Fall Fashion Challenge: Booties
Let’s get to the actual fashion challenge of the week!
Our first Marshalls challenge was to find booties. For the challenge I headed to Marshalls for first time ever, and I was a little skeptical, but curious. We don’t have discount stores like Marshalls in Scandinavia, and basically I didn’t know what to expect.
But boy when I first laid my eyes on Marshalls shoe section, I was blown away!
I saw Louboutin heels and Gucci boots, I couldn’t believe it! It was way beyond my wildest expectations.
The selection was amazing. At first I was browsing all the fancy and super trendy high heel booties and the selection for trendy fall booties was amazing. I had very hard time choosing a favorite pair among them.
Here are some of the fall booties I found from Marshalls – Pin your favorites (don’t forget to use the #gotitatmarshalls) from these:
In true Skimbaco-spirit I wanted to be adventurous and look for trendy booties that also were a little more daring what I normally buy – without forgetting the top fashion trends this fall. I found these wild animal print booties, and then these tribal ankle boots perfect for fall. Both prints are trendy this fall.
These wedge booties are like the perfect daughter of preppy oxfords and wild wedge sneakers = both trendy this fall.
.. but I also loved these sexy booties that would be perfect dressed up – or with jeans. Pretty much anything black leather is very Fall 2012.
Did I mention that the amazing selection made it very difficult to choose?
I was hypnotized by the Louboutin boots, and then as I was trying on a pair of super high heels as I realized what I really needed was boots I could walk all around New York City this fall.
I picked the boots I instantly laid my eyes on when I walked into the store, but forgot for a while since I was really trying to focus on the mission to buy booties. And once I tried them on, there was no turning back. I know I went to Marshalls for booties, and despite the fear of failing my first fashion challenge, I had to get this pair of boots that were like made for me and exactly what I needed for the fall. These Franco Sarto boots are the softest leather ever and they are maybe the most comfortable boots I’ve ever worn. I guess I also learned a true Marshalls lesson: you never know what you can find!
Plus.. the retail price for these was $180, I got them at Marshalls for $99,99.
Can a girl hope for more? Well, maybe for YOUR opinion.. How do you think I did?
I updated my summer outfit by changing my flats to a warmer boots.
The outfit is perfect for a sunny fall day when it’s warm in the afternoon but it gets colder at sunset. I rocked this outfit at a movie date with my boyfriend!
If you think I did good… Please help me to win the Marshalls Fashion Challenge by repinning the pictures – and get a chance to win a $100 gift card to Marshalls as you play along too.
