Congrats on your Origami! The brandy is a lovely shade of brown that has some reddish tones in it. On my monitor, the Rockports don't have this rouge tint. Are you close enough to the Mothership that you can swing by a store to check out the brandy Zelda or Madeleine boots?

hmm ok thanks! I liked those rockports bc they are a great price and got good reviews for comfort, I have plantar fasciitis. Yes I do live in NJ - it is still a pain in the butt to get the the city but I do go every once in a while....I might just splurge for Frye Veronicas

^ Oh well in this case, the Rockport boots are really nice looking and if they're comfy to boot *g* then it's win-win! One looks a bit silly if she were too matchy-matchy with her leather colours anyway. Otherwise, I'd get a brandy Trophy bag to wear with my brandy Sonia jacket and brandy Zelda boots. LOL

I'd recommend the Brandy Madelines. The brown Veronica Slouches matches well with HH Brandy bags. They are $130 at Sundance: http://www.sundancecatalog.com/PRODUCT/Outlet/Shoes+&+Bags/Boots/41942.html
Both are comfortable for me.

The Engineers are antoher good option. I love them because they're boots that you don't have to "baby".

Here's a pic w/a cordovan bag. I believe the brandy is less red?

I really like those boots in your link but I live in SW Florida and never get the chance to wear boots so who cares what I think :P

Actually their Engineers are indeed the Veronica Slouches, just renamed under Sundance. I agree, you certainly don't have to baby them at all. They've been in rain and held up well.
Ah, good to know. I thought they were just similar, but came in different colors.

I have some Coach Monika boots (I like to leave the lining tucked in) and they're a near perfect match to my Brandy Dekker. I'd love to find some more casual boots in that color someday, too...good luck with your search!
