Every year during the month of my birth, I patiently gather all of my 'birthday' coupons and decide what the perfect gift for myself will be. Payless never fails me with their discounts, and I knew before the email even hit my box that a 20% discount coupon would be headed my way. Instead of rushing to by the most impractical thing I can find (because it's my birthday, and I will shop impractically if I want to) I decided this year to take my time and make the perfect purchase. All of that is the polite way of saying I put approximately 10 pairs of shoes in my online shopping cart, visited them every day and than eventually and painstakingly decided one by one who had to be voted off the island. I knew that I wanted a pair of shoes that would be perfect for work, and that could take me from season to season. My patience paid off when Payless announced their famous Buy One Get One 1/2 sale started the day before my actual birthday. Thank goodness for patience ( and indecision!) In the end I decided for successfully living 24 years of life I deserved this amazing pair of heels in both this striking purple, and a deep Navy. Amazingly comfortable, versatile and perfect for both work and play these shoes have served me well for both Fall and Winter. I'm ready to put my 24 year old thinking cap on and get to remixing these beauties for Spring.
