ANYWAY... the dream boot. I just bought a pair of shoes.
By far the coolest shoes I have have ever seen, let alone owned. They were second hand, but never worn, Italian, black suede, high high high stiletto ankle boots with fringing. haha. Fringing. Love it. Such a trend, but I couldn't resist the boots, and it won't be until next year that the mainstream shops start making imitations that make me scream with anger. I paid! Anyway, I couldn't resist them, and (even though I really shouldn't) I'm wearing them to the ball. I have dreamt of fringed ankle boots since I saw them in the genius Gucci fall/winter 08/09 show. Jefferson Hack (of Dazed and Confused mag and Kate Moss' daughter Lila Grace's father), mentioned the sexy sound of leather whips as the models walked the runway.
Also in f/w, Balmian showed a high heeled moccasin that I adored, the perfect balance of rock n roll and sophistication.
So, I am in loooove with my boots, and should not be thinking about any other style ... but! Today on style.com, the item of the week was the Miu Miu motorcycle boot, and I fell in love again.
Gorgeous! But, to me the selling point is the buckled harness that can be removed when you 'feel more Halston than Harley-Davidson'. Fashionable and pratical!
