This time of year I think we can all agree, saving money is a plus! But what if we are pining after the perfect pair of riding boots? (ahem, me!) What’s a budget-minded girl to do when Frye Melissa Button boots seem to be screaming my name?
Well leave it to Target to create something similarly drool-worthy for way less! I should have known!
The Frye Melissa Button Boot retails for $328 and comes in a whopping 17 different colors of beautiful leather.
The Merona Kasia Boot from Target retails for $69.99 (gasp!) and comes in black, brown and cognac (lighter than it sounds).
I was very pleased to learn that the Target Merona Kasia Boot compared very nicely to the Frye Melissa as far as shaft height, heel height, leather outer, etc. Now sure, the Merona Kasia has a man-made interior lining vs. the real leather of the Frye (you do get what you pay for after all) but face it, for the amount of money you are saving it very well may be worth it! Target is even offering a buy one get one half offer on many items (Kasia boots included) until midnight on 11/16 with free shipping when you spend $50! Even more savings!!!! Two pair for $105!
My local Target wasn’t fortunate enough to have the boots in stock when I went to stalk them. I have read many reviews online though saying they are more of a pebbled leather than smooth. I have also learned that they are extremely comfortable to many wearers.
What do you think? Have you tried the budget-friendly Merona Kasia boot? Is the savings worth it over the Frye Melissa Button? Chime in, let us know what you think! Here is a comparison of the two different pairs:

It’s that time! Time for the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale!
Beginning November 2 and running through November 13 customers can shop and save at this highly-anticipated sale as well as earn double points from November 2-5 on all purchases made with a Nordstrom credit or debit card. Are you a cardholder? If so you can actually shop this sale early starting October 31 and Nordstrom will hold your purchases for you until November 2. Lucky!
The Half-Yearly sale in November is always focused on women and kids merchandise. (men get their chance in December, don’t worry) And while I don’t know exactly which items will be marked down I can tell you this, discounts will start at 33% off and you will find savings on a great selection of fall merchandise up to 50% off as well! Nordstrom has also been known to add additional markdowns as the sale wears on but that doesn’t mean you should hold out until the last days hoping for bigger savings. The best stuff always sells out quickly so buy it while they have your size!
Some of the designer brands slated to be on sale are Marc by Marc Jacobs, Nike, Rag & Bone, Tory Burch, Diane von Furstenberg, Cole Haan, Kate Spade and many more. So shop early for the best selection and keep in mind these will be the lowest prices of the season at Nordstrom. Take advantage of the sale and remember to shop for loved ones for the upcoming holidays as well as for yourself!
