Yesterday I decided to stop by Macys to see if they had those Valeri flats on sale after I read Coach Bags thread on how she got them for $55. But, alas, they were still full price. As long as I was at the mall I figured Id stop by the Coach store. I am so grateful to Bagandfootfetish who graciously sent me her PCE card. She is such an angel and even overnighted it to me to make sure I got it in time!!! She is the sweetest thing EVER!!! My darling boyfriend wanted to take me to the boutique after he finished his work day and help me pick out a Turquoise ergo and something else to go with it and I was thinking about getting the Nicola flats in Turquoise. He decided he wanted to pay for it! He said hes been wanting to get me a bag for a while since he knows how obsessed I am with them, but I didnt want him to spend so much money on one for me (were trying to scrimp and save right now) but he said that he really wanted to treat me to something beautiful and since hed be saving money using PCE, hed get me the shoes too. But, to my dismay, the turquoise on the shoes doesnt match up with the turquoise at all! Not even a little! I decided to try them on anyway and they were REALLY uncomfortable. I was disappointed, but since I was already there I started looking at a couple of other pairs of shoes and was drawn to the patent leather Lonnie ballet flats. I turned them over to see that they were marked down to $69! I tried it on in an 8 and it was a tinsy bit tight so I asked if they had any in 8.5. Of course they didnt, so I asked if they could be ordered. The SA looked like she didnt think theyd be available but said shed check anyway. They were!!!! And in all 3 colours (punch, black, and gunmetal). With my PCE they came out to only $51.75 each, so I ordered a pair in Punch AND in black! The best thing is that together INCLUDING tax, they were less expensive than the Nicola flats would have been with PCE before tax. I guess its a good thing those shoes pinched my feet. Otherwise I would have never even turned the Lonnie flats over. Unfortunately my bf had to work late and by the time he got out of work and we drove to the boutique, it was closed (it closed at 8 instead of 9 for summer hours). Oh well, just one more day for me to anticipate my beautiful Turquoise Ergo.
