By request of the domestic and laboratory goddess, I am posting here a picture of my recent acquisition, a pair of ankle boots, as mentioned in my last post. It’s no shoe of the week, but it’s the best this hairy-legged feminazi can offer.
The adorable cat next to the boots is Bodhi, who often behaves as if he were a dog, so it’s appropriate to have him posed next to the Hush Puppies boots. The style is Windermere, almost sans heel as is appropriate for my arthritic toe joints. I did NOT pay $94.95 for my boots, however. $69.95 on sale at Macy’s, plus 15% off for using my Macy’s card! Yay! That may still be too much, who knows, but the purchase was absolutely necessitated by the extraordinary savings I made on another purchase, see below.
According to this site,
The ‘Windermere’ ankle boot offers clean and simple style to perfectly complete any cool weather ensemble.
More importantly, it also offers
Cushioned latex footbed with breathable metallic lining and built-in arch cookie for comfort and support.
Arch cookie? Yummmm……
I will be completing my cool weather ensemble on Christmas Eve with these spiffy booties. Yesterday I bought a new dress to wear on Christmas Eve, because we are going to candlelight service with Mr. Zuska’s parents. I don’t seem to have anything appropriate to wear to a church, a consequence of being out of work for five years and losing twenty pounds or so, which combined to cause all my dress clothes to evaporate. The dress was on sale! Half off! Plus 20% for using my Macy’s card! It was practically free! The new dress, of course, did not go with any existing pair of shoes I own. Hence the boots – which cost more than the dress. Plus some new opaque tights in an appropriate shade.
I have been secretly coveting a little pair of ankle boots for about two years but just couldn’t justify the expense. Where would I wear them – to the kitchen to make coffee? down to the basement to scoop cat litter? I really hesitated on buying these. I thought, okay, for two years you’ve wanted ankle boots and now in five minutes you are making a decision that these are it? And then I thought, what the heck. It’s not like I can wear any of the really stylish ones, what with the arthritic toes and all. These don’t hurt, and they don’t look half bad. Not up to domestic and laboratory goddess speed, but they’ll do.
