Orange You Glad?

I am always on the hunt for that most elusive of items – an inexpensive pair of shoes that doesn’t look cheap.

There’s a reason why most of the affordable ones are priced so low. The stitching looks bad, or the material is stiff and hard to wear (especially for a wide footed lady like myself).

Aah, but these – finding these beauties was like hitting the jackpot.

While perusing the Target clearance racks in search of deals on shoes for the kiddos, I stumbled by happy accident upon these orange gems, nestled in among the toddler sandals. It was as if they were waiting there just for me.

And when I checked the price tag (a mere $14.98 plus an additional 5% off for shopping with my red card, of course!), I swear those fluorescent lights shined a little brighter, and somewhere in the distance a Hallelujah chorus began to play (though that could’ve been me singing, I was so full of glee).

My new shoes even passed the Jane Lantz quality test – and that, my friends, is an incredible feat in and of itself.

  • I never seem to have any trouble talking. My kids actually get quite annoyed with me, because if I ever run into someone we know, or I have to run something over to a friend’s house, etc. I talk and talk and can’t stop myself. But sometimes I sit down to write a blog post,… [Continue Reading]

  1. Those sandals are so cute! And only $14.98??? Lucky duck. I might have to go searching my Target today!

  2. Those are so cute! I just found two cute pairs of sandals at Target last week and had a buy one, get one 50% coupon, so I had to bring them both home with me! I think Target has nice affordable shoes.

  3. I love those sandals! We don’t have Target here…yet. Apparently, it’s coming. But I definitely stock up in the U.S. in general on shoes :: deals are ridiculously better than here….especially with the extra “x” percent off sales that often run.
