woot woot! my hunter wellies from gilt arrived this week! i have been needing a pair of rubber boots, as i am very fond of tromping (really, i am like an elephant) in general and extra fond of tromping in rain, and wanted to snag a pair of hunters for some time now. however, like most things, hunters run on a higher price tag and naturally, without setting aside money every month they were going to be merely a dream of mine.
enter gilt.com. i have been a member for sometime now thanks to a dear friend, l. and yes, while the site boasts large %'s off of its gear, there was never anything that i could bring myself to buy, even at the discounted price. this was until a month or so ago when hunter wellies arrived in my inbox. of course by the time i got to them, they had long sold out and i was put on a waitlist. alas, they became available and i had 9 minutes (not an exaggeration) to buy them if i still had a hankerin' (hankerin': such an undeniable need for something that one reverts to backwoods expressions) for them. hankerin' abounding, i got em! and they arrived monday morning to a very delighted me and a less-than-enthused ups man. if he only knew!
now if i could just get some rain so that the tromping may commence...
where they shall live until the overused sandals and flats are no longer appropriate due to weather
