Boots on sale at Victoria's Secret. Who says it's too early for suede?
The folks buying sweatshirts at USF last week obviously had their minds on cooler weather, so why can't we? Buying fall clothes in the off season is a good way to save some money, and cute autumn items are starting to rear their, uh, feet. In that spirit, Victoria's Secret is offering 20 percent off boots online when you enter the promo code VSBOOT at checkout through Sept. 16. After a quick browse through the selections, it looks like Uggs are the main exclusion from the deal, which we are fine with, because UGGS LOOK LIKE THEY SOUND.
Me? I've got my eye on these Colin Stuart suede chain booties. I die for them a thousand times, especially in pink.
At $70, though, they're still pretty rich for my blood. And I'm not sure I'd have the patience to wait for fall. Then again... SO CUTE. They're like old school 1990s Versace. You could put the hurtin' on someone with that spike. Fierce. Life is hard like this.
Like a good Deal Diva, I looked for an alternative. Charlotte Russe has some slightly comparable booties for $30, and they're buy a pair, get one half off. Score! That said, I'm kind of mad at Ms. Russe right now, because when I went to the store website, it blared a horrifying teen pop song in my face (clue #146 you have officially gotten old -- kids, get off my lawn!). Anyway, what of the shoe?
I'm really missing the hardware element here, and to me, the folded collar is screaming "YOU CAN FLY, YOU CAN FLY, YOU CAN FLYYY!" I think I need more time and/or pixie dust. Good thing it's still 8 billion degrees out.
