took advantage of the overcast, not-too-hot weather last sunday to wear leather.
and black, lots of it.
i gave up on the search for the Ann Demeulemeester laceup boots at a decent
price on eBay and instead settled for the Jeffrey Campbell knockoffs. i really
want them in the original camel color anyway, so that search is ongoing. i
took these to the cobbler to chop off about 2 inches since they came up too
high on my leg. aside from the cheap faux-wood heel, these aren't such a bad
substitute. plus i saved about $800.
