$10 boot sale, Valentine's day

Like Tree43Likes

My shoes finally showed up!

They all fit, and they look like their pictures, so I'm satisfied! Like sew and sew said, their quality is somewhat lacking, but you can't really tell until you're looking up close. I'm sure they'll last the rest of this season and even next fall/winter (okay, maybe half of next winter ), so that's all I can really expect from $10 boots.

Also, the synthetic smell of something (I'm guessing fake suede) was overpowering when I opened the boxes. But otherwise, no complaints!

The amount of time from slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is exactly one bananosecond.
I do have a secret yen for pink in unexpected places. ~ninja dog
I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
Ah! You make a very valid point! I'm too lazy at this particular moment to take pics of me wearing each of them (because it would require me to change out of my sweatpants) but I did snap a pic of all of them together! Except it's sideways. So neck exercises are required for viewing this pic!

Thankfully my laptop is easily turned sideways.

All very cute, thank you for sharing! If you get a chance to take some of you wearing them that would be awesome. I'm still living vicariously through the boot wearers around here.

Yeah, the pic is no fun on here! It looked better on my phone!

I shall muster up the energy at some point today to take pics, most likely!

Ok, so taking pictures of yourself in shoes is more difficult than I had anticipated! Hence why each picture is taken a slightly different and awkward angle!

I forgot to take into account that I'm probably much shorter than the shoe model, and thus the black boots are much taller than I usually care for. But they don't look too horrible, so I'll probably still wear them anyhow!

Just a suggestion.

It probably applies to a lot of things brought into my household, but combined with that smell, I just made sure to store the boots where my cat can't get to them (she would surely nuzzle the heck out of them).

Oh my goodness, Scrills those are AWESOME! Thank you for taking pictures!

sew and sew, when I shop there are signs like that on the aisle with all the dishware type items. There's no telling what we're ingesting.

Spring - yikes. Good to know, at least.

Scrills, I almost got those pumps in a lower heel, kind of wish I had now.

Everyone's shoes look great

I am down with this becoming a V-day tradition.

scg - love the brown boots!
scrills - love the black and gold pumps! gorgeous.

Some of my purses are very smelly at first, especially the shiny vinyl ones. The boyfriend's youngest son always wrinkles his nose and asks me if I bought a new toxic Chinese purse. : )

I got my boots and purse today from shoedazzle and love them both!
The boots came in a great sliding drawer type box that I will uses for storing stuff. They are very true to size and very nice.
The purse is super. Very well made, not smelly, and was packaged up like it was some fancy expensive bag.

A great deal for $40 for both.

I am so happy y'all are taking pictures!

I have got to get me a green purse! I love that color.

good point. I do love the sliding boxes
Those are all hot, scrills! I love them.

I must agree about the boxes! They are so nice!
