thursday tales [the report ackley boot]

report ackley boot

ah, the elusive report ackley boot. i first pinned them 5 months ago from zappos but they have since sold out there, and at lulu's. also amazon [and that wasn't even in my size]. and all those sites had them priced at $100+.

but now that they were sold out on all the reasonable sites i would buy from, i was ready to let them go UNTIL i was perusing the shelves at the king of prussia nordstrom rack before the girls night out event when lo-and-behold, my coveted ackleys were just hanging out on the size 7.5 shelf! and were priced at $49.95! 

i quickly grabbed the one shoe they leave on the shelf and waiting patiently for it's mate at the shoe station before heading over to the registers. 

so happy was i with my find that i wanted to wear them to the girls night out event that night, but tragedy struck when i realized they gave me one size 7.5 and one size 8 [i know you feel my pain here]! 

while my immediate satisfaction was derailed, the lovely folks at the 'rack quickly gave me my other size 7.5 when i stopped by later that night.

and me and my ackleys lived happily ever after.

the end!

p.s. the moral of the story is that the report ackley boots are on sale at nordstrom rack for over 1/2 off what they would have cost 5 months ago


  1. Woohoo!!!! So glad you finally got your shoes (and the right size). All good things are worth waiting for, right?! Now I want to see them on you!

  2. Congrats! Sometimes it does pay to wait, if you have shopping karma and obviously you do. I love those boots. Now, I know I'll never find them in my size (6.5) but I am going to call my local Nordstrom just in case. I live in MA where it's cold and snowy, and my signif other is always yelling at me for wearing heels in bad weather. The chunky heel (and the great look) would be just the thing!

  3. I keep hearing great things about the King of Prussia mall, I haven't checked it out yet. The Nordstrom rack will be my first stop! You got a great deal on those cuties!


leave me a little note!
