When the autumn weather hit, I made the annual trip to town to stock up on all of the winter essentials: coat, scarf, umbrella, gloves, hat and boots.
On this mini haul I picked up 2 pairs of boots from Primark. The first were a mid heel, tan coloured ankle boot and the second were THOSE mid heel, black “suede” ankle boots where the heel of the boot was covered entirely in studs. And I freaking love them. I’ve worn these trusty little studded boots day in, day out ever since and they’re now receiving some TLC in the cobblers being re-heeled and re-soled (because I love them so much). AT THE TIME, they also had a stone coloured pair of the studded heel boots. I uhm’d and ahh’d and eventually realised decided that I couldn’t justify buying them as well.
AND THEN last week, when I was on the hunt for some snow friendly boots here they were: the stone coloured studded heels, perched on the sale shelf. One pair. One size. MY SIZE. With a £10 tag on I figured it was a decent enough bargain and toodled off to the checkout along with a bargain £2.00 purse.
“£5.00” said the sales assistant.
“FOR BOTH?” I asked open mouthed, resembling a common goldfish
“Yep, the purse is £2.00, the boots are £3.00”
3 POUND FOR BOOTS?
And so I paid, clutched my £3.00 bargain boots to me and made my way home looking and feeling very smug. The end.
