These booties were a $27 dollar purchase and with-in minutes of putting them on after their arrival I had already envisioned tons of outfits. My biggest problem will be not over wearing them now. After reading a blog Kim had posted a few weeks ago about my favorite shoe role model, Carrie Bradshaw I have been keeping my eyes open for my own pair of knock-off Dior Extreme Sandals. They were a pair of Heels Sarah Jessica Parker wore through-out most of Sex and the City the movie, and after discovering that Kim had found a replica version for such an affordable pricing I couldn't help but want to search out my own pair. Imagine my surprise when there they were looking at me through the Kmart website, in black and with a $27 price tag. I quickly added them to may cart and began envisioning myself becoming a Carrie Bradshaw replica myself.
Kmart's online shoe selection was so impressive that I couldn't help but to scroll through all 600 of their options. As soon as these slouch gray boots came on the screen I swooned, but only a bit. They were so elegant in the gray, but with a bit of an edge that fits right into my style. They didn't have them in my normal 8.5 size and I was so disappointed. I clicked off the website saddened by the lack of sizing. All night however those boots walked through my mind, and I decided that I would take the risk and order them in a size 9, but for $20 I thought the risk was worth taking. I was pretty sure that they would be too big, making them hard to walk in and when I pulled them out of the box I must admit I closed my eyes a bit while I slipped my feet into the pair. They are a perfect fit! In fact after walking around the house a bit in them, I quickly decided that if I had gotten them any smaller they would never have fit.
I imagine myself wearing them with mustard colored tights. However I don't have any idea what clothes I would wear with my mustard tights and gray booties, and I don't own any mustard tights so for now I shall prance around my apartment in my new best friends while I decide what else to pair with them.
Thank you to Kmart for proving me wrong, and Thank you to Kim for unknowingly convincing me to look outside my shopping box!
