Acquiring a Covet

 Forever 21 sweater (last seen here), H&M tank, Bongo pants (last seen here), 
Le Chateau booties, Bijoux Terner necklace & Aldo bangle

The other day I went Christmas shopping on my lunch break, and by Christmas shopping I mean I went shopping for myself.  Not intentionally, it just happened.  It didn't mean anything.  Well, it sort of did, because hello, I got these amazing boots out of the deal.  

Back to what I was saying: Christmas shopping on my lunch hour the other day.  It started out well, with my full plan of being to purchase for other, even with some ideas in mind.  Well, that all changed when I saw these boots.  You see, these are no ordinary boots, no, these are boots I saw last year and totally coveted.  However, since the snow had already flown and it was icky out, I talked myself out of spending the $130 on a pair of suede (aka I-cannot-wear-these-until-the-spring-and-in-that-case-who-wants-to-wear-boots-when-it's-finally-spring-and-you-can-wear-sandals) boots.  Almost a year has passed and I found myself actually reminiscing about these boots about three weeks ago,  kicking myself for not pulling the trigger.  So you can imagine my surprise when I walked into Le Chateau the other day and they still had them (irony or a sign?).  That in itself is amazing.  The next amazing thing that happened (because I had to check) was that they were now on sale, and had been marked down twice, to a cool $59.99.  My eyes quickly darted over all the various types of boot boxes until landing on the stack that contained these boots.  Only four pairs remained, surely there would be no size 10... and then there it was, the second box from the top, a big, shiny '10' on the side of it (okay, so it wasn't shiny, just go with it).  I could have jumped and squealed at that very moment if it wasn't for the woman I practically climbed over to get to the stack of boxes.  I grabbed the box, descended it from it's pile and briskly walked over to the bench.  Whipped off my heels and slid my feet into the boots I'd coveted for a year.  They fit!  There were no second guessing, no questions, just a quick lap around the store and I knew I had to have them.  And I did, and here they are a mere two days later in all their glory.  True story.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers!

It's fate! Those boots are spectacular and so is your new sweater! I have a problem with buying things for myself when I'm supposed to be Christmas shopping for others. But who could resist all those fantastic deals this time of year??
