I cannot street-team hard enough for 15dollarstore.com. Yes, you have to sift through loads of stuff. But there are GEMS to be had, and you just cannot beat the price! Most of my staple denim has come from there and one of the greatest coups was this pair of Two Lips ankle boots.
It all started back when Lucky magazine did this “The Art of Layering” article and featured the Kensie Girl “Mallie” boot. Oh man was I hot to trot for these things, I went out and bought socks just like this and wore a bunch of different takes on this outfit.
The problem–these boots were nowhere to be found. I couldn’t find a reasonable facsimile for the life of me. Since then, Joie came out with the “Elvis” boot, similarly sold out everywhere but who cares cos I cannot pay over $200 for shoes.
Enter 15 Dollar Store to the rescue! I got the brown ones pictures above as well as the black ones, and I cannot tell you how many compliments I get on them. They are real suede! My only requirement for shoes! And they were $15!
They still have a few pairs in grey if you are a size 6:
They also have my favorite J & Company skinny jeans, they are the best!
Romeo & Juliet Couture is hit-and-miss to say the least, but you can’t argue with the fact that they are damn spendy at regular retail. So go knock yourself out cos 15 Dollar Store gets looooads of R&JC.
Phew! OK, 15dollarstore, I will now officially step off of your jock.
