Splurge vs. Steal: OTK Boots
October 01, 2014

Two over-the-knee styles. Two prices. How can you possibly choose? Do you invest in a classic boot in a sensible color that you’ll wear for seasons to come? Maybe take a risk on a leopard print with a more wallet-friendly price? These thoughts weigh on the minds of all Shoe Lovers at some point in their lives, so you’re not alone. At the Home Office, we’ve discussed at great lengths all the possibilities and created a handy guide for everyone to use when making these monumental closet choices.

Thinking about going for that luxe pair of over-the-knee boots? Get the credit card out if:

 Your wardrobe is FULL of amazing riding boots, booties, and more collected from seasons past, and you really just need one new pair this go-round.

 You’ve always bought super trendy boots, but now you need a classic, wear over-and-over again style.

 You’ve reached a major milestone this year: new job, new baby, graduation—any achievement, big or small, deserves to be celebrated with new shoes!

 You’ve also got your eye on a new handbag...and a wallet…and those black heels. Don’t wanna max out that budget!

 You’ve been saving forever for that designer handbag, so some black boots at great deal will be a safe bet (and will still look fab with your new arm candy!).

 That closet of yours needs a serious fashion overhaul, so you’ll be picking up several new things this season.
