For anyone planning to go to Get Outside for rainboots: don't bother! Just got off the phone with them and the sales person said they are pretty much sold out of all brands/styles. They have none of the "good sizes" left.

Their next shipment of Tretorn is in mid-April. They will be getting a shipment of another brand on Monday afternoon. She said they will go quickly.

Last night, I saw a large selection of rainboots with different and very cute patterns at THE BAY at yonge/ bloor. I'm pretty sure they were all on sale!

rainboots are cheap at costco, (like $20) and have really cute patterns?
they look identical to alot of the boots you're paying big bucks for!!!

in other news...


GIRLS!! I NEED YOUR HELP!!

i have a pair of red leather boots, treated many times over, but new this season.

they are starting to look weathered with the wet stain look around the edges.

i tried rubbing it gently but it actually made the cloth RED!

what's a girl to do?

I have blundstones but they give me HUGE blisters :(
Haven't even thought about what I will do when this massive amount of snow melts! Mostly been worried about my place flooding, rather than my feet being dry. hmmmm, I'm poor....so maybe I can just avoid going outside? ;)

where did you get them? maybe go into the store to ask the associates for help? what are you using to clean it?

I got them at Aldo.

Last Time I went to Aldo for help with boots (the cream coloured leather ones) because they were really dirty after one wear! So i went to the place they told me to take them to get profesionally cleaned, who then told them me wouldn't touch them, and I ended up using Magic White Eraser... (thanks tribe) they gave me polish to "keep them nice" in totally the wrong colour. I put the polish on to realise Neutral, Is not off white, or creme, and in fact looks a hell of alot more like brown on my boots. I took them back, and they swore up and down they thought it would work, but "at least they look better than they did. They were almost irreparable".

$300 boots, worn twice, had to be thrown out!

because when I got dirt on them again, they were toast.
Not to mention they had a neutral stain all over them!
AND! some of the leather actually chipped right off leaving holes in the boots.

These red ones- I bought everything for them they told me.

So here we are AGAIN..................

I went to Zellers last night on the way home figuring that if the Bay had boots then Zellers would as well.

Bought a very cute pair that end just below the knee and have a flower pattern for $24. Also scooped up cute plaid sneakers for $8 and ballet flats for $10. SCORE!

Ooh, I should check that out since I could use some new shoes & have no shopping budget. I was in Zellers in the fall for some household stuff and randomly bought a cute pair of suede(ish) grey ankle boots that I was pleasantly surprised by how cute they were.

The rainboot trend is cute, but I have yet to find a pair that I find really comfy like a nice pair of snow boots. They've all been heavy/flat/uncomfortable.

Delias, if you have a friend in the States (or family) do what I did and send it to their address with free shipping. ;)
