Putting Our Fashion Boots Forward for Fall

It can be hard bidding farewell to those long, warm, sunny days of summer… Believe me, I’ve been painstakingly counting down the days until that estimated first frost hits and the idea of autumn is firmly rooted in my wardrobe. Don’t get me wrong, I love the idea of layering, but my first love has to be boots. I wear boots all year long, spring, summer, fall, and winter. I have a WHOLE storage bin that is solely dedicated to just my collection of boots. I will switch out certain styles from season to season and even retire some that are not currently trending so that I can use them another season. I own over the knee boots, under the knee boots, embroidered boots, embellished boots, boots with studs, vintage boots (my favorite), ankle boots, combat boots, boots with metal, boots with fabric, rain boots, boots that are filled with wear and tear, and my list goes on…

My point here is that boots are the highlight of fall for most fashion forward folks. We live, eat, breath, and occasionally sleep (dream) boots. We follow fashion magazines, online blogs, fashion sites, and can often be caught staring at the feet of everyone we meet when daydreaming about boots.

It’s an addiction, and I’m here to confess that I have an addiction to boots…

Now you tell me, can you imagine yourself all wrapped up in stylish love this fall as you sip coffee and relax in the warm love of you oversized aztec sweater while admiring your new pair of Rido Harness ankle boots from Very Volatile?

Celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens, Blake Lively and even Miley Cyrus know exactly how to outfit a pair of thigh-high socks with boots. I am also a HUGE fan of the girls at Free People! I continually get lost for hours on their BLDG 25 blog.

We wore a pair of thigh-high socks with our Roxy Newton Crochet Combat Boot.

Thigh-high socks look great paired with both tall and ankle boots!

 

Boot Obsessed:

We had featured a few of our favorite boots for fall in our Pre-Fall Fashion Essentials You Can’t Live Without blog along with other cold weather must-have items.  I have to admit that Roxy has impressed me this Fall 2013 season with a wide range of boots that are too cute for words.

Very Volatile Shoes always seems to deliver just the right amount of country-couture meets street-chic, too!

 

The Budget Fashionista:

Okay, admittedly, I am DEFINITELY not a millionaire, I have no ‘black card’ (sadface) and this is just a wild guess, but I am not alone in this. Believe me, my heart goes out to each and every one of my sister friends who have to treat their dimes like dollars. #muchlove

Here’s the light at the end of this dark tunnel, see these boots? They’ve got some pretty awesome brass and buckle accenting and they’re only like $34.90. That’s not a bad price in the boot world. We carry plenty of fashion brands that are reasonably priced for that budget friendly fashionista.

Be sure to keep an eye out for new boots hitting the New Arrivals page at gliks.com, ladies. By the way, got an awesome outfit that features Glik’s apparel? Feel free to hashtag #glikstyle and our @glikclick Instagram account will regram your look, or even feature you on our Glik’s Facebook page

Black Friday

Black Friday. It’s the day after Thanksgiving Day in the United States and is traditionally known as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. On this crazy day, many major retailers will open their stores EXTREMELY early, some even go as far as to open their doors on Thanksgiving (bananas, right?) BUT for the most part, the whole point of (braving) Black Friday is to take advantage of all the promotional sales offered by retailers.

Being that we are a family owned company (115 years strong), we believe that Thanksgiving is meant for being with your family.  This being said, we still think it is fun to participate in Black Friday. Who can say no to a  great deal? Not even us…

Not only are our stores kicking off some fabulous Black Friday specials:

  • $10 off BB Dakota & Jack Clothing
  • $10 off Women’s Fashion Boots
  • Men’s 1897 Denim $29.90
  • $10 off Guys & Girls Hoodie Sale

In favor of those who ate too much turkey and cannot risk leaving their home due to a possible chance of public spontaneous (I-ate-too-much) combustion. We’ve decided to share Black Friday online as well!
