Fashionista Friday: Fall in Love with Jenny’s Dolce Vita Booties

Finding today’s Friday Fashionista’s Goodwill treasures on Instagram has me thinking about fall shoes and what kinds I should add to my closet this upcoming season.

Recently, Jenny scored what looks like a new pair of expensive and great quality Dolce Vita suede booties from her local Goodwill for pennies on the dollar.

I. must. find. a. pair. like. these.

What caught my eye and made me fall in love was the two tone java color and the leather wraparounds. The straps especially add a nice rustic touch with a metal buckle to these footwear beauties and turn a what could be plain pair of booties into one that are more playful for the fall. They also have a low stacked heel making it easy to wear for every occasion. You don’t have to worry about your feet hurting!

I would rock these with a pair of dark colored skinny jeans — blue, black, or purple. On top, I’d go for plaid or a more casual blouse — something that can be worn during a leaf-filled fall stroll. Either way,  a boho or punky could work — the colors and style are versatile and meet both ends of the style spectrum.

I personally wouldn’t wear these with a dress. Booties with a smaller heel worn with a dress that hides part of my legs cut off my ankles and shorten my legs, making me appear even more petite than I already am. I’d opt for a pant and bootie combo instead; skinny jeans usually tend to elongate my legs. If you do have longer legs though, I’d totally go for experimenting with a dress or skirt.

If you check out Jenny’s Instagram, you’ll discover she has a great eye for color , vintage patterns, and textures. Here are other gems from her feed!

Jenny scored this beautiful, bright, and summery red dress from her local Goodwill earlier this summer. Although it is for warmer weather, you can transform it into a fall staple with simply a jacket and boots!

Isn’t this photo is gorgeous? It’s so playful and eye-catching! After all, who doesn’t love Keith Haring, pop art, and Goodwill dresses!
