Costume National Lace-Up High Heel Booties
We've all encountered those accessories that can "make" an outfit, but there are some accessories that can actually transform an outfit. That's a whole different kind of effect. One that's pulled off perfectly by these gorgeous boots.

These Costume National Lace-Up High Heel Booties are definitely transformative. Add these booties to any regular fall ensemble and instantly the whole look is darker, edgier and just a little more likely to be spotted downtown. Imagine with me... skinny jeans and a crew neck cashmere sweater. A rather simple, classic outfit. Now add these boots... poof! Suddenly the slim lines of the pants and the iconic cut of the sweater have become almost subversive. It's like magic. I consider that kind of specialness totally worthy of a splurge.

The Costume National bootie is made from calfskin with a 4.25" heel and .75" platform, for the feel of a 3.5" heel. Not bad. These fun boots will see you through all of Fall and Winter, adding spice to your outfits all the while. Do a little fashion math and the cost-per-wear definitely works out well.
