Oh how I love my boots. I'm a loud, proud, and unapologetic boot hoarder.
|Collected and loved for over a decade: black, brown, purple, pewter, knee-high, mid-calf, cowgirl, lug-sole, high heeled ...|
I'm in favor of wearing boots with absolutely everything once the weather begs for a closed toe shoe. Add an inspired collection of tights (one of my favorite resources for interesting tights: Forever 21) and you have the recipe for untold number of outfits.
So, what's missing from the The Starter Collection? Tiny little details.
It can be as simple as adding a gray option to your existing black and brown choices.
|Incredibly wearable color from Franco Sarto.|
Or infusing a fabulous pop of "look at me" color.
|Gorgeous statement red from Frye.|
The Starter Collection is not intrinsically sexy, so adding a little oomph in this department is a great idea.
|The architectural details, color, and cut of this boot ... all super-sexy! By French Connection.|
A boot doesn't have to have a high heel to be sexy. Hardware and artful cutouts have similar effect.
|So good with jeans, and dresses! Seychelles.|
We're not talking costume here, but rather boots that give an outfit a certain something. I have a goth-like pointy-toe boot (amazing stretch leather Louboutin), two cowgirl boots (one pointy toe, one square), and a lug-soled Nanook of the North sorta thing by Prada. Any of these can make an outfit noteworthy.
|These beauties are from Caboots and are about as authentic as you can get. This Texas boot company has hundreds, maybe thousands, of boot styles. Even better, you can order a completely custom pair right online: shaft height, materials, toe, heel, stitching ... just amazing.|
|These will vamp up even the most conservative bow-tie blouse! Find 'em at Nordstrom.|
|Frye's classic Campus 14L is the perfect foil for a floral dress and fisherman sweater.|
