The Dangers of Excercise Part 2: I Wasn't Kidding.

Yesterday's mention of the Aldo Cassetty boot was meant to be a thought in passing, just mentioning a cool pair of boots that finally convinced me to try and find an over-the-knee for my very own. I considered it the pair that sparked the search.

What I didn't know was that I would not be able to stop thinking about them all day. Like, to a keep-a-picture-of-them-up-in-another-window-while-I-was-working-all-day-so-I-could-click-over-and-adore-them level. It's really bad. I'm totally infatuated.

They don't go too far up the thigh (one of my weaker fitness areas), which rocks. The toe looks a bit more pointy now that I'm getting a better look at them, but that's not a huge deal. I spent all day at work giddy about them, mentally incorporating them into my wardrobe. For the first time since early high school, a black tall boot was seeming really cool.

So, of course, as soon as I got home... I went straight out and bought them. Of course, it wasn't that easy, because they didn't have my size. So of course, I got to order them and wait until Monday or Tuesday to know how they work out. I tried a comparable pair of boots on and they fit, so, here's hoping.

Splurge City. I know. It's wrong, but I had to have them. Forbidden love is always the best. These are the most expensive pair of shoes I've gotten since my mad-crazy splurge on the Frye Adrienne devoured all my college graduation money.

Now maybe I'll be able to concentrate on insurance regulations tomorrow instead of how wickedly 80's these boots would look with that blue sequin dress I've been craving. Or, maybe I'll keep dreaming of how else to wear them. Tights, skinny jeans, mini shorts, oh my. Monica Rose and her assistant bought a pair and display them repeatedly here. I'm so excited! Photos when they turn up.


  1. Congrats! I've only experienced that level of intense obession with a Diane von Furstenberg dress a couple of years ago. I'd look at it every single day. I'd recalculate my budget to see if I could afford it. When I got my tax return, I checked online and it had disappeared. I was in a frenzy calling Nordstrom to do a store search for the dress. It was the most money I've ever spent on one clothing item before, but it was worth it.

  2. This was the dress: :-)

  3. Gah those boots are SO COOL! :) Sometimes it's good to splurge on yourself. You deserve it! I can't wait to see what outfits you're going to wear them with. I hope you keep us posted.
