So, funny story. As you can probably tell, I love shoes and I have quite a lot of them. My shoe size hasn't changed since I was thirteen and I have amassed quite a collection. For the last five plus years, I have gotten most of my shoes from a local boutique. The owner is awesome and has great taste so I always find something I like. Plus, they always have great end of season sales.
Recently, my mom went shoe shopping at this boutique. When she walked in, the owner wanted to know my shoe-size because someone had returned a pair of Hunter rain boots with a broken buckle in a size 8. Of course, I am a size 8 so she gave me a great discount on the boots!
Clearly, it pays off to have a relationship with local stores since it got me this awesome pair of boots! XO
