Hi, Bloggy pals. I have a job for you today. Up for the challenge? I hope so. Because I need help.
My mom wants me to pick out a pair of boots for her to buy me for Christmas. (For those of you keeping track, NO, boots were NOT on my Wish List. But I guess I kind of need them more than a set of knives or a Tassimo. I guess. But not more than I need The Big Bang Theory, Season 2. Or The Vampire Diaries seasons, which I have added to the list since then.)
(PS – to my sister, Kara, who keeps emailing me asking for my Christmas list…have you not read the Wish List post? Excellent ideas can be found there. Go. Shop.)
Anyways. Yes, the boots. I need help. I’m going to post pictures of the boots that caught my eye on the Sears website, and you tell me which ones you like. Please & thank you.
Contestant #1 ($79.99)
I’m not sure if I can wear a boot like this. It’s kind of fancy, with all the buckles. And I’ve never owned a high boot before. But if I had to pick a high boot (which I think I maybe might want), this one appeals to me.
Contestant #2 ($99.99)
A little shorter, and I like the fur trim. But they’re suede, and I don’t know if I have the patience to care for a pair of suede boots. They’re high maintenance.
I love these stylish mukluks, with all the fur, especially the furry balls. HA! No. These are not a contestant, they just make me laugh.
Contestant #4 ($49.99)
Hmm…Also suede-y looking, so high maintenance, but I like that they’re not too tall, not too short, and again that fur trim catches my eye. Disappointed that there are no furry balls, though.
Contestant #5 ($69.99)
I picked these out, but now I don’t think I like them. They’re not suede-y, so that’s a plus, but I think they kind of look like witch boots.
Contestant #6 ($159.99)
I love these. LOVE these. But they cost way more than I would ever want my mother to spend on boots for me. Plus, I think I need black boots, and I think these only come in brown. *sigh*
Contestant # 7 ($49.99)
Hmm…I like the slouchy look of these. But the issue with high boots is that I have fat calves, and I have no idea if these would fit. But I think these are a very strong contestant for the high boots. No issues with suede here.
Contestant #8 ($69.99)
I kind of love these, except for the laces. I have no patience for laces. Plus, these are called “Military style” and I’m not sure if I’m a Military style kind of girl.
Contestant #9 ($129.99)
Are you sick of looking at boots yet? Me too. But I like the black one on the far right. However, it’s suede, so I have those aforementioned suede issues. It’s pretty cool for a high boot. As long as the calves fit.
Contestant #10 ($99.99)
Okay, I really don’t know if I want a high boot or a short boot, but these are probably my favourite of the short boot selections. The only thing is I think these are very similar to the last pair of boots I got, back in my College days. Maybe I should be looking for something a little more mature than the College boots?
Alrighty. So now that I’ve provided you with all that helpful insight (ha! I don’t know if I want short, mid, or tall, black or brown, laces or not, suede-y or not…) PLEASE pick for me. Or make other suggestions. I truly have no idea what I want.
Now, I do have some good news…According to the Payless website, THEY STILL CARRY MY FAVOURITE SHOES! The exact same ones that I busted up on Saturday night! The exact same ones that I bought 3 or 4 years ago! Wahooooooooo! I’m going to maybe buy 3 pairs. They’re only $19.99, so clearly, very high quality. ;)
My shoe loves.
And now, in closing, to celebrate American Thanksgiving, I’m going to share with you something I’ve been very thankful for this week.
Oh, get over it. I didn’t post the picture yesterday.
Happy Thanksgiving to my American Bloggy Friends! Enjoy your turkey lurkey! :)
