Lady in Red

All season long I have felt this nagging for a pair of red boots. I actually think it probably started last year, when I lost out on an Ebay bid for some amazing vintage red boots. At the time I had no idea what I would wear them with but they were unbelievable, and I couldn't pass up the $10 price tag. Well at the time it was $10 but by the time the bid closed, I was outbid and the price tag jumped up quite a bit. When I first saw that Payless had a pair of Red Suede Boots out this season, I had mixed emotions. My long lost beloved red boots, but what would I wear them with? What Wouldn't I wear them with? Would they get enough wear to justify the price? And so with so many unanswered questions I have left the boots sit there mocking me for what seems like an eternity. When I stumbled upon, Kyla at Blue Collar Catwalk today,( http://www.bluecollarcatwalk.com/ ) I was immediately in love with her style. Casual, and Subtle yet so Sexy and Cool. And those shoes! I love a fashion blogger who isn't afraid of flats, or in this case a great pair of red boots. She has me sold. I can pull off a pair of Red Boots, they would be a great addition to my winter wardrobe, they would add a splash of color and in her words, " will act as a great conversation piece". I know what you're thinking, how very 70's of you Kayla. What can I say. I'm in love.

Payless sells these suede red boots from their Alice and Olivia brand for $49.99. The price tag is a bit high for me, and I haven't been able to justify them enough to pay price. I tend to collect Payless coupons however, and with my birthday this month they have just sent me a 20% off coupon. With that and a few others I have been sitting on, maybe I can bring down the price a bit. A birthday present for myself maybe?
