I've been lusting over these boots for about a month and a half. Aren't they just lovely?
I would have snatched them up a long time ago but they're a bit pricey for me. Right now they're on sale for $20 off but they're still not cheap. The sale brings the price to $129.99 at Bakers. Hmmmm. Are they worth it?!
Thinking about going for it since black boots can go with everything and these boots are just about my perfect in my eyes. This is what I was looking for in a pair of boots -- flat or just about flat (these have a wedge of about 1 1/4 inches), a tall riding boot type look, I didn't want the boots to have a suede look or to be too shiny, didn't want them to look pirate-y or hooker-y. Also, these seem like they would last a long time. Better to get something you really, really love rather than settle for something that's just meh that you'll end up not wearing more than once. (At least I'd like to follow that idea in theory and instead I just buy tons of randon-ness at Target and Old Navy. ha.)
But then today I found this pair of Steve Madden boots. These boots are quite a deal -- regularly priced at $199.95. On sale for $119.90. So, the Steve Madden boots are almost exactly like the Bakers boots but they're $10 cheaper. And they have one buckle instead of two. Hmmm. I kind of like the two buckle look -- but is Steve Madden better quality and these will maybe last longer?
Would you not order such an expensive item without trying them on?
What should I do?!
p.s. If for some reason you think these boots look like a pirate or a hooker would enjoy them, please tell me. I must know the truth!
p.p.s. Or what if I got the Bakers boots in blue -- would that be ridiculous?
