Splurge or Save: Transitional Boots

I adore these Sam Edelman booties. Although, as with most every shoe choice I debate. And subsequently second guess how they will look on me. But accounting for the fact that I no longer live where sandals are acceptable all year anymore.....Ahh Chicago and your seasons! I need this ankle style of boot & see sooo Cute!



And then a couple days ago while reading one of my favorite blogs, CouldIHaveThat, I was like whoa! I knew I needed to get these boots! Samantha looked great rocking them - the push I needed to go grab a pair of my own. I liked 10bajillion times more than before! Look how great she looks rocking them in summer gear, and we know they will transition great. Then I noticed where she mentions getting hers from. Targ-eee (You know Target but the fancy way to say it, Targ-ay....). Ok bird walk done, back to the point.  WOW - look so similar.

So I hoped over to T's website to see if they even carried them....And holy-stop the presses they are currently on SUPAH sale, $12.24!!! Umm You know I purchased them, you know to test! (Hubs, I NEEDED THEM!!!!). Now at least I'll have more to spend on another pair of fall/winter boots!


Would you splurge or save? Or both??? (Sam's come in a great leopard version too! May need those!)

  2. I love both, but I would do the splurge - only because cheap shoes (even the cutest ones) never have the proper support you need... can lead to all sorts of back problems! I know, I know, I sound like an old lady... just ignore me.

    Also these are the types that you will wear to bits... you don't want 'em falling apart on you!

    Just my two cents!

  3. I agree with Grace...can't go wrong splurging on a classic pair of boots...especially since they are three season. just consider the price per wear :) (i always throw the "price per wear" benefit around the hubs)

  5. I would save and get the cheaper ones! Splurging is good but I honestly like the cheaper ones better!

  6. I love them both -- the color on the Sam Edelmans is hard to beat, but gotta go with Target for the price!
