It's official: the brown boots from last week are going back to Nordstrom. I tried on some work appropriate outfits with them and they just didn't mesh. I felt like Courtney Love. And as much as I love a good costume, I don't want to wear one everyday.
As fun as they were, if they don't go with the clothing I already have, then I need to say goodbye.
So it's back to the drawing board. Per Jennifer's suggestion in the comments yesterday, I checked out Victoria's Secret:
YES. This is exactly what I want but can never find. They're $158, but maybe they'll have a sale soon. If not, I may just buy them anyway.
I'm also toying with the idea of getting a pair with heels. These walk the line between work and play very nicely. $148.
These are a little Errol Flynn with that flap, but I kind of like how streamlined they are anyway. I also like the price: $109.
Where are your boots from? Any places I should skip? (I never have luck at Payless or Zappos, sadly.)
