Don’t you feel like just last year we invested in new boots? Like we bought the Frye’s then we bought the booties, then we bought the over-the-knee black boots. And now there is another style that the catalogs are screaming that we have to get? Seriously?
I felt like last year was all about the over-the-knee black boot. I bought some, well, because of course they were going to last me the rest of my life. The year before was booties, which thankfully seem to have stuck around for a few years because I purchased beige and black. Before that it was Frye everything! (My Melissa boot is currently collecting dust in my closet.) And somewhere in there I decided short Frye cowgirl boots would look cute with dresses. Those are still in a box. This year, I keep seeing over the knee BROWN boots. Really?
I was so annoyed and frankly sick of spending money on the next style of boot. They are expensive and what about the ones that I bought the last four years? Ugg.
But then the Nordstrom 40% Fall Sale came around and I just had to look. And I just had to see that there were some on sale. Stuart Weitzman would be my dream boot every time, but I was not going to spend $500 this season. No, no no. I did that with the black pair and Gigi Hadid can only hypnotize me once. We also know that the cheap-o ones look, well, cheap and never fit well. I’ve been down that road. So, I looked to a brand that I have actually had some luck with, Vince Camuto. You’ll recognize the logo.
I saw some over the knee brown boots, on sale they were $118. Original price is $197 and sizes are going fast. I tried them on just this morning with jeans and actually really like them for this time of year. Again, I think I would have only spent around this price for more boots. But, with sweaters, jeans and these I think I could wear them many places. Here’s what they look like on:
There is a little chunk heel and cute stitching on the back with side zipper. Super easy to get on.
So, for the price I’m keeping then. After all next fall there will be another trend. Boo.
