Making the most of your boots

If you’re cracking down on your retail therapy this year, and find yourself needing just one pair of boots to last you all season, have no fear!

It’s totally possible to freshen up your boots without shelling out a fortune, and without giving in to another pair of shoes.

I recently came across a piece of genius–fashionable bootstraps by The 2 Bandits. These gals mix the best of jewelry, vintage fabrics, and Western-inspired style to create unique slip-proof straps to wrap around your boots to both tighten the shaft and add major flair.

Some of my favorites include the Solids collection, which uses solid fabric as the strap, with brass charms in front. I particularly enjoy the Revolver. Several other styles include suspender-like straps that fall beneath the tightened strap for extra detail and pizazz, like the Gretel.

But these straps won’t go incredibly well with boots that are already bejeweled. I’d recommend a basic boot that goes well with many outfits and is simple. Try the Sugar Hopstop ($84.95), the 80%20 May ($194.95), or the DKNY Lotta Shine ($204.95), all available now at

These boots are fab because they are incredibly versatile with solid colors and timeless silhouettes. Order a pair today, and wear ‘em all winter!
