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.
