I acquired my beloved black Frye Lisa boots three years ago and seriously from that day forward I have kicked myself for not getting them in brown. Do you KNOW how hard it is to find brown boots? Apparently it is the freaking fashion holy grail.
And so, for three obsessive years, I have had an eBay alert for these boots. And in that time, they have come up three times in my size (or within a half size because I was desperate). The first time, they were in rough shape and sold for $50 more than I was willing to pay. The second time, they sold for more money than I had budgeted and I was outbid. But the third time is the charm and they are MINE.
And they are glorious. In perfect shape and they actually fit better than my black ones. Tell me, do you have something you've been stalking for years? Make me feel less crazy. Or, you know, don't. I have my boots to keep me company.
