Shoes: Thrifted (Bass) – Tights: Target – Dress: Thrifted – Shirt: Thrifted – Belt: Thrifted
Okay friends, I swear that I had EVERY intention of buying a pair of oxfords from this post. You were all so great about helping me out, so THANK YOU for that! However, while I was figuring out which oxfords to buy, I wasn’t planning on a miracle happening. Seriously, a REAL life miracle. This pair (bottom row, second from the left) of $79 Bass classics, in my size AND looking brand new as far as I can tell, ended up at my local Goodwill with a price tag of $2.99. Not even kidding!
I’ve been drooling over every pair of Bass shoes I’ve seen lately. So when I saw these, I politely wiped the spittle from my chin, looked around to make sure I wasn’t being recorded for some kind of cruel joke that would later go viral on Youtube, nodded in agreement as the cashier commented on their cuteness and wonderful condition (I dared not tell her that I knew what a great deal this was, in case she decided to change her mind or up the price… I mean my shoes were in HER hands at this point), drove home (perhaps too quickly), and showed them to my husband while ALSO showing him the retail price online.
And guys, it’s official. I think this is the FIRST thrifted find that my husband is actually proud of. When I wear them and get compliments, he says, “Tell them the story about them and how much they cost!” I don’t know if it’s just relief that now I don’t need the $77 tassel oxfords I was leaning towards (seriously though, the MINUTE those bad boys go on sale I swear…), or if he too knows that we witnessed a miracle that day…
