The Prada that Got Away

Fashion

I saw a pair of perfectly used Prada’s on the shoe rack at the local goodwill. I hesitated to buy them because I was shopping with a client. Being that I was not shopping for myself I was trying to practice self-control and they weren’t even in my size.

After getting home from my shopping trip I couldn’t stop thinking about those damn shoes. The more I thought about them the more I began to think that I made a bad decision and that I should immediately head back to the store because they were only $10. Yes, you read that correctly $10 for a pair of black Prada shoes which would normally retail for $325. Which means that if I went back to the store right now to purchase them they would have been an investment because I could have had equity in my soles.

I thought about the shoes all day and I even dreamed I was practicing walking in my new shoes that were 2.5 sizes bigger. I woke up at 3 a.m and the first thought that crossed my mind was that the store is probably closed for the night but they do open at 9 a.m. So I said a small prayer to the shoe gods that everyone else who shopped there today overlooked them as I had. But before I could go back to sleep I came up with the perfect sole saving plan – If I woke up at 6 a.m. I could be at the store by 8:30 a.m which means I will beat the morning crowd and get my shoes…

Stay tuned
