The Dangers of Exercise.

Today has been a weird shoe day. The first rockin' pair I saw was a bright blue pair of Mary Janes by Vivian Westwood on major sale. I have this test where I try and imagine how I'll feel if I don't buy something. If a sinking feeling doesn't automatically follow, I'm probably not that into it. These adorable Mary Janes didn't stir up any feeling of loss, so despite their epic me-ness I didn't go for them.

The second pair was spotted while I walked by the Aldo near my apartment. The Boyfriend and I were walking the local shopping area in a noble attempt to exercise ourselves, but it devolved into a "let's just stop in here quick..." game. For once, it was he who was doing the pit stops, not me. That is, until I passed the Aldo window. The store was closed (thank god), but these puppies were sitting in the window, looking up at me.

I have a boot problem in the first place. I also love worn looking leather, interesting details, and I love that it's a flat boot. It's one of those super popular over the knee boots that I worry are too trendy, but I think you could unzip the top and roll it down. For $170, it's really scraping the top of what I can pay at the moment.

Luckily for me, these are black leather, which I don't love. I prefer worn, dark brown leather. I mean, I'll take a black leather purse or pair of pumps any day, but when it comes to fashion sneakers, boots, coats, messenger bags... brown brown brown.

I'm going on a quest to find something similar to these (in brown! and affordable-ish!), but I'll keep an eye on them. They may just be cool enough to shake my feelings. Even Boyfriend likes them. This from the guy who quite frequently laughs and tells me I need more boots like he needs more poker books.

Sigh. These boots might be passing the "will I feel sad if I miss out on them" test I mentioned before. I'll be thinking about them for a while. Stupid exercise.


  1. I really want a pair of over-the-knee boots. But I'm not sure how I'd feel about actually wearing them.

  2. Jessica, I agree. I thought I might buy a pair after winter on like, mega clearance, and try them out for next year. I'm not brave enough to pull them off now - so there's now way i'm purchasing them full price or even a little percentage off.
