Rather than wax poetic about today’s ensemble, I’ll just cut right to the chase: THESE BOOTS WERE FREE!

It was a perfect storm of leftover holiday giftcards and an end-of-season clearance sale that brought these beauties into my life without me having to spend a dime. But to be honest, even without the giftcards they still would have been a steal at just $49 in-store (marked down from over $300). And as an added bonus, they’re actually pretty comfy. Thumbs up to the manufacturer for adding extra-cushioning at the ball of the foot.

I’m a career gal, living in NYC while attempting to climb the corporate ladder one fashionable footstep at a time. I always dreamed of a glamorous job in the fashion industry, but instead I became a technology geek and now spend most of my days talking bits and bytes with IT Directors. Even though khakis and polos are the standard uniform within my industry, I prefer dresses and high heels. The only fashion rules I follow are to have fun and keep it classy… everything else is fair game! I look forward to sharing both my on- and off-duty looks with the Curly Nikki community each week. I am literally ALL OVER the web, and you can connect with me via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, and Pinterest.
