A bargain to boot!
At the mall this weekend, my sister and I spotted/ stalked this super stylish girl wearing cuffed jeans, a belted cardigan over a T-shirt and these amazing, sturdy boots. These boots were serious -- like a sleeker version of the bulky Doc Martins we had to wear at my all-girls', Catholic high school crossed with something out of Wyatt Earp's closet.
I would have never picked them off a shelf, but this girl's outfit made me reconsider. I wanted to snap a picture of her, but I figured our stares were creepy enough.
Sis and I stopped into a couple stores looking for something similar and struck gold at Nine West.
Though our muse wore a lace-up version, these were close enough. The only problem? Duh. The price tag.
The saleswoman scurried over, smiling and congratulating us because "They're 30 percent off!"
Now we were talking $75. Thanks, but not good enough. We moseyed on, tried a few more but left the mall empty handed.
BUT WAIT. No shopping day is complete without an obligatory swing through Tar-jay. And sure enough, mama Target delivered.
I found these at the end of the last aisle, with ONE pair in my size. And guess how much.
Now the challenge is pairing these babies with more feminine items, like our style obsession did at the mall. I'm thinking skinny cords with a loose blouse. Or maybe a dress with tights. Any ideas?
