Sassy Shoe Thursday


A couple of months ago I was SUPER duper excited to find these (vintage?) black boots at Goodwill. The name is mostly worn off of the inner sole, so I have no clue what they are. But, obviously, they had already been loved greatly by someone, as they have been resoled. I've been wanting flat black boots, but was wary of suede with the Colorado snow.

Well, after wearing these a couple of times, I was totally in love. With my gray skinnies shoved in, they were perfect. I couldn't wait to wear them with tights! (I took these, like, a month ago to show them to you.)

(Okay, these pics don't show how super-cute-vintage-y they are.)
That day's outfit:

Pulling it all together...
Dress: A shop in Goleta that my sister gave me a gift certificate to a few years back.
Tank (that you can barely see): H&M
Gray Skinnies: H&M (Luuuvvvv these!!! Wear them constantly... which you know if you live close.)
Boots: As you already know, Goodwill.
Scarf: Birthday gift, made my Mother-in-law. LOVE it! So rich feeling.
Pink bracelets: Target dollar spot
Silver cuff: Grams'
Earrings: Tiff's thrift store in Santa Maria. Can't remember the name.
Sunglasses: Gloss, here in C.S.

Anyhoo, the for-now ending of this story is, I went to put on the boots a couple of weeks ago... and the leather foot-part is separating from the sole! NOOOOOO!!!!!

Yes, I'm going to take them to a cobbler, but just haven't had the time yet. I'm not sure they can be repaired, because all of the "stuff" looks kind of frail and falling-apart-ish.

Boo. Sadness.

So, the moral of the story is: If you're looking for this season's go-to flat boot, shop your local thrift stores. Just don't get too attached, as they may fall apart. And you will be sad.

Boo. I already said that. I'm going to say it again.
