One sale I indulged today was at DSW Shoe Warehouse, and after going in for a pair of knee-high boots, and practicing restraint the greatness of which I haven't since my hot ex called me for a "let's catch up" drink, I walked out with a great pair of Frye knee-high, chestnut side-buckle boots with a 2" heel, as well as a pair of sweet, gray suede round-toe pumps with a heel stripe detail, all for $178.
The store had a huge selection of excellent shoes, so if you live near one, I recommend you go. Mostly I lusted over the dozens of knee-high boots I tried. They keep your shins and calves warm, they keep your tootsies dry, they add sexiness to skirts and dresses, and instantly dress up jeans and leggings. Were I a kept woman, I would have walked out with 10 pairs, easily. But for now, here are my favorite knee-high boots, on sale, and perhaps there is room in your closet for a pair or two. But there ain't no room in mine.
