he had given me some extra cash for the day - and asked if I could get them. My dad, if anything, is a man who understands the importance of a sale. (He is basically obsessed with buying things on woot.com.) So I didn't even have to do any convincing. The conversation went like, "Dad there are these shoes that I've been really wanting. And they're on sale for $20. Can I -" "Yes." "I-" "Yep. Bye." PERFECT.
They make me so happy! Robyn said they look very "elven", and I will admit they are somewhat...interesting. But I've been pining after these for months now. Such a sense of fulfillment right now.
AND they look really good with the shirt I got for $4 at Salvation Army.
