So, I have to tell you. I ordered the boots from amazon, trying to save my $11, and I was so excited to get them today. I must’ve checked the tracking at least 10 times. (Turns out I was able to hear the truck when it pulled up anyway.) I kept wishing that I had spent the extra $3.99 to get them yesterday, even! And I opened the box… and they were totally not the same. The color was dark and muddy. You could barely tell that they were even purple! I tried looking at them in all the different lights in the apartment. Nope! (Don’t worry, I made sure return shipping was free before I ordered them!)
So I called up the Dr. Marten store downtown to make sure they still had them, and they did, so I headed on over.
Yes! These were the boots in all their glorious color. There is just no sense in spending all that money and not getting the right ones. I wore them home. Someone on the street even said “Nice docs” as they passed by, because they really are that nice. Also, super comfortable for navigating these ridiculously steep streets in Seattle. There is a reason that those grunge bands were wearing them here in the 90s! 🙂
So moral of the story is, sometimes you get what you pay for. I do almost all of my shopping online A. Because I don’t enjoy going “shopping” and B. because often times you can get the exact same thing, cheaper. But not in this case. That’s okay though. We’re going to have a long, happy life together!
