Some Days the World Just Aligns in Your Direction

or "How to Score a Major Sale."

Though I try not to be super-materialistic, I do have a MAJOR weakness for shoes.  In the past few years, I have realized that it is better to save my money and spend more on a great pair, rather than have a lot of cheap ones that fall apart or go out of style quickly. 

I have been lusting over this pair, appropriately named "Swoon" since November. 

J Shoes 'Swoon' via here
 $180 retail on the webpage (and the local store I love).  Found for $80 on sale on the website, but a half size too big.  Finally discovered (last pair!!) on Amazon for $66, with free shipping.

Can you say - SCORE!!!
