For fall and winter boots are a basic fashion necessity. Whether you are into chelsea boots, ankle boots, knee length boots, thigh high boots, flat boots, heeled boots, all it comes down to, simply enough, is who you are, and what you like! I am personally partial to boots as a whole. I think for the breezier, colder seasons they can make or break an outfit. I know for somebody like me who has quite the expensive taste, I will look at a pair of designer shoes and dream of one day wearing the hell out them! Nowadays though it's so easy to get your hands on a pair of shoes that not only look great but feel great, and last you such a long time. I mean isn't that the ultimate goal? To spend your hard earned money on fashion that lasts you a lifetime! I know when it comes to my shoes that that is, without a doubt, the ultimate goal. This season I have fallen in love, in particular, with designers who have put out these combat-style boots, with thick bottoms and interesting little details. They almost have this goth vibe that intrigues the hell out of me and makes me wonder where can I get my hands on a pair. But then I take a look at the price tags and reality hits me... My wallet just isn't that fat! So I thought why don't I look for cheaper alternatives that are just as cute and get me my money's worth. So... That's exactly what I did!
