Blue Velvet Booties With Octer + WW Link Up

I love to shop.  In fact, I love it so much, that I made it my job.  However, when I am on the hunt for an item (e.g. velvet booties), but not sure which specific pair I want, researching can take up a lot of time.  Time that I'd rather spend playing with my kids.  I want to find the best product at the best price, and jumping from one website to another can be a bit tedious.  Thankfully, I was introduced to Octer, an online marketplace that does all this work for me, and it has changed the way I shop.  With over 200 stores in its database, Octer and will give you search results from different stores all in one place.  Whether you're on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick, the chair that will finish your living room, or in my case, a great pair of velvet booties, Octer will give you the options from different stores to compare.  You simply type in the product that you're looking for (you can narrow it down by price) and voila, the options are right in font of you.  Since I was on the hunt for a pair of velvet boots, I decided to give it a test.  Not only did Octer show me a bunch options all within my price range, but it pulled up velvet boots from stores I would never think to check.  I was debating between two pairs that were in my search results, and decided to go with these Steve Madden velvet beauties since there were so many great reviews on them.  I don't think that I could be happier with my choice!  

I decided to keep my look simple by wearing all blue, and love how the different textures looked paired together.  I'm also quite obsessed with this blue coat!  I wish everyone a great weekend.
