My justification for these Packable trip Boots in military Red (they’re $150, OMG!) by hunter is that El Niño is coming/almost here, and I’m not about to mess with El Niño, man.

If The Niño is going to unleash his wrath on my feet and the surrounding area, I need to be prepared. Plus, hello! — they’re red, so they’ll match MAC Velvetease Lip Pencil in Anything Goes, my new favorite red lipstick.


Having red rain boots to match your red lipstick is of the utmost importance! I know you feel me on this!

Also, they’d match the little red lipstick kisses on this sweater I got from A Pea in the Pod last month (on sale, haaay).

I can’t seem to find it on their site anymore, but if you’re moved by it, it might be on the rack in their stores (here’s a link to their store locator). It’s warm, comfy, isn’t scratchy (because nobody has time for scratchy sweaters), and I’d still want to wear it if I wasn’t pregnant.

So, back to the boots… get this! After lusting after them and dreaming about them (and holding on to a Nordstrom gift card for months), I finally chose I was going to pull the set off online today, but when I checked the site, my size 7 was completely sold out.


Do any of you savvy consumers have any tricks to track down Nordstrom products that are noted as sold out online? I was thinking about calling the store to ask them to check one of the computers to see if they have any size 7s that can be shipped to me? Does that ever work?
