Sometimes you see a trend in a magazine, on the internet, on social media...and ask yourself-- is it fleeting? Is it worth the splurge?
Such was the case with the over the knee red boot that I started to see on the New York runways for fall 2017 collections (way back in spring 2017). By September, I knew I loved it, but I just wasn't sure if it would last.
When I make a trend investment, contrary to the opinion of many, I like to invest in the best version of the trend, instead of the "H&M" version. This way, as the trend starts to evaporate, you don't actually own the trend-- you own a "piece of art" that never goes out of style, rather than a cheap copy that gets thrown in the giveaway pile.
So fast forward when I saw these Valentino boots, I knew destiny was staring me straight in the face. And that's the short tale of how I met my favorite boots. xoxo
