The Look for Less: DV by Dolce Vita 'Jamison' Boots

These genuine leather DV by Dolce Vita 'Jamison' boots are $58.90 (down from $118.95) at and come in taupe, beige, orange-red or teal.

I just bought these faux-leather 'Kaelyn' boots from Target ($29.99) and someone complimented me on them and asked if they were by Dolce Vita - oops! Didn't even realize these were a knockoff. (Or are they? It seems like Dolce Vita has given Target their blessing to make lower priced versions of lots of their shoe styles, doesn't it?)

Anyways, I love love love my Kaelyn's, wore them all day while running around and my feet couldn't have been happier. They look great worn with jeans or skirts and dresses. Highly recommend. I'm thinking about getting the Jamisons, too, just because I love this style so much.

I got the real thing back in February and wore them all spring! So worth it! Too bad I can't wear them now because it's 100 outside...

I have just bought a pair at Nordstrom Rack in blue. I had coupons so it was almost free. I wish I had found them in taupe though, so I'll check these at Target. Thanks! Oh and the DV run small. I usually wear 6 but I had to buy them in 7 in order to wear socks.

Hi! When you're talking @ coupon at Nordstrom Rack do you mean Nordstrom notes or some other coupon? I shop at Nordstrom all the time but have never come across a coupon. Am I missing out?

I know that DV Dolce Vita made a line specifically for Targe and I have a pair of wedges made by them. I get compliments all the time AND they're comfy! Sometimes its a score at Tar-je!

See that's what I don't get - Dolce Vita did a line for Target and it was branded as such:

But now the look-a-like styles are labeled Mossimo, which is a Target brand, but they clearly look like DV. It's a mystery lol.

I bought them in each color at They say that they are faux suede on the website but the shoes are clearly real suede and it say so on the inside label. I have been wearing mine in the Taupe a lot...up until the recent heat wave. I like them with cutoffs and t shirts.

@cindy Omg you're right! The website says faux, but my boots say "leather upper" on the inside. Score. Now I really need to buy another pair...
