So last week was the start of the half yearly sale, I went online the night of and I made a few purchases. Being a little unhappy with my weight (I really enjoyed myself while in Hawaii–and that means eating a whole lot) I decided to splurge on shoes instead of clothing–especially because I was looking to buy some new black boots.
I needed to buy a new pair of “unembellished” black knee high boots. I want to find some pointy toe ones that would look cute with my work clothes. This proved difficult, but I did come across a fairly plan black suede pair. I don’t normally buy suede because wet Seattle winters can prove to bit a little rough on the material–but these were Cole Haan boots with Nike air, so I had to have them (seriously, Cole Haan shoes with Nike air are the most comfortable stylish shoes you can buy–I am a total convert since buying one pair).
The thing is, I also found a very cute pair of Frye boots. They were a lot more fashion forward and featured a cool patchwork and snake print design. I love my Frye motorcycle boots, which held up nicely and are very well made–I don’t doubt I will probably own them forever (even though I don’t wear them nearly as much as I used to). They came in this dark grey color, which is very neutral and would go with everything. And they would look super hot over jeans with a chunky sweater in pretty much any color. So I bought those too. I figured when they arrived I would try them on and see which ones I liked and return the other pair (since even on sale, they weren’t cheap and we are in a recession and the holidays are coming up….).
Well the thing is I love both pairs–I can’t choose which one to give up. Here are the pictures, any thoughts?
