Fall colors are steeped in drama. Case in point the au currant color of Oxblood, aka Merlot, Bordeaux, or Burgundy. This wine-soaked hue is seeped in drama, and looks so good against the plainer Fall colors of greys and browns. My recent boot bonanza, a pre-loved pair of oxblood Miz Mooz boots, looked so good around town, strolling over a cascade of burgundy, red and yellow leaves and a gorgeous grey stony sidewalk.
I had a couple of people ask me for tips on how to score on a pair of (usually pricey) Miz Mooz boots. So I'm going to offer you some tips, but I'm also going to say, that the quality and comfort of Miz Mooz is worth the full price investment if you can afford it.
The following is a quick list of online sources where you can score yourself a pair of Miz Mooz boots.
My number one choice in purchasing shoes online is Zappos. At Zappos.com you can almost find any shoe, and usually at a very competitive price. They had me at their great shoe videos, and the free shipping both ways.
While I often think of Amazon as a place to buy books, vitamins and house goods, Amazon offers a great selection of clothing and shoes. A quick search for "Miz Moots Boots" turned up 128 results, and if you are a Prime member you can get FREE 2-day shipping.

If you're feeling hip and posh, by all means shop Modcloth. I go there to see pretty, swingy fashion, but knowing that fave brands like Knitted Dove and Miz Mooz are sold at Modcloth make me feel a little more twee than I'd like, but it's a great site and shopping resource.
There are loads of discount shoe outlets online, from DSW, 6 PM, Shoe Buy, and bargains can be had all across the internet. You can cross your fingers and HOPE that your desired pair of boots in oxblood red can be found there. You may save some money. It's possible. I like to find THEE pair of shoes/boots/shooties that my heart desires. And that brings me to the mother of all window shopping sites: ShopStyle
When you cruise over to shopstyle.com
you can create a account and create lookbooks of your favorite fashions from all across the web. Or you can just do a single search and find the size, the price and the shoe you want. A search for "Miz Mooz boots" turned up 124 results, over one hundred (106 of them to be exact) are boots. And of those 100, about six of the Miz Mooz boots need to be added to my wish list, stat. I've got an account set up over at ShopStyle (apparently from years ago) I haven't utilized it before. But while researching for this post, I've come to the conclusion that this is one of the best ways to find what your heart desires while locating the best deal for it.

For possible gently used, pre-loved boots, your best bet online is Ebay.
One search for "Miz Mooz boots" turned up 162 results. You can filter your size and color preference and see if your dream boot shows up. I found some in my size starting at 34.00 in auction and a few "Buy It Now" for under $80.
Nothing beats the thrill of a good score on a great shoe or boot. I got lucky with my Miz Mooz, a steal at $55 from a local consignment shop. I'm not sure if you can beat my deal online, but the quality and comfort of Miz Mooz shoes, you are most welcome to try!

Think I need some oxblood in my life. Fab boots, you look brilliant in red!
Ahh so stunning shoes!! Lovely colour, absolutely great for autumn :)
I love those boots!!! You look amazing today!
I love the colours coming from your post. Love everything, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Totally loving the outfit!!!1 The coat is STUNNING!!!
I need oxblood boots...or ballet flats or SOMETHING!!!
Agree with you on Zappos. Buying shoes on-line is difficult at best, ya can't try them on! So the free shipping both ways as perfect. We buy from Zappos a lot for the plays, because of the free shipping.
Love the way the colors look in the last photo
Oh yeah, I'm all over the oxblood/burgundy/insert-wine-name-here color. Those boots are AWESOME!!! ShopStyle is a great tool for item searches.
Fab Fall look, Bella! Love the MM boots, and thanks for all the tips. I've found 6pm a really good source, if I don't have to have the *exact* model. Cannot beat Zappos for customer service, imho.
Buttony boots! BUTTONY BOOTS! Love them.
I agree with you on the quality and comfort of Miz Mooz boots and the ones you're wearing are show stoppers! Good tips on where to make a score. Thx lovely!
You've found some gorgeous autumn colours for this post, very inspiring! Your new boots are awesome, I love all those little buttons, and the heels!
You look awesome as always. Love
I saw someone wear boots like that this morning and remember thinking how awesome they looked! good luck with sorting the camera issues!
You look gorgeous and I love the colours!
The boots are lovely, I can totally see why you fell for them! xxx
Those boots are so perfect for Fall! I love all the reds :)
So glad you got these boots! They are fabulous. I'm sorry to hear about the camera issues, hope you're able to get it fixed soon! I've never looked at clothes or accessories on Amazon before. Thanks for the tip!
OMG,I am BESOTTED with your new boots! Totally FABULARSE!
I'm too chicken to try ordering footwear from the States, I just couldn't work out my damn shoe size when I was there! I'm a consistent 8 here, but over there I was anywhere from a 7 1/2 to a 9! Bizzarre!
Gawd,I'm lousy at techie stuff too!Hope you get that camera sorted pronto!
Bella you've made oxblood look so great with red... I'd never had thought to put them together!! Oh and I have almost identical boots, but in tan! They're my faves :)
I've never had luck buying shoes online because of the size and shape of my foot. Those are some gorgeous boots - I'm a fan of the Miz Mooz brand too. Good luck sorting out the camera issues. I'm rarely able to get a sharp photo of myself using my tripod and timer, and my lens isn't even broken.
These boots are beauties...especially in that photo looking down, with the leaves gathered round.
The color and the boots are luscious and I love how you've worn them with red. I appreciate your tips on finding shoes/boots on the internet. You're tempting me to give it a try, as I find most of mine at consignment stores/estate sales/thrift shops.
Love the boots! I really like using Shop Style too. There alerts work really well to tell me when something goes on sale.
Those boots look great, as do you. Oh I detest camera problems!! It's a pain. I am loving my new hubby's Nikon. May it work forever! :D
Love Oxblood,, such a perfect red,, its so hard to find a really wearable red,, and thats it girl,, looks wonderful!! i love miz mooz too, such funky footwear!
You're right -- these colors are so dramatic.
Bella fabulous color play! I might have to add a dose of oxblood into my closet...thank you for the inspiration!
Just sitting here, sighing over your boots. And drooling. So cute... the whole thing. Sighing and drooling...
Awesome post with all those colors !!! Love the boots. I like the way you styled it.
Those boots are killa!
I like the red on you -
Makes you glow!
Amazing boots, love the rich color! Those are a staple in every way and will work with everything... oxblood is the new black. :-) Great photos Bella Q!
Thanks for all the shoe tips, Bella. But then again, I am trying to tame my shoe lust. It's easy to stop going to stores, but going online can be so tempting...
Ooh those boots are KILLER! Love this colour combo and the shape of the lovely coat. Stay warm! Sarah xxx
Those are an incredible pair of boots, you wear them well! I like using Shopstyle. I love the last capture of them with the leaves. :)
Those boots are probably the most perfect boots I've seen in a very long time. I LOVE the color, style, and the fact that you said they're comfortable. I never shop online, but I think that's about to end. Thank you for all the excellent info.
Enjoy your beautiful fall weather!
Bella, that coat is divine - the colour! The cut and details! The buttons! And your boots are, of course, fantastic.
I die with envy over your Zappos and 6 pm which don't ship to Canada at all, and also your Amazon - Canada has a such a lukewarm piddly version (as we used to have with Zappos), and all the fabulous shoes on ebay which only ship within-U.S. I've somehow managed a jam-packed closet anyway, so it's "good" to be kept in check by shipping / customs / duty fees! Or so I console myself. :)
Zappos has good service! Though I rarely buy shoes online because fit is so hard!
I've never heard of this brand! They are gorgeous Bella. What a great steal. I love consignment shopping!
Lovely way to wear oxblood red. I love combining that colour with a brighter red as you do here. Adding pink into the mix makes it even more fun!
Still looking great despite the fuzzy camera!
Those boots are amazing, the heel would kill me but the buttons and the ox blood leather would be worth it
You totally scored with your pre-loved oxblood pictures - love this color with all your reds!
OMG ! Fall must be so happy with colors like that ! I have to try !!! And the boots are over beautiful !!!
wow what a colourclash!!! i love love love your boots! they are really fabulous and that coat!
one stunning lady!
love and kiss,mary
Oh yes, I'm all about the Ox Blood color! I'm between jobs right now, so I'm going to be thrifting more than usual. Hopefully I can find some awesome boots like you did, my dear!
(sorry I haven't been by in awhile! just got a new computer, so I should be by more often)
These boots are to die for!!!
I love red and buttony boots. Yours are the perfect pair!
I bought red ugg boots in Australia and they look really cute! I just don't know what outfit I can pair them with. Any suggestions? Thank you!
