my black friday purchases finally arrived!

When my twin sister and I found out that over Black Friday weekend Solestruck was having a huge sale on the Sunday (50% off sale items) we lost our minds. Julia got 2 pairs, and I got 3. They are SWEET and were certainly worth the headache....I got up at 5 that morning to feed the cats and started trying to order my shoes but the site kept crashing and after almost 2.5 hours my sister finally managed to place our order, which ended up printing out a receipt showing the 5 pairs of shoes at initial sale price, which means although we ended up being charged the right amount, customs thought we paid a helluva lot more. Which now means we have to appeal the ridiculous customs charges we got, even though it was the company's fault. Hopefully that works out in the end. 

So here they are...

These are Jeffrey Campbell Dino booties in beige. LOOOOOVE these. Wore them out for breakfast at the pub this morning. Found out the really flat sole is very slippery so here is yet another pair of shoes I need to take in to get some grip put on the sole. These were regular $170 and I paid about $58.

Then I got a pair of black suede Senso Ginneva booties. These are ridiculously comfortable. Love all the buckles and spikes. These were regular $240 and I paid $100.

Last but not least, the Jeffrey Campbell Razzo boot in black suede. They say it's thigh-high but that's not exactly true. They just barely cover my knees. Also super comfortable given the cute little heel. These were regular $335 and I paid $100.

Glad you all approve. :-)
Julie, after 13 (or so) pairs, most of which came in the crossword box, I have yet to actually do it.

Sorry, so late to read this post but... Wow!!! Your purchases are superb! Love what you scored. Have you worn them much lately?

The bottom ones suck - they are a light fabric so they tend to fall down my leg. Kind of cheap looking. I keep forgetting to give them to my twin sister. The other 2 I adore but because they aren't very suitable to our winters I leave them at work and wear them in the office.
