The iconic Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots have been on my radar for awhile now, but sadly always out of my price range. This year my friend (who is obsessed with the beauty that is Olivia Palermo and her husband) made me aware of a similar version of the boots that was a fraction of the price at DSW. I for some reason didn’t order it right away like a sane person. Instead I mulled over it and waited until they sold out of the color I wanted, but happily when I was browsing the clearance section of the store I came across them on sale! So I bought them, took them home and was promptly stumped on how to wear them.
Everything I wore them with either made me feel like a lady of the night a la Pretty Woman or insanely short. So they sat in their box for about a month, then I came across Cheapishly’s post about her new boots and was re-inspired to figure out how to style them. Seeing her wear her post made me realize I was wearing the wrong length skirt and I went back to the multitude of Olivia Palermo pictures me friend sent me as inspiration.
(Note: When I checked today, all the colors are back in stock for the boots, so get them while you can! And with Black Friday coming up this week, I’m sure there will be some sale at DSW.)
