I’ve been a bit m.i.a since oh around my birthday. My last post was about me working on my webstore which is what I’ve spent most of my time doing when I’m not at work. Let’s see if I can recap with a mini photo diary of sorts. Recently I’ve bought way to many pairs of shoes. It’s out of control.
Got these (Shrewsberry) at work for $44.35. They were originally $125 so with my discount they would have been $62.50. But they were marked down to $84.98 with an extra 30%. We have the option with sale shoes to either use our discount on the original price or use the given sale. Using the sale would have made them like $59.49 so if not for Black Friday I would have used the sale just because it doesn’t eat into my alloted discount budget. Well in rolls Black Friday and we all find out you get an extra extra 30% off. So that’s how I ended up spending $44.35 on $125 shoes. Woo for me. The leather is so nice too. I came home and was googling for a pic of it when I stumbled on these from Marc Jacobs.
Well don’t these look familiar. I dig the white contrast lacing and the lower heel would be better for work and to have a super cute casual sandal that still had a heel. What I don’t dig is the $550 price tag this had. It’s sold out now of course but I can’t help feeling like I came out ahead. Also thanks to Zahara who bought my Shrewsberry for me so I could get in on that discount because I forgot my wallet at home. Yes I forgot my wallet at home on Black Friday. I’m telling you it was probably for the best.
Launched my webstore Filthy Magic. I’m kind of crappy at marketing though I guess. I’m trying, though. I’ve put a lot of money and effort into this so I hope it works out cuz I’m not made of money and I could have bought shoes. lulz. I just want to bring people pretty clothes and run my own business again so I don’t have to work for anyone else. Plus you know it’s my dream to style everyone. Soon I hope to get more items in store but I can’t until I get more orders. I wanna have new arrivals by Christmas though so I might bite the bullet and use one of my paychecks that isn’t relegated to bills.
Then I got these. Another Aldo pair so discount for me! The last shoe we don’t stock in my store because I work in an outlet and it’s too expensive. A customer happened to return them in my size and my Assistant Manager let me know so I could get first dibs. It never even made it to display. See we can’t use our discount at other Aldo’s hence the rabidness with which I snatched these up. There are tons of shoes we just never get so the only way for me to ever have them is to pay regular price and working for Aldo I just feel silly buying a shoe at the regular price. There’s a list of other shoes I want but since they’re not Aldo shoes I haven’t been able to buy them because they’re all $160+ and I don’t get a discount.
I have tons of other pictures to post (of real people even lol) but it’s been so long since I blogged and I don’t want there to be such a gap so I’ll say this is to be continued.
