Hi there!  It's Friday and my apologies babes, I know I'm a couple of days late for this week's Fatshion Faceoff.  (If you're a first-timer that stumbled here via whoknowswhere, click here to find out what the Fatshion Faceoff is all about!)    School and family stuff have been completely overwhelming lately, and I figured y'all would agree that good grades and sleep would be a reasonable excuse to delay my post a bit.  Anyway, this week's challenge item was chosen by Mouna and she picked... boots!  I've always been crazy about boots, but now that fall is (kinda) here, I'm even more obsessed.  Tall boots, short ones, flat ones, heeled ones, you name it, I want it.  Call me a hoarder, but at least I'm being honest!  Here's how I styled one of my favorite pairs this week:    

jacket (similar), XL - Macy's | dress (similar), XL - Target | bracelet - Forever21 
bag (similar) - H&M | leggings, XL - Old Navy | booties (similar), US 9.5 - DSW

A pair of Isabel Marant-style booties have been on my wishlist for a looong time (you know, because I can't afford $565 for a single pair of semi-trendy boots and whatnot).  I've been scouring everywhere online and this pair was the closest I could find.  So you can imagine how freaking excited I was to come across similarly styled ones by Steve Madden at DSW a couple of weekends ago.  And in the clearance section, no less.  (This would give you a pretty good idea of my reaction!)  Needless to say, they came home with me that very day and have been rarely off my feet since (well, except for showers and sleep, duh).  ;)

Now that you've seen my Fatshion Faceoff, make sure to visit the other girls' blogs to see what they did this week (if you haven't already!).
