I’m not really feeling a lot of the Coach purses this season. The colors and sequins are over the top – even for me. But with this boot, I could finally visualize myself wearing a pair of Coach shoes that were subtle with just a hint of sexy.
These are for our boot-loving readers for the fall days ahead. If the days get gray and dreary, but your shoes are gray and fabulous, it more than evens things out.
Farmers are quirky guys. When they get together, two subjects ALWAYS come up: the cost of fuel and the weather. Mr. R5 has been looking at weather trends and there are indicators that this El Nino winter is here for a while. This means that the southwest United States, particularly Arizona, will have a warm, wet winter with snow in the mountains. For the rest of the country it usually means snow and ice storms that won’t quit till late March. So get ready, folks, it is not over yet.
Retailers have been getting ready for their spring inventory and are beginning to put lots of their winter boots on sale. Now is the time to look and perhaps, buy winter boots. These boots are not sexy, sky high, statement boots, but they will keep you warm and dry in rain and snow and will keep you from falling on your keister as you try to get from the parking lot to your office.
Starting with the higher end but wonderful boots.
Chooka Tattoo City $60 at Dillards
UGG Wallingford $207 at Zappos I know we all say mean things about UGGS, but they keep your feet warm, and they are well made. If I lived in a cold, rainy, snowy climate, you bet your boots I would buy a pair of these.
I am truly sorry for all who are snowed in. I am even more sorry for all who are cold. I am excited to see different weather in Arizona. Sorry about that.
Dillard’s department store is having a super duper online clearance sale. Starting today, you can take an additional 40% off already reduced prices, effectively bringing you down to 80% off the retail price in some cases! Those prices, in my opinion, are pretty darn extraordinary. Since seeing is believing, here are some brands with prices so hard to resist, I didn’t. I picked up both of these Cole Haan shoes and the Sperry Top-Siders before writing about them – I just couldn’t believe the prices and had to put myself into the sales queue first since I know that these will sell out fast (can you tell how excited I am?).
Cole Haan Air Chole in red, pewter, or black; Regularly $195; On sale for $35 (try to beat that price, seriously!)
My darling husband is taking sailing classes. From him, I’ve learned that the Sperry Topsider shoe brand puts out some really practical boat shoes with wonderful soles that will grip well on the boat and have soles that won’t leave ugly black treadmarks.
These Sperry Topsider ‘Coastline’ mary-janes are $28, down from $80 and while they aren’t the most fashionable shoes out there, they will be functional.
Like these Michael by Michael Kors Berkeley T-Strap; Formerly $154, Now $46-$59
or Jessica Simpson Stratia; Regularly $89 now $32
And once you are done with the shoe shopping, dare I tempt you with clothing like this Laundry by Shelli Segal Strapless Pleat-Front Dress which is $62, down from $354.
Okay, I didn’t set out to, but I’m starting to feel like I’m a salesperson right now, so I’ll just leave you to shop in peace now. Happy online surfing!

If you have not yet had your fill of post-Christmas and New Years Day sales, Dillard’s has you covered on affordable shoe fashion.
In addition to today’s Boot Sale, they also have other styles of shoes on sale at 40% off as well.
Some eye-catching options in boots for you to consider:
This first boot just brings to mind the thought of sipping hot cocoa and having cozy conversation with the family in front of a warm fire.
With the quilted fabric and patent contrast, this next one still looks cozy, but has a hint of edge.
This one is all straps and buckle. Super sexy… but the warm brown tones keep it from being too in-your-face and helps keep it’s edge on the more subtle side.
This one (aptly named) has a definite Western vibe. Cute for the gal who loves showing that she’s ‘A Little Bit Country’.
Next, generous fringe for the Boho-Chic Moccasin lover.
Next, throwing me back again to a 1980′s Janet Jackson vibe, are these sexy, kidskin, ‘marching band’ boots.
And, from my favorite Project Runway judge, a straight-up, unapologetically sexy, black leather boot:
As for the shoe and sandal selection? Well, my attention was stolen by some fantastic Vince Camuto Styles. Too bad New Years Eve is already over … Wowza.
I don’t know how long the sales prices are good until … So, hop on over & take a look to see if there is a perfect shoe deal to ring in your New Year.
