Keep or Return?
I bought these black leather ankle boots by Nine West at DSW after pretty much hating all the other styles on sale. Most of the heels on the boots were well over three inches, which I simply cannot do, mainly because of walking long stretches in Brooklyn and Manhattan, but also because I am 5'9 and while being six feet tall is fun for me (Hello, shorties!), anything over that causes me to feel like a giantess freak.
So I bought these boots because they were comfortable and I could walk in them (the heel height is just under three inches) and I thought they would look good for date night, or any other night, for that matter.
Now the toes seem too square and I'm wondering if I should return these and keep looking because I guess I am really wanting round-toed boots. But which, round-toed ankle and flat heel? Round-toed ankle, with high heel? Lace up? Riding boots? Over the knee? All of which were available at DSW at Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. It boggled my mind how many boots they had, row after row of them.
Unfortunately, the boots I feel deeply in love with weren't at DSW at all but in a magazine. They are by Aquatalia by Marvin K. and cost $495, but I wasn't planning on having any shopping accidents this year in the three-figure range.
But oh, they are pretty. Mama like. Maybe they will go on sale.
