Well, my austerity program isn't working out quite how I'd planned. I blame Style Spy; thanks to this reminder from her I stopped by the local Cole Haan store on Saturday just to peruse the sale items and report back. These boots called me over from across the room, winked and asked "Where have we been all your life, Gorgeous?"
Sure, they look fabulous. Sure they were marked down from the original price by almost 50%. But once I put them on I had to buy them...they are so comfortable (thanks to a nice arch support and Nike air soles) I may never take them off!!!
