They aren't exactly what I had in mind...granted, they are black and made of suede, but they are a bit more butch than I had intended. Also, they're Tommy Hilfiger. I don't like Tommy Hilfiger, I don't own a scrap of clothing bearing that label. Strangely enough, I do like these boots of his, though...very much.
Birthday shout-outs today to curiouswombat, skylar_muc and vegmb: have a marvelous day, ladies, and may the celebratory cheer last throughout the year!
