These Boots Are Made For Walkin'....

These boots are made for walkin'...and that's just what I'll do...I'll walk them right out of the store and into my car!

I was "WORKING" at one of the local malls today pulling outfits for an upcoming kid's fashion show. (details to come!) My dear friend, Sue, came with me as my assistant to "assist" in gathering the outfits for the show. Well, of course, we were window shopping, as we walked from one of the anchor stores down to another anchor store in the mall. While window shopping, we could hear our "names being called" by these boots. I swear...we could hear our names being called and how these boots knew our names, I have no idea. But, we are SO GLAD that they were calling for us.

The store we entered was Charlotte Russe. Now, wait....hear me out, I know you are all thinkin' that "I'm too old to go into that store". Well, I think that EVERY TIME I walk BY that store. I feel REALLY OLD when I'm IN the store. But, this store is a great resource for following the trends, wearing the trends, and not having to spend a lot of money on the trends!

We head straight for the shoes and bypass all of the teenagers that are looking at us wondering WHY we are in the store and WHERE are our teenagers that SHOULD be shopping in the store. When we arrive in the shoe section, we realize that all footwear is "Buy One, Get One for $10.00" Yep, that's right! It's like getting a pair for free....practically! We were squealing with excitement, but no one heard us over the blaring rock music that was coming out of the speakers. Yes, I said BLARING! It was really loud and, then, I realized that it was BOTHERING me. It was offical, I'm getting old! I'm now commenting on the music volume in a store. Yikes!

But, back to the boots....they have some GREAT STYLES for VERY REASONABLE prices. Now, as you can tell by the "Buy One, Get One for $10" offer, they are not top of the line materials and/or the highest quality. But, this is what I LIKE about places like Charlotte Russe. If you are willing to look around and sift through the merchandise a little bit, you can find items that "LOOK" high quality without the "high quality" prices. Then, when you're done with that particular trend, you can move on to the next without an empty wallet.

In stores, the offer is "Buy One, Get One for $10.00". Online, the offer is "Buy One, Get One for $15.00". Not sure what the reasoning is for the different price offers (maybe shipping?), but either way, it's still a great deal! Trendy boots without the trendy prices!

Let's just say this...those boots are made for walkin'...and 3 pairs walked out to my car and 5 pairs walked out with my friend! I hope my husband isn't reading this.....or should I say OUR husbands...

So, don't delay....check out Charlotte Russe today!
