And that's what happened with my New Boots. They were $180 down to $50 (!), knee high, the only pair left and in my size (it was meant to be!). They are grey, not black, shock horror(!) but still manage to be very versatile. I have been wearing them over skinny jeans (a lot!) but also under flowy cocktail dresses and a knee-length fitted dress. They are my new go-to shoe (sorry tan gladiators, but its cold outside!). Perfect for winter and a bargain buy. What more could a fashionista ask for?
