For readers who have been reading this blog a long time, you guys know that I usually Tuesdays to share with you the latest and greatest in phenomenal footwear.
I'm loping around my favorite thrift store, honestly not really finding anything I'm in love with. Empty handed but not empty hearted, I head towards the door, passing by a large shoe display case, usually a host for high end shoes (that are usually NOT my size).
On this particular day, I looked at the case, seeing a card with a strange number in it: MY SIZE!
Behind the card?
A pair of barely worn Black Satin Manolo Blahnik Mules.
To say that I snatched them out of the case faster than I could have blinked was an understatement. They were on my feet for a test ride, off my feet, and paid for even faster than that.
This particular pair of Manolos usually would set you back about $400.
I snagged them for a 10th of the price.
The moral of this story? Always have your eyes open. Simply being observant when in a thrift store has led to my absolute best finds. Would I have even seen these if I was busy playing on my phone or distracted, I might have missed something great.
I mean, cmon ladies, who doesn't need a gorgeous pair of black pumps?
So keep thrifting and keep your eyes peeled. I guarantee you'll find something great.
