Review: The Lone Star Boot by Skechers

Skechers review

Remember Carrie Bradshaw’s fabulously luminous closet in the Sex and the City movie? Well that WILL be mine one day, even if it means I have to construct it myself. And though I can only wish that there would be a pair of Manolo Blahniks on the shoe rack, I can guarantee there will be an entire section of that closet shelving all the boots I will own - tall, ankle, studded, spiked, over-the-knee, cutout - you name it. There is no such thing as too many pairs, and don’t even try to argue that.

I'm sorry but those discounts just aren't gonna cut it for the biggest shopping week of the year! So I've filtered through all the sales that came across my desk and narrowed it down to 10 sites offering at least 50% off. Now that's what I call a deal.
