It isn’t often I have a wonderful shopping experience, snooty sales assistants, crowds, inflated prices & a lack of sizes often get the best of me & I return home feeling defeated by the retail monster. So when I have a better-than-usual shopping experience, I wanna tell the world.
Thanks to my Grandma & Mum, I have tiny feet, tiny as in the only chain stores I can get shoes from are children’s stores!
Don’t get me wrong, there are some beautiful grown-up shoes out there in a size 4, but only luxury brands seem to stock them.
So while I save up for my Louboutins, a girl can’t just strut about town bare-foot now can she? It is because of this that sometimes I give in & buy shoes of less-than-desirable quality simply because I need something to prevent my feet from the harsh city terrain & to prevent passers-by from questioning my sanity.
You can imagine my delight when one Saturday afternoon I stumbled into my local Betts Kids store & realised their size 4 fits juuuuuust right!
I almost passed out when I realised the ruby-red grandpa slippers I had tried on were only $19.95…. & so were the black leather-look ankle boots!!
Needless to say I purchased these shoes without hesitation & the sales assistant helpfully let me know that Wittner sometimes stock a 4 as well.
I walked into Wittner, who were conveniently located directly across from Betts Kids, still giddy after purchasing my shiny new shoes & picked up a pair of berry coloured suede ankle boots in a size 4, from the sale rack.
The LAST pair, in MY size & on SALE.
The shopping Gods were smiling upon me that day my friends.
Ever had a super shopping experience?
