By now, most of you have gotten to know TBS's crew of friends and surely you remember the oh-so-darling Katie T. Complete opposites in more than the obvious ways, we have just as much in common. She is one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet, a trustworthy confidante and LOVES shopping (yay!).
On Tuesday evening, I was in Tar-zhay (to pick up vitamins and vitamins ONLY) and came upon a line of bejeweled sandals by 'Miss Trish of Capri'. It broke my heart that the inventory was nearly depleted. I was further crestfallen when I realized that of the 'road kill' there was nothing over a size 8 (and your dear TBS is an 11 aka 'the box'). I made mental notes to 1) check online for my size and 2) tell Katie T.
Well...I did and I did. Within 5 minutes of telling her, we were on our way to Tar-zhay during our lunch hour. Katie T got the gold Lion Sandals and I ordered the brown Turtle Sandals. And boy were we proud of our be-crittered shoes. And what a steal for $30 and some change! A fan of Lilly Pulitzer, Katie pulled up their site when we returned and we were thrilled to find that our Tar-zhay sandals were nearly dead ringers (except for different critters, of course) at a fraction of the cost.
InStyle magazine featured these sandals recently and they're flying off Target's shelves. If you go to Ebay, the demand is so high, they're being sold for nearly twice face value...wow!
And yes...I am a sandal whore. I've been exposed.
