WHAT LUCK HANNAH

I could possibly be the happiest girl in the world right now. I could put off this post till tonight but no, this can’t wait.

Too amazing to not be shared pronto!

Remember this (half of a) pair of shoes that I was dreaming of for Spring?

If you can’t remember. Smack yourself in the head. I just posted it up yesterday. Hahah! Just kidding.

Let me tell you a quick story of how patience can pay well.

When I first saw this pair of shoes on FOYF, I was in love. I loved how it’s shaped like ballerina flats from the front, the chunky heel, and the satin used. So, when I found out FOYF was holding a pre-order for it on Vvestiges, I was stoked … till I saw that they would cost me SGD170 (and without postage). I couldn’t stop admiring it, visiting the site daily (I don’t think I even closed the tab till the pre-order was closed) but if I were to get it, I’d go hungry for two weeks at least leaving me no choice but to eat the shoes instead. I even had wanted to settle for the cheaper alternatives like these:

These ones should cost from about $60-65. I thought they look pretty actually, but could foresee it more as a display collectible than having me actually wearing it out. Plus, I didn’t like the two ‘winged’ part. It would look so weird on me. I know it.

So imagine my thrill when I googled for a picture of the black pair, got a link to an eBay auction, and see that it is in my size. It was unbelievable I tell you. When I first chanced upon it, the current bid was at AUD9.99. So cheap right!! But ok no, I didn’t get away at such a bargain.

About 15 minutes away from the end of auction (that is, about a good hour ago), I was all set to fire my bids! Initially I was outbid every time I placed a new one, but then because I had already set a budget in mind, I took a chance and yaaaayy!! These Miu Miu inspired babies are mine at AUD47 including postage. How sweet is that!

I can’t wait for them to arrive! Will post pictures of them soon.

And yes, let me tell you, good things (and at bargain prices) come to the shopaholic who waits.
