suede booties: splurge vs. steal

During my daily internet style stalking, I kept noticing Kate Bosworth's amazing booties that she seems to have on everywhere she goes.  After some searching, I discovered the booties were by the amazing Isabel Marant, and, even if I had enough extra cash lying around, they were no longer in stock.  I love Kate's style, and she clearly proves that the booties are versatile enough to wear with an array of looks, so I made it my mission to find some look-a-likes.  The closest pair I found were from Target and only $34.99.  They also received great reviews, so, needless to say, I bought them as fast as my fingers could type in my credit card information.  I plan on wearing them with skinnies and sweaters now, and when the weather warms up I'll rock them with everything from little dresses to cut offs.  Here's some extra style inspiration if you decide to splurge or steal :)

Thanks! I was so excited when I found those boots for so cheap. I think they'll be fun to wear in the summer instead of only living in sandals :) Kate obviously rocks them well!

THANK YOU for this post! I have been scouring the internet for a pair of Forbes-esque boots and I can't believe they were sitting under my nose at Target. And for so cheap! You have made my day.

Haha I felt the same way! There's another similar pair at Topshop for about $145 as well, but I just went ahead with the Target pair, and I couldn't be happier. I haven't taken them off!! They're so comfortable, and the suede is SO soft. I love them. Definitely cute with cut offs and short dresses; I'll be rocking them all summer :)

I'm the anonymous from March 17th and thought I'd just give you a heads up that these boots are on sale at Target! Is it sad that I'm considering ordering another pair?
