As I begin to accept that I am now the mother of a school-aged child, I decided to start having some fun with it... and by having fun with it I mean start shopping. Athena is quite particular when it comes to her back-to-school attire and she is voicing her demands. She has adorable little uniforms to wear and all that's missing is the perfect shoe. She has stated that she requires fancy school shoes, casual school shoes, school gym shoes, and boots for when it's raining. She's the boss so we're off to Famous Footwear to help navigate all the choices. You guys, I'm dying over their selection. They have my FAVORITE brands (Steve Madden) and some of the new styles I've been dying to try. Thankfully they are offering a BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon to make this trip a little easier on the bank account.
She would like some black ballet flats to go with her blue uniform:
Some cute brown ones to go with her khakis:
Some tennis shoes for gym:
And some fancy boots for dealing with the elements:
(Yeah, they totally sparkle.)
We immediately signed up for the free Rewards Program so we can start reaping the benefits. Right off the bat the BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon becomes a 20% off coupon. We get first dibs on new arrivals and deals, earn 1 point for ever $1 we spend accumulating up to $100 certificates a year, and got a coupon for $5 off our next purchase of $25 or more just for signing up. Maybe mama needs to get two pairs of shoes...
The other day I just said that I wanted a pair of these designer inspired babies:
You can print the coupon and use it any time between now and 8/18/2012. Go on. Get yourself a little something. The kids need it and mama deserves it.
