Cheaper Find of the Week: Rag & Bone Newbury ooties


In my humble opinion, Rag & Bone’s Classic Newbury Bootie is the perfect go-to fall/winter/spring shoe. With a moderate heel height and a classic style, these cowhide booties can literally be paired with anything. Although they are quite versatile, the price is not so ideal—the famous Newbury bootie starts off at $525 at most retailers. You might be able to find them cheaper on amazon.com, although they will probably be used. Instead of trying to hunt down a discount on the Internet, take a look at Nine West’s almost identical Charnel Bootie for 99.95 at DSW.

Ok, there are some obvious differences. The Newbury bootie is 100% cowhide; the Charnel bootie has a leather upper and synthetic sole. The Newbury bootie features a paneled shaft while the Charnel bootie doesn’t. Nonetheless, for almost $400 cheaper, the Charnel bootie does the same trick and is still a classic, ultra chic boot (see comparison chart below).

Cheaper Find of the Week – Trench Coat Edition


Winter after winter, trench coats remain a classic piece and a hot commodity. If you don’t already have one in your closet, now is the time to get one. Not only do they never go out of style, trench coats can be paired with just about anything that’s already in your closet (dresses, jeans, slacks, ankle boots, tall boots, rain boots, etc).  Burberry probably has THE most iconic, stylish trench coats. However, they come with a hefty price tag. Burberry’s London Mottram Trench is on sale for $746.25 (it normally retails for $995!) at Bloomingdales. If you don’t want to sacrifice rent for a trench coat, take a look at these much cheaper, but just as chic trench coats below:
