I finally bought a pair of flats I've been coveting since FOREVER! They retail for about AUD 610 in Australia (rip-off!) but in the US it only costs USD 440. Can you guess what they are? Hint: Patent leather, with a pretty trademark bow design on the front!
You can do better....
Salvatore Ferragamo Varina flats in black patent leather.
And you know what the best part was? I got them on SALE! Wheeeee! So happy *jumps up and down. I initially wanted a pair that was nude instead of black, but unless I magically expand my feet to size 9.5 I don't think it's a good idea getting shoes that will look like small boats on my feet. :\
The flats + shipping from the US cost me less than AUD 400. How awesome is that? :D
Now I just can't wait for them to arrive hehehe.
