Shoes of the Week!
In Canada, it is inevitable that the cold weather is coming. So when Fall hits, I start shopping for boots. I may not enjoy the cold but at least I can make it a little more fun by buying a new pair of boots. Being on maternity leave, I wanted to buy some new boots but not spend a ton of money on a new pair. So one week when I was down visiting my parents, I took a trip over to Calais, Maine and checked out Marden's. Marden's is a salvage and surplus store that carries many brands; but the key with this store is if you see something you like, buy it, because it will probably be gone the next time you are there!
Marden's has a great shoe section at very affordable prices. The most I have ever paid there for a pair of shoes is $50 and most of the time that is about 1/3 of the retail price! So my new boot purchase was the beautiful above pair of G by Guess booties. They are getting quite worn out from wearing them so much (as I am sure you can see in the photos), but are so comfy. They have a great heel, I love the colour and the chain detail is the perfect embellishment. And at $30 they were a steal! I think they will only last this season but I am so glad I bought them. What is your go to footwear for these cold winter months?
