First of all, I was really torn on which brand of rain boots I should buy. I've seen the Hunter boots on many celebrities and fashionistas but since I knew I would not be able to pull them off.. PASS. Then I went on to fawn over a couple of different rain boots from Burberry but since I knew I would not be able to afford them.. PASS. There were four other designs that I considered as well as making a very difficult decision in which color to buy the Tretorn boots in. After a lot of thought and asking a bunch of people, I finally bought this pair of yellow Tretorn Skerry rain boots from DSW for $48.66 including tax and free shipping.
So.. HOW CUTE ARE THESE RAIN BOOTS? As soon as I opened the box, I was squealing with joy and excitement and could NOT wait for the next rainy day to wear these outside. I had first seen these on a Korean soap opera called Triple last summer. They looked PRECIOUS on the actress and I looked everywhere for these in Korea last June/July. They were all sold out online so I ended up forgetting about them for a whole year..
About two weeks ago, I saw them again while perusing various Korean fashion blogs and I went on a rampage to find these! Suprisingly, they were sold in many online stores so I purchased these about a week later in yellow. As of now, I am so much in love with these boots that I am considering purchasing them in another color. Below are the other four that I considered buying.
