Hello, Again, to All My Friends

Hi there, my lovelies!

It’s been a very long time. I apologize for my hiatus, as I didn’t intend to not blog for this long. Life got a bit hectic. I’m back in school, I changed my grad school track, and I’m juggling motherhood, too. I’ve also decided to not sit in the house and be sad, haha, so I’m busier than I used to be, and I have to figure out how to schedule things so that I separate time for myself and the things that I love to do.

As I’ve written before, I love finding good deals. I love bargain hunting and discount shopping and I love thrifting! I used to be very apprehensive to shopping at a thrift store and I’ve found some of the best things at Turnstyles! They now have two locations, and I cannot wait to visit the other one.

So, I’ve become addicted to finding good deals! I love Hautelook, Zulily and I use Ebates so much! I love finding a way to save money. Here are some of the things I’ve found this past week:

Shake Your Booties

Okay, I am admittedly a boot aficionada and I appreciate a good boot more than most people. I love looking at how boots have changed historically, and I love how some trends come back into popular fashion with updated heel lengths, stitching, etc. I wanted to compile a list of some of my favorite booties this winter because it’s the perfect season to get booted!

Versace Medusa Bootie, $1, 150, Farfetch.com.

Listen, that price tag makes me quiver, too, and no, I cannot afford $1200 boots, but I can dream, right? I love how smooth and clean the stitches are on this bootie, and the Versace gold emblem on the sole is just the cherry on top. I would love to see this with a good solid patterned tight and a mini skirt with a leather jacket.

Pillar Look Extra, $32.99 (19.79 w/ 40% off code “SLAYRIDE”), gojane.com

Totally cute heel, (I love embellishments, admittedly), and these would be perfect with a dark cigarette-legged jean or black pants. They also come in black, which offers a different contrast to the heel. This is definitely a cute and cheap way to try the decorative heel trend.

Lori Black Brogue Boot, $56.00, simmi.com

As much as the Chelsea boot has been appropriated by both hipster and brunch cultures, it is still one of my favorite types of boot. Pair that concept with the detailing of a brogue, and you’ve completely won me over. This pair come in black and burgundy, and I’m having a hard time deciding which color to order!

These next boots are me, in boot form, and they are chock-full of everything I love about fashion!

MiuMiu Lace-Up Embellished boots, $475 , net-a-porter.com

The velvet, the grommets, the rich burgundy hue? IN LOVE, babes! I also love that it’s kind of giving me a Victorian feel and yet it’s totally on trend in terms of the crazy decorative boots that I’ve seen throughout runways and magazines.

 

Okay loves, so that’s my list for now, but I’m positive there will be an additional list because I love boots so much. They’re absolutely my favorite types of shoes.
