The weather has been unseasonably cool these past few days and I have been craving the autumn. This craving has been further enhanced by a special find at my favorite clothing store... and since I am already exposed upon my own blog- witness, the sweater. It is everything that I love in a sweater...
feminine without being girly, casual but with soft detail, a hood, good texture, great color, lightweight and 40% off. I forced myself to purchase the brown version instead of the black... change is good.
I have been having dreams of boots. I used to live in boots, Doc Marten boots back when they were made in England by the original company. Black, ten eyelet DM's. White ten eyelet DM's. Brown, eight eyelet greasies and a pair of forest green oxford style were worn by yours truly over the years. I rocked the DM's old school since back in the late 80's when a Skinhead who owed me money gave me a pair in lieu of cash.
Currently I have a pair of black Maryjane double straps that I found at the local DI (Goodwill style thrift store). Those and a pair of Ralph Lauren tennies that I picked up at Costco for ten bucks are all that I will have to shoe m'self come cooler weather. I do not consider the Kmart special, snow boots as an option for anything other than shoveling the driveway, or snowman building thank you very MUCH!
Nice boots cost money, so I want to get it right the first time... even if it is only in my dreams. I will NOT wear heels of any significant height... and ankle-high boots just kinda piss me off. I am not afraid of ugly... but I doubt that there is an "Ugg" that I would consider. Nice enough to wear with a skirt is a bonus... but not absolutely necessary. I am fashion-stupid right now... not to give the impression that I have ever been a sharp dresser, but I have enough personality to pull off some unusual styles and I am NOT USING IT! Give me your opinion... hopefully with URL's for visuals. If I can manage to convince myself and Dadguy that I MUST have the pair that you recommend, and actually BUY them? I'll send you an original, handmade "Bon Mama Paper Doll" complete with a wardrobe of the frumpy non-style clothing that I have been perpetrating on my self since motherhood hit five years ago. HEEEEEELP!
kinda leaning this direction currently.... sort of.
