Mission Complete

When I go on a mission to find something. I become border line obsessed. And it really is about anything in life. My friends tell me all the time I should be a private detective because I can find out where a dog takes a poop at 3 am if I set my mind to it. 

I for some reason have been into shoes lately. Mainly because I don't have enough just casual wear with jeans shoes but are dressy enough to still be cool and workable. If you have seen my Pinterest boards you will probably see my shoe pins. 

So, here is my muse. I really have been looking and admiring Jennifer Aniston's laid back style. I mean who doesn't love her or a least an outfit or two she's worn. I am traveling on Thursday and have been thinking of what I could wear that's comfy yet still get off the plane ready. I am going to a marketing summit in our Orlando office. It's a laid back atmosphere, business casual type of two days. 

I became obsessed with this outfit and these boots and recreating it to my best ability. Which meant hunting down these boots.





Here's the kicker, the boots are called Azzedine Alaia Leather Lace up boots. These pics are from 2010 and these boots, hold on to your wad's were approximately in the $1000 dollar range. Can I get a big "F" that? So, I went on a mission.

That's right. Another Splurge vs. Steal. And guess how much my little steals are? A whopping $19.99 from Kmart. Pretty good dupe if I do say so myself. 

This private eye is on a roll for finding the deals and my outfit for Thursday's 6 am flight is complete. So what do you think, I did pretty damn good right? Mission Complete. You want me to find something...let me know. I am on it like a duck on a junebug.

Happy Wednesday,
Dusty
