Lord & Taylor, a holiday sale with an additional 25% off coupon…Priceless.
I was on the hunt for a replacement pair of Wellies. The other pair had to go. Rest in peace. As fate would have it, Lord & Taylor would be having a sale this week. Sweet. There’s nothing like a Lord & Taylor sale during the holidays. Nothing. Sure, other department stores have sales, but hands down, if you’re a hot chica with a desire for a nicer collection of shoes than the budget stores will provide, run, don’t walk, to the second floor of the Lord & Taylor flagship store in New York City on Fifth Avenue. But be prepared, with a city of almost 9 million, with probably more than half of those being women, there are hot chicas everywhere and…they…mean…business…when it comes to the L&T shoe department.
I had my “game face” on when I headed to Lord & Taylor in the pouring…and I mean, pouring…rain last night. Once I got off the elevator on the second floor, it was like: Charge! The place was packed. It truly was like a frenzied dim sum joint in Chinatown. Yes, it was that busy on a Wednesday night. There were women everywhere, I’m serious, and they all looked like me–on a mission. There was only one problem with this mission. The sale didn’t officially start until today, Thursday. But, leave it to Lord & Taylor to make sure that all isn’t lost. Solution: Buy now. Pick up later. So, that’s what I did. I found my replacement Wellies and–wait for it…the hottest, rockin’-est pair of black, suede, 5″ platform booties. A must have for the girl on the go in Nueva York this season. All I had to do was pick them up on my way to work this morning. They held them in pre-sale storage overnight.
But, let’s back up. When I saw those booties, and slipped them on my feet, they were like buddah (not “butter” or “buttah”–Jamaican-style, more the “Saturday Night Live” Linda Richmond “kwawfee tawk” New York-style). They were like manna from Heaven. Ahhhhhhhh… Yes, like that. I can’t wait to wear them. And there’s no time like tomorrow. I’m not putting them on pause. They need to be worn ASAP.
These booties are so fierce, and not in a “I look fierce” kind of way but in a “I AM fierce” kind of way.
Tomorrow’s temperature: Low to mid 40s Fahrenheit / 3 – 7 degrees Centigrade with partly sunny skies and only a 20% chance of rain.
Fingers crossed, I’ll be fiercely fabulous tomorrow in my 5″ booties as I head to one of many holiday parties this December. And the sweetest deal of all: I got Wellies and my smokin’ hot booties at rock-bottom prices. Happiness!
