Booties to Kick Your Year Into High Gear
It's a new year (Hey #sweet16!), we've made our resolutions, decided on our mantras, made our vision boards, planned our weekly menus and sworn off frivolous spending. (For the sake of transparency: the Shoes N Booze squad did NOT do all of that. We did commit to more consistency, and we hope you'll hold us accountable.) Anyway, back to the frivolous spending thing... there are certain sales that make refraining pretty impossible. Besides, a pair of kick-@$$ designer heels in a timeless silhouette at a fraction of the original price is really more of an investment, right? Well, here are a few places to score a good deal:
Giuseppe Zanotti's stiletto-heel, pointed toe patent booties are a great bet because they're incredibly versatile. Whether with jeans and a tee, a polished skirt and skirt or an edgy mini dress. Since the silhouette is sleek, you'll be able to wear them over and over without that "ugh, those shoes... again?" feeling. And they're down to $394 from $895 at Amazon.com.
You really can't go wrong with block heel ankle booties this season (and beyond...)- especially when they have gold insets at the heel and are from See by Chloe. They've got enough cool girl cred for for an indie show, and (we're guessing) the block heel lets you dance the night away at the after party. And if you end up making a
Laurence Dacade's Isola Ankle boot seems to have it all. We don't suggest going out to dive bars or clubs in these because (well) gray suede, but they're probably a front runner for brunches and other outings where you want to look polished but not contrived. They're $256, down from $945. Get them while you still can.
Paris" bootie by Saint Laurent is a luxe take, and you can get it for $498 (down from $995) at Kirna Zabete.
