Who else is shopping this weekend?  It turns out, I’m not the only one who likes to “catch and release” at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Nordstrom’s fair return policy means you can buy things and take them back later (within reason  — I have a friend who was scolded for trying to “rent clothes” for returning a worn jacket.) This means you can score your sizes at the beginning of the sale, go home and think about it or try everything on with outfits, and then make up your mind later. Works great for me since I live out of town.
Julie and Jennie are both in Seattle, looking for boots.  They have great taste and know what they like, so check them out.  Julie got three, plans to return two and order her favorite (Frye Jane) in two colors:
 Julie’s Boots

Julie got: Frye 'Jane' Tall Boot, in taupe and in black

Sam Edelman — beautiful, and this over-the-knee look would be amazing on Julie who is Very Tall . . . but return because of heel height? 

Sam Edelman 'Sutton' Over the Knee Boot

Steven by Steve Madden (is  this a BP [teen] Brand?) .  . . Julie probably will return: These hit right at knee bend for me. The leather quality isn’t great–I think these are single-season boots. But I love the 21″ shaft with a flat heel for under $200.. . .

 Jennie’s Boots

here’s what Jennie picked . . . she’s got a similar boot vibe as Julie, but under-the-knee as opposed to the taller ones.  This makes sense for Jennie, who is a petiter kind of gal. 

Jennie got: "lovely and comfortable" Via Spiga 'Cristie' Riding Boot

Jennie says "the bomb - super comfy even with the heel. " -- Børn Crown 'Yolanda' Mid Calf Boot

Jennie says "not so comfy and while cute, less versatile so goes back." -- Charles by Charles David 'Regiment' Lace-Up Boot

What does Jennie wear her boots with?

I wear the skinny jeans and i wear skirts a lot of the time. I probably wouldn’t wear tall boots with “trousers” but then I don’t generally wear nice work trousers and when I do I have some ankle boots with a heel i wear.  Even if you don’t think you look good in skinny jeans, remember that you don’t have to wear them skin-tight and then, once tucked in, the boot adds the “visual weight” that the boot cut or straight leg would have. [If you aren’t too] hippy – i bet you could wear it well! That said, my friend who also won’t wear skinny jeans just wears the boots under jeans and they look fine, especially the type that have buckle detail around the ankle.

Anyone else?

Extra 10% off everything today at Bluefly.Com.  Yes I know, it’ s a racket, and we shouldn’t rush because they’ll go on sale again soon.  But I’m getting addicted to their search features (like it better than Shoebuy, even though Shoebuy has great prices and more low – to – mid-range price points).  My current favorites.
Cutesy round-toe ballet flat with bow, saved from being Too Sweet by the funky olive color:

Slingback flat.  Still not crazy about a slingback.  Why can’t we just put a normal shoe on the back? Repeat after me. “Pointy toe is good. Pointy toe is good.”
Michael Kors gunmetal leather Castle slingbacks

Oh look, this shoe has my name on it. In little tiny letters. It says “Robin,” can you see it?

 I tried this on last year and it didn’t work for me.  This would be good for someone interested in gradually upgrading their casual office look:

I will never wear a 3 3/4″ heel, but someone else needs these. HOLOGRAPHIC!
