To tell the honest truth, I can’t go for very long without buying a new pair of shoes. To tell the truth again, I cannot remember the last time I actually paid full price for something. I’m a sale and discount fiend and it spoils me to get amazing things at a lower price. But just because I’m a good bargain shopper doesn’t mean I don’t have a shopping problem…
When I was in NY last week I managed to make it down to the Village and stop by Otte, a great boutique I’ve been wanting to check out ever since I’ve seen the bloggers at Stripes & Sequins and eat.sleep.wear wearing their sweaters. Otte carries some other great brands besides its proprietary line, and I managed to snag a few things at their winter sale. I found burgundy/oxblood wax-coated jeans from Current/Elliott in my size and these slightly odd, slightly whimsical booties from Acne on major, major discount. Never one to scoff at bold shoes, I just couldn’t help myself. Now I need to find an excuse to wear them out this weekend – Austin is so casual sometimes!

All this shoe talk reminds me of one of my favorite Prince songs, Kiss. This lyric is hilarious but also has a lot of truth in it. Amen, Prince.
Also, can we please just notice how before his time Prince was back in ’86? Already rocking the crop top + suit look.
