Jeffrey Campbell Metallic Finished Heel $190


Louis Vuitton LV Inlaid Wood Heel $1390

Boot Looks for Less

This week I popped into DSW for a little name-that-brand-kock-off fun. It is a great game! Try it sometime with a girlfriend who also loves fashion. DSW is a boot-lover's "name-that-tune".

DSW also is a great place to find signature boot styles at 10% the price of the original designer version. For trendier styles to be worn in a less sartorial critical environment, I would totally buy the DSW version at such a HUGE savings...

Left: Tory Burch Theresa Riding Boot $595
Right: DSW $49


Left: Rag & Bone Brown Harrow Booties $495
Right: DSW $79

Left: Valentino Rockstud Rain Boot $445
Right: Chinese Laundry $49

Left: Stuart Weitzman 50/50 Over Knee Boot $595
Right: DSW Over Knee Boot $49
