Since missing out on the coveted Cynthia Vincent for Target wedges, I've been on a relentless hunt for the perfect pair of brown leather strappy platform wedges. This pursuit got me thinking about my approach to shopping. Because I buy things on super sale or at thrift stores, I just take what I can get. While I have a lot of clothes, I'm still missing certain key pieces. Long story short: I spent a bit more money on these shoes than I typically would. I'm pleased with my decision, though. They are comfortable, good quality and will go with so much.
I know $55 isn't that much for a pair of shoes, but the truth is, I bought another pair of shoes this week for $50. While I'm feeling a tad guilty, I think they were a smart choice as well, and I can't wait to share them with you. My thrifty ways are definitely not changing, but I do believe in paying a bit more for quality every once in awhile. The best possible scenario: when you find just what you're looking for at a thrift store. But sometimes you just have to go after what you want instead of waiting for it to come to you.
