Today, it’s all about trying something different.
As you can see, today’s images are significantly different from the usual deluge of street-style shots. In anticipation of the upcoming James Bond movie, Spectre, today’s images channel the aura of a femme fatale Bond girl with the help of sleek over-the-knee boots, a deep V romper, and hair extensions.
For a few months, I’ve been slowly saving up for the highly covetable Stuart Weitzman ‘Highland’ boot as I’ve been lusting after it for over a year already, but then recently, a big dose of reality hit and I suddenly realized how ridiculous it was to blow $800 on a pair of shoes when I could use that same $800 for so much more – a plane ticket to Europe, multiple wardrobe investments (as opposed to just one pair of shoes), future grad school tuition, rent, a shelter dog in need… So I quickly dropped that notion and instead opted to look for a similar pair of over-the-knee boots at a more reasonable price. For a while, the closest option I could find was the Sam Edelman ‘Kayla’ boot, but I had my qualms about that – the heel is too high for everyday wear, the shaft is a little too loose for my liking, and I wasn’t very fond of the platform. I remained figuratively perched on the fence, unable to justify spending that money on something I wasn’t 100% in love with, but then I came across the Steve Madden ‘Gorgeous’ boot. Physically, it looks a lot more similar to the ‘Highland’ boot than does the ‘Kayla.’ Compared to the ‘Kayla,’ the heel of the ‘Gorgeous’ is slightly more chunky and not as towering, thus offering more stability and comfort. Granted, it’s not crafted from genuine suede, but for the price (hint: be like me and get it when Steve Madden’s having a sale), one can’t really complain. As far as I can see, it looks good, feels comfortable and luxurious (yes, even with the faux suede!), and holds up well. So, long story short: if you’re in love with the Stuart Weitzman ‘Highland’ boot but cannot bring yourself to bleed out the $800, go for the Steve Madden pair- it offers the same sophisticated look without breaking the bank!
