Anyhoo, I couldn't not stop in the Rack and after rummaging thru a few non-exciting refurb bags (just Tory and Kate Spade) the SA mentioned they got a few shoes in too. So I ran. Good thing I did.
The all-black kitten heeled Rockstuds are a perfect size 40. I won the worn and refurbished lottery. How often does EXACLY what you want turn up? I had $80 in Nordstrom notes so they were just $170!!! Plus I triple pointed the day to get even more bang for my buck. I had to take the gold ones too even though they are size 41.5 because they aren't that huge - but I will have to have additional holes put in because the straps are a little loose. But again, for $250 they had to come home with me. I know I have a mixed audience so some of you don't get spending so much (even if they are $1000 shoes) but I REALLY wanted these. For a REALLY long time. I literally hit the jackpot.
I've also been stalking Century's 90% off stuff and my advice is to keep checking for returns. Yesterday I found these red Chloe flats for $27.72 (they still have the $695 Saks tag on them!) and the metallic ones for just $17.82.
So yeah, it's been a really good week. I finally have my Rockstuds. FINALLY. I went in to pickup Rockstud totes for friends and walked out with my dream shoes. Call it karma...
For all of you still waiting for yours, may the Rockstud gods be with you too!
