Neutral Booties Follow-up

Hey guys! Remember when I said my inspiration for neutral booties was “Emily Henderson’s Rachel Comey goes-with-everything shoe collection”? Remember how I said I can’t afford $400 shoes? Well, both of those thing are still true. And all of the boots I shared I still think are great finds, but none of them were quite perfect enough of a match to my vision for me to actually pull the trigger on. There were a couple of pairs I aaalmost went for, but didn’t. I had finally decided I’d live without until I find something “close enough” at a consignment store for considerably less than any “close enough” new options.

Until…

I did a bit more searching of every inch on the web and found these Lucky Brand ankle booties on Amazon. They so wonderfully match my vision—real leather (suede or nubuck would be okay but I really wanted leather), low shaft (I feel like they’re more versatile when the shaft doesn’t go too far above the ankle), a heel between 1.5″ and 2″ (to give me some height, yet still be comfortable), and a simple design (no extra zippers, buckles, embossing, etc).

Their resemblance to the Rachel Comey shoes I can’t afford is actually pretty remarkable (click image for more details). I didn’t realize that until after I had already added them to my cart. I’m sure the Rachel Comey shoes are more buttery and amazing (for $400, they better be), but the Lucky boots are only $28! I haven’t received them yet, but I’ll update this post when I get them. The reviews are mixed, so we’ll see!
