cookieOptions = {...}; secondhand rose: THRIFTED THURSDAYS/ three

Thursday, 3 October 2013


I'm still in shock over these gorgeous flats. They're the perfect shade of royal blue and I absolutely love the gold hardware on the tassels. The best part though? They were brand new, with the original tags - and I snagged them for $4.99.

Value Village had originally priced them at $12.99, which in my opinion is a bit too steep for a pair of thrifted synthetic flats. Luckily I checked out the sole of the shoe where I saw the original price tag (they were $29.99 new), as well as a clearance sticker that labelled them at $9.99 NEW. So I went up to the cash and demanded them to be lower. Okay, by demanded I mean shyly pointed out that they were less expensive new and crossed my fingers hoping that they'd lower the price - I'm a bit of a coward.

I have worn them a handful of times since I bought them and I get compliments everywhere I go with them. They might just be my new go-to shoes.

  1. Amazing flats. Go you for haggling a lower price :)

    1. Thank you! I've been wearing them practically every day since I got them. No regrets. x
