love affair


Picture 4

I had these boots for about a month. We were in Brussels at the time and got up really early to take the first train to Paris for the start of the "soldes." I loved them. Their smell, their shape, their colour. I had to have them. I was standing outside the Rick Owens store in Palais Royale clutching my purchase, and it started to snow. It was like a dream. I paraded around hotel rooms in Brussels, Antwerp and Paris in them. Then I got home. Depression set in. I loved these boots but the reality was that I would most likely have very limited opportunities to wear them, living where I live, I thought. So I sold them. I tried to pretend it wasn't hard to do, but it was.

Now, I have these. I just got them in the mail today and they are awesome! Bless the low euro right now! I know I've said this before, but I really really believe in waiting. If you want something enough it will find its way to you. I've waited so long for these particular boots and finally the right time, connections, opportunity and currency rate came along! I know I will get a lot more wear out of these than the ash pull-on boot, but they will always be in my heart.

I'm a little sad to hear about the grey boots, oh well. But cool that you got the ones you really wanted. They look cool! As does the head-board too.

i really want those [black] boots...
but can i ask where did you get them from? all sources i know are sold out...

Pamela said...

I have these too (in Toronto). Wear them constantly. Even all day gallery-going and shopping in New York. Comfortable. Definitely worth waiting for!

jas said...

Wow, both are amazing! Love your tights, too.

Persephone said...

Both are lovely - I too always seem to end up with the black ankle boot version of whatever shoe I am seeking out.

DJ said...

Those are so fantastic! I've been wanting them for ages and have never been able to get my hands on a pair! Congrats.

The light coloured ones are divine, but so hard to wear in a rainforest climate!

Those grey ones are incredible. I would be happy just to hold them for a little while.

Is that you in the photo? I really like how you paired it with those grey leggings.

-h: I know. I still wish I could have kept them but they were too expensive just to "have"

divinitus: what size are you?

pamela: yes, they are comfy! Perfect because I walk a lot.

jas: thanks!

persephone: I know, I do too to some extent.

dj: yes, I often don't think about weather when I buy things. Rain be damned, I love suede boots!!!

puritan impulse: yes, they are beautiful to hold and smell! Not me in the top picture with them on, pic is from rick owens ny
