It's started. It unavoidably happens every year. Right around this time, as soon as the temperatures start to drop... just a little... I get an uncontrollable urge...to buy some boots! Despite my big enthusiasm, I have a small budget, so I'm forced to carefully curate my collection of kicks each season. A few days ago I spotted a shot of Blake Lively on the set of Gossip Girl in the most perfect pair of boots! Casual for strolling around but trendy enough to give you some street cred- these babies are it! Problem? They are way beyond my meager budget. Solution? Find some look-a-likes! I admit, no boots of any quality are ever going to be cheap, but the styles I've found are similar enough and cost effective enough to give you the look, and last more than one season.
