i've been lusting over (for weeks ) owning a pair of suede, short, wedge boots. my dilemna was not whether i should purchase them, but which ones would i purchase. i've examined carefully, at length, boots online, in the stores, and while reading my favorite catalogs and magazines. and then...two weeks ago, while shopping my local tjmaxx i spied with my little eye, a pair of suede boots waiting for me to love them. i hurried to try them on (you know that rush of excitement that comes over you when you first see something you love) and while admiring them on my feet i hear another shopper lend the remark, (as always my experience when i'm in tjmaxx) "oh i love those, where did you get them?" so, i pause, and in my mind i'm thinking, right here in the shoe department where you're standing, but i refrain from responding like a "bitch" because karma can be a bitch, too! the style, color, and construction of the boot was exactly what i was in search of, hence, they followed me home. and i since have learned these boots are offered in a platinum/grey, berry/burgundy and black colors too, so i'm considering purchasing the platinum/grey ones. i love boots, i love coats, i love scarves and hats. well, i really love all things when it comes to clothes but that's another post entirely. come spring 2012, i'm attending NYFW come hell or high water!

(and i found these)
(and these too!)
(and what would a day at tjmaxx be without a new purse?!)
(disclaimer: not all shoes were purchased at my local tjmaxx stores, on the same day. all items were purchased the months of july and august (though none worn yet - smile) the cheetah peep-toe, wedges were purchased in boston. what i know is tjmaxx stores primarily carry the same merchandise. some stores will offer unique finds based on the statistical characteristics of the population.
