The Holy Grail of Shoes


While scanning my Google Reader earlier today, I noticed a coupon for JC Penney’s that ended today. Apparently, they’re having a big ole sale – and it was a BIG one!

I fell in love with these boots. Like, IN LOVE. They’re perfect! Flat-ish, wide open calf opening, and that buckle? Actually adjustable! It can go from leggings to jeans – which makes them so flexible. YES.

I needed the black ones. I already have a pair of brown boots albeit with heels. But I couldn’t get the website to show me what they looked like in black so I could make a decision. I needed to try them on anyway because I can’t seem to buy shoes online. I know you can send them back for an exchange but then I wouldn’t have them right away! So I ran up to the closest store but of course, they didn’t have them. Figures.

I had enough time to try another store before picking up my Christmas cards at Costco and making it to my 6 pm audition. So of course I had to run over there and check to see if they had them in my size.

The stores were crazy busy (why in the world is everyone at the mall these days?) but I found the shoe department pretty quickly. I tried on the brown boots because they didn’t have the black ones in my size.

That’s when the problems started – I couldn’t pass up these brown ones! They were SO perfect on and did I mention? They were on sale for $39.99. AND I had a $10 off coupon. SCORE.

So I treated myself to a pair of black and brown boots, each for $30 – less than half of what one pair was priced originally!

They’ll be coming directly to my house within the week … and I can’t wait!


  1. Awesome boots! You just can't so no to a great boot at that price!!

  2. I had these boots last year! I LOVED them to the point that I completely wore them to pieces. Enjoy them!

  3. Wow! Score! Those are super cute. You're going to have to post an OOTD picture with you wearing them when you get them.

  4. GREAT find and good price! I have had problems finding boots for a reasonable price that dont' look cheap, I'll have to check these out!

  5. Um, these are awesome. Seriously.

  6. Those are cute! I found some at kohls this year like that, I wish they had made them in black too!
