Splurge or Save: Fringed Boots

When I saw these amazing Minnetonka boots on Tieka of Selective Potential, I knew I needed them in my life. But I wasn't thrilled with the nearly $100 price tag. However, I found this look-a-like from the Lauren Conrad line at Kohl's for half the price. And dare I say that I think the LC version is a little cuter?

Save with the Kohl's boots
Splurge with the Minnetonka boots
Check back tomorrow to see how I styled them!!

Linking up with Sharon and Tara for their awesome "Look What I Got" link-up! Check out other great deals from around the blogosphere!

I had bought a pair of very similar looking boots at Wally World form the Miley Cyrus/Max Azria collection, but was so disappointed because they were made so poorly. I know they were like, $15 but I expected them to hold up more than a week!I love the LC ones more. The texture is a little smoother looking. I like suede, but not fuzzy suede! It just looks cheap and Minnetonka isn't cheap (to me.) Very good find!

Sometimes, I'm a impulse buyer and I'm pretty sure in this instance I would've splurged and bought the Minnetonka boots. I have to say the Kohl's boots look pretty awesome though. Can't wait to see how you styled them.

The Kohl's version looks like it is of much better quality, too. Definitely cute.

Any recommendations for boots for wide calf girls? I am dieing for a pair of riding boots, but can't find any to fit.

Great find! Did you try on the Minnetonka ones by any chance? I've been planning to order a pair with a gift card I won in a giveaway, but I'm worried the calves won't fit!

I didn't. I'm sorry!

Here are links to two blogs who have posted recently about wide calf boots! I think they can help you find exactly what you want!

Not my favorite to be honest... I don't think I have that hippie-chick vibe in my fashion!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thanks, Tori!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you so much, Kal!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Right? I couldn't believe it!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I had a pair of Minnetonka boots YEARS ago, and they were wonderful, so it would have been a worthy splurge!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I think the quality on the LC boots is super. And the sole seems much sturdier on the LC!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you so much for the reminder!!!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I'm afraid I'm not very inspiring with my look in the boots!

Heather said...

Man I love kohls - they are a great find - and can't wait to see what you do with them :)

Yep! Yet again I think the splurge item is cuter. LC's are a better color and I like the base better. They look more comfy too! Kohls for the win :)

Leighleigh Uzumaki said...

It does indeed. I'm putting these on my Xmas list.

Virginia said...

I have always loved the way Minnetonka's look, but I have never bought any because they have absolutely no arch support. Looks like maybe the knock-offs do.

Jupe_Cambria said...

Oooooh I've been eyeballing these fringe style boots too....and love that you found a pair cheaper than those Minnetonka ones. Can't WAIT to see how you style them!
