So my aunt gave me a pile of boots last year. I tossed most of them but when I was recently moving out I was trying on all my clothes and came THISCLOSE to tossing a pair of over-the-knee boots into the donation pile.
About a week later I was going through a pile of Sept issues and I see all this coverage of the 2oth anniversary of Stuart Weitzman's 5050 boot. And I was like THOSE ARE THE BOOTS! I looked them up, they're like 600 bucks!
I came close on that one.
