I don’t know about you but I just don’t have $900 to drop on a pair of boots like it ain’t no thang, but hey if $900 is pocket change in your world (I would like to live in your world for a day), by all means… spend it on what you want, it’s your prerogative; I’m just saying… my future globe-trotting self would never forgive such a decision. (By the byyy… ASIA January 2013, ANYONE? I’m giving ample notice so that we can accrue them vacation days! Haha)
Obviously, Isabel Marant wasn’t the genius that invented the style of these booties (cuz like, what came first – the chicken or the egg?!) but they caught on like wildfire in the fashion quarters of the interwebz, which makes these boots (in the words of fashiontoast) “simultaneously ubiquitous and elusive”. The fashion hipsters are probably pissed that the IM brand is starting to lose it’s indie-cred and is lending itself to the mainstream fashion blogosphere (fashiontoast & blonde salad, to name a few).
The other day, I almost had a fashiontoast moment at Gravity Pope where I stumbled upon The Isabel Marant Dicker boots, but alas the moment escaped me as they only had them in giant sizes (size 10 and up… uhhh). Anyway, I am totally cool with a Dicker dupe. Sorry that I had to ramble this long before getting to the point.

I like the Steve Madden ones best, but will probably wait for them to go on sale — SOOO lemme tell you ’bout this site called price!pinx. It tracks the online price of products for you and sends a notification when it goes on sale. YEAH, you’re welcome.
