Fashion is the way I introduce myself to the world, every day, without saying anything.

Hi friends! Thought I’d bring back one of the more popular posts around these parts, and one of my personal favorites – splurge / save, or, as I like to call it, real deal / huge steal!
This weekend, my good friend and future SIL Batya got in touch and mentioned she was going shoe shopping. As you can imagine, I immediately volunteered to aid in her search. Aside from sneakers (I recommend Nike Air Max) and a great pair of rain boots, she was in the market for a great pair of work appropriate, low heeled shoes. We sent links back and forth, and she asked me what my favorite footwear brand is. Funnily enough, I don’t have one, but I did send her in the direction of my favorite online retailers Shopbop and Net A Porter. On the subject of Net A Porter, I sent her a link of my favorite Isabel Marant booties. She didn’t enjoy the price point (frankly, neither do I), but she did enjoy the look of the boots, as well as the small heel.

I did a little poking around the internet this weekend, and look what I found!

Five hundred dollars less for almost identical boots! The SM boots even have similar stitching, which is so pretty. And to be honest with you, the Steve Madden version looks a little sturdier to me. I don’t know about you all, but I walk hard, and living in the city, heels are almost the first thing to go on my shoes.

These boots are versatile (especially in black), but I think I prefer them best paired with skinny jeans and an oversized sweater or coat, like Emma Stone did, here:


Ugh, talk about #flawless. What do you think of this week’s pick?
