More Than 1 400 Nordstrom Shoppers Gave These Boots a Perfect Rating — and Theyre 50 Off Right Now

Ah, the magic of sale season. Just about every retailer in the books is rolling out some sort of end-of-season discount, and some of the best deals we’ve seen are in Nordstrom’s never-ending sale section. The department store has slashed prices on more than 13,000 products, and we found the one item that’s perhaps the smartest buy of all: Sam Edelman’s Petty Chelsea Boot. 

To say we get weak in the knees for a good boot would be a serious understatement. Add in that said good boot comes with an amazing price tag, and we really can’t get our wallets fast enough — so let’s just say it was love at first sight with this footwear stunner.

Boasting an inherently simple silhouette and a low, stacked heel, these adorable booties are ideal for everyday wear. Added bonus: They really won’t go out of style, either. They’re crafted from a durable suede, so you don’t have to worry about your feet getting soaked — but we do recommend using a suede protecting spray to keep them looking as good as new.

We’re not the only ones utterly obsessed with these sensible Sam Edelman shoes. More than 1,400 Nordstrom shoppers have taken time out of their day to give their two cents about the classic Chelsea booties, and the consensus is clear: They’re a must-buy.

The Petty Chelsea Boots typically go for $129.95, which isn’t a huge splurge, but it’s not pocket change, either. Right now, however, these top-rated booties are 50 percent off, which means they cost a super-reasonable $64.96. Considering how many times you’ll wear these (hint: a lot, according to the reviews), this might just be the smartest $65 you’ll ever spend. Shop the boots that made us weak in the knees below.

Abandoned Dog Has 9 Pounds of Matted Fur Shaved Off During Dramatic Makeover This Poor Baby

Abandoned Dog Has 9 Pounds of Matted Fur Shaved Off During Dramatic Makeover This Poor Baby

An elderly pooch has been given a fresh start after undergoing a dramatic — and potentially life-saving — makeover.

Master Roshi, a 17-year-old shih tzu mix, underwent a major transformation when he had nearly nine pounds of tightly matted fur shaved from his body, according to a post shared by the Hope for Life Rescue shelter in Virginia Beach, Virginia on Wednesday.

The animal shelter said Master Roshi was in bad shape when he first arrived at their location, and the person who dropped him off refused to provide any information about the pup’s owner or how the canine’s fur came to be so entangled.

“We are so saddened at the state that this poor dog came to us,” the rescue wrote alongside a video of the dog. “We couldn’t even tell if he had eyes as he was so badly matted around his face and throughout his body.”

The shelter said employees immediately got to work on cleaning up Master Roshi. When they finally trimmed off all his knotted hairballs after a three-hour grooming session, staffers found that the dog was blind, deaf and had trouble walking.

“This poor baby tried to stand up to have a bowel movement and he fell backwards,” a follow-up comment from the shelter read. “I held him up so that he could finish doing his business.”

The post continued, “His legs are extremely weak and although he tried to walk he was only able to take a step. He is now at Pet Care Vet getting a complete senior work up. We the bloodwork will be ok.”

Due to the large amount of matted fur on his body, Hope for Life Rescue founder Paulina Cushman told WTKR she suspects Master Roshi had been neglected for some time before he was brought to the shelter.

“That didn’t happen overnight and it didn’t happen in a short few months. It’s probably been well over a year or two for him to get that bad,” she said.

“I don’t understand why people don’t cry out for help instead of letting the neglect go this far. Anybody would be willing to take and help a dog rather than waiting until it gets this far.”

Scott Borchetta Calls Taylor Swift Brilliant Amid Record Label Feud Im Always Going to Root for Her

Scott Borchetta Calls Taylor Swift Brilliant Amid Record Label Feud Im Always Going to Root for Her

Scott Borchetta says that he will “always” be rooting for Taylor Swift as the record executive and pop star continue to feud over her music catalog.

“Of course,” Borchetta, 57, recently told Billboard when asked if he’s still rooting for Swift amid the turmoil. “I mean, I’m always going to root for her. She’s brilliant and we’ve had a historic run, so, yeah.”

In the same interview, however, Borchetta said that his “biggest power move” of 2019 was joining forces with Scooter Braun — the very move that triggered the drama with Swift, 30.

“Our biggest power move is my new partner, Scooter Braun, with Ithaca. So we’re having a great time and it’s pretty powerful,” he continued, adding that the sale of Big Machine to Braun has taught him who is real friends are.

“We’ve always had a tough skin, so you know, there’s a great balance in the universe, great things have happened,” he said. “Every once in a while you’re going to get hit, but we’re rocking.”

Nearly a year after Swift signed a new record deal with Universal Music Group in November 2018, Big Machine sold for $300 million to Braun, meaning that Swift’s musical catalog was going along with it.

Braun, 38, manages several artists, including Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. He also represented Kanye West for a period of time.

Just after the sale, Swift made it clear that she did not approve and wanted the rights to own her own music.

“For years I asked, pleaded for a chance to own my work,” she wrote in a lengthy Tumblr post that gave some insight on her decision to leave Big Machine.

“Instead I was given an opportunity to sign back up to Big Machine Records and ‘earn’ one album back at a time, one for every new one I turned in,” she explained. “I walked away because I knew once I signed that contract, Scott Borchetta would sell the label, thereby selling me and my future. I had to make the excruciating choice to leave behind my past. Music I wrote on my bedroom floor and videos I dreamed up and paid for from the money I earned playing in bars, then clubs, then arenas, then stadiums.”
