Yes, No, Maybe?

You all remember Blaire Walsh, right?



She was our most recent Closet Case (yes, yes, more are coming, I promise!). Well, she's still stylin' and honor of all honors, she asked me for a little wardrobe advice and I figured you could all weigh in. Blaire has her eye on this pair of Frye boots from Urban Outfitters:

They are deeply discounted (from $358 to $249.99), but they're still a pretty hefty purchase. I find this dilemma is coming up more and more in this economic climate. Quality items that used to be way out of my reach are suddenly coming slightly, kinda, sorta, maybe within my grasp. I'm seeing big name items with usually big price tags at discounted rates. I'm wondering, and now Blaire is too, do I splurge on the quality goods? Or, do I save my pennies for the rain-soaked days that may be on the horizon? The Frye boots Blaire has her eye on are notoriously good quality and this particular pair is classic with enough detail to keep them fresh. What do you say, guys? Should she go for them? Should she splurge? Anybody see them for less? For more? Lookalikes? Give Blaire and I your two cents!

I don't think those are going out of style. My sister's been wearing some of the same fryes for going on 4 years.
