urban, you're ruining my vintage high

A lot of you tweeters have said Urban's latest catalog looks very blogger-inspired. Well, I haven't seen it--all the copies at the store were gone!--but I did find an example of what you meant first hand.

EXHIBIT A: THE THRIFTED


You might remember from an earlier post how proud I was to find these babies after a winter of hunting for boyish booties. I was thrilled that, after all the hard work, my pair had the extra perk of cute fringe.

EXHIBIT B: THE MASS-PRODUCED

[$78 on the web; I swear the pair I saw in store were $58]

These fringed beauties were just chilling in the shoe section of Urban last week. Don't these look familiar....damn!

What's better, you think? Hunting and spending an extra $20-40 for mine [that's NYC "vintage" prices for you, but they are real leather, at least] or strolling into UO and getting the PVC pair anyone can have?

This is so frustrating! I swear, I just came across the perfect pair of justin boots JUST LIKE THESE in the same color! Boo. I hope these disappear quickly so we can continue to love our finds. :-/

I spent ALL winter buying and returning lace up boots just like those cuz I just couldn't find the perfect pair. I'm running over to UO tomorrow to see if there are any left! Thanks for the tip :)

That must be annoying, but I have to say that your pair are definitely better (in every way). SO I think spending the time to find the perfect pair beats picking up some at UO (even though we don't have UO in Norway and would love to have it here!)
