Off the Rack: Dolce Vita for Target

Dolce Vita for Target

If you follow me on Twitter, then you already know that I went to Target earlier today and saw four styles from the new Dolce Vita for Target shoe collection, an incredibly hush-hush collaboration that a few readers tipped me to weeks back but I couldn't find any info about it and no one was sayin' nothing! Oh, Target, you temptress. So I kinda wanted all four pairs: A lace-up black boot (side zipper so you don't have to fuss with the laces), buckle ankle boot, studded ballet flat and black oxford flats, ranging from $29.99 to $34.99. But when I get overwhelmed with desire, I try to step back and assess, "What do I really need?" So I summoned up all my willpower and left empty handed. I have no fear that these shoes will sell out immediately (other shoppers seemed none too impressed) so I will return in a few days with a sound mind and make my purchase(s) then.

I went back and bought the Buckle Ankle Boots and Lace-Up Boots. I've worn both extensively and find them to be very comfortable. They're holding up well.
