Man, it’s fridgid today in Melbourne. I ventured out in the attempt to find a 30th birthday present for a friend (alas, no luck) and it took me three goes to find an outfit that worked that I wouldn’t also perish of exposure in.
But, because I’m a bit anal about this sort of thing, I have to wear things that match, and what I’ve discovered it, not much goes with red boots.
Today I decided to haul my cashmere sweater dress out of storage, because its comfortable and snuggly, but I can’t ever find a top to put under it that looks right, and while I look quite poochy in it unless I also wear a belt, I can never find a belt that works either. Coupled with the requirement that something ties it to the red boots the only thing I could do was wear it with my Yoshi Jones Obi and hope for the best.
I’m not entirely sold on it as an outfit, and I’m thinking I may have to invest in a new sweater dress for next winter (there’s a few nice ones at Victoria’s Secret www.victoriassecret.com that I’ve got my eye on ). One that will go perfectly with my red boots.
Hell, I might just indulge now, because it doesn’t feel like it’s going to warm up any time soon.
Do me a favour and keep your eyes peeled, huh?
Oh, also – I’ve had a few queries about the heel and style of the red boots – It’s the “Jennifer” style at www.bootsforbroads.com.au they have a sturdy 5cm block heel, and after I installed a little gel innersole they are perfectly comfortable to wear all day.
Ooooh…… You like this one?
It’d be a true “investment” piece though, not sure I can rationalise it….
If I’m very, verrrry good over the next month or so…
but which colour? the black? the brown?
I’m rather partial to the mink. I like chocolate colours though. The black is perfect for investment .. but seems a little “obvious” to me.
THOUGH.. it would be easy to accessorise with everything.
Lovely dress and the boots look great. 🙂
I like the mink too.
BUT I do think you should check out this seller on etsy 😉
Thanks Deb – I’m leaning towards the chocolate, I think. I agree the black’s a bit obvious, and I already have a grey cashmere sweater dress (sort of)
Good find there, Ruby – I haven’t come across her before! I love the Houndstooth dress… I wonder if she makes to size….
I can honestly say I would never be able to pull of those boots as well you do, I think the outfit is gorgeous! especially love the obi belt
