On the road again

I recently tagged along on a couple of my husband’s business trips.  Nothing exotic, just Atlantic City and New York City.  Lots of fun and a little shopping in both cities.  Here’s my new purchases:

I already have a pair of AG Stilt jeans and they are my favorite pair of jeans since they are so soft (the fabric feels like pajamas) and I find the fit to be flattering .  When I spied the Wine colored Stilts, I was taken by the rich color which is perfect for fall and winter.  Then I touched the fabric, and it’s called sateen.  Very lush to the touch like velvet or a very fine corduroy wale, but without the ridges.
The costume jewelry from BCBG was for fun and I got 2 of the same bracelets so I could wear them together.  The dome ring is a great cocktail ring and it’s very comfortable to wear.
I got my Steve Madden order last week and I love both pairs of the Madee smoking/tuxedo flats.  They were true to size (I can wear a 7.5 or 8, but I picked a size 8 for both).  They are pretty comfortable and they make my outfit dressy without trying.  The Flankk moto boots were cute, but they are too big for me so I will be returning them to the store.  I ordered a size 8, a 7.5 would fit better for sure (my heels move around too much) but the soles are heavy.  Heavy soles wreak havoc on my knees.
I canceled the order for Steve Madden Pembrook boots because it was backordered until the end of October.  I don’t want to wait that long.  But, I found another dupe for the Isabel Marant Dicker bootie:
They’re cheaper than the Steve Madden Pembrook, about $20.  They also come in a brown color too:
I also found a cheaper dupe for another designer pair of boots on the Report Footware website–woo hoo!  Lanvin’s hidden wedge heel knee boot goes for about $1,000, price is dependant on the color and whether the boot is suede or leather.
Report again comes to the budgetary rescue with its Waldron boot for $100.
Anyone have a favorite purchase to help ring in the cooler temps?  I’d love to hear about it!
p.s.  Thanks to my 3 blog followers, yay!  I am so dumb with this blogger dashboard, I can’t see who they are.  But I really appreciate it nonetheless.  🙂
