My trip to NYC is just days away and with that in mind I have been busy prepping and preening. There are three basic elements I have been considering: Warmth (this Cali girl isn't used to 30 degree weather), Comfort (walk a mile in platforms.. ) and STYLE (most imperative).
Taking into consideration all three I have been in pursuit of the perfect boots. I have searched high and low - online, specialty shoe shops, favorite cheap shoe stores, my reliable go-to brands (Steve Madden, Aldo) ..... basically everywhere with no luck. I had a certain boot in mind - reminiscent of a combat boot with, dare I say it, "a 90's grunge vibe".
After days and weeks of searching I finally stopped into a local thrift store.. and there were my perfect pair of 90's "My So Called Life" boots.
So before I take them to see the big apple, I thought it would be a good idea to test the three essentials - Warmth, Comfort and Style. Which meant wearing them the entire weekend (seriously, I didn't take them off expect to sleep).
And yes they passed the test.. now on to New York...
