Always Follow your Instincts

I was recently at Penny's trying on my "Affordable Dream Boots". Over-the-Knee, black with stiletto heels and the top perfectly folded over. I imagined them with leggings, long sweaters and many compliments as well. The sales guy even offered me an extra 10 dollar off coupon .......................
But, my reality police was kicking my shin, reminding me that a cap on my stupid tooth was way more important (stupid cherry pit ;), than some silly not-even-real-leather boots. So, after walking around the shoe dept. trying with all my might to justify this purchase, (No one can even see the broken tooth anyway.......... Come on, you so deserve them .................. It will be an investment in your coolness factor....................)
The battle went on for a very long time, and finally my Mom was starving, so I decided to walk away. Bootless.

When I got home, I did my usual thrift-store 1/2 price day lookie-loo, and lo and behold, sitting on the top shelf of the shoe rack, were these REAL leather pirate boots , stilettos and the perfect folded over top for 8 bucks, hardly ever worn !  ~  Thanks Thrifty Gods for smiling down on me and reminding me to follow my "sensible" gut sometimes :)

Dum , Dum, Da Dum !!!

Wow, congratulations on finding those boots! I've still only been to Goodwill once, but I was impressed by the huge amount of nice clothes in excellent condition. The people who worked there were really nice, too. I hope to go back.

Reva--I've been boot shopping lately and have been put off by the vinyl boots. But the thrifting gods haven't smile on my boot searching--yet.

I really like this top and the cameo. where did you find that?

And, here's hoping, the tooth holds up until the money for the cap comes together.
