OOTD: Christmas Boots + My Super Sale Splurge

I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas. I know I did! I really wasn't expecting to get a lot of presents this year for some reason, but I got more than I thought I would. Even if I didn't I still would've been happy because I love spending time with my family and that time is far more valuable than presents. This is a time to celebrate Jesus' birth and all that He's done for me.

I felt really pretty in this outfit. The Discovered Lace Dress is my fave even though I didn't think it would find itself in my closet. The day it went on sale I went to my local store not thinking that I would find it, but I found one all alone but it was a size 0. In dresses I'm usually a 4/6 so I didn't have high hopes, but it actually fit pretty well so of course I snatched it up.

Along with this amazing dress I wore the ever so unique and fashion forward Studded Scale Boots. When these boots appeared on the website my jaw dropped for two reasons: the uniqueness of the boot and the price! $748?!! Yeah right..these didn't even find a place on my special wishlist of things that I was for sure going to get because I never dreamed that I would be able to get these boots on 1st cut. When the huge sale hit I called customer service and asked the price of a bunch of shoes/boots and I just on a whim asked about these. Lo and behold they were on sale and there were 2 left in my size. I quickly panicked because with the additional 25% off promotion I could quite possibly bite the bullet. To make a long story short, but amazing dad paid for half of the price for Christmas so all I paid was a whopping $150! SCORE!!! I was a bit worried because after I placed the order, I read the reviews and they said that they run a whole size too big and I'm a normal 7.5 and ordered the 38, but when they arrived I felt like Cinderella! Can I just say that these boots are divine. Pretty much all the females at our Christmas party were eyeing and ooing and ahhing over these beauties. Best. Purchase. Ever.

Here's me and my favorite (and only) nephew.

On to the HUGE sale. Boy did that hit me hard! I'm a bit embarrassed to post all my sale picks, but I will anyway! With the additional 25% off and the free shipping it was impossible for me to stand my ground. So here are my picks...
  • Loose Rein Boots
  • Hallowed Halls Oxfords
  • Studded Scale Boots
  • Sculpted Anemone Cardigan
  • Peppered and Striped Skirt
  • Wightwick Manor Dress
  • AG Stevie Cords in wine and grey
I'm also thinking about getting the Plaited Pocket Cardigan in the red and although it's not on sale, I really want the Feather-Clasped Belt. I have both on hold and am stalling to pull the trigger, but I have until today to pick up any sale picks since the 25% off promotion ends today. Oh yeah, and about the whole Anthro sale price change massacre, I was affected only with the Sculpted Anemone Cardigan which CS and several SA's heard my roar about. My Peppered and Striped Skirt had small holes in the back and I paid only $30 for the skirt with a damage discount so I felt that it balanced out the higher price of the cardigan. Regarding everyone else's horrible experiences, I was appalled at how Anthro behaved but what can we do. Hopefully they have learned their lesson. Wow, I've written a lot. Time to get back to work! I sure hope there's not another sale tomorrow!!
