Every once in awhile, I decide there’s some item I actually want badly enough to make a foray into a department store or two. A few months ago, it was boots. I wanted a pair of non-Western-style boots to wear with skirts on the occasional colder days. I thought my requirements were pretty simple: leather, moderate-to-low heel, side zipper, attractive design suitable for work. Below is a small sample of what I found.
Ok, I realize the last couple of pictures aren’t of boots, but shoe departments any more are like sartorial train wrecks – absolutely horrible, but you just can’t look away. When I was 20-something, heels this high were referred to as “hooker shoes”. I would feel way older except that my now-20-something daughter agrees with me.
I still don’t have any dress boots.
