I KNOW that I said I was banning myself from shopping but that didn't quite work out. Upon seeing these boots on Anthropologie's website I fell in love. The price on the other hand I did not fall in love with. I, however, did end up with these boots yesterday. How you ask...?
Nordstrom's Anniversary sale! They were marked for nearly $100 off Anthro's price, and since the sale ends soon I bit the bullet and went for it. I am in love with them. They have the perfect heel height, and the perfect amount of edge. They have a steam-punk vibe to them, which I am all for.
Shop these boots here at Nordstrom's, or here on Endless.com at a price still cheaper than Anthropologie's.
