I pretty much left you hanging after posting about the Great Ankle Boot Search of 2012. Sorry ’bout that.
Turns out – I DID find the perfect boots. When in New York last month, I just happened to stroll by Isabel Marant’s boutique in Soho. (Meaning I googled her store, mapped out the best walking directions from the hotel, and carved out a portion of one evening to make it over there. All before I even left California, ahem.) I walked into the boutique, requested my size in the Jenny boot, and was told they were sold out. This didn’t surprise me because the boot was impossible to find in that particular color and size (see previous post), so I accepted defeat. The associate sauntered into the back to grab a black pair for me to try on for size, and when she returned she was holding the taupe suede ones. She had found one last pair of the boots. “IT’S A SIGN! IT’S A SIIIIIIIGN!,” I yelled. (In my head, at least.)
And that was that. I bought ‘em, and I love ‘em. Yes, they were well above the price I wanted to spend, but I pooled together my holiday cash and pulled the trigger. And let’s just talk about ROI for a second. I’ve worn these boots almost every day since. With skinny jeans, rolled up boyfriend jeans, J. Crew Minnie pants, long accordion pleat skirts, you name it. And I love them. I LOVE THEM, WORLD!
Anyway, Jenny boots by Isabel Marant. Best boots ever.
Above are all the boots I tried in an attempt to find the perfect ones.

If you have any questions about any of those boots, let me know. I’d be happy to give you my opinion, and a few are on sale right now.
