  3. Katie says...

    These are beautiful boots. I love the Chelsea Heel boot.

    I have been looking for a Lana boot for years and couldn’t seem to find one in the right shade of brown AND the ideal heel until now! If I won this prize I would have to share the winnings with my sister-in-law. EVERY year she asks my opinion on her winter boot purchase and I swear EVERY year the “new” pair she picks is exactly the same as the year before. She needs to branch out and I think these are right up her alley!

    P.S. Several months ago I wrote in asking for a piece on ethical clothing brands and I love that you continue to feature designers and brands that align with your readers’ interests and values. Bravo and Happy Holidays to all of you!

  56. Sarah says...

  57. Rebecca says...

    I adore my Nisolo huarache sandals in brandy so much that I recently bought another pair in almond – they are so versatile I can wear them with jeans or sundresses all summer (which is 9+ months long in Tampa!). The best part is that they hide my toes while still being breathable, so I don’t need to stress about the status of my last pedicure – eep!

    Next up I am looking to add the Ava ballerina flat in black to my collection – talk about a stylish and classic look!

    Absolutely the Kyrgies and the James oxford. I’d share with my sister, who is unlikely to treat herself and deserves the world.

  71. I’d go with the classic low-heel Chelsea boot — I don’t wear heels much, so it’s always great to find comfortable low-heeled shoes. I’d share this with my husband, who has trouble finding good shoes for himself.

  72. Carrie says...

    I’ve wanted the Classic Chelsea boots ever since you first posted about them here on your blog, but I haven’t pulled the trigger yet! I would probably share the prize with my husband — we haven’t purchased any new clothes/shoes in a while and could both use an upgrade and refresh!

    I love the classic Chelsea boot, what a beautiful spin on a timeless style!
