So what do you think? Is this going to be the hot new boot? Personally, I can’t see myself running to Holts’ today to buy a pair (and of coarse the $500-$900 price tag has nothing to do with it)….and if I did have that kind of cash to spend on a pair of Jimmy Choo’s, these would not be it! I like to add personality to my wardrobe with fabulous shoes and accessories, but this is TOO MUCH personality for me to handle.
