Have you met Kate? I’m sure you have. She’s a hairstylist, crafter, blogger, makeup artist, stylist, cat enthusiast, sister, philosopher, and wife all rolled into one. Oh, and I’ll add friend to this list. I am proud to say that I was Kate’s first friend when she moved to NC. And I am singlehandedly responsible for introducing her to her husband, Justin. Okay, that’s not quite the story, but I like to pretend it is. 🙂 Anyway, Kate is the girl behind The Small Things Blog, and has blown up Pinterest with her adorable, easy DIY hair tutorials. She’s also a sweet friend who inspires me with her love for Christ…not to mention a pale blonde who rocks a bold lip. 😉 When I get together with Kate and her just-as-cute-and-blonde sister, Lauren (From My Grey Desk), and Lauren’s just-as-cute-and-brunette friend (and my new friend) Sam, expect nothing short of chaos. Exhibits A, B, C, D, and E:
Kate mentioned that she fell hard for these Emmy Wedge Boots from Ann Taylor Loft. The only problem? They are $178, which is more than Kate wants to spend. Never fear. Dorothy and Thrifty Thursday are here. Since yesterday’s post was about alternatives to the Frye boot, I made it my mission to also find alternatives to the Emmy Wedge Boot from LOFT. The boot that Kate covets are leather knee-high with a wedge heel. They are detailed with a unique suede side stripe that provides interest and helps lengthen the leg. The wedge is a 3″ stacked wooden heel. The basic silhouette of the slim profile wedge boot is very popular and many online shoe retailers have the option of searching for the specific heel, height, color, and material.
Here are 15 thrifty alternatives I found:
Okay Kate, let me know what you think! 🙂
