Sunday Steals: Frye Harness 12R Leather Riding Boots on a Budget

Kitty cats, to your left do yourself a favor and take a gander at Frye’s glorious 12R Leather Riding Boots; to your right allow your eyes to gaze upon the magnificence that is Mossimo Supply Co.’s Katherine Leather Engineer Boots.

While the Mossimo marvels are a slighter lighter shade of brown than the fantastical Frye’s; for a mere $49.99, in comparison to the $218.00 needed to make Frye your own, they feature the very same sophisticated cowgirl aesthetic of the originals, at a price that is far more pleasing for the budget fashionista’s pockets!

What’s your bank account telling you to do, kittens? Will you be a big spender with Frye, or play the role of the thrifty fashionista?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Bloomingdale’s and Target for the pictures.

Oh..so much a like. Really. My bank account isn't made for expensive boots though. & I think Target will do me just as well.

So nice to know this information.

So amazing. Thank goodness for Target.

Definitely, think the thrifty one will hold up to the elements. I loved my boots I got from Target last year..and they are still ready for another year.

I love the Mossimo version of the boots. There were also boots like those at Payless. I'm going to be thrifty here and maybe splurge on a couple of pairs. Hope you have a good Sunday.

Mimi said...

Nothing says it's fall than a great pair of boots perfect for jumping into a big pile of leaves. These are so great!

chaoskontrolowany said...

Ohh, love it!

Juliana AKA Jules said...

Joanne said...

Love this look, there's nothing like a pair of Frye boots.

Lily Johnson said...

Love them both. My pocket prefers the cheap ones though. Take care dear.

Grace said...

I'd kind of been wanting some boots like this, but I didn't really want to splurge on Frye's. So thank you!

Anaiz said...

Oooh I like! Prefer the color of the Frye version :D

Nikolett said...

Ahh love both of these boots! I have so many darker ones, I'm in the mood for some browns ... and I'm going to ignore the $218 price tag and go for the Frye ones :) Hope you've had a great weekend!

INTRO TO MY LIFE said...

It's crazy when you think of the price of fashion but I love it

Dancing Branflake said...

I am soooo going to Target! I love that store- and their shoes last forever!

365 Fashion Rehab said...

The Mossimo boots look so much like the Frye ones it is crazy! I have to say Frye all the way though, they will last you a lifetime (if not that long, at least 5 years) where the Target ones would probably just last the season (I assume they aren't leather). Love, A

Rachel said...

Both pairs look great! But I think I'd go for the Frye just because I'm sure they're a better quality than the Mossimo pair. Plus, I always hear such great things about the Frye boots!

Elle said...

The Target pair is totally worth it! They look like the Frye's but I think they're actually a little more comfy and a little less clunky!

Fashionography. said...

They're very similar, but there's just something about the Frye ones that I loke more!

city girl said...

I love Mossimo! He makes the cutest stuff, for the greatest prices.

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Nice alternative! Good find :)

jess said...

I've been looking for similar boots for so long. Great picks.

Emily said...

I think the Frye pair have my heart!

xoxo

Celeste said...

Wow great find! I've been dying for Frye boots but now I'll just head on over to Target :)

Mimi said...

Style Eyes said...

What a find. I would definitely go for the cheaper ones (if I could fit any more shoes in my wardrobe).

Miss Caitlin S. said...

ooo, I like the Mossimo one but I would go Frye today! $218 dollars isn't that bad for a well-made boot!!!!

Josie said...

Perfect match! So chic.

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

Really great find! Happy Monday!

Maddy said...

I would love it if you helped me find a cheaper alternative to the JCrew boots I posted on Friday. I love them, but at $350, they're a little over my price range.

Rocio said...

I'll take a pair of Mossimo boots any day! I love Target hehe;)

this free bird said...

Erika. It's official. You are the queen of boots and boot finds. This is a serious jackpot!!

Sara said...

I'm going to have to go with the Frye boots on this one! I just think the material is so important on these boots. Love them!

Alexis Renee said...

So cute!
I love them both, but, since my wallet wears the pants in this relationship, I'll have to go with the Mossimos.
Which is not that much of a loss, as they are simply adorable!

Cindy Whitehead said...

those look darn close - I have the Frye's and seriously thought you flopped the pics by accident! WOW!

E said...

Wow, again, blown away by your shopping cleverness. Never cease to amaze...

Tamanna A. Shaikh said...

Fryes are such a steal for 50 bucks! Just what I maybe needing!

ana said...

Oh, My Darling said...

I'm torn! I just love Target, but ooooh, Frye makes the best boots ever!
