Functional Requirements

Once again, as he does every Summer my husband unit has requested that I go hiking with him. Previous attempts were thwarted by my lack of appropriate footwear, but his year I've decided that my old-school second favorite kick-ass boots ever just might do the job and I'm getting a pair of Georgia Boots. My last pair saw me through my second to last, last year of college - those were knee high and took about 10 minutes to lace - this time I'm going for the more utilitarian classic model.

Mom Approved

Aside from our nearly identical faces, love for each other and my sister and snarky sense of humor, my mother and I have very little in common - which is especially true when it comes to all sartorial matters. Most recently, as I raved about the fabulousness of my afore mentioned and later donated to my 15-year-old cousin, skinny black and white plaid pants - my mother stood just feet away stage whispering to my sister, "I really don't care for those pants at all." Unsolicited commentary essentially required by the binds and history of our relationship. Anyway, I know for a fact that she'd like these boots, as I believe she owns a nearly identical pair - and I like them too, mostly because I think they'll work with my ridiculously skinny ankles.

Not Sandals

I've been looking for a pair of black leather, platform, wedge, gladiator-esque sandals for the past two years. During this quest, I've come to realize that I'm not that into sandals, and that the ones I am into are far too expensive to only wear for a few fleeting months. Today while looking for these elusive sandals, I instead became enamoured with these over the knee boots, which I'm also always searching for.

Sneakers for a life already lived

I recently realized that I make way too many purchases for the 15-year-old version of myself...the plaid skinny pants with zippers, the babydoll dress covered in a cassette tape print - and the list goes on, way on. I'm making a conscious effort to dress like my real aged self, but it's hard and honestly, I'm not totally committed. That lack of commitment is plainly apparent in my scarpe love of these studded, cow hair-covered sneakers, which both my 15-year-old and real aged self adore - and we both believe that they'd look kick ass with those plaid skinny pants.

Botkier Xenia Boot


I don't normally go for clever footwear, but there's something about the adorable ruffled cuff on these Botkier Xenia boots that renders me helpless to their power.

Steven by Steve Madden "Amityy" Tall Leather Boots

Steven by Steve Madden "Amityy" Tall Leather Boots -

I think that I've been avoiding Steve Madden boots without just cause...I've unfairly judged them and I am now reay to make amends thanks to these Amityy boots - I am loving their lil cone heel and chic sophistication - and most of all, I am really lovin' the price - I've come thisclose to buying a very similar pair by a much more expensive brand like twice so far this Fall.

Christian Louboutin Altbotte platform boots

Christian Louboutin Altbotte platform boots

I am seriously shopping deprived right now, but when I saw these Christian Louboutin Altbotte boots, thoughts shifted to meals of ramen and living without the internet for a few months and perhaps a second job too - need these boots real bad.

Dolce Vita Wynona

Dolce Vita Wynona

Recently, I've been reconsidering my stance on booties. While not the most versatile or universally flattering, I'm thinking that booties might be the perfect cold weather alternative to pumps (honestly, I have some weird thing about the tops of my feet getting cold)....and I also think that these Wynona boots from Dolce Vita would look good with pants and skirts - sold!
