Ah, boots. The only thing that redeems the sad, slow decent into the winter months. I generally buy a new pair every fall after much research, Marianne-torture, and gnashing of teeth. This fall I found a deal on a pair of boots I've been eyeing for years - the Loeffler Randall Matilde. The very simple design really appeals to me and I love the look of a low wedge - it's a bit more flattering to the leg than a completely flat boot.
The issue was always price. The Matilde is really, really stupid expensive, though they do go on sale. In fact, they were recently very discounted on Amazon and I was considering a pair...until I checked eBay and found a great price on a pair in my size that was even cheaper than that. So I bought them, completely convinced they wouldn't fit, would be too big in the calf, teeth gnashing, etc.
Droopy cardigan! Of course.
I don't know if I've ever taken a close up of this craziness but man, I love this necklace. I recommend everyone have a big tassel necklace. It will complete you. (And ugh, this one is so pretty!)
One more look at the Matildes. If you love the style but not the price there are some good dupes available here and here.
