Sales. Who doesn´t like sales? Besides, who doesn´t like to indulge yourself at this time of the year? I love to pamper myself. And nothing gives me more pleasure than owning a piece that I already laid an eye for a long time, but the price was unappealing. The very best: find a pair of completely inspired Isabel Marant boots (which I also have a major crush), which had gone from the stores and had their glorious return and for less than 15 Euros. I tell you, our reunion was a tremendously emotional moment. And when paying, my bank account thanked me with applause and standing ovations.
Now you ask me, but wouldn´t you rather have in your possession a true Isabel Marant boots? I think my answer is pretty obvious with the shoe obsession that I have. Of course I would love to have the-most-perfect-boots-on-earth but we must be realistic and I feel that I will touch the wound and hopefully not hurt sensibilities: why spend an exorbitant amount of money when I have almost the same model or a quite similar one to the original at a fraction of the price? You know, my style changes with my mood and so the odds that I will use whatever it is for more than one season is practically null so I prefer to find items worthy of great designers but at a more friendly price. I know, I know, the quality isn´t the same but I am here to speak only of the aesthetics of the thing. Sure there are timeless pieces in which we have to invest good money but everything more superfluous you can bet on cheaper brands! You will see that your wallet will thank you.
