Where Does It Stop?

Lately, all I've been looking for every time I go into a shoe store are booties. Simple, high-heel booties with no straps, no laces, no hardwares, basically... no gimmicks. I bought several pairs from different stores to try on and compare them at home, but none of them left me feeling satisfied. 

It was Monday, Nov 26, which was also known as Cyber Monday. I just got back from work, so I got changed and went to my desk to check my gmail. I saw a bunch of "Cyber Monday Deals" emails from all of the flash-sale websites I signed up for. I started deleting every single one of them before my eyes stopped on an email from The Peacock Parade about their Cyber Monday deals. The Peacock Parade is a Canadian-based flash-sale website, which to me only means one thing: NO CUSTOM DUTIES! So I thought, "Meh, no harm in checking it out. My size should all be sold out by now". A few scrolls down their page later, I saw an image of a black suede bootie from Sam Edelman. For $29. MY HEART STOPPED.


Less than a week later, the booties arrived in my mailbox ♥
I returned all the "failed" booties back to stores and never looked back :)
