As my sister and I are walking out of the store
, after I've purchased my two shearling hats and she's purchased her mink vest and little, fitted red riding jacket, we stop inside the store to get our gear on - you know the gloves, the hats, scarves - all the stuff you currently cannot go outside in MN without or you will DIE instantly, and as we're standing there, I look over and say, "Um, check out those boots." She concurs that upon first sight they are amazing, possibly the best thing we've seen today. I try them on and, as fate would have it, they fit - like a glove, only it's a boot.
Are they the most gorgeous thing? I've worn them two days straight and they're the most comfortable boot I've ever owned. I still have them on and it's almost midnight, that's saying something. The heel in this pic is a little muddy, as I wore them to Oscar's soccer game yesterday and that damn field couldn't support a heel properly. Hmph! (Soccer moms in hot boots unite!)
When you get a good vintage item, it counts double if you can marvel at the interior, the lining and the construction. These are beautifully crafted with scallop-shaped leather and suede on the exterior and they're lined with white kid leather on the inside. Nothing more to say except, I'm in LOVE.
