As I cruised this weekend’s Labor Day sales I ran across the famous Dicker boots by (bow down now) French designer Isabel Marant.
These special boots (soft, pretty, versatile, good heel height) have been worn by most card carrying fashionistas, seen only in the dreams of many divorced mothers of two.
The reason for not owning a pair of Dickers?
The price tag, of course.
At $300.00 per foot, s…s….six hundred a pair, Dickers were meant for girls with money to spare, at least in the shoe budgeting department.
Imagine my glee, then, to find loads of Dickers at La Garconne, marked down to $420.00 plus an extra 20% off with the code, LABOR90213.
That’s $168.00 per foot. A bargain if you’ve had months of Dickers, not sugar plums, dancing in your head.
As if that wasn’t good enough, the red pair, which my friend Joanna reminded me would look amazing with black and grey, were marked to $150.00 per foot. Plus the 20% 0ff, we’re talking two hundred sixty buckaroos! One hundred twenty, if we’re counting in feet that come with toes.
In school, I was never any good at math.
Had they taught in bags and shoes, though, I imagine I’d have been at the top of my class, rocking some pretty cool boots with my Catholic, school-issued uniform.
Do you have Dickers? Would you wear the red?
