I absolutely adore that lucky....looks awesome with the boots! I can just picture you wandering in a forest....very smurfy.

:p

The Txell skirt looks fantastic! Does it come just over you knees? It's a bit hard to tell exactly how long it is.

I can see you hate having your picture taken , but you really look so fabulous. Thanks so much for posting those!

karma to all...

the man knows how to dress a woman.

laika, the txell skirt comes down a couple of inches below the knee in front and is slightly longer in back.

spent the day in the forest, hacking with friends, cozy in my dries sweater.

NEW BOOTS?!?

Soft, while we're on the topic of boots, can we get a better look at the bronze booties? Pretty plz?!

Tourist, I couldn't send you any love unfortunately but your new purchases and lovely outfits posted in the Secret Shopaholics thread are truly a dream.

I'm stuck in an all day meeting but will post pictures tonight But I'm pretty sure mine are just the black version of the purple ankle boots on monamoore, with the exposed side zipper. I love them! Ankle boots never look that good on me with a skirt, but I these work for me!

Those are badass! I love the strong silhouette. I am thinking they'd look stellar with skirts and skinny cigarette pts.

crap....how am I ever going to decide which shoes to get this season?! I thought I had it down to three, but now, seeing tourist's, it's up at four.


I want all of these, all in black....

mine are exactly like the monamoore ones, with no toe detail and the little flap over the zipper. The Butter ones are slightly different

laika - those are all really good choices!! that is a tough decision

Laika, they're all covetable, rly. Decisions, decisions...

The first boot is classic and will certaintly work with everything. The purple bootie is gorgeous though I prefer the lower heeled version. The third pr. are so special and a personal favorite. Perfect mixture of classic and esoteric, imo. Surely one could work them into any outfit somehow! The last pr. are a novelty of sorts - they're romantic but definitely suited for 'mood' outfits. In my reality they'd work beyond their spectrum, though.

So I guess it's a matter of classic vs. special?

I cannot give you karma atm, but thanks for posting these pictures ... I "get" that sequin top now that I've seen it on you ...

as far as i am concerned...
the high ones are AMAZING...
i would get those...
BUT- they will never fit my skinny chicken legs...

so then i would cross the zippers off the list...
they are nowhere near as good as the other two...plain and simple...

i also have really tiny ankles...
so - much as i live for the oxford lace ups...chances are they will look like boats on my feet because they always do...

so now i have narrowed it down ...
at least for me......
i can only get the ones that tourist got!...

laika..
if you can wear the high ones...
i suggest pawning everything you own and buying them...
:p
