In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s summer sale season. If you’re looking for deals, there are a slew to be had in San Francisco this weekend. One of my personal favorites?
The 40 percent off boot sale at Collective/Taxi CDC right now. It’s happening through the end of the month. I stopped by earlier in the week to check it out and ended up trying on at least 15 pairs of vintage boots. My mission at the time was to find a flat-footed, lightweight pull-on boot that I can wear with summer dresses.
With boots, the challenge for me is always getting them over my Russian peasant woman calves, and I found that the vintage slouchy 80’s styles often fit much better than brand new boots in mainstream shoe stores. I found two pairs for around $35 each. It’s always lovely when you can get exactly what you want for less than you’d expected to pay and from a local, vintage, eco-friendly source at the same time. That’s what I consider a score.
