My Clarks arrived yesterday and I am happy with my purchase. I had some reservations about them before they arrived as I read the reviews from the website I ordered from and everyone seemed to have a sizing issue, and having to order a size down. I ordered my normal size and was afraid I would have to return for a smaller pair. Fortunately for me, they fit just fine. I have small feet for my size, but my feet are wide, so it worked out just fine with the way Clarks fit. I put them on and forgot how comfortable they are and how quiet they are to walk around in. I would post a pic, but I think I already have posted one earlier. Went for the dark brown instead of the original sand color for personal reasons. I think I'll wear them out today :)

Consolation prize

Well, I received an email from CK with a $15 coupon to print out and decided to go up to the outlet to see if I could find something to use it on. I don't know why, but when ever I get one of these things I try to have the total purchase be as close to the coupon value as I can, something about free stuff always just sounds better. Unfortunately, there was nothing in Calvin Klein that I liked at all. I was never fond of their clothes, other than their ties and briefs, and even then I could buy that cheaper from elsewhere than the actual store. I thought about getting a new tie, but wasn't really feeling it. After a little bit of looking, I decided to just text Rachel and ask if she needed anything as it would probably be best used for her. On the way home (and feeling a bit unsatisfied) I decided to stop off at the Macy's that is closing by my home, it's been pretty picked through but I thought I would see if they had marked down their pocket squares anymore. After searching, I found the ten or so that were left and found one lilac square in the midst. It was on sale (like everything else) and then price was right, so I bought it.I really like the shade and wish I had a few more items to go with it. But I guess it's just a matter of time.


A couple of new jewelry items to post. Picked up a cheap ID bracelet recently as I had been wanting one for a while, but didn't want to shell out big bucks to find out that I don't like things on my wrist. So I am trying it out and getting used to it. Also, while at my friend Bills, he had some eBay overage he didn't want and offered up a few to me. I picked through came away with these. I am not terribly fond of gold, but I guess I need a pair for some unforeseen reason that may crop up. I am watching a few sets at the moment, so if I win, I may be posting more.

Perk of going back to school

As some of you may or may not know, I decided to return to college and obtain a degree in Computer Science. During the course of buying overly priced school books, I noticed that Amazon has a special programs for "college students". Simple process of signing up and you get good discounts. You also receive updates and email alerts for any specials that might have, which brings us to today's post. I have been wanting another pair of Clark's desert boots ever since I wore out my last, and via this program I got a pair for 40% off the cheapest price I found online, plus free two day shipping. Quite pleased! I'll be posting Friday wen they arrive ;)

UPDATE!  Due to the freakish snow store that decided to hit Austin the very day I was to expect my shoes, the delivery date has been moved to monday they 7th. Will post as they arrive.
