Guess What I Found?!?

I wanted these light brown, leather, strappy sandals when they first came out...I eyed them all pre-spring and spring, but for whatever reason, I thought it'd be a good idea to wait for them to go on sale. After patiently waiting and getting word from The Daily Obsession that these shoes had gone on sale, I rushed immediately to www.bananarepublic.com to order mine. Alas...they were gone. Heartbroken, I had to pretend that I'd never seen these gorgeous shoes....



...that is, until today. I was shopping with one of my bffs when we decided to swing by BR. I have enough BR clothes, so I decided to wander a bit without really looking at anything (otherwise, this shopaholic would surely have a tough time saying no). Lucky for me, I decided to check out the sale shoes because I found my shoes! They were size 6, and seeing as how it's been several weeks since these shoes originally sold out, I figured this was the only shoe left. Still, I decided to have the BR rep check in the back and would you believe they had my size! Best part - they're only $29.99 now! I guess the best things do come to those who wait!
