Small Price to Pay

Marni Leather and Suede Platform Brogues, $665

TPFC Item: Dr. Marten 3989 Brogues in Gold, $130 $29.99

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.

About Too Poor for Couture

A girl who loves fashion enough to slave away in the industry. For fun, for hobby, for inspiration, but definitely not for money (unfortunately). I don't study fashion like it's the bible nor do I know everything about it. Fashion should be fun, expressive, and effortless. Too Poor for Couture is my chronicle of fashion related thoughts, news, outfits, and randoms of a normal girl on a normal budget working un-glamorously through the fashion industry.
