Last week we finally experienced a taste of fall. And by a taste I mean, a teeny, tiny, Top-Chef sized amuse bouche that lasted all of 2 days. However, I intended to take full advantage of the crisp weather thinking that maybe if I dressed for fall, it will come.
Remember that deal of a century I posted about? Well here they are...! I spotted these gorgeous Etienne Aigner boots while my mom & I were browsing DSW. Riding boots have been on my wish list for a long time. I wanted to invest in a good pair (i.e. drop some coin) but so far nothing was tugging on my heart strings. Until these caught my eye - in the clearance section no less. I zipped them up, looked in the mirror and it was love at first sight.
I noticed that the top part of the logo flap on each boot was missing a stud, marking these boots as "damaged". Meaning they were 80% off the already marked down price of $129 (retail price was $189) Meaning I got these boots for $25.80. Oh & did I mention I had a gift card so I technically spent $0 at the store? Did I also mention that my Shoe Guy only charged me 10 whole dollars to attach an almost identically colored stud to either side? I think it's pretty safe to say this was the best $10 I ever spent. Told you they were the deal of the century!
Now if only the SoCal temps could stay below 80 degrees so I can enjoy these babies.... If I dress for it... will it come?
