If the booties were maroon or grey I'd say keep them.But the black bores me a bit.

shame on you, de-robing the governess!

I don't like that the toe is squared off. It works on the Missoni because they have such a sexy heel, but these look a bit "old" and overly sensible to me.

..
this thread became very funny..very quickly..

lucky you have such a good sense of humour soft....

do you ever wear the boots any more?..when was the last time you wore them?..
do you have any particular emotional attachment to them?..will you use them for work?..
can you see yourself wanting / wearing them in the not too distant future?...

if the answer is 'NO' to more than 3 of these questions..i say sell / donate..
if you think someone else will benefit more from them..or love them more..i also say sell / donate..
...

Deborah - I guess it depends on what you paid for them. They are (IMO) ok but nothing special (no offence)

Would you wear this? Yay or Nay clothing edition
So after searching for 45 minutes for a thread that is something like this, I came up with nothing for clothing pieces. So hopefully I didnt miss it....

I was thinking about all these random items that can accumulate in a wardrobe that you really do not know for sure why you have it. Or maybe something you bought to wear with a particular skirt and it didnt look right, and you never got around to returning it. Or even something you want to buy but are not 100% sold on it. Sometimes I find an un-biased opinion will help give you that nudge to either pitch it, buy it or actually wear it.
I know sometimes when I ask family or friends if they like something, they give me that face like "why would you even think of wearing that". They just do not understand that sometimes something that may look ugly to them can actually be one of your favorite pieces and be very functional in your wardrobe.
Now I know we all have different styles and ideas, and we are not trying to impress everyone, but sometimes extra eyes (especially fashionable ones) can help you figure out if you really need this item.
I noticed that I have items or want to buy items that I am just not super sure on. I know sometimes my taste can get wacko on me and then I come out of it thinking why did I buy that!!! I know everyone else probably does this too.
So Maybe this thread could be used for all those things regarding clothes, like the Yay or Nay for shoes. Not a what to wear with it type thread but a Would you wear this thread.

Would this thread work? I know I would use it, but would anyone else?
