Can I just talk about boots here for a minute or six?
I am living in Spain. The land famed for leather, boots, shoes and purses.
Let me tell you, I cannot find a pair of boots I like in this city. Not one.
They specialise in sl*t boots. Like these....
OK, that was a lie. I did see a whole lot of pairs like that in Poland though...
No really, they look more like these.....
Now those are fine boots in their own way, but they really aren't what I am thinking about. I don't really like having a ton of anything, so when I am looking for boots, I am thinking of something that I could wear with a dress - in a slightly punkish way - and that I could wear with pants, entirely reputably, and that I could wear in the hills walking the dog. One pair to do it all, like I have to.
So I started looking at shoes, there are two main choices...
or these styles....
Now all the fashion divas out there -why they are reading this blog I don't know...my sister once described me as the coolest nerd she knew. A backhanded compliment if I ever heard one, but I think accurate.
Now...back to the fashion divas, who are going to shoot me because these are SO in style right now; but can I just say that I HATE both of those styles of shoes..I am not a school girl from the fifties, and I am FAR too old for ballet flats...FAR.
A little aside about the message i'm getting from these footwear options...am I the only one who is hearing that old saw about women? V*rgin or sl*t?
Is there nothing else out there for real women?
Something like maybe this?
or even better...THESE!!!
Tough as nails, I can walk anywhere comfortably and reasonably warm, but they can be polished. No zippers to break, or elastics to wear out, so they could last me twenty years... and they aren't fussy
Lord where can I get me some for a woman's foot?????
