These are pretending to be snow boots with attitude. They are NOT snow boots. Unless your idea of snow is a few weeks in Aspen going to parties and lounging fire-side with cocktails and listening to men-who-ski tell epic tales and smoke cigars.
I'd be down for that. Completely.
Clare - is a black suede stacked heel boot, with a neat buckle....thing that covers the laces. I'm ready for Winter now, just not the snow.
There's a word that foodie's use to describe a kind of flavor you can't really describe because it's a little different for everyone. Umami.
I need a term like that for shoes. I have a look/style/feeling that I watch for. Somewhere in the category of unusual/eccentric/eye-catching/bizarre/distinct/almost-one-of-a-kind. None of those words really do it for me. But these shoes do.
Gina - black rhinestone buckled Mary Jane's. I'm a sucker for Mary Jane's of any heel height. And the neat part of theses, aside from the just-unusual-enough heel shape, is how the sides and back come up just past where you might expect, ut not too far to make them booties.
Eeeeeeeee houndstooth! Do I actually own any houndstooth footwear yet? I can't rememebr. Well I do now. This just feels like a pair Jamie would wear with her Love Detective get-up in GWS.
Urban they call her, and I don't know WHY they decided to use that. These aren't terribly urban, unless your idea of urban is a Sherlock-esque detective lady. With sass. And lots of boobage. Because that's way more accurate. Wither way, I have hounds-tooth booties. All is well.
Getting all the fierce shoes out of my system before the new work dress code kicks in. No more open toes, or high heels or outlandish styles. Boo. I will find a way to wear sassy but sensible shoes to work.
Or die trying.
But I'd rather not die.
Lexus - black patent and Lycra platform pump. The Lycra makes this pair so comfortable, it's insane. No zippers or buckles to tighten or rub me wrong. It's like wearing a pair of yoga pants on my feet, in...shoe form. That totally makes sense, just work with me here.
Tangent: they come in other "colors". If by colors you mean ZEBRA with red patent, and LEOPARD with black patent. Those are not colors. Those are seriously 90's patterns that should for the most part remain in the 90's.
Unless you're having a 90's party, in which case I might be incredibly well prepared.
