I’m trying to avoid going into stores so that I’m not tempted to spend. Things are so much more enticing in person than they are online. I went into Barneys recently and I thought I was going to start licking the purses on the first floor. They looked so delicious. But I have new jewelry designs, new photographs, a new catalog and a new website to pay for. Oh, and new business cards, letterhead and packaging. I need to prioritize! Still, I am pondering the need for a pair of brown boots. These Miu Miu ones are nice and the heel looks high but sturdy.
While browsing the Bergdorf Goodman site, I noticed these black booties by Michael Kors. I do a lot of walking during the day, and this 2″ heel would be good for that. The boots are also a little Beatles-y, which is a plus.
I have a pair of old wedge-heel boots that give me about the same height as the Michael Kors, so I will probably just stick with what I have. The old ones are not the most comfortable shoes for a lot of walking, unfortunately, but don’t tell me to wear sneakers or flats! I’m strictly a heels woman.
Speaking of boots, if you’re looking for a rubber rain boot, I think these are pretty cool, but I wonder if the holes for the laces let in too much water.
When I was in high school, EVERYONE wore LL Bean shoes for bad weather.
I hated the LL Bean shoes! Even then, before I wore heels, I was distressed by the unattractive shoe options for rain and snow. A few seasons ago, I was delighted when model of decorum Marc Jacobs came out with rain boots with heels. I got yellow ones because they made me think of the Morton Salt girl.
I wore them earlier this month when we had a deluge.
This picture was taken earlier in the day, out the window of my cab. I was trying to capture how flooded the street was (very!) but I don’t think this really shows it. I still like the picture because the yellow of the other taxi contrasts nicely with the grey day. For some reason, I’m obsessed with yellow!
