Gentile Fashionista

I bought a pair of boots this past December which look almost like this, but to the knee:

I already had a pair of brown, mid-calf boots, like these without the stitching:

I put them together with a pair of modern fit, black brushed cotton (with a tiny bit of spandex- 3%) cropped pants with a three inch side vent, a cropped, long- sleeved, extended cuff, charcoal cowl-neck sweater for a look similar to this:

When I wore this to church, I could see the people glancing at the cropped pants and the boots, and I know they thought I was either just weird, or hadn't taken notice of the length of my pants before I put them on.

Sigh....southern UT- the haute couture hot-spot.

P.S. While looking for an image of my boots, I found these:
With a pair of worn 501's and a white t-shirt- perfect :D

Girl, I am with you. Once, when R and I had only been married about a year, I left E with him and went to a Bible study with some friends.

When I arrived home, he had taken every pair of my shoes and neatly lined them up in the living room. It was soooo funny! I now try to give away a pair of shoes for every new pair that I purchase. I am weaning it down.

Awwww (kicking feet at mock dirt), thanks, Ann :D What size do you wear?

WOW I love Boots!!! The second pair are my favorite I think.... The first ones are great too, but then again the last pair have that southern flare to them... UMMM okay they are all cute!!

I like your style, but I'm a northeasterner. I had just seen that boot-cropped-pant look in a magazine. It isn't a fashion faux-pas if the pants overlap the boots(said the article).

My guess is that you have 10 pairs of boots that are similar, but just "different enough".

If my assumption is incorrect, will you marry me?

The pants were long enough to just overlap the top of the boots- so I had that covered. Funny, Joyella, "our friend's" cousin is a buyer for a major department store. I told him that I didn't quite like UGG boots and preferred my stilettos. He told me that Ugg's were hot like three years ago, and to stick with the stilettos. Not that I have to be high fashion; I just thought it was funny that he thought it would matter to me when I was just commenting on how I didn't like the cavegirl look (very prevalent here).

Hey, Joe! How are ya? Well, I have only four pair of boots (2 heeled and 2 not)- and if I had my way, the bottom pair would soon be added. However, I do wear them frequently. I don't like to buy something just to wear it once or twice, so your assumption is incorrect; however, I am already head-over-heels-in-love and married, but I know you were jesting :D

In the fall I may need your expertise in fashion again. I plan on being a size 10 or smaller and I'll need new clothes. May have to come to Vegas and spend a night or two....

So you're saying that when we meet in RL (I'm aiming for April BTW) I should dress for the occasion?

Rae- I wear a size 7. In the words of your mother, I am "very petite." Which just means, I'm short!
