Patience is a virtue in online sales!14:18:00
This was very relevant to me recently. I was doing a bit of online shopping on River Island, which is continuing its sale since boxing day online and in store. I came across these boots I really liked but I was a bit unsure about them. I hate buying shoes in particular on the web. My feet are the part of my body I am the most self conscious about and I feel I always need to try on shoes before committing to purchase them. However there was something about these shoes I liked and wanted. They had a bit of a heel on them which is appealing when you are below average in height and could do with a boost every now and again. At the same time they aren't the type of high shoes that are hard to walk in. I also just liked the appearance of them and have always in my mind wanted a black pair of boots.
I messaged my friend on Facebook and asked her what she thought of them. She seemed to agree that they suited my style and that they were cool! Also on sale for 24 euro for a pair of ankle boots is a total bargain!
I withheld from buying them that night and waited until the very next day to see how I felt about them. I also found a cute dress I liked and decided to order them together. This is when I noticed that the price of the shoes had fallen again! By another 10 euro making them 14 euro. I was kind of in shock!
This is probably coming across as an extremely random post. My point is that you shouldn't go crazy just because something is on sale. Prices can drop again and be even better value than they were. As a student I love to get bargains. As I am a bit wary of buying shoes especially online I am slightly reluctant to be paying out large sums of money for them. I think paying 14 euro for shoes that were originally 50 is unbelievable. If you're unsure about an item you want to buy, I'd advise waiting to see if you really want to purchase it. Factors like price can really change your mind about these things.
What have you guys been purchasing in the sales?
I would love to know. :)
Also what do you think of the shoes!!!
I'll see you pretty soon!
