I have been searching for the perfect pair of boots for quite a while. Little did I know that in Louisiana it was easier said than done. All of the swimsuits, the sandals, flip flops — all have moved to the front of the store. Well, I was heading to NYC and this Southern Girl needed boots.
I knew exactly what I was looking for — I wanted black, suede, mid-calf, slightly scrunchy, with a cuff at the top and no heel (see, I told you I knew EXACTLY what I wanted!). I thought this would be fairly simple to find – so I set off in search of them. I stopped at a few department stores, where I swear I must have looked at over 50 pairs of boots in total. They were all leather, with a heel, had buckles, not scrunchy enough — I couldn’t believe that this boot that I had conceptualized in my head didn’t exist. Bummed and frustrated, I returned home. I turned to Twitter, sending out this tweet detailing my frustrations.
Guess what? The recommendations started pouring in! Thanks to the suggestions of my twitter friends, I eventually stumbled upon the most amazing pair of (PERFECT) boots – the Bonanza by Steve Madden! Naturally, they didn’t have them in my size online, but I found them at the Steve Madden store at a nearby mall. These babies ROCK! They are comfy, stylish, and warm — they were my saving grace in NYC. You can check out my TwitPic in Times Square to see the boots in action, but I am just in love with their soft, warm goodness. So, if you are looking for the perfect pair of boots, you might want to consider these. Trust me, I’ve done all the leg work for you!
