A ticking clock really is the genius behind sites like Gilt (I guess it doesn’t take a genius to point that out, huh). But seriously, when there’s the mounting pressure of an imminent sell-out, you just buy. When a designer makes something consistently, no matter how much I love it, I sometimes can’t get to the purchase point, and instead just visit it daily. I have NO CLUE what that’s about. Does it happen to any of you? Case in point: I’ve been obsessed with these Beatrice Valenzuela booties since we wrote about her on Beso (check out her inspiring Top 10 list here), but I have yet to buy a pair. What’s stopping me? Know what wouldn’t stop me? Having a child, and then force-marching them around the house in these adorable blue moccasins. So. Wildly. Cute. Clearly, I need to just buy them. Or Beatrice needs to make them all limited-edition with a site like Of a Kind to get weirdos like me to pull the trigger.
