it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

And I got caught up in it.  I ended up with some extra family and friend laced, holiday leftover trodden, sleep overloaded days.  Never having done Black Friday’s crack of dawn sales, I ended up venturing out of the house for some browsing Friday evening.

As ridiculous as it may seem, while overlooking my parents snow covered front lawn, I was thinking about a pair of more rugged boots to wear specifically with shorts or dresses (or jeans I suppose) with a medium heel.  I recently learned that my very own (very small) mall in my hometown recently opened a DSW.  Thank God.

Not only did I come across a pair of shoes I will be ordering online, I found what I believe will be a great addition to my Miami winter wear.

I picked up the Diba Elyse booties.  They aren’t a really expensive brand to begin with being originally $80, however the adjustable strap to close the boot tighter around the ankle, extreme comfort and the incredible price made these a perfect fit for what I was looking for.  So far, I’ve already worn them with a flowy, girly dress, tights and a crop leather jacket out on Saturday night and jeans and a chunky sweater during the daytime to the mall.

They were marked down to $54.95 from $80, with an additional 30% off bringing the total to about $39, just under a total savings of 50%.

Who needs Black Friday when you get deals daily?  Not me.
