I am terrible at math- utterly and completely horrible.
I'll tell you though- I'm VERY good at retail math and some quick figuring led me to purchase my long coveted Dublin River Boots.
I don't typically fall prey to the $900 FB Pony's enabling tactics however a flash sale code on Riding Warehouse coupled with a savvy commenter on the blog took me on a trip over to RW. Not to purchase River Boots, mind you, but to do some work. That's the irony here. Emily is my name, price protection is my game.
But while I was visiting I thought I should check out the Dublins. The commenter mentioned a few select sizes in regular calf and what were the chances really? Oh- just a size 8 left in wide calf? Oh- priced at $129.95 off of a $239 MSRP? Oh- and a 15% discount? Oh- and overnight free shipping? I can't even share the final total because everyone would be just so jealous. Let's just say that I'm not sure I could have come much closer to original wholesale.
I feel as though at this juncture I should mention that Ariat has some FABULOUS Country performance boots coming out this Fall- however none in wide calf just yet- which is why I needed to act quickly to insure my feet stay dry!
What have I learned from this experience? That Riding Warehouse is super quick and accurate (once I placed my order there was no longer to ability the purchase any Wide Calf Dublin's on the product page- SO important for best customer experience) and that no one, I mean no one, is capable of turning a blind eye to an awesome sale! I may have jumped up, squealing, and fist pumped for a moment.
I did tell my husband about these boots rather than sneak them into the boot closet under the cover of darkness. How could I not? I'm actually SAVING money!
