Yesterday I ventured out for my first holiday shopping excursion and was delighted by the abundance of all things sparkly, sequined and shimmering. All of the unabashedly feminine dresses begged for tough elements, so began my search for a pair of deconstructed buckled boots. I first stumbled across Fiorentini + Baker‘s option at Barney’s and couldn’t deny their supple leather, tri buckles and steep price. Luckily, Steve Madden has an indisputably similar option that will leave you with extra money to splurge on pieces (like this and this) to balance them out perfectly.
EDIT: I managed to find an even cheaper version of the Steve Maddens here for $112!
