I'm posting this for my friend Renee who refuses to get a LJ account.

♥Store: Century 21 + eBay
♥Items: VW plaid skirt (Century 21), white sweater (Century 21), and shoes (eBay)
♥Prices: sweater and skirt were $100 each marked down from $300; the shoes were originally priced at $600 brand new, but she scored them (I think she said they were only worn once?) for $300!
♥Purchase date: Century 21 was last October; shoes were a couple months ago
♥Availability: Century 21 sells discounted designer clothing. I'm not sure how much VW stuff they carry, but Renee seems to have done pretty well thus far!

Ooooo... shoes!

Great finds! I love those shoes. I've been looking for a pair like that forever. Do you know what the name of the shoes is?

I just asked her and it's called "The Prostitute". :O

Though I dunno what kind of prostitute would be wearing shoes like that!

WOW. I should show this to Renee because it'll make her feel even better about scoring them for $300. I should ask her where she saw them for $600. You can put the saved $71 towards a frivolous pair of stockings worthy of touching those shoes. Haha.

Yes please do, then I can feel like my previously useless knowledge of these (personally unattainable) shoes can go to someone's benefit. GOOD SCORE!!!!

I feel the same way about the pirate boots and a authentic pair of rocking horse shoes and now I get to add these shoes to the list. le sigh by the time I can afford to buy them it will be really difficult to find a pair. T_T

The fact that these are still in stock at Styledrops gives me hope. It's kind of futile (when am I going to drop $600+ on a pair of shoes?) but it's there... for when I become a member of the Billionaires Club. Woo!

Yea I feel the same way. I really want the pirate shoes with the heel in black but they are sold out on any sites I can find but style drop still has them in brown which is still pretty nice but even though they are on sale $700+ is still more than I could afford to pay for boots for at least the next 5 years. Maybe if I won the lottery but since I don't buy lotto tickets the chances of me winning are zero.
As for the prostitute shoes I just really want a pair of good looking triple strap mary janes. I've been looking for the Jane Marple ones forever and still haven't had any luck.

Emily Temple Cute also makes those... but they always start at least 15,000 yen on auction sites.

However! I have found a pair of triple strap shoes at get this - Forever 21. Chloe made a version of them in flats that F21 then copied a few months ago for $27.80. Also, I saw a pair of them in navy in double-strap show up at ZARA as well. Much much more affordable at $79.99, yeah?
