Deal of the week: Straw wedge shoe from Macy's

Deal seekers, I present to you my deal of the week. Behold.

Shoe steal 

Yes, that's a shoe on my messy desk. And yes, that's a Dolly Parton mousepad. I tried to take a picture of the shoe on my foot, but I kept getting a cankle angle.

I snagged these Alfani straw platforms at the Countryside Macy's Sunday. I desperately needed to replace my old black straw platforms, dead after two years of non-stop summer wear. The fabric had ripped from the sole in agony. Not pretty. I loved these right away. They were comfortable, and they appealed to my inner pigeon with the shiny snakeskin print and bonus Bedazzling around the toe.

They were originally $69, marked to $45 on a Macy's summer shoe sale. But that's not all! I had a friends and family coupon my mom scored from someone at work that equaled another 25 percent off. BUT THERE'S MORE! This was the last pair in my size, and it was the sample shoe. The clerk didn't offer an extra discount, but I shot him a wink and asked if I could get one since they were the display model. Who knows how many yahoos had their toes in them, you know? So he gave me an extra 10 percent!

Grand total was $30, a savings of more than half. And that, Deal Diva Devotees, is a pretty good score.

Get anything good this weekend? Do share your victory.
