Splurge vs Steal...

Ashley Tisdale

OK, I must admit, I am definitely addicted to boots and have been for some time now...I am not ashamed of the number of boots I own...! Well, maybe just a little, but that doesn't stop me from loving them just the same. Boots can make even the simplest dress, skirt, leggings or jeans yearn for compliments galore.

I feel head over "heels" in love with these Christian Louboutin Piro Boots(sold out) last season, but I just couldn't make myself drop the hefty price tag...I mean, there were way more boots that I had to invest in to round out my shoe closet. Any who, these boots were spotted on everyone from Kim and Khloe Kardashian to Jennifer Lopez in her romantic comedy "Back-Up Plan". Perfect for pairing with a sleeved mini dress or with your favorite pair of will definitely get your money's worth by purchasing.

Always the one on the look out for a more affordable version of my favorite pieces, I was more than taken aback when I came across these CIROCCO boots on the Aldo website! I immediately flashed back to the day I fell in love the the CLs on last season...I knew I had to HAVE them this time around. Then came the all important question...which color? I was definitely torn because which fashionista isn't drawn to a pair of black boots...exactly we are all drawn to the sexiness of the perfect LBD, stiletto, or boot! So, I asked myself..."do you really need another pair of black boots?" Considering I own at least 8 or 9 pair...heels to flats, knee-high to OTK to ankle, suede to leather...I decided that I had to have the Suede Tan and that they would be the perfect pop of color with my many days of fall fashion and dark colors.
