Getting There...

Can you tell I can't resist playing dress up as I go? I mean, fitting and determining drape requires me to try it on ;-)
SO EXCITED ABOUT THESE BOOTS! They are brilliant! I was certain the whole time after ordering them until I received them that I would have to send them back and find alternate footwear. Normally, I get a size 8 (because my feet are wide), but these have the option of wide width, woo! So I thought to try a size 7.5, but they were on back order. Thus in a lapse of sanity I said 'let's try the 7s' and ordered them. I was super surprised and pleased that they not only fit, but are awesomely comfy. I wore them around the apartment for several hours just to be certain (and yes, I was in my nightgown at the time... yay for me and high fashionability -a neighbor may or may not have been, very nicely, trying to return my driver's license which had fallen out of my wallet when I unlocked the door on my way in, and I had to be rude and only crack the door so they wouldn't catch me in my tigger cotton jersey nightgown with calf-high leather victorian boots. good times.) What was I saying? Oh, yeah. great boots. And they smell so good, leather instead of that nasty plastic chemically pleather crap. Sorry, cow, you had to die, but I really like my boots.

  3. The boots were the ones I was pining for here: http://graverobbergirl.blogspot.com/2011/05/steampunk-dress-project-part-x-skirt.html

    They're 'Array' brand. The only thing that would make them better would be if the soles were wooden/traditional materials and if they were made in the US... but that's way out of my price range. I'll settle for the authentic Louis heel and real leather. :-)
