A fashionista I am not. I like reading about fashion. I like knowing about new trends, accessories, whatev...Pay even gets me a subscription to Lou Lou, which I absolutely devour every month. AND I've recently awakened a new love of handbags(for this, I blame Pay. She is a chronic bag and shoe-aholic). But when it comes down to everyday, I end up looking preeetty much the same. Morning comes and I grab whatever doesn't smell, what's comfortable and what pretty much matches. I've got the wardrobe - I just end up wearing the same 30% of it over and over.
Anyway, I'm good with that. Because I know I can work it if I want to. It's just most of the time, I can't really be bothered. And I've really got an issue with boots. Specifically, winter boots.
Winter boots make it hard to be fashionable. And I don't care if you've got the latest tassled, faux-furred, wedge-heeled, knee-highed, $400 monstrosity on your foot...it's STILL likely you have to change out of it when you get to the office for several reasons:
1. They're wet.
2. They don't match your outfit.
3. They're too hot to wear all day.
My winter boots rock. I got a new pair from Kamik this winter. They are warm, waterproof and grippy (they suck my socks off every time I take them off). They are also purple. PURPLE! Now that ain't matching diddly. Plus, they're uber-toasty. So it is a necessity for me to have a change of shoe when I get to work. Then this presents a whole NEW gamut of issues:
1.How do you know THAT shoe is gonna match your shizz?
2.Do you really want to leave spare shoes at work, cuz if you need them at home one day?
3.Should you leave more than one pair?
I'm not afraid to ask the tough questions.
