Searching for the perfect black booties...

August 20, 2013

I have been on the lookout for just the right black ankle boots for quite some time now. I impulsively bought a pair of faux-leather, black Rachel Comey knock-offs from AEO two years ago only to realize, well, you get what you pay for. So while I can't quite afford a pair of Acne Pistols, there must be something middle-of-the-road worth investing in. You would think something so simple would be easy, but it has proven quite tricky. The wrong ankle opening and it looks sloppy. Too high a heel and it loses it's wearability. Um, hello no drivers license and European cobblestones! Or as is so often the case for me, it is perfect... only they don't come in my size (like numbers 1, 3 and 4. really, you guys suck). I thought I wanted suede with a decent heel, but the eye-catching details - like the gold on the heel or the animal accents - are really quite appealing too. Although, perhaps a simple, classic shape, like Madewell's ever-popular pair, is the way to go...
