Now that its officially getting colder, I’ve been on a crazy boot hunt lately. Searching through pages and pages of ebay, Zara, Steve madden, Nine West, UO, and all the other ‘affordable’ stores. There are so many options this fall, the tall flat boots (a la Rachel Bilson), the granny lace up boots and socks with cut out heels (a la Pandora/Louise and her friend), motorcycle boots, and the lace up boots with heels (a la Taylor Momsen on the set of Gossip girl, btw, isn’t her outfit so Balmain f/w?), and on a budget, you can’t have all of them. You can play with the lengths too, this season, there are mid calf, knee high, angle length boots, ohhh the decisions. What it really comes down to though is, functionality and what looks good on you..and your budget. Wear what you love.
Some great choices I’ve been eyeing are UO’s Leather lace up boots ($128), Frye Enginner Boot ($188), Nine West Gwen boots ($70), Nine West Cuzza ($110) as seen on Taylor. Zara also has great options for tall flat boots, so check those out too! I’ve also been eyeing a bunch of ebay listings: one of them being this gorgeous chocolate brown soft granny lace up boot, and another one of them being these incredible vintage red western style lace ups; also been browsing through Victorias secret too (strange huh??)..anddd the ebay shopping addiction continues.
Great boots can pull your entire look together and make you feel perfect. Look good, feel good.
Good luck hunting all ! (:
