Sassy Shoe Thursday: Endless Fun

I can get way too carried away playing with this. I loved the ones I designed yesterday so much that I left the page up all day so Nate could see them when he got home from work:

Aren't they amazing? And the possibilities are virtually endless. This may have to be added to my things-I'll-do-first-if-I-come-into-a-windfall-of-cash list, right below a weekly house cleaning service and a pair of Christian Louboutin's.

Also, for those of you on the hunt for the perfect fall boot I have come across a wonderful website. While it doesn't have some of the trendier styles I love, it's selection is not shabby. Duoboots.com, get this, makes their boots in not just foot sizes but CALF SIZES!!! They're not inexpensive, but they're all leather and the reviews are great. I may at some point consider paying that much for a pair of boots that fits my leg perfectly and is, for all intents and purposes, timeless. (Which may be why they DON'T carry some of the more trendier styles!)

As an update on this issue, I did indeed order the boots from zappos.com. They were my birthday present, which my amazing friend Jason made in part possible. They came Tuesday, and they're absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful. Beautiful. But... they don't fit my legs!!! I tried them on a few different ways. With my skinny jeans. With dresses. With big socks. Nate's response was, "they make you look like you have cankles." I thought he was just being overly negative until I asked a trusted friend last night. One glance at them on my feet and she said, "they look like cankle boots." Oh!!!! OH!!!!!!!! But they're so lovely! There's just no definition for my legs. Did you know that ever since 7th grade when I saw Shelly Hansford wearing her LA Gear with tube socks and her legs looked so perfect I have yearned and yearned for larger calves? Alas, it was not meant to be. Small ankles. Small calves.

So today I will box back up my beautiful Haydon boots and send them on their way. My search continues. (I can't do the duo boot thing at the moment.) I feel like I've looked at every near-reasonably priced boot out there and can't find a cute cuffed version that will work.

I'll let you know as soon as I do.
