Remember that fantastic Brian Atwood sale I wrote about? Well here’s the amazing deal I managed to snag! I can’t tell you how long I’ve been looking for the perfect thigh high boots. I love how elegant an outfit can look with properly styled tall boots, not to mention they are great for lengthening the legs. What frustrated me the most during my search is that a lot of boots this high (for the price I was willing to pay) are crafted of man-made materials, which in my opinion don’t look as sophisticated. Another issue I encountered was that most styles I tried on went up just barely over my knees. Imagine my excitement when I spotted the Kacey on sale. As much as I wanted a pair of heeled leather thigh highs, the practicality and versatility of these suede flat-soled boots won me over, not to mention the fantastic price. I couldn’t wait to wear these, and immediately pulled them on when they arrived just two days later. It’s a good thing the weather isn’t warming up yet, I plan on wearing these a lot! If you love them as much as I do, the Kacey is still available in dark brown suede. I keep telling myself I don’t need them in another color…
I love clearance and final reductions, this means you can find fantastic shoes for the lowest of the low prices. But you’ve got to make decisions quickly because stuff sells in a snap! This morning I got a mouth-watering email: Brian Atwood Reductions. It pointed to some seriously reduced lust-worthy footwear, with prices so tempting that I wanted to load up my cart with fabulous footwear that I probably wouldn’t even have an occasion to wear.
Seriously sexy strappy sandals! The Alyssa is definitely a statement-making shoe. I’d love to adopt a pair of these, if only the fee was a little bit lower.
My favorite styles off the runways.
Even though it seems as though summer flew by in a flurry of summer dresses and sandals, I’m excited to start wearing fall shoes again, especially boots! Before each season starts, I browse the Accessories Index on Style.com for upcoming trends and to pick out my favorite styles. Since I can’t have them all, I’ll be keeping an eye out for similar styles or double-takes!

Of course I noticed all the dresses, but I was definitely paying more attention to the shoes worn for the punk-themed Met gala last week. I was surprised how many I actually recognized. I picked out several of my favorites, as well as tracked down where you could get some of them if you really wanted to. Enjoy!
