Bootie Trends Fall 2014

[ 12 ] October 22, 2014 |

It’s Fall and you know what that means? BOOTS!

Midnight Velvet Bootie Trends for fall 2014 Still Blonde after all these years

The Chief Blonde was sent two fabulous items from our Midnight Velvet :  The Carlos Santana Equinox bootie ($110) and the Soft Sophisticate Top ($50).  Pants are Levis, necklace is handmade. 

FALL FALL FALL!  Not much I love about it  to be honest. I am just a summer person all the way. But as I always try to find the light in everything, one of the shining lights about fall for me is BOOTS and BOOTIES.

Midnight Velvet Bootie Trends for fall 2014 Carlos Santana Bootie

I mean come on! Aren’t these pretty darn fabulous? The Carlos Santana Brand is one of my favorite as it is always edgy but the shoes are super comfortable. Midnight Velvet usually carries several Carlos Santana styles.  Midnight Velvet also has a huge variety of booties in various styles, from low and flat to Western to high and slinky!

Bootie Trends Fall 2014 Details Left to Right, Top to Bottom (all Booties from Midnight Velvet): Black Annie Sleek Bootie ($100), Olive Carlos Santana Equinox Bootie ($110), Brown Restricted Bakersfield Bootie ($100), Dingo Willy Bootie ($140), Bronze Ritual Bootie ($110), Linquette Bootie ($160), Two Tone Boot ($100, Sale $30), Tassle  Zip Bootie ($130), Clarks Christine Tilt Bootie ($150).

Once I figured out how to style these booties, I wanted an edgy top to match the bootie’s style. I chose this Midnight Velvet Soft Sophisticate with peek-a-boo shoulders. Isn’t it just the right blend of sweet and biker chick?

but mostly it’s just a lot of fun to rub elbows with so many amazing bloggers and

experience so much amazing fashion!
