This is my last pair of booties for this year I promise! I didn’t have this color yet and obviously I needed it, you can’t go wrong with chestnut brown. These particular booties have been on my radar for quite some time, like months. I was looking for a tan pair and found these ones by Steve Madden on Macy’s. They are called the PIERCE. I thought they were so perfect, except they weren’t on sale. Full price they are $129 and since they were Steve Madden and not Madden Girl my coupons didn’t work. So I waited and would occasionally check. I even tried to find other tan ones and couldn’t find any others as good as the PIERCE. When I checked another time THEY WERE OUT OF MY SIZE. They still weren’t on sale but if I wanted to buy them anyways I couldn’t! I was so sad, like way more sad about a pair of shoes than I should have been.
I still didn’t give up though, I kept checking. I even started checking Nordstrom, which had them in my size but not on sale. I checked and checked and checked and NO LUCK! I stopped checking for awhile, I was discouraged, but right before Christmas I was browsing online at Nordstrom like I shouldn’t have been and checked for the booties. Oh my gosh they had my size, in the chestnut, for 40% off!! I instantly bought them. They were supposed to deliver on Christmas Eve and we weren’t going to be home so I had them deliver to my sisters since I would see her. Well they delivered 2 days before Christmas Eve (figures) and when we all got together for Christmas day guess what? My sister forgot them! So late Christmas night I had to go to her house on the way home to get them. Seems like a lot of trouble for shoes right? Well get this, they didn’t even fit! Not kidding! I’m ALWAYS a 7.5 in Steve Madden so that’s what I ordered. These booties are so narrow in the toes they were too tight! I was so mad it was actually kind of funny.
I returned the booties and luckily they were still on sale when I ordered an 8 and thank goodness Nordstrom does free shipping. So there they were ordered. When I went to check the tracking when I got the notification I saw that I forgot to change the shipping address from my sister’s house to my place so AGAIN I had to wait. Finally I got them this past Friday and can’t wait to wear them this week!
See, this shows that when you want something you don’t give up!
