Bring on the Snow.

Allow me to give you a quick fashion lesson. Each season the top designers create a new collection and send it down the runway. Buyers for high end stores around the country place orders for what they would like the stores to carry. The designers and the buyers are the trendsetters. However, not everyone can afford hand stitching and the cost of the materials that the top designers use. Often before all of the buyers orders are even in, other designers are working to replicate the runway looks at a lower cost and weeks (sometimes months) later they put out their own version. This cycle continues and eventually the items are mass produced for the general public which is when the trend finally arrives at your local mall. Fashion filters down.

I'm sharing this with you because it is important to know that you can usually find the $1000+ item that you have been coveting, for less. It just depends on how long you are willing to wait. That was certainly what happened in the case of my new winter boots...

In an effort to be prepared for the snow that is inevitable, I simply NEEDED a pair of these beautiful 'apres-ski' boots. The black patent Valentino's (see top row) were screaming my name, but the price tag gave me a mild headache. So instead, I opted for a pair of the anthracite Moon Boot Crocodile (shown middle row in dark brown color) and I'm so glad I did. I love them. Do you have your winter snow boots yet? Below, observe (and shop!) the filter down effect.


Happy Wednesday.

Treat everyday like you are on the runway.

Bring on the Snow.
