In place of Ann...

Since I can't afford these awesome Ann Demeulemeester boots (which I only know about because of the fantastic blog that is Sea Of Shoes):

I purchased these from the DSW website:

Fashion blogs have been a huge inspiration lately. They've opened my eyes to a whole world of cutting edge designers that you don't see covered on E or other silly celebrity show that does the whole "fashion police" bullshit. I've also attempted a DIY project that didn't quite pan out (more on that later). I'm going to give it another shot, though. Anyway, I LOVE these boots and have a tendency to strut whenever I wear them. The $109 I spent on them didn't break the bank and I know I'll have them forever. Let's hear it for bargains!
