Grab of the Week: a pair of trans-seasonal, glam-rock ankle boots

It’s that time of year when you want to take advantage of summer sales, but at the same time prep for your new fall wardrobe. Designer shoe sales can be especially luring in the summer months, but who wants to wait another year to wear beautiful sandals? The solution: hunting for trans-seasonal pieces.

We suggest going for closed-toe shoes that can work year-round (so long as the weather doesn’t actually ruin them). At 50 per cent off, we dare you to walk away from these jagged leather booties by Camilla Skovgaard— reminiscent of Ziggy Stardust — currently on sale at Rac Boutique in Yorkville.

It’s quickly becoming harder and harder to track down this London, England-based designer’s shoes in Toronto, so snatch ’em up while you can.
