Marni Leather and Suede Platform Brogues, $665
TPFC Item: Dr. Marten 3989 Brogues in Gold,
For today’s TPFC item I bring you (drum rolls)… Dr. Martens gold brogues! No, I didn’t type the prices wrong. The Marni brogues sold for $665 and the Doc Martens for $130. But wait, I’m not done bragging yet – I purchased them on sale for $59.99 and did price adjustment on a day Urban Outfitters had 50% off clearance; which came to the grand total of $29.99!!
Can’t tell the difference? Neither could I, the twinsie level is at 90% if you ask me. I only came to the knowledge of the difference of the material (Marni’s is leather + suede thus the steep price) upon reading the description. But for those of you who own Dr. Martens, they’re sturdy and durable.
Today’s lesson – due diligence on your purchases kids! Many places are friendly about price adjustments (and if not just practice a little whining). Your work will be paid off. Or paid back to your ever increasing credit debt.
