So I have to do a quick rant on a new purchase that I have wanted and wanted but NEVER thought I could wear because I have and will always have cheerleader/volleyball legs....anyhow my fabulous husband had gotten me this leopard bag from the Nordstrom anniversary sale (because I had mentioned it) but when I got it in the mail it was poorly made & looked cheap so one night we decided to do a din date & return it. When my hubby ran to the restroom I decided to do a quick inventory of the shoe department, especially since it was SALE time, & I saw these fabulous Sam Edelman Sutton over the knee boots and I thought to myself, "what the hell I am going to try them on & get it out of my system." They were regularly $299.95 and they were on sale for $199.90 which made them all the more appealing before I even put them on. So the guy brought out an 8 & a 9 & I thought for sure I would need the 8.5 that they were sold out of but NO I fit perfectly in the 9's and needless to say they are now nice & snug in my closet. ;) When I put them on & was walking around I heard someone behind me say, "those are interesting, but hot," hehe & it was my love so I knew they were a go in his book but I still was a little unsure as I felt like Julia Roberts in Pretty Women. Anyhow, I continued to walk around a bit & got a few awesome comments from some other women shopping so I then felt a little less hookerish & more stylish so I decided they were a must have. These boots are a pull on style with a partial zip closure and the heel height is approx. 3.5 which is actually a fairly comfortable height for me anyway. I didn't think I would be so excited for slightly cooler weather to get here but I am ready to rock these babies out! What do you think, good purchase?! What new trends are you all excited to rock??
