Hello, hello! Time to save money and stay beautiful. So come on and let’s get started!
Ok Belk.. You always find a way to win my heart. Whether with makeup, clothes of shoes.. You guys know the store Belk? If you don’t know, check their website: BELK.
What I think is funny when I go to Belk is that while I am looking at some clothes, checking the clearance part, or just chillin’, I look around and I realize that only mature to old people buy at Belk! I think I’ve never seen any 20 year old girl at Belk. I’m always the youngest one when I go there, haha. Again, that I have seen so far. I can be wrong.. Maybe I have the old mind and I automatically go to the mature people section or whatever hahaha. Why not? If I like it, I will buy it! No matter if it’s ‘meant to be for old people’ or not.
Anyway, enough with the blah blah blah. Like I was saying.. I was walking around Belk and I went to the shoes section, because they always have some good deals there. And damn!! The prices are even better than the last time I went there. There I was, with my zebra socks (and one of them has a hole on it, how cool is that?) walking barefoot trying some shoes I could find in my size.. I’m a size 9 – 9,5 so I was trying shoes with some women, having fun and talking (not really, but they were nice, so whatever). Then I say that Guess G Popstar was on sale.. But the price was way less then the last ‘on sale’ price tag. What? Well, the regular price of the shoes I bought was US$69,00. Then they had a price tag on sale for US$47,00 and I bought them for only US$16,58!
Ok, Renata.. Can you show us the shoes? I am curious!
Ok.. Ok… Don’t worry, here they are.
G by Guess Popstar
G by Guess Popstar sneakers feature a hidden wedge, on-trend studded detail and a cushioned comfort in sole.
- 3.-in. heel
- 0.75-in. platform
- Lace up
They have different colors, there is the white, the black, and this beige-sand color that I fell in love with. I have three black boots, and even though I fell in love with the G by Guess Royse Sneaker, I had to be real with myself. I needed some light color shoes! So I tried the 9,5.. Too big, damn it! Then I saw the 8,5… Too small. Agh! I was so upset because I wanted those shoes! I even asked if they had the 9 in the stock but they didn’t. I searched around the whole shoes aisle for the 9.. Nothing. Well, what could I do? So I tried the Royse Sneaker again and I was sure that I was going to buy that one. But something made me look around the boxes again. And on top of boxes pile, there it was.. Like a miracle, standing there, staring at me.. The unknown (because not even the guy at Belk could explain that, it was not showing in the system!) G by Guess size 9. WHAT? I looked at the sky (ok, at the Belk’s wall, because I was inside the Belk, duh!) and said ‘THANK YOU, GOD! A TRUE MIRACLE’. Ok, A little bit dramatic but come one.. I swear that I had searched everywhere for the 9 and why was it on the top? Maybe someone gave up and returned the box, that’s the only explanation I have. Or maybe miracles do exist! 😉
There I was, walking with my zebra holed socks holding the box like it was the ring of ‘Lord of The Rings’. MY precious! I went to checkout and the guy, excited like me (not really, he was boring and was looking at me like I was crazy) told me ‘oh, ok.’ when I said I had found the right size. Haha!
US$16,58. And I have no clue why I had an extra 10% discount, so.. The sneakers less the 10% plus the taxes.. Basically I paid the US$16,58. The original price was US$69,00 so that was a good damn deal!
You may be thinking that those type os sneakers are not ‘in’ right now, not the right season and blah. But I will tell you guys.. SO WHAT? I love it! I’m not a ‘what-is-in-right-now?’ person, so I buy what I like and what makes me feel like… me.
And these details make the whole difference:
Isn’t it lovely? Isn’t it wonderful? (read it like the song! No.. really.. do this.)
I’m really happy with my purchase and I wish I could by all shoes at Belk. They are getting cheaper and cheaper everytime I go there! And good brands, what makes it even better! 🙂
So, if you can go to a Belk store, I would recommend it. Good prices for great shoes. And you can buy it online as well, they have other great options.
So that’s it for today! I’ll talk to you guys soon, bye!
