Me and budgets just don't get along. Let's start there, LOL. I was just minding my business at the grocery store. Then something (read the Devil) said: "Hey girl, you know there's a DSW down the street and on the right." Next thing I know, I'm walking into to DSW headed for the clearance aisles.
I consider myself to be a professional sale stalker. So, I always start in the back of the store. This is usually where the sales are hiding. One of the reasons I love sales at DSW is that I don't have to guess how much something costs. Each percentage off corresponds with the color of the price tag and they have easy to follow charts that tell you what the final price will be.
So, imagine my surprise when I found these lovely Steve Madden booties on the clearance shelf. I've had my eyes on them for about two months. But the way my budget is set up...lol. However, at $79.95 and 30% off, I couldn't pass them up. On top of that, I had a $10 rewards certificate that brought my total to $45. Oh, and did I mention DSW has double points right now. Boom! I smell another rewards certificate coming soon.
I can't wait to wear these out. They're a great burgundy color and have the perfect chunky heel. I can see them with a good knit sweater dress or a pair of skinny jeans.
Well, there you have it. I look forward to sharing more of my clearance confessions soon. I'm trying the whole being on a budget thing, but sometimes you just cant resist. Fashion Made Me Do It!
