These boots are made for...

I had a moment today. A moment that makes you stop for half a second and wonder if the monkey controlling your brain has become intoxicated or fled the scene due to overzealous farting.

I looked damn good this morning. Fabulous. Hot even! Wearing jeans (tag says black, I say dark blue), with gold embroidered/sequin/bead butterflies on right hip, butt, and left leg. And a fitted black (I agree with this tag) polo, with a huge gold metallic print butterfly splashed across the chest. And my new boots. They're black. I have a shitty camera phone.

For the guys playing at home - blood red lace boyleg and matching bra.

Hot right?

And I have recently learned how to walk up and down stairs without looking like a drunk yeti and drunk monkey respectively.

So I was walking (read: strutting) into work today. Having managed to get from my car to the front door, walking both up and down stairs, without looking like a drunken anything. And I'm thinking I'm hot schitt. When I reach for the door the woman behind me says something about my shoes. I look down and feel smug pride. I'm so proud of my shoes.

And then the monkey in my skull wakes up and puts what she says together. I still have the stickers on the bottom of my shoes. BOTH of them. Ooops. All I can respond with is 'they're very new.' How lame.

Cue the running away of the smug pride as my ego magically diminishes.

At least she noticed my boots.

I got tagged by Ingsoc.

Three things I like about summer
  1. I can show off my tats
  2. Sunshine, gardening and general lazing about wearing minor clothing
  3. cold showers. I never said I was normal.

Three things I dislike
  1. Shaving legs
  2. My inability tan
  3. Freaking hotness

Warm much?

Love the boots...I wear RMs nearly everyday :)

Mel said...

Oooh, I like the chocolatey-browness that your boots have shown up as on the camera phone. But I'm sure they're very nice in black too.

Natalia said...

Those are some kick-ass boots. And that person had to be staring pretty hard at them to notice the stickers. That just goes to show how hot they are.

And yaay pic :)

Once, someone noted that the sticker on the bottom of my boots read DISPLAY. Yes, I'm cheap. I got a discount on them.

Webmiztris said...

ha! I've left the tags on by accident before! how embarrasing to see the $39.99 slashed to $29.99 down to $19.99 down to $9.99; no? lol

Lowry said...

Which tats? :)

Trundling Grunt said...

Cool boots. As to the sticker thing - almost as bad as having the sale/size tag sticking out of your clothes.

Sweet boots! I think so, anyway . . .

I don't know much about fashion. I'm wearing a member's only jacket right now.

Ingsoc - I have no idea what you're talking about *whistles aimlessly*

Scorpy - I wear blundstones at work. I go from hot boots to work boots. Its quite strange

Mel - you can thank my crap camera for that.

Natalia - I'm not that slack on pictures (am I?)

Prof - yes, yes they are.

Mist - a bargain is a bargain. And it allows you to save money so you can buy another pair of shoes faster!

Miztris - If you look closely you can still see the damn tags on the boots.

Lowry - I have two, on my back. I'll eventually blog about them

Grunt - if I gave a damn it would have been mortifying

Kenneth - its pretty hard to screw up boots. Not impossible, but difficult.

Cazzie - you win.

I hear you on that inability to tan bit. I often think about how nice it would be to have a little melanin to call my own.
