emma: day 10 \ shoeaday
little brown peter pan boots with a buckle. i knew i had to snag these when they were on a clearance and then marked down again at nine west. given the way that clothes have trended to the 90s recently, i knew that these little gems would be hot. if it was in goodwill when i was a kid and i was appalled by it, chances are now that i’m going to be amazed by it. i mine for new fashion ideas by remembering those moments.
sure enough, here we are a couple of seasons later, getting ready for fall, and i spot them in the window at urban outfitters. i didn’t even bother to go in to look at the price tag because i already knew vengeance was mine! ha! and then i saw them at forever 21. golden. these remind me of the kind of shoes that a hippie art teacher would wear with a broomstick skirt and oversize silver belt with turquoise embellishment plus paint speckled reading glasses on a long chain. that will prob be me one day, so why not get started now?
