It Was Funny Until...

I saw these little doggies.

See, there was this picture in a magazine the other day and even though I oughta know better, I snickered at the woman's boots.  Can you even believe it?!

Within a day or so, however, while at my third favorite place to be, I saw not the same pair, but a pair resembling closely enough that I was taken aback.  And then I was moved a-forward. Toward them.  I bought them.  For $2.

Yes, yes.  I've been meditating on just what that says about me that I could turn on a two-bill for a boot.  And I hope those thoughts work themselves out, show themselves off over at The Bending Tree.

But today is the first day of fall y'all and, for me, that means breakin' out the boots!  I'm celebrating the start of this new season and y'all should do the same...even if your boots are funny lookin'.

Honey Hates My Shoes...


There's this rule that if you're wearing something old (nowadays, fashionably speaking), you must balance it with something new.  So when settling on my vintage Lester Square for The Tog Shop dress (lookey there, a maker reference!), I really had no choice but to balance myself atop my most Jane Jetson-esques.

Supposedly, this particular dress is of the 80s era but it looks 60s to me (as to most everyone who's admired it.)  If I'd worn 60s in my 20s - and I wouldn't have because I wasn't cool like that - but if I had, I'm pretty sure it would have been more Peggy Sue does...(not get it.)  I'm talking bouffant, plastic beads, go-go boots. 

Speaking of go-go boots, I gotta get some of those!  And looking at pictures of Jane Jetson, how many pairs of go-go boots did she have anyway?!  Wait.  This may turn out to be thematic dressing after all!  Maybe I still don't get it.

But I am fairly certain I wouldn't have worn this dress back then regardless of its era.  What's next?  The 90s?  (The actual era of my 20s.)  I don't think so.

But then, who am I kidding?  It's become pretty obvious, even to me...if it's a dollar, I'll probably do it.

Clue Two...

A pattern will begin to emerge. 
I will not refer so often to the designer of my attire but to the cost of it.

Why? Why? Why is this happening?

Three Trends I Can't Stop Noting...

1) The odd inclination to wear a skirt over a dress.

2) Skinny leopard-print belts.

3) Classic Missoni zig zag.

But will they amount to anything?
Shirt + Skirt + Belt = $2.25
(Or in other words, yes.)

3) Close enough.

2) Kid's belt.

1) My top's not quite a dress but would be if I were just two inches shorter.

These Boots Are Made For...

Maybe you say dry footing.  Maybe you say horse stall cleaning. 

I say tropical storm debris wading. 

see.  debris.

As we've dealt with TS Lee this weekend, it made perfect sense to me to break out my ultimate puddle-stompers.  The trouble husband wouldn't stop laughing at me.  Apparently, these boots were made for tickling his ribs.

see. irony.

I gave myself the giggles with a wink at irony.

See, those boots cost me $2.
The whole deal cost me $5.
So everyone may laugh at me. 
But I'll do it again.

and see.  it really did rain.
