Eat The Cupcake, Buy The Shoes

So there are these boots...and I'm kind of in LOVE.

I've lusted over them for well over a year now so trying them on again last night for the umpteenthed time just set me over the edge. I just can't seem to bite the bullet and buy them.

You see, they have a pretty, and I mean pretty, pricetag and when you're saving up for a house...it's hard thing to swallow.

More than the cost of a pair of patent Loubatins.
More than a flight to Hawaii.
Double what I pay per month for my Lexus.
...if that gives you any idea.

SHOT. TO. THE. HEART.

On a good note, boots last forever and here in Texas, it's normal to wear them year-round. They also have a lifetime guarantee. As if that's not enough, since Beau has spent the same amount on his custom boots, he is ready to swipe his credit card. (He's a good man, I tell ya.)

Yes-I realize this is a decision that only girls in the South have to make but you Southern girls...
tell me these are not B-E-A-Utiful.

I'm a sucker for leather tooling...



I rest my case.

If someone wants to deliver these to my door, I may or may not love you forever.
And then I would probably pee on myself.

  1. Check out corralboots.com!! Most of their boots aren't as detailed but they have some really nice ones that won't totally break the bank! I'm swooning over a few pair but cannot justify another pair of boots right now...I already have 4 pair of them. Of course when you wear boots every day it's almost justifiable.

  4. GORGEOUS!!! Are those Old Gringo or Corral? I know what you mean about the price tags though! Puts such a damper on the pocket book! It is justified though in the life span that they have... they'll last forever & you can wear them all of the time!

  6. I think if you have found the "PERFECT" pair of boots that you know you love, you should definitely get them! Boots are crazy expensive but like you said- you can where them forever & they last forever! It is so hard to find that "perfect" pair especially for women. There are so many more options for men. I say you should do it :) Love them, super nice!!! Plus it's the perfect season for some new boots!

  8. ok, so I love to shop and am AMAZING at finding a reason to justify a purchase... so here you go, You just hit 900 followers! GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT, and it's better to buy them now BEFORE you have the house because then you will have them paid for and not have to worry about where you are going to find the money with mortage payments, extra house costs.... I think you have made a good decision to try them on for a year and you need to add these to your closet!

    Happy Shopping :)

  16. You should absolutely buy a designer purse before spending THAT much on boots.

  17. You will carry the purse EVERY day. you wont wear the boots every day. If you did I would kick you. BUT they are the most beautiful boots I have EVER seen. FACT

  18. I totally agree with Kristen - those boots are stunning, but a purse would be on your arm every. day. I'd buy a LV handbag, hands down. But do what makes you happy, and if that means saving for a house... keep on savin' away :)
