Loving My New Blondo Boots

I recently purchased a pair of Blondo boots from Long Tall Sally and I’m so happy with them. I’m wearing them almost daily! The leather front and the elastic backside make for a very comfortable fit. These boots look great with my jeans and I can also wear underneath my slacks. Being in Canada, a really cool fact for me is that the shoes are made here! I get lots of compliments on these boots and I am delighted to share them with you. -Isabel

My everyday boot from Blondo


Bundle Your Toes

It’s getting nippy outside.  That means our gorgeous fashion boots are not going to cut it in the below zero temps that are on the way.  What’s a girl to do when she want fashion AND function?

Check out these brands that have lovely styles in our sizes but will still keep your toes bundled up in the freezing temps.

Teva Jade Cove Boot $170USD

The Teva Jade boot comes up to size 12 ladies and is waterproof leather.  It also has a microfiber lining to keep your feet warm and comfy on those cold days.

Janey by North Face $155USD

The Janey by North Face only goes up to ladies size 11 but it’s a cute style that will certainly keep you warm over the winter.  Made with a faux fur lining it also has a winter grip sole made to keep you from any mishaps on the ice over the season.

Sorel 88 Boot $170USD

A little more sporty with a fashionable touch, the Sorel 88 boot will guarantee you warmth.  Sorel is known for creating quality winter footwear to keep you dry and warm in sub-zero temperatures.  This boot is the same style designed for the Canadian Olympic team.   Available up to size 12 and in other colours too.

Overall when it comes to staying warm and dry there is a small sacrifice to fashion.  All those funky heels, wedges and pumps look fabulous but, are usually not going to do the best job and keeping the snow and water out while keeping you warm at the same time.

Free Shipping to Canada

For you ladies wearing larger than size 11 Nordstrom has some of the nicest shoes available from a variety of brands.  When you’re in Canada it can be tough to find companies willing to ship because of the fees and cost of shipping.

Well this is your chance to take advantage of a special offer from Nordstrom for the holiday season.


If this isn’t exciting to you I don’t know what else to say.  I am currently not on the continent and won’t be back before the deal is over.  I am pretty upset I am missing this.  

If you’re not on a budget and can afford to splurge take a look at this pair of Jimmy Choo Clue Glitter slingbacks that are exclusive to Nordstrom.  They are available up to a size 42 Europe (11 USA).  A real splurge at $742 CDN. 



I also love this pair of boots below.  It’s the BP Runway boot.  They are sleek and a great pair to keep you stylish through the season.  This pair is $128 CDN. 



Bogs for all Weather

Bogs Classic High Le Jardin ($100 USD) Available to size 12

If you’ve ever heard of Bogs, you know they make boots designed for any degree of weather.  There are times of the year when you never know if it’s going to be rainy, snowy or ice pellets falling from the sky.  Bogs make high quality, 100% waterproof boots constructed to withstand all types of temperature changes.

According to the website the size range goes up to ladies USA 11 (Europe 42).  There are selected styles you can get up to ladies size 12.  But if you go to other websites like shoebuy.com they have listed some styles going up to size 14 ladies.  My guess is they are probably the unisex styles and it’s possibly a men’s shoe being marketed as a ladies style.  That’s just my guess.

Check out the website to find all the styles available up to size 12.

Bogs Classic High Handles ($90 USD) Available up to size 12

Bogs Charlot ($80 USD) Available up to size 12
