The Perfect Bootie

Guys, I think I've found a new favorite shoe. Let me set the scene: a few weeks ago I headed to Soho for the launch of Nine West's Vintage America collection, and a few weeks later, these booties were being unwrapped in my apartment (wrapping paper was thrown through the air, shoes held up Lion King style, evil laughs filled the apartment halls....)

Unfortunately, the scene I've just set for you is not at all an exaggeration. These boots are the ultimate summer, winter, fall, or spring staple. I'm already picturing them for date night, long walks through the city, with a long floral dress or with fun patterned pants. Style up or styled down, you really can't go wrong.

UPDATE: I haven't taken the shoes off – literally – for months (and probably to the point of no return). I've spent the last 30 minutes on eBay looking to buy out any and all listings (any color will do, thank you). Someone stop me.
