Boots, how do I love thee?

Check out my brand spankin' new boots I scored in the half-yearly sale at Nordstrom. I've been looking for flat boots for ages until I came across these lovelies. Though to be fair, they're not exactly flats, as they have a slight wedge action going on. But I'm happy to take any help in the height department I can get (I'm only 5'2. Enough said). I've long had a little love affair with boots, especially knee-high ones such as these. Not only do they keep your legs warm, but they also offer a bit of versatility to your wardrobe in the way of toughening up a delicate dress or adding a bit of intrigue to a pair of otherwise basic jeans. Plus, they conjure that whole perfect-fall-day-in-the-city vibe which I can't get enough of. Boots, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways....

It's funny--I have a similar pair with two buckles at the side by Seychelles. & I know Steve Madden had a similar, low wedge pair. I think they were both knock-offs of Loeffler Randall--which is fine by me as I can't afford those!

I know just what you mean, Ambika. I've been drooling after a pair of Loeffler Randall boots for years, but alas, they're $700 and I can't quite break down to buy them.

Oh man, I just went to shopbop and to my astonishment, they're on sale for $486. Which is STILL too high, but now it's that much more tempting to buy. Drat. http://www.shopbop.com/matilde-flat-wedge-leather-boot/vp/v=1/845524441807660.htm?folderID=282574488386899
