New Shoes Cure the Blues...

I actually own a JKC Bangle with this inscribed in it, and I have to admit it is very true!
Last Thurs, Miss R and I ventured over to DFO South Wharf for a Tony Bianco VIP Sale.
Seeing as our get-out-of-work time is approx 4pm, we decided to have a wander around the stores as the sale didn't start till 6pm.
Up first was an old favourite "Under the Table" - a clearance centre stocking clothing, shoes, underwear and accessories, specialising in one of my favourite brands, Barkins. Nothing really caught my eye so we ventured on. A quick browse in Forever New, with the both of us still empty handed, it was clear we were saving our pennies for the shoes!
Luckily, Tony Bianco was just around the corner, so we decided to pop in and earmark which shoes we wanted,then wait till 6pm to claim our 30% off.
Lo and behold, a sign in the store window proclaimed "30% off -one day only".
We couldn't believe it! Lucky us for heading over early!
I quickly found my size section, while Miss R scampered over to hers. I quickly had a pair on and a few in my arms, so I went over to her to workshop my choices.
She too had a small pile at her feet, posing this way and that in front of a mirror.
The sales assistants were very helpful, even after we requested a number of different shoes in various sizes!
I finally decided on a pair of round toed grey suede wedges, and round toed patent black pumps. I thought both would be great and extremely practical for work and at 30%, were a bargain!
After paying for my purchases, and waiting for Miss R, about 6 young girls - head to toe in black, bright eyed and bushy tailed, strolled in and reported to the counter.
These were the girls enlisted to help the masses come VIP time. My friend and I grinned at each other - very pleased with our heels and rapt that we had beaten the crowds!
We also agreed that the thought of new shoes for work would definitely make the next few day (and outfits!) alot more fun!
