BOOT LUV

It’s New York Fashion Week, the reverberations of which throughout the city could be a post in and of themselves, but that’s not why I’m here—I’m here to talk about BOOTS. Because it’s September 12th, and although it’s still humid and sticky and oven-y there are some autumnal vibes lurking, and the only thing that that could possibly mean for me is that it’s time for my favorite article of clothing, my uniform, my trusties, boots.

I saw this girl with these absolutely incredible boots the other day—wedgey cut out black leather things with big silver buckles and shiny white patent tips, but I’ve been unsuccessful in hunting them down even though they looked pretty Chloé to me. Whatever. Gaze upon these others.

Jeffrey Campbell Hyatt Buckled Booties. Seem like they would look good with anything—little dresses, long dresses, shorts, black skinny jeans, the works. Le sigh.

Acne Studios Petra Boot. So sleek and evil and villainous and modern. So expensive. With a long black coat and a low ponytail I would feel straight femme fatale in these bad boiz.

 

Pixiemarket Croc Wrap Pointy Boots. Wasn’t feeling cutout booties at first but I sort of get it now that I understand New York weather and the conflicting emotions of desperately missing boots and being unable to cover your entire feet for fear of heatstroke. Resourceful cobblers therefore just removed part of the boot and hoped that it wouldn’t look fucking stupid, which I guess it doesn’t in 2013, at least.

 

Toga Pulla 4 Buckle Cowboy Boots from Opening Ceremony. Chloé ripoffs IMO but still on-point, literally, har har har.
Also Opening Ceremony: Luxor Embossed Croc Print Buckled Boots. Perfectly hitting that weird mid-calf height that can sometimes be off-putting, but the slender shafts seems to offer a more flattering take. Also pleasantly trashy-looking, Elvis-y almost.

Till it’s jacket weather, I’ll just keep dreamin’ of boots on boots on boots.
