Did some MAJOR damage this week at my local J. Crew. I will be hopefully posting some of those outfits this week, but my most exciting purchase this week was a new pair of boots purchased at Anne Klein. I tend to be really stingy with buying boots (since I can only wear them in the fall/winter) and I own only one other pair of boots that are nice enough to wear to work. I bit the bullet and finally bought a pair of black boots for the first time in about 8 years. For reference, my previous pair of "going out boots" were probably made out of some form of PVC and the heel broke off after a year - that's what I get for paying $30 for shoes in med school.
I don't think I have ever purchased anything from Anne Klein and I am very pleased with the quality and price of these. They were marked down to $69 from $129 + an additional 20% off! I was digging the cute wedge heel, which gives me a little height without killing my feet when I stand all day at work.
I tend to wear a size 8.5-9 in J. Crew shoes (usually a 9 - except for patent leather, where I wear a 9.5) but these are 8.5 and fit perfectly fine even with socks, so probably size down a 1/2 size. They are still available at Piperlime.
