old faithful


It may be the time of new, but right now I am really appreciating the old. Specifically my several years-old ankle boots. I am just not over them. I love that I can wear these boots wherever I am, with just about anything. Friends often ask me if they should invest in the original Isabel Marant Dicker boot and I, wholeheartedly, say yes. They are a classic. And so are these inspired guys from Madewell, Aldo, and Steve Madden.

I love my ankle boots and am constantly looking for more...I'm not up to spending on the Dicker but have just added a couple new pairs to the wardrobe this Christmas and look forward to years of enjoyment wearing them. :) Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Marlien! I could not agree more. I finally invested in a pair of dickers several month ago and they have been one of the best purchase I have ever made. They look great with everything and are extremely comfortable. I love the dress in this photo. Do you by chance know who it is made by?

Xo, Allora

Hi Marlien,

Your boots are great but it's your dress I'm really drooling over! Can you share who it's by, please? Thanks so much!

What do you think of Aquatalia Famous booties as an alternative to the Dicker? They are about half the price. Thanks!

The Petty boot from Sam Edleman is a great alternative! They are comfy, great looking and priced right @ $130.

Hi! The dress is by Dahlia Wolf--a steal at $62. You can find it at this link: http://bit.ly/1dJ0NMN

I love these booties. What color do you own? Black doesn't seem to show off the details enough. I am leaning toward taupe, but it's a big investment. Any advice?

Marlien Rentmeester said...

Hi Sandy, I own the taupe color--it's more versatile, in my opinion. It is an investment, but you'll get major mileage out of them.

I'm always weary about spending a lot on shoes - I mean there's little to prevent the common wear and tear! I recently splurged on a pair (although half the price of the Dickers, still a splurge for me!) but almost cried after the first scuff!
