Winter is nearly over, for those who think wishfully. (Ah, wishful thinking, the engine of fashion!) And that means boots are on sale everywhere. I recently scored a fabulous pair of Miu Miu boots (similar to the ones below, but without the buckle detail) and adorable Belle by Sigerson Morrison patent leather flats at approximately 70% off their original retail prices, so I am prepared for the balance of winter, yet ready for spring should the occasion demand it.
I ventured away from two of my usual rules: the boots do not have skinny heels, and the flats show a discreet slice of toe cleavage. But change is good, and walking down the street on a sunny day with a shopping bag that has two pairs of on-sale fine footwear in it is even better.
