I first spotted these shoes in 2010 as a part of the first Choo 24:7 collection. Choo 24:7 is a collection of Jimmy Choo’s best-selling styles; classic platforms, pointy-toe pumps and round-toe pumps in basic colors like red, black and nude, making them perfect for everyday wear.
Unlike most college kids, I didn’t dream of getting a new car, a job, or a world where $1 drinks existed at every bar. I dreamed of these Jimmy Choo pumps.
Fast forward two years. The date is December 24 and I somehow end up on the Net-a-Porter site, which was having a HUGE sale. Heading right to the shoe section I spotted them. The shoes that have danced in my dreams like sugar plums, for 70% off. If that wasn’t a sign from God that I needed to buy them I don’t know what is.
Immediately my heart rate rose and I couldn’t find my wallet fast enough. I was plagued by fear that if I didn’t purchase them fast enough, they would end up in the closet of some undeserving owner. My pulse didn’t slow until a confirmation email appeared in my inbox.
What’s the lesson in all of this? Patience my friends. And when Jimmy Choo is 70% off, you buy it.
