I’ll confess. The other morning when I was on the train to work, three Vietnamese ladies came on board, chattering about something (I’m not Vietnamese, so I wouldn’t know). One of them took out a David Jones bag, and pulled out a shiny gold Oroton box. I had to take a covert shot to remember the pretty booties.
Another inspected its contents – a pair of pretty tan boots. A little online sleuthing later that day discovered they were the Supreme boots. I noted the price on the box, $445. Then I spotted the mark down sticker on the shoe. $99.
Yes. Just $99.
So I quickly made a mental note to visit David Jones later that day. Probably a bad thing. As I ended up with two pairs of shoes. Granted they both had a leather sole, lining and upper.
Later that evening I went up to the shoe level of DJ’s and it was shoe-heaven. Tables filled with all sorts of shoes. Flats, heels, boots, sandals. I suppose it is mid-season and the transition period is beginning.
Unfortunately I didn’t find any Oroton boots in my size. I did walk away with two pairs of heels though. One set of Milana booties ($89 down from $300), leather upper, sole and lining, and the second a pair of Robert Robert heels ($49 down from $200). Orchid purple suede heels with patent black cap toes, also leather upper, sole and lining. I think they will be good work staples. I really couldn’t believe how much they were marked down!
Please excuse the iPhone photo quality. I still need to waterproof these… But maybe they will come out a little closer to winter.
Have you found any great bargains in the mid season sales? Would love to hear about them!
