Yes, Ma'am!

Good-natured and obedient person that I am, I had to obey the Empress's orders and get the boots that she had also had her eyes on but as they were too loose on her calves - not exactly a dilemma that I am often faced with- did not buy. "You MUST buy them", she insisted. "They are SO cool! And 50% off". I tried them on on Friday, but reasoned with myself (having just bought the gorgeous grey Coccinelle bag the previous day) at first that they were more or less black and I did own two pairs of black boots, one of which I wore a lot and one I hardly ever wore because the heel was too high for my comfort. I did however return there on Monday, wearing a skirt, just to see what they looked like paired with a skirt. Well and guess what - on second thought, they appeared more granite grey than black and what with the fancy elastic detail were, like, totally different. Deal!

Tardi's boots (onemorehandbag) Today, the Gazelle and I went to Peek & Cloppenburg in our lunch-break, armed with a €10 voucher each which the nice and thoughtful people of P&C had sent us (yep, easy marketing prey and all that...) and the plan was to have a look at knitted dresses or long tops. What I ended up buying was a pair of skinny Pepe jeans (style "thirty-seven" if you are curious) that came with a feather key-fob (?) to match the feather stitching on the back pockets and waistband and which are just crying out to be paired with the boots. Don't you agree?
