Just a little birthday gift to myself

I've wanted a pair of Hunter Wellies for, well, a really long time now. But I also had a really hard time justifying the $125+ price tag for rubber boots. Leather is one thing, but rubber? Recently, I found this great site called Budget Babe where the blogger posts all about fashion and how/where to find it for less. From this site, I learned about the Gilt Groupe. This site offers new designer items everyday at discount prices. I think I saw one website describe it as an online trunk show for everyone. All you do is sign up and then you can have access to all the wonderful pretties that are on sale.

So, I signed up too late to get in on the Hunter Wellies that they had on sale the first time. So, I put them on my waitlist hoping that they would become available sometime. And they did!! There is a private sale going on right now that seems to be just for people who have them on their waitlist. I snatched up a pair of these in olive since I think it is a good neutral color–goes with black or brown in addition to all the other colors. They were only $58 plus shipping! OMG! That's like more than half price off. I figured that's a great little birthday gift to myself.

Go check out Gilt Groupe to see what other fun things are on sale.

$58 is a great price – and honestly, rubber boots will probably hold up better than leather and you can wear them forever. They remind me of a boot you’d wear to wander the Scottish highlands or something. Good find!

I love making a score like that. Fab boots, BTW.
