Lovely Lady Toms At A Lovely Price

Now, most of you ladies out there probably will agree that I’m late on the band wagon with this one. The Toms band wagon, that is. Better late than never, I say! I love shoes. I have always loved shoes. Much to my sweet, Puerto Rican husband’s dismay I really don’t wear heels anymore. The only exception, however, is wedges. So I wear a lot of flats and sandals.

I first discovered Toms in a most random of places {Las Vegas} when I was shopping with my parents. A store had some Toms on sale. I hardly ever pass up a good sale, so I purchased my first pair of Toms probably a good 5 years ago would be my guess. Not only do I love how they look and the comfort level, but I also love the “buy a pair of shoes and they give a pair of shoes to a child in need” thing. That little tug on the heart strings can help justify paying the $48-$100 or so for the pair of shoes, in my opinion. Disclaimer: Seriously, please don’t get me wrong! I love a good cause and opportunities to help people and provide for needs and to ministries.

Now, to get back on track. Oh yes! So, I’m sure you guessed what’s coming next: TJ Maxx happened. I just discovered a pair of Toms at TJ Max within the last 6-8 months or so, a super cute pink and white pair. Needless to say I was thrilled to see the price: $29.99! Yes, you read that right, $29.99 for a pair of {authentic} Toms. And I honestly thought that was going to be a one time treasure find, until a couple of weeks ago.

Lately, I’ve been embracing nautical accents in my apparel such as my anchor Bella Jack necklace here. So I got excited about this pair of women’s university stripe slip-ons in red for $29.99. They add a little extra summer, nautical touch to my outfits!

Here are price comparable’s from other sources on this same pair of Toms:

With Ebay, I noticed the prices definitely vary for whatever reason, but I picked the most consistent price for the size shoe I purchased. Based on these prices compared to the price I paid, $29.99 . . . I my savings range between 40%-45% for a pair of Toms I purchased from TJ Maxx. Not too shabby if I do say so myself!

Have any of you been able to find Toms on your TJX store shopping escapades? As always, happy shopping!
