Unlike so many others who adore it, I’ve always dreaded shoe-shopping. Having a size 5 – 5 1/2 shoe size has made it almost impossible to find things that I love in my size. I can’t just walk into Macy’s, look at a cool pair of shoes, and try on my size. I’m always greeted with a smiling, “Oh, we only carry those start at a 6 (or 6 1/2, or 7), but we do have this pair (which looks absolutely nothing like the ones originally chosen) in your size”. Which brings me to why I love to buy shoes from DSW. Once every couple of months, I stop by my local DSW Shoes and head straight to the back, toward the clearance racks. Lo and behold, two entire racks of nothing but shoes in my size. No more shoe-tease for me! I have come to the conclusion that not many people wear a size 5 – 5 1/2 shoe, therefore, almost everything in that size ends up in the clearance section. It gets even better because if the shoes have been waiting for me for a long time, the price gets knocked down even more. Alleluia! The adorable Franco Sarto sandals, which were originally $89, came home with me for only about $9! Not to mention the great deal that I got on these adorable little flats by BCBG.
My big splurge were these super awesome Liz Claiborne boots. My feet can’t stop smiling!
