As advertised in the title, here are my new boots for which I was willing to only eat pasta and swear off a big part of social life the entire month (that's why you get lots of library elevator outfit pictures, at least books are free!). I simply didn't want to pass them and my gut was telling me that they would sell out quickly. So when a couple of weeks ago, I started placing a few calls here and there to check on my size availability to be answered that there was only one last 38 at the Bastille store, I shut down the voice of reason and headed East side fast.
It was a big blow to my budget and my only justification relies on the fact that this is the kind of boots I know I'll wear a lot. I will reach break even in a matter of months because they're "classics with a twist" as the saying goes, with their roundish-almond toe, block heel with sensible and walkable height. No fussy details, just a vintage wooden heel to add a little contrast. Voilà, c'est tout.
That means that they will be great for week-ends and off days shenanigans yet sleek and conservative enough for the office as well. Double check for versatility.
Isabel Marant Etoile "Drew" boots
First time out yesterday: I still love them even if they hurt a bit (need another breaking in session to reach comfortable status), not to mention the leather sole was slippery and had me walking very very cautiously so a rubber fix by the cobbler is to be planned.
