I *had* to go to VV Boutique on Tuesday to look for some snow pants for my son and *happened* to browse past the boots just in case. My sister spotted them first, checked the size, then handed them over (sullenly, or did I imagine that? wink wink). Kenneth Cole leather boots in my size and beautiful chocolate brown slouchy suede-y awesomeness! For $18.90! Like any good thrifter, I went home and immediately Instagrammed my treasure then plotted an outfit for today. Since I’m doing the Take One and Pass It On challenge, I had to use something from my outfit yesterday (follow the arrows below)…
Boots of awesomeness.
Skirt $7, mustard tank $4.20, olive necklace $2 VV Boutique
Sweater $2 Hope Missions Bargain Shoppe
I’m guessing these boots would be in the vicinity of $200 – $300 regular retail! That, along with the great condition and comfortable fit, lands these in the VV Boutique Style Hall of Fame!
Not every picture is H-2-T Tyra worthy!
Crop zee head.
The “boxy top” was listed somewhere (September was a long time ago) as a fall trend and I liked the interesting leather pocket detail. For two bucks, it’s worth a wear!
This is as “crop top” as I get. You’re welcome.
I probably wouldn’t have worn a mustard tank if not for the #TakeOne challenge, but mustard goes with everything and it gave me a pop of colour and some coverage for my work activities which included donkey kicks and log rolls on a classroom floor. I live a life of glamour. I swapped my skirt for J Brand denim for an evening appointment…
Those are some fine boots.
Don’t get me wrong; I know boots alone can’t make you happy, but $18.90 Kenneth Cole leather boots can help to tilt the scales! Please note that I still want to be a Poppy Barley ambassador. If I love my thrifted boots this much, just imagine a pair of made-to-measure boots! Anyway, just like children, I always have room in my heart for more!
