So my faux leather boots arrived in the mail yesterday. All in all, I am pleased.
Please pardon my poor photography.
As fake, I mean faux, leather goes, they’re alright. They wouldn’t fool you if you stopped and gave them a good look, but they definitely are nicer than the cheapo pairs I had eyed in the big-box stores. They also have a cute red zipper thingy in the back (you know what I mean, right?). I ordered them in my regular size in wide width, and they fit both my feet and my calves, neither of which is exactly svelte.
Most importantly, because they were just $48 (free shipping and a coupon code courtesy of Retail Me Not), I won’t be over my clothing budget for the year. At least not until I learn of another “must have” item on Pinterest.
Anyway, I was finally able to wear this outfit, which just needed brown boots to complete it. Courtney Kampa, writing for Verily magazine says to break a few fashion rules to avoid breaking the bank, but I doubt she would say to wear my older black boots with this. Black boots with a primarily navy blue outfit just looks like . . . you need brown boots.
So y’all hurry up and go order yourselves some of these here boots, before they go flying off the shelves!
