Have you ever come across something that instantly screamed, "BUY ME!" -- and you didn't do it? Maybe you were lacking funds, maybe you had just bought your 700th pair of shoes and didn't need that 701st pair. But whatever the reason, you kept looking at the item over ... and over ... and over ... and, okay, you get the point. Well, such was the case for me with the DKNY Marcey Strappy Pump.
I first noticed this beauty back in October while browsing Net-A-Porter's new arrivals. I was immediately drawn to the lipstick red suede, the cage silhouette, the flattering pencil heel ... but, I cautioned myself against buying them, since I already had red strappy heels. Completely different ones, mind you, but I just couldn't stomach the $255 price tag.
Then, of course, came the wanting. The days of weeks of yearning, of going back to Net-A-Porter again and again, seeing them still available in my size, and STILL not buying them.
Until a few weeks ago, that is. Lo and behold, I discovered them on DKNY's website -- ON SALE. I snagged them immediately for only $125 (currently, they're at $178.49, which I still think is a steal).
I've been wearing them to death since they arrived last week and I've never been happier. So, the moral of the story? If you continue to covet an item for more than two months, just buy it. You'll be unbelievably happy with the result!
