I'm not completely sure how or when I found you, but it was definitely through facebook. It may have been when you had the giveaway for a pair of Old Navy jeans.

I think I found you through your column "spot the steal", when I was searching for more affordable shoes that were similar to designers'. Or something like that. It's been over a year so I don't remember so well.
