I have wanted a pair of Sperry Topsiders for over two years- I don't know what has kept me from buying them. Probably because you can't wear them with every outfit and I just always found something else to do with $100.
Monday was the 4th of July and Jerry and I were going to meet our friend L, who was working at Nordstrom, so she could teach us about the Ergo baby carrier-- and then buy us one with her discount. SCORE. (Yes, we're ditching our Baby Bjorn for it. Mamas-to-be, you should know that I'm wishing I had known just how amazing the Ergo was before we spent the money on the BB. Holy moley.) On the way to Nordstrom we pass J.Crew and, since that is Jerr and I's favorite store in the entire universe, we were naturally obligated to stop in.
So I passed all the full-price lovelies, making me drool and dream, and headed to the back room where I could peruse the magical sales. On a shelf immediately to the right, through the doorway, was the sale shoes collection. The poor, scattered, mismatched shoe boxes- two boxes of this style, three of that one.
Wait. What is this?? A box that says "Sperry for J.Crew"? In a size 8.5???? But, that's MY size. Surely I must take a look.
Open the box, Lauren. Be brave. Take a deep breath and find out what is inside. They're probably the wrong color, anyway. Or maybe only one is the right size and the other was wrongly placed. You're only going to know if you open it.
(opens the lid) Oooooooooh. They're beeeeeeeeeeautiful.
Rip off platform heels currently on my feet. Slide feet into the Sperrys.
I have never felt anything so soft or cushion-y in my life.
How much are these puppies, anyway? I'm sure they're ridiculous. It's J.Crew, after all. And these are Sperry Topsiders. Even sale is going to mean moolah.
Originally $98. Yep, okay that's expected.
On sale for $59.99?? Wow- that's nice!
ADDITIONAL 30% OFF RED PRICE?? $41.99?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
For those of you who don't consider math a strong point, that is $56.00 off!!!! Yes, that is OVER HALF.
Hello, reward for waiting so long.
Aren't they beautiful?? :)
