Last shoe post of the year (DV)

I spent an uncomfortable night due to the exertions of the day before, and woke up with a strong desire to go out and buy myself a pair of black suede boots. Considering the recent state of my bank balance, I wasn't going to give in to this desire, but then my father called to tell me that he was out of cigarettes again. There are many shoe shops between my place and my father's...

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!

But they look comfortable and fun! I have one lone purse by the Hilfiger label. I got it during the craze for teeny, tiny purses a few years ago. (Now bowling ball-sized bags are in.) This purse gets an amazing amount of necessities in it, and retains its small status. So this is like my anti-Calvin Klein position. I have two pairs of thick socks by CK that are perfect for winter shoes; other than that, I ignore the label.

Sometimes necessity makes us break our vows.

They are comfortable, and fun too, or so I think. But I was actually on the look-out for a more classically simple design, to replace my dressy black boots that after 2 1/2 years of wear and tear are sadly coming to the end of their usefulness. Never mind, these'll do splendidly for winter, and after that, who knows?

Thank you for the greeting - and for the lovely e-card too.

I think those look warm and sensible - so you still have an excuse to buy new dressy ones in another sale....

That's exactly what I was thinking!

I almost bought a white Tommy Hilfiger coat while in Canada one year. The price put me off, but it was nicely put together (hence the high price, no doubt. :P

My antipathy towards to label stems from a time in the early nineties when everyone, and I mean everyone, all of a sudden started wearing it. Everywhere you looked, there were people wearing those red, white and blue sweatshirts, and I just couldn't see why...it wasn't as if they looked particularly good in them, and I couldn't see why they'd pay those over the top prices for them. IMO, Tommy Hilfiger isn't a designer; he's just a clever marketing man.

Very cute boots! I have to admit that I don't much like Tommy Hilfiger myself, but there's an occasional piece of clothing, etc. that I do.

I wore the boots for the first time today, and I must admit they were a very good buy: comfy and warm, perfect for every day winter wear. I'm really pleased with them, and have forgiven them their label.

Thank you! & I like the new boots.

I'm very happy with these boots; they're just perfect for this time of year.

Hope your day was fab!
