These boots have single handily changed my style and how I look at everything in my closet. I found them in the clearance rack at Famous Footwear and I stared at them for the longest time before finally deciding to give them a try.
Some background: I've been a tomboy most of my life. It's just the past few years that I've started wearing skirts and dresses more on a regular basis, but I have always had such a love/hate relationship with motorcycle boots. I love them and the look they give, but I have short, stumpy legs and well, it just doesn't work. So I've waited out the boots, wishing for the perfect pair to come along.
They finally came along. I tried these boots on and was in love.
I tried them with most of my closet on last night and am so excited about the change they bring and they feel so true to my inner self and my personal style and they will work all year round. I wished I had gotten a better shot, but I have a feeling that these boys will be showing up a lot more!
In other news, I think I shrank my dress in the wash. I was pretty sure it came close to my knees last time I wore it and now, well, heh. It is now a dark tights only kinda dress! I thought throwing my big carhart shirt over it toned down the shortness of it though.
So, what style item changed your life? Shoes, a dress, a piece of jewelry? I'm curious to know!
PS- sorry about all of the photos! I was having a bit too much fun in my new boots!
