the realm of skinny jeans, and the boot saga ends...for now
then this year the vinyl started splitting and peelin around the zipper. i've still worn them, it's pretty hidden under my regular boot cut jeans, but i started looking for replacement boots.
i was in for a long haul. i couldn't find any like THAT. i wanted leather, but would be ok with vinyl, i just wanted something like those. i searched stores. i searched online. i searched ebay. i ended up buying THREE pairs of boots on ebay that i thought would work. none did (and now i have three pairs to re-sell). i bought a pair of as-close-as-i-can-come-to-what-i-want boots at DSW....BUT no clicky heels. that bugged me.
then i searched zappos again and found these. I got them yesterday and pretty much love them. they're as close as i'm gonna get to my old boots. if the heel was a little chunkier and they had zippers (i didn't realize they were stretch pull-ons) i'd be ecstatic. but i'm at least very, very happy! so then i was thinking--skinny jeans! why have i never? took the daughter to old navy and found some clearanced for 8.99 each. we each got 2 pairs. sweet!
