Boot Season Begins at Payless

To bring in this wonderful Boot Season, let’s see what else Payless has.

Let’s start with a boot I almost bought today. If I hadn’t found a similar pair at Charlotte Russe just a few weeks earlier, these would have been mine tonight!

Women’s Zippy Riding Boot

These are so so so cute. I absolutely love these, and think everybody else needs to love these too. Love the peep-toe, love the cut-outs, love the blue. Also available in Berry, Split-Pea, and Black, but I really think Sapphire is the way to go.

FAV!

I’m Back!

After all these months… I’m back!!!

Even with as busy as I’ve been, I just couldn’t walk away from this blog. I find that people are still asking me about the best deals on shoes and where to find them, so I have to keep this updated for everyone to see!

And besides, this just gives me an added excuse to buy more shoes! (for rating purposes, of course) 😉

So, time to get back into the deals!

As you know, it’s October, which means… BOOT SEASON! In my opinion, boots and jackets are really the only good thing about the cold weather.

I actually just picked up these babies from Payless:

Women’s Riley Tall Slouch Boot

Lower East Side

$39.99 ON SALE FOR $29.99

Every girl needs a good slouch boot, and for $29.99, you really can’t beat it! I’ve only worn them for a little bit so far, but they seem super comfortable. I’ll be sure to report back with more info once I’ve broken them in!

Still Waiting on Christian Siriano for Payless…

Well Payless.com has FINALLY got SOMETHING on their website from Christian Siriano. But, it’s not much 😦

I really want the blue pumps!!!

And is it weird that I like the pumps with the spikes?

I guess we’ll just have to keep waiting…

A History of Thigh High Boots

I found this great little slideshow on a history of thigh high boots on The Cut: New York Magazine’s Fashion Blog, and I just had to share it. It’s really great!

Anne Hathaway in her full length Chanel boots in The Devil Wears Prada, 2006

–Can I just interject by saying how much I love this movie!?!! I have watched The Devil Wears Prada a countless amount of times and it really never gets old. I guess I can relate to it a bit too, the whole transformation into the world of fashion, wanting to work for a magazine bit…sigh…and this movie really made me love Anne Hathaway too. Shes really a fantastic actress…anyway, back to the list!

Do you like the thigh high boot trend? Which are your favorite? I really love Anne Hathaway’s full length Chanel boots. What about you?

Something to Look Forward to this Coming Fall…

I found this great collage on fashiontribes.com depicting the color combinations and how they will be used for this coming fall. These colors are chosen by Pantone based on what seems to have the most direction for the coming season. For fall 09 they seem to have been inspired by very rich earth tones and painterly schemes for some great combinations. This season will definitely not have the typical tones you see in autumn, as there are some great color pops, including some major pinks (fuchsia, coral, and Barbie inspired) and a great lime green!
