Personal Weakness: Shopping on RueLala.com

I have a confession to make… I am addicted to Rue La La and as far as I know, there is no known cure.

Best part of my weekend? Rue La La’s Sunday Night Styleathon Boutique. It opens at 8pm EST almost every Sunday night (as far back as I can remember!) and it features some of my favorite brands, although the brand selection and item choices are different every week.

I’ve scored so many amazing items on Ruelala.com, it’s ridiculous. My latest score was a pair of Born ankle booties…

 

They retail for $125, the cheapest I found them anywhere online for was $94.99 on 6pm.com.

So when I saw these puppies on RueLala for only $59.90, (over 50% off!) you bet your sweet bottom I grabbed them so quick, my credit card didn’t know what hit it.

I was so excited when these arrived in the mail! They are so soft, supple, sumptuous and stylish. Now if some of this darn snow would go away so I could try them out, I’d be one happy, happy girl.

I’m going to use the excuse that I bought these for myself for my birthday…. It’s next Sunday, so it counts, right?

Day 4 of 12 Days of Style – Lost Propertee

Christmas is almost here and yet I don’t quite feel like I’m in the “holiday spirit” yet. So I’m going to try something desperate here… 12 Days of Style! From now until Christmas, I’m trying to wear something something fun, trendy or out of the ordinary! Here is Day 4…

I have WAY too many tees in my closet… Two stacks at least 12 inches deep… I must have over 50 tees and I barely ever wear them! I just can’t stop collecting unique and vintage styled tees. This tee was one I was happy to add to my collection and I finally figured out a cool way to wear it.

With a team of researchers scouring the planet for the best designs, Lost Propertee is in the business of recreating vintage-style, collectible t-shirts. Designs range from out-of-print logos to regional vacation designs and unique vintage-styles. All Lost Propertee t-shirts are printed on Gildan Soft style t-shirts which are 100% preshrunk ring-spun cotton jersey for comfort and ease of care. Lost Propertee t-shirts are available online at www.lostpropertee.com and in specialty boutiques, and are retail priced at around $25.00.

I’ve paired it with that leather cropped jacket I got from TJ Maxx during my recent shopping spree. for a tough grunge look.

Also, I’m in love with these boots. I was looking for the perfect ankle boots and I finally tracked down B.O.C. Belina on 6pm.com. They are SO comfortable! I am so glad I bought them.

Dansko Nat Lace-Up Leather Boots Review

We received the Dansko Nat lace up leather boots last month to review and we’re pretty smitten so far.

First impression is that they are very sturdy and supportive, like all Dansko footwear. I love the studs and cute design on the toe. Overall, these are a really stylish and classy choice for Fall.

If you are looking for a shorter boot to wear with your entire Fall wardrobe, these fit the bill. They have a convenient side zipper, adjustable elastic gusset on side and adjustable laces for a truly customized fit. The heel is solid and has great balance and they are very easy to walk in. If you are looking for a little bit of height, without compromising your footing, these are the perfect choice.

SIZING: I normally wear a size 7 – 7.5 in most shoes. In Dansko, I wear a size 38 which is equivalent to a 7.5 or 8. I find that sizing up works best with Dansko, especially if they are a style you can wear socks with.

COMFORT: If you purchase the right size, you will find Dansko shoes to be extremely comfortable. They have a molded footbed that conforms to your feet. I have never had a problem with Dansko footwear rubbing or requiring a break-in period.

SUPPORT: These boots, like most Dansko styles, have very good arch support. If you do not like arch support, these may not be a great choice for you. I would recommend trying them on in a store instead of purchasing them online. The tall boot shaft lends great support to weak ankles and is an excellent choice for someone who wouldn’t normally wear heels because of the fear of discomfort and inconvenience. You will have so much confidence while wearing these boots.

OVERALL: Overall, I would definitely recommend these boots, especially to Dansko fans who are familiar with the feel and fit of Dansko footwear. I love the stylish studs, the lace up detail and the cute design on the top of the toe area. These are really cute and quite versatile.

You can wear them with skinny jeans tucked in, skinny jeans rolled up, boot cut jeans, leggings, tights, skirts, dresses and even shorts! Check out our post How To Wear Dansko Nat Lace-Up Boots for more ideas on how to wear these boots.

Fall Must-Have: Born Marxia Motorcycle Boots

Out of all the hottest trends for shoes this Fall, motorcycle boots are our favorite trend of all. We can’t stop gushing over these Born Marxia Motorcycle Boots.

I absolutely love these boots. I mean just look at how cool they are! They are more amazing in person than they are in pictures. These boots are made from a buttery soft leather that is both durable and attractive. The soles have great traction, inside or out. I also like the plaid lining that is both soft and warm. These boots do not run narrow and they run true to size. I got them in a size 7.5 and I can wear them easily with socks. (I normally wear size 7 in sandals and 7.5 in any close toed shoes that require socks.)

These boots were extremely comfortable right our of the box. No break-in time required. I could walk all day in these with no trouble at all. I even wore them apple picking a few weeks ago! When I get home, I don’t want to take them off as soon as I get in the door, like most boots. Best of all, I get tons of compliments on these boots everytime I wear them. If you are looking for some biker boots or motorcycle boots, definitely choose the Born Marxia!

Best of all, you can wear them with anything from skinny jeans and leggings to dresses and skirts. Say hello to the most versatile and COMFORTABLE leather motorcycle boots you’ll ever meet.
