One of the boots below costs nearly 5 times as much as the other. Both are genuine leather, although the designer boots are certainly better quality, the budget brand won't let you down. Can you spot the real from the steal? Click either image to find out!
In addition to the Chadsworth Boots that I showed you earlier, Sperry Top-Sider kindly sent me their Ladyfish Boot, a new fall twist on the classic Sperry Top-Sider boat shoe. I was instantly attracted to this boot in photos (it's been featured in Teen Vogue and Lucky magazine) but in person, I had a hard time making them work with my wardrobe. Here, I paired them with a Merona for Target shirt, Forever 21 sweater, 7 For All Mankind jeans, and Linea Pelle via ideeli.com hobo. Part preppy, part sporty, this style-hybrid is something you will either love or hate. If you like the look, these boots are available in 5 colors and range in price from $98 - $129 at sperrytopsider.com.
Check back tomorrow when one lucky reader will have a chance to win their very own pair of Sperry Top-Sider boots!
The Christian Siriano for Payless Holiday 2010 Collection is out and it's hot! I love the Mena Dress Boot ($59.99), named for Siriano's muse/friend Mena Suvari, or so he told his Twitter followers. The Alexandra Exotic Strappy Sandal ($44.99) comes in red or blue and boasts a zipper-back detail and bold blue sole, while the Alexa Satin Peep-Toe Pump ($44.99) looks like it could be leg-lengthening and comfortable at the same time with that hidden platform and chunky heel. There are also two handbags, including a chain-link purse that's perfect for holiday parties. Most styles are available now at payless.com. Check out bigger photos after the jump - what do you think?
