Decisions, Decisions

I need a pair of black boots, not necessarily motorcycle, but along those lines.  Lace up is preferred and between the ankle and mid calf.  I have the perfect pair in my head but I have yet to find them anywhere for a good price.  I already have a pair of tan suede ones from about 4 years ago that I wear at least twice a week.  The are so comfortable and go with most of my wardrobe, and I don’t mean to replace them with these new black boots, more like give them a friend!

You may remember the Franco Sarto incident when I bought a pair of shoes too small (for an amazing deal) and couldn’t wear them because they didn’t fit.  It must have been magic at the store because I could barely get my foot in them when I brought them home and ended up selling them at Beacon’s Closet.

I have found two pairs at Free People which I think may fit the bill and live up to my standards.  I don’t want them to look like everyones else’s boot, I need a twist, something quirky to make them my own.

First up we have the Ryder Zip Boot.  I like the touch of red on the zipper, and my only concern is that they are a bit shorter than what I wanted.  But maybe since I already have medium height boots these would be fine.

The second boot is the Ann Arbor Boot which is more like the classic motorcycle/hipster boot.  I like their height better than the ones above I just worry that they look too messy.  Kind of a strange word for a boot but that is the best description I can think of.

They are basically the same price and I seriously need a pair of them asap.  They are a staple I should but somehow don’t have.

Thoughts? Preferences? Or if you have another suggestions that would be welcomed as well.

I went on a mini shopping spree (and subsequently online shopping spree) and the first pair of shoes I ordered came in the mail today!  The second ones will be arriving tomorrow hopefully…

These are Jeffrey Campbell “Woodies” courtesy of Free People.  I technically do already have a pair of high-heeled clogs, but my other ones are open toe and have a stiletto heel, these are much more day wear.  I ordered silk socks to go with them, which should arrive tomorrow and I think a super chunky knit sock will look adorable too.

No Glove, No Love

It’s that time of year.  Hat, glove, scarf weather.  Today we will focus on gloves.

Gloves are tricky for me because of my iPhone which uses heat sensors on the screen as opposed to pressure, so my fingertips need to be easily accessible.

These are some of my favorite gloves of the season, hopefully I can face the brisk New York weather with a few pairs of these on my hands.

Whatever tickles your fancy

I know this is my last post for my 30 Day Challenge and I should have a huge grand finale planned, and I did . . . however what currently “tickles my fancy” is what I am wearing today.

It is a Free People romper.

And I am in love.

That obviously isn’t me in the picture, but isn’t it adorable?

I love that it doesn’t completely look like a five year old would be wearing it to a birthday party, but it is still fun and sweet enough that it doesn’t think too much of itself.  It is a romper remember.  (And yes, clothes think).
