Style Dupe: Booties

Like many others, I have been shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Since last fall, I have been wanting to find a pair of suede ankle booties that could be worn with shorts, maxi dresses, jeans. I was so excited when I found a goregous pair from Vince Camuto for $104 - a $54 discount from it's normal price! I was very happy with these when I got them in the mail. However... when I was at Target today, I found a very similar pair for only $36!!! The only visual difference between the Mossimo Sawyer Booties (right) and the Vince Camuto Maves Booties (left) is the slightly darker shade and the bottom sole extends millimeters beyond the suede toe on the cheaper version. The roundness of the toe, relaxed ankle, and stack of the heel are the same. Can you tell the difference?

I don't know about you, but I'd rather put that $70 back in my pocket... by back in my pocket, I mean pick up a few other things that are in my Nordstrom wishlist. :)

Something New to Blog About

I know, I know! I haven't posted in 4 months! Let's just say my mind and creativity has been directed elsewhere... :)

On the morning of my birthday, I took a pregnancy test with the thought "if it comes back positive, then it will be the BEST birthday present ever... and if it came up negative, then we'll still be able to go out to dinner and enjoy a nice bottle(s) of wine".  Let's just say, I wasn't celebrating with a glass of booze that night!!!
