Anonymous said: Hey SGS, I'm a long time follower and really appreciate everything you put up! I had a question about boots for you. I am a college kid and go to a school where it snows a lot. I would say I dress pretty preppy. I am looking for some boots that won't make my fits look too casual yet do the job when I am going through snow and rain. Plus I do not exactly have a lot of money to spend. Any suggestions? Thanks, Alex
Snow boots can be pretty tricky, but I’d recommend you take a look at the classic LL Bean Boots. They’re perfect for that kind of weather, and have a very interesting look. I feel you about the money part. For that I’d recommend browsing around AE's catalogue, they also have great stuff.
Even if bean boots/duck boots aren’t your thing I’m sure you’ll be able to find something nice!

I recently bought a pair of these at American Eagle Outfitters (mine are a different color though.) They were on sale and I decided to give them a try.
I know they’re not the same quality as Red Wings, but they’re pretty decent.
I might do a review on my blog soon, so stay tuned!

Almost anything with leather. They will keep you warm while still looking stylish.
I’ve seen Converse has quite a few styles to choose from, but if I had to choose I’d go with a solid colored pair, preferably brown and maybe even black. Something like these.

Congrats on your purchase, I really think those boots look insanely great!
I do blog quite a bit about them, so you can check my blog’s archive and I’m sure you’ll find something. Here are a few examples:
Anonymous said: Hi, I've been following your blog for a while a noticed someone asking about boots. I thought about getting Sorel Mad Boot Lace or the leather Clarks Wallabees for a while but I don't know if it will fit into this whole dressing nicely style. Suggestions?
I think the Mad Boot model looks amazing, to be honest. I’ve already confessed in past questions that I’m not much of a fan of Wallabees, but they work for some people. The important thing here is to wear stuff that makes you feel comfortable. If you like them, try to find a way to wear them that represents your own style ;)
Anonymous said: which one is more popular, clarks desert boot beeswax leather, taupe suede or oakwood suede? I'm having trouble deciding on either one
I think they’re very different from one another, but the three kinds can work. It just depends on how do you wear them, but if I had to choose, I’d go for a pair of oakwood or taupe first.
