12 Days of Gift Guides + Giveaways | Far-From-Basic Booties by Diba True

♪ ♬ ‘Tis the season for boots and booties, fa la la la la, my favorite shoes. ♩ ♫

If you have any question about my favorite type of shoe I’m either failing as a writer or you’re new here. I’ll keep some self-confidence and assume the latter. Hello! I’m Julia, dear new reader, and I’m my happiest when wearing some form of ankle-covering footwear. I don’t have anything against my ankles, but I do walk out of shoes a lot, so me and boots became besties a decade and change back.

I was but a baby blogger when I first worked with a line under the Diba True family of shoes, and I’ve been in love with the brand since. (Uh, hello, they have a sale room the size of the main floor of my house.) Featuring the brands Luichiny, Diba True, and Testosterone, this shoe powerhouse impresses me season after season. My latest obsession: the 70s dream that is the Jilly Ann bootie. Scroll. Admire. Fall in love with shoes with me.

Picking just one pair was so hard; Diba True has some seriously sweet ankle boots this season. Thinking about getting your feet a little gift? I’d go with the Plen Tee, Dance Fever, or Stop By booties myself. And please send me pics so I can live vicariously through your closet. Is that weird? I don’t think it’s weird. We’re just friends. Sole males, even. Get it? I’ll stop.

For Day Three of 12 Days of Gift Guides + Giveaway, Diba True is giving one lucky reader a $50 Diba Shoe Outlet Store gift card! The $50 gift card can be used on any of the brands carried at Diba Shoes Outlet Store: Luichiny, Diba True, Testosterone, or other accessories.

While the winner doesn’t need to be here in St. Louis — if you’re somewhere else in the country, you’ll be able to order by phone! — I’d recommend locals stop by the Diba Shoes Outlet Store. The discounts in-store are fantastic. Right now, in the gigantic clearance room one pair of women’s boots are $50, or you can get three pairs for $100. If you buy a full-price shoe, you can get 25% off an accessory. And men’s sale shoes are $40 per pair or three pairs for $100. Amazing, I know.

You can enter to win the Diba Shoes Outlet Store gift card for the next week. And don’t forget to come back tomorrow for Day Four in the Oh, Julia Ann 12 Days of Gift Guides + Giveaways!

Thanks for sponsoring this post, Diba True. Good luck in the giveaway, everyone! And don’t forget: You don’t have to complete all the entry options in the Rafflecopter widget. From following on social to leaving a comment, each option just earns you an extra entry!
