So the other week, Georgina and myself headed up to Birmingham which I shall write a post about on my day off tomorrow? If I’ve got the day off!!
So I went to TK Maxx which for me is almost like setting fire to my money. Usually I pick up some nice deals but in the Bull Ring centre in Birmingham Centre I noticed the men’s section was huge. After collecting some clothes I headed to the shoe section downstairs and browsed what I believed, wouldn’t be a big selection with the clown feet I have. Oh how I was wrong, there in front of me was fairly nice selection. I gave the once over and picked up some joke shoes to try on and some I liked.
After browsing I went back to the selection and something caught my eye. Something silver with a nice design. I picked them up and turned to Georgina holding this pair of shoes. She said, ‘what are those’ and I replied ‘Dolce & Gabbana’.
We both gave each other the ‘look’ as in the look you give someone to say, go for it! I sat down next to her holding this pair and the design was so nice. I tried them on and they were awfully comfortable. I thought to myself, when am I ever going to hold a pair of D&G shoes and was glad I tried them on. I then thought about my blog and thought I need to buy these. I checked the tag and they were £480 down to £99. I’d made up my mind as I turned to Georgina with another look saying ‘yes’.
Her look back was a mixture of doubt and certainty. In the end she couldn’t believe when I was already walking to the cashier. We both felt like we were being reckless and crazy. It was a comical day and full of laughs and great buys. I do not regret my D&G purchase, just need a nice place to wear them too. Hopefully the future for me if I continue to work hard, holds nice labels. The gold selection label meant that this was a sort of one off in the store.
As you can see with the shoes, one is slightly off colour which is fine, a little buffering and polish and I can get them both looking sharp.
