Patience is a virtue

patience is a virtue

I remember eyeing these up around last August, thinking that they would be perfect for my holiday to Italy. Now that summer is fast approaching (or should that be slowly, in England?), I have been thinking about the perfect sandals again. I went into Office yesterday to see if they were there, but they weren't. Luckily, they were reduced on the website! £30, down from £45. I was so happy, I ordered them immediately. I love the colours too, they are my 3 favourite colours, red, blue and yellow, so they will go with most of my wardrobe. Most of the sandals I see around now are too strappy or gladiatory for my tastes, but these are perfect. I think we may have been made for each other! We will have to wait and see if we are when they arrive and if they are comfy. But good things really do come to those who wait! (sometimes...) What's the best thing you've waited for or found in the sale?

  2. Pretty!! And good for walking, hopefully!! What are your plans for Paris? I'm planning now, v excited, off on Wednesday!

    As for sales, I'm not really a sales shopper but I did get an amazing white jacket at the Jaeger outlet (does that count?). And my purple Zadig et Voltaire jumper which I wear ALL the time.

  3. Those are cute! I hope they're comfy, it would be a shame if you didn't like them because of that.

  4. Wicked! And I don't think you can go wrong with a palette like this :) lets hope you'll love them just as much once they're yours!

    I think the best thing i've had in a while in the sales was my pair of maroon boots, they only cost me £9 and I pretty much wear them with everything - bargain!

  5. Those look like some very pretty sandles and you're right, they're great colours! I have been lucky enough to get some great bargains before but the one that comes to mind is my Doc Marten boots. Although I'm not a fan of big chunky black boots... these were a slimmer design, up to my mid calf and were a soft (not patent) maroone red with swirls stitched onto them. Pretty sure they we're supposed to be like $250 but I go them for $150! Hope you enjoy your summer!!

  7. so gorgeously feminine and delicate. It reminds me of a seashell. Once I found a pair of boots i had been eying in a magazine online for $45 marked down from $110 WITH free shipping. That was one happy day.

  10. Those sandals are really pretty - the colours are so nice together, and they'd surely be perfect for a holiday!

    My favourite sale find is probably the mary-janes I got from Chie Mihara.

  17. The colours are lovely! And nice and flat for walking haha.

    Once there was a set of DVDs I wanted to get that cost about $40, but a few months later I managed to get it for $15 online, with free shipping!

  18. Those are the best sandals ever! So colorful and rather vintage-looking.

    I got a skirt that I'd wanted for months at UO last year for more than 50% off. I wish deals like that came around more often.

  23. Those are lovely.
    I guess good things do come to those who wait hehe. :-)

    I always end up going to Office once or twice a year trying on everything I can't afford and making a note of the sizes I need in case the website prices go down to affordable rates :-)
