Bootie Call!

I’m usually not a fan of ankle boots at all.  They cut my legs short and just bring out the chubbilicious thighs. However, for some very strange reason I fell for these Steve Madden.  They’re so casual and cool to simply dress down a flowy skirt or satin dress.  I’ve been feeling the unexpected pairings that helps create more of a vibe than a look.  You can probably say I’m just bored of the typical safe looks.  Seriously, if I live in a artsy town where people appreciate expression- I would be the weirdest girl on the block.   BTW.  These are the closest thing to the Isabel Marant Dicker booties, which retails for $600!
My experienced in these: The size run small, so go for 1/2 a size up.  I would also recommend a little extra padding at the bed.  After walking in these babies for nearly half a day,  I came home with blisters on my right big toe and scraping of my skin above my right heel.  They look comfy, but they are far from it.  Hopefully that meant they are worn in.  $129 bootie
