I've never owned a pair of designer shoes.  It's not a big deal.  There are plenty of people in the world who have never owned a pair of shoes, period.  I haven't been sad about the fact that I've never dropped more than $50 on a pair of shoes.  Actually, I'm quite proud of my thriftiness.  Which brings me to my next point; I now own a pair of designer shoes...and I paid $3.00 for them :)

Last Tuesday I spent a day at the beach all by myself.  It was absolutely wonderful.  The relaxing day that I needed.  After leaving the beach I stopped at a thrift store in Costa Mesa because, well, that's what I do.  I saw I sign stating that all shoes were $4.00.  I saw an adorable pair of flats that were in great condition.  I could tell they were real leather and very well constructed so I tried them on and they fit perfectly.  I took them up to the cash register to learn that they were actually $3.00!  (This story just keeps getting better, right???)

When I got them home I looked inside the shoe and saw this logo:

Looked pretty fancy.  I'd never heard of Sigerson Morrison before (I really don't know many designers) so I decided to google the company.  What do you know?  They're a big deal!  I couldn't find a pair of Sigerson Morrison shoes for less than $150.00.  Now I'm even more excited about the fruit of my solo beach day.

I want to go thrift store shopping in Costa Mesa all the time now!  I can only imagine what other treasures Orange County people will get tired of and donate to the local charity so I can spend 5% of what they did originally.
