SALES ALERTS - UPDATED FOR HOLIDAY SAVINGS!
I’m still recovering from Mara’s Fantasy Shop-a-thon, so many gorgeous things! But now I’m back to reality, autumn, weather. I’m looking for great boots that can elevate my outfits this fall and make me feel happy, confident and super stylish, but above all, comfortable.
1. ROCK STAR BOOTS: Rag & Bone makes the best boots and these leopard-studded Westins ($280 off at Neiman Marcus) are a terrific rock & roll take on a classic Chelsea boot. Dolce Vita (30% off at Zappos) does a nice interpretation of this rocker style, a little quieter, more versatile and more affordable. While these Frye Sacha moto boots don’t have all the embellishments, they do have dual metal zippers and a super cool black metallic leather finish. (Do you remember how much you loved your first Frye boots?).
2. URBAN COWBOY: Golden Goose takes the western look to the next level with these metallic boots. It seems like they would get better and better over the years and justify the investment. There’s also lots of snake skin this season - like Dolce Vita’s Coltlyns (and a nice mule version). And, of course the gorgeous Chloe Rylee snakeskin embossed boots with a chunky stacked heel (now 40% off at Nordstrom).
I’ve been on the look-out for a white boot that won’t show too much dirt and these might be the holy grail - distressed leather Frye boots (33% off at Zappos).
6. FAVORITES: My BFF Shannon and I bought these nice looking and ultra comfortable walk-for-miles Gabriella suede ankle boots (save 56% off of retail) and have been wearing them non-stop - she in SF, me in NYC. We both have blue suede, because of course, but it comes in black and burgundy as well. My bestie Shauna in Golden, CO raves about the Vince Perlow boot, (save over $120 plus more at Vince with code THANKS25) with high-shine leather and soft ribbed knit. Shauna says they are a "mix of badass and class, eye-catching and confidence-boosting”.
7. FANTASY: Mara’s all about the Fantasy and the glitter, so I’ll leave you with two boots that are truly inspired by her vision (at least how I interpret it). First, SJP’s high-heeled Minnie Shimmer Boots, they come from a magical closet for sure. And in spectacular “win the lottery” dream vision, these Stuart Weitzman Stardust booties (30% off with code BLACKFRIYAY) covered in Swarovski crystals are the ultimate glam rock statement piece.
