Kelsi Dagger Shoes! Worth the Splurge...

Believe it or not, shoes are always the most frustrating item for me to buy on my shopping list. The reason for this is because I seem to have the worst luck with every pair I buy. I am that girl who will be running late to class in the rain, and when she is almost there her heel will break! (yes that has happened to me before)

Part of the reason for my bad "luck" however is that I am bargain shopper. I have a difficult time buying any pair of shoes that aren't from Target or Marshalls. Up until recently I had never bought a pair of shoes for myself over $50. However, after all my broken heels, jammed zippers, and painful blisters I have come to the realization that it is worth the investment to buy a quality pair of shoes even if it means dropping a little more money than you expected. Recently, I came across my new favorite brand- Kelsi Dagger.

I was looking for a pair of practical, yet stylish boots that could handle with winter weather in Boston... This is the pair I found!

Kinda grunge, but still more feminine than most combat style boots I've seen! They aren't too clunky/massive, but they are still sturdy enough to stand up against winter weather! Not to mention, they do not have and zippers to get jammed or spike heels to get stuck in the Boston sidewalk grates! Maybe now I can make it to class on time...

Here are a few others I was tempted to buy... As you can see, the heels on these made them a little more unpractical for everyday use.

I am predicting that my next splurge on shoes will be an "over the knee" style boot like this one with the buckles running all the way up the leg... very sexy!

I was surprised how much I liked this brown leather pair... Brown is a color I never am initially attracted to when it comes to fashion. Black is always my first instinct! However, this one took me by surprise! I love how it's casual, but still has a 4 inch glam heel!

This one was actually my favorite... but not what I was looking for! The open toe would be silly in the winter.

I may have to order this last pair after I get my next paycheck... I've been wanting a new pair of heels to go out in, and these skyscrapers would definitely be a show stopper! I love the snake skin pattern.... and I'm a sucker for black as I hinted at previously!

Another great aspect of the Kelsi Dagger brand, is that all the shoes run big. This is great for girls like Meggasus and I who have feet on the larger size and are sometimes limited with our options. (another reason as to why shoe shopping is frustrating.) However, the boots I bought fit perfectly and I couldn't be happier with them :)

Which of these is your favorite style? Let us know what you think!

I hope you all have a lovely Thanksgiving!

I saw someone wearing the first pair recently (someone with excellent style) and I commented on how much I loved them. They are boots with attitude.
