Until I saw the price, I knew they were not going to be cheap, but I was not expecting them to retail for $495.
I debated a while about splurging on this pair of booties, to the point where I even passed up a $100 rebate from Holts, instead I used that rebate and spent $400 on beauty products. Am I the only one who has to debate spending a large chuck of change on one item, but when it comes to multiple products that accumulate to pretty much the same price, no problem?
I know there are much cheaper look a-likes flooding the market, but to me, it just wasn't the same. The Harrow booties kept lingering in my mind to the point where I was stalking them at Holts hoping they would go on sale. It didn't help that these booties were popping up on several fashion blogs as well. On boxing day I even ditched Lily and ran to Holts to see if they were on sale. No luck, pretty everything but the Rag & Bone shoes were on sale (that email was a lie!).
Then for some odd reason, a couple of weeks after the post holiday sales, I decided to go to Bath&Body works to pick up some hand soap. Yes, you read that correctly, I was attracted to the mall by hand soap. In my defense Bath&Body works was having a sale 10 bottles for $25. As we were leaving for some strange reason I decided to stop by Aritzia, I usually never shop at Aritzia,it really isn't my style. But it must have been faith because I spotted the Rag & Bone Kinsey booties, which eventually lead me to the Harrow booties.
I initially wanted the Harrow booties in black, but when I tried them on they were kinda of blah on me, plus the black pair were much more expensive. The black ones were only discounted about 20%, where as the camel ones were discounted by 40%.

Yes,GUILTY, I purchased both the Kinsey and Harrow Rag & Bone Booities. The Kinsey ones were 60% off, it was practically 2 for the price 1!!! I spotted the new colors of these booties being released for the spring at Holts and the prices have been inflated by $100 each!
