Boot Lust - The Letdown & New Lusts

The boots that I talked about here. I had physical cravings for the first boots on the list. They are so beautiful and fun. They are so practical (other than the price). They have a low heel so they are walkable. They are very versatile. They go with EvErYtHiNg! How could a black pair of boots not be?

The second pair of brown boots... almost equally as yummy. Those buckles, the height, the heel, the color... they are everything I am looking for. Something that I can wear on a daily basis for walking or work. Something that I can wear with skirts, dresses, jeans, and dress pants.

I have been jonesing for some new boots. I am trying to be smarter about my purchases, so I have been trying to find some boots that I can hang on to for more than a couple weeks or months.

My problem with those boots. My physical and mental yearning for these boots was slowed GREATLY by them costing $430 and $200+ dollars each.

I don't mind spending some money on my items but I don't think I am ready to stomach spending almost $5o0 dollars on a pair of boots. I don't WANT to spend that much money on them.

Ok.... thanks sis... thanks hubby... My sister found a 30 percent off coupon for the boots with free overnight shipping anddddddd free return shipping.

Really does that make it worth it? Enter hubby.... "If you want them, they can be your Christmas present."

REALLY??? Uh oh! My money minded man said to buy the boots?

So I did. Let me tell you, I had my heart in my throat as I pressed the purchase button.

I couldn't decide which boots so I ordered both... BOTH!.. to return one.

I got the boots and you can see what I think of them... but not quite yet. I have to upload the pictures for you!

A man who knows the importance of shoes and supports your boot habit is a KEEPER!

Oh my goodness, how exciting! I bet it's going to be hard to send one pair back, girl! Your hubby is so sweet...and as already said, certainly a keeper. :)
