Not sure if you recall, but a few years ago Ann Demeulemeester designed a pair of flat, triple-lace boots—á la Edward Scissorhands—that were, in a word, amazing. I became obsessed with them, but at $1695 they didn't quiiite fit into my budget. The great news for me was that Pour La Victoire created some gorgeous look-alikes at a fraction of the cost. But, that "fraction" rang in at about $560...still not in the cards. However, hope was not lost.

A couple years ago, Gilt, a website dedicated to bringing it's subscribers deals on designer duds, listed the Pour La Victoire look-alikes. They were on sale for about $150. I had a credit on my account. The rest is history. And in case you are wondering, we are still very much in love.

I wore them yesterday with mid-rise jeans by Gap, a thrifted cropped sweater, an army-green anorak, top knot, glasses, and a bold red lip.

This very simple outfit paired with the boots becomes a touch more special. Basically what I am saying is that these boots have special powers. No big deal.

Til next time.
