I really want these boots. It must be turning to fall because my yearly hunt for the perfect boot has begun once again. Anyway, for me - these boots would be a huge splurge. So, I emailed them to Felicia, one of my best friends, with the tag line "talk me out of these - tell me how unpractical I am being" and here is what she wrote to me:
"Unfortunately, before I read your message I thought, "How practical." They really are. A great way to class up any nice pants and top outfit. And as the description says, they are "timeless." Ok, I'm not doing my job very well.
The way I see it buying expensive clothing is justifiable when it is first timeless; second, when you know you will get certain use out of it because of how it fits with your wardrobe; third, when you can buy it on sale (sale = still really expensive, but at least you can tell yourself you are getting a deal!).
So really the only practical thing I have given you to work with is #3. And the problem is that #3 is often in conflict with #1 (I find some timeless things just never go on sale). Is it possible, however, to see if these boots do?
Clearly this is what I'd rather be thinking about then what I am currently working on : )"
I love her so much - smart, talented and one of the best friends one could ask for. Verdict is still out as to whether I will take that plunge, but she sure did a good job convincing me!
