Boots for Fall: Splurge Vs. Steal

16 Oct

Hey Guys!

Here is a blog I did for Flurtsite.com

 

The Ankle Boot

Ankle boots are a mainstay in our Fall wardrobe. They transition any outfit and are perfect paired with jeans and a blazer. For those of you who are looking for an edgier look, try pairing these with a form-fitting dress. If you know that you will use this as a staple piece in your wardrobe, and youÆre ready to take the plunge and shell some serious moolah, here are a pair of Alexander Mcqueens for $1120. If you are in need of a steal, Macy’s has similar ones by Chinese Laundry for $89.

The Knee High Wedge Boot

The knee high boot is a classic boot that has been around for many seasons. Just recently though, designers have gone from a stiletto to a more realistic wedge. This change has given us high-heel conscious girls more confidence to walk around for hours without the fear of falling over. It also gives our feet some much needed comfort for all hazardous weather conditions. It can be paired with a skirt for a comfortable fall look, or with jeans to add some style. When it comes to a splurge, here is pair from the famous Christian Louboutin for a whopping price of $1895. If you want a similar style without having to break the bank, here is a pair from DSW for just $79.95.

The Riding Boot

Riding boots are no longer just for people who ride or own horses, they have made there way on the catwalk and have made a splash. These boots are perfect paired with leggings, a chambray shirt and a colorful scarf. For a more conservative look, you can switch out the leggings for a pair of dark-colored denim. If you want to splurge on this style, check out these Salvadore Ferragamos for $795. To steal this look for less, check out DSW for these Bandolinos priced at $99.

TheMotorcycle Boot

The motorcycle boot is all the rage this season. They are the perfect ending to a skinny jean whether the jeans are colored, tuxedo, coated or just a basic jean. They compliment feminine florals and softer knits perfectly and complete a bad girl look when paired with a leather jacket. These boots are the perfect amount of drama and edge without going overboard. If you have the extra money to spend, look into these Ash boots from Asos for $543. If a steal is what you are looking for, Kohls is selling these Rock and Republic boots for $58.

Wine Colored Denim

12 Oct

Hey Guys!

I’m sure you guys have noticed that wine colored denim is all the rage this fall. While on a recent trip to the mall, I happened to walk into a Hollister and found these for an extremely reasonal price. I decided to pair them with a simple chiffon polka dot top that I got from Forever21. This top complimented these jewel toned denim perfectly. To complete the look I paired it with some classic black platform heels.
