It was one of those rare occasions when I went looking for something specific and emerged victorious, purchasing exactly what I wanted and nothing else. Round toed, good leather, flat boots that fit perfectly. I've been wearing them at least 3 out of 4 days since I found them.
They were originally $268 at Anthro, marked down to $150 and I got the additional 25% post Christmas discount, so they were $112. But honestly, they would have been worth it at the original price, for the wear I plan to get out of them. Which I think should be a good rule of thumb for me - don't buy something on sale if you wouldn't buy it at full price.
